Easiest Sports to Bet On for Beginners

If you’ve stumbled upon this article on the internet, it’s probably because of two things; you want to get into sports betting, and you want to know which among the most popular sports is the easiest to get into. For this, I commend you. One of the most common reasons people don’t get into sports betting is that it looks intimidating.

We don’t blame you though. With all the jargon, technicalities, strategy, and knowledge required, it’s no wonder people look at sports betting as something intimidating. Before you get into the technicalities of sports betting, you need to pick a sport first since each form of sports betting is different. Of course, it’s always recommended that you pick the sport that you are most passionate and knowledgeable about.

It’s a huge advantage because one of the biggest hurdles for newbie sports bettors is learning the sport being played. You might be wondering, why would newbies bet on a sport they don’t know much about. It’s because of profitability. But that’s not what we are going to talk about today. Instead, we will discuss the easiest sports to do sports betting.

Football Betting

This is a controversial opinion, but as ironic as it is, football betting is one of the easiest forms of sports betting you can get into as a beginner. But why would many people argue about this notion? Like any form of sports betting, football betting is responsible for many losses among bettors.

But if it’s so hard to get a good ROI from, why is it considered easy? When we say easy to get into, we don’t mean that it’s easy to win cash from it. In fact, without the right knowledge and tips, you will be losing much more than winning.

But if you have the right knowledge and tips, it will be easy for you to give yourself a better chance at winning big. That said, all you have to do is to research about the right market, league, divisions, etc., and you’ll be set to play.

Not only that, but it’s pretty much predictable which teams go into the playoffs. These teams are commonly the favorites, which makes it easier for you to predict who will win. But, due to the low scoring nature of the game, upsets are fairly common. That said, you have to learn how to beat these upsets to win more bets.

Horse Racing

Horse racing is one of the most profitable sports out there, especially if you know how to play it right. That said, for newbies or casual bettors, horse racing can be a challenge to win because, at first glance, each horse has equal chances of winning.

However, as you gain more experience and knowledge, you will notice things you haven’t noticed before, which can be used to make an educated guess. With that in mind, you’ll be able to win more bets just by experience alone. Not only that, but you can also research some things that can help you with horse anatomy and performance, which can also be useful in predicting how a horse will perform during the race.

Tennis Betting

Tennis is one of the easiest sports betting you can get into. One of the main reasons for this is that the sport is largely dominated by big names like Serena Williams, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, etc. If you see a tennis match with one of them, you can already pretty much sum up who will win. That said, in the early phases of the tournament, it’s always a good decision to bet on these names, and if you want to win big, you also have to bet big money.

Why? Odds in tennis are purposefully made low by bookie because of the certainty level in every matchup with the names mentioned earlier. In short, winning on it is easy, but you won’t get as much money if you aren’t willing to bet big. Probably the only downside of the sport is that it’s one of those sports that are only seasonal, which means it’s only played at a certain time every year.


Betting on boxing is easy since there are only a few results after a boxing match. It’s pretty much just a money line since, basically, two contenders enter, one leaves. And also because a tie or a draw is usually out of the question. Not only that, but the market is very limited, which gives you only a few odds to choose from. However, this would also mean that you can’t shop odds.


Sports betting is fairly easy if you get the gist of it. Just pick a sport, pick your team, and place a money line bet; it’s that easy. Of course, winning it isn’t the same story, but that’s not the point of this article anyway. But to give you advice, if you want to win as much as you want to, researching is your best bet.
