Sports betting is popular just about everywhere in the world, even in countries where it is totally or mostly illegal. People will bet on just about any sport, from the professional to amateur level, but there are a few sports that are among the most popular for the betting public.
Soccer is among the most bet-on sports largely because it is one of the most played and most watched sport in the world. Even though soccer may not be the most popular sport in the U.S., it is the most popular sport in some of the most populous places around the world. Soccer also is popular in places where people have a fair amount of money they can afford to risk on betting.
Another very popular sport to bet on is American football, especially the National Football League. Millions of dollars are wagered on games every week both legally and illegally, and the Super Bowl brings in tremendous amounts of money. Though American football doesn't have wide popularity outside the U.S., it still is a popular sport to bet on even in other countries.
Possibly the second-most popular team sport in the world after soccer is basketball. Though basketball is most popular in America, it has a wide following in much of the world. That is a reason why basketball is a popular sport for people to bet on. There is a lot of betting interest in the National Basketball Association, but many people also bet on pro basketball games in other countries and on international competitions such as the Olympics.
