Sports betting, or the act of gambling money on a sports game is extremely popular in countries all over the world. One of the biggest forms of betting taking place today is on online applications. The Indian Premier League (IPL) has given rise to a new form of betting for cricket fans....

Most people have probably placed a sports bet with their friends and family and didn’t even realize it. Have you ever bet someone INR 100 or your lunch on who would win a cricket or football game? If you did, you’ve made a sports bet. Sports Betting has been going on for centuries. For as long as there have been people playing sports, there have also been people betting on them. The reasons why people bet on sports often vary from person to person. Some people bet for entertainment purposes while others wager on the profit potential.  Let's have a look at some common reasons why people bet on sports: Entertainment One of the main reasons why people bet on sports is the entertainment value. Quite simply because it's fun. As much as live sports are full of excitement and fun, a small wager can amp it up even more. For some bettors it's more of a hobby than just winning money. They are happy just as long as they’re having fun. They view sports betting as a form of entertainment like any other, and their losses are simply the cost of that entertainment. Profit Potential Well, the best part about sports betting is the potential to make some money. If you’re correct on your bets, you’ll win money. Naturally, that applies in reverse, too. However, the chance to earn a profit keeps folks engaged and leaves them coming back for more. You have the ability to win, regardless of the size of your wallet. You are free to bet as often or  as little as you would like.  Skill in the Game All forms of bets come with risks but also offer a chance of winning money. A lot of people have trained themselves to become professional sports bettors. People have learned to go through stats and strategy, to gain a statistical edge in your match. Sports betting is a mental challenge that can prove to be quite stimulating. It’s possible to win money without relying solely on luck. Your fate is in your own hands, and with the right approach, it’s possible to win money on a regular and consistent basis. Satisfaction The simple joy of being right, is quite satisfying. Just like those who bet for fun, there are those who solely take up challenges to be right. They obviously appreciate the money they win from their successful wagers, but they appreciate the sense of satisfaction even more. There’s nothing more satisfying than predicting an upset. There are many reasons why people choose to bet on sports, but these are the most relatable reasons that attract bettors. These reasons can also be applied to poker, casino games, rummy and much more. It’s a fun pastime for some and can be quite rewarding for professionals. Sports betting in India is mainly illegal except for betting on horse races. India’s Supreme Court has ruled horse racing a game of skill and therefore legal. However, all other sports betting is based on the laws of the individual states or the general laws of India. For more updates on Sports betting, keep reading GutshotMagazine.com Sports Betting
