Video: Placing A Bet

Once you are ready to place a bet with an online sportsbook, follow these easy tips to get started.

If you reached this far in our video series about sports betting, you might be ready to give sports betting a go for the first time. In this video, we’ll teach you how to place a bet and the best tips to help you as you get started.

The act of placing a bet is simple and can be broken down into three steps:

  1. Decide which side of the wager you want to back
  2. Decide how much you are willing to stake on that wager
  3. Make your selection with the bookie

All sportsbooks and betting apps have slightly different processes, but for the most part it boils down to those easy steps

Most of our members are recreational bettors who want to have a bit of fun and learn a few tips and tricks on the way. We bet on sports because we love sports – obviously – but also for the thrill of placing a wager. There are also bettors who put more time and research into their selections with the sole intent of making a profit.

Before you pick up sports betting as a hobby, here are some things to be aware of:

  • Winning is not easy. No one can predict the future and anything can happen in a game
  • As with other forms of gambling, when following a strategy it is possible to make money long-term – but know that most sports bettors lose
  • That said, it’s still fun even if you lose but make sure to never bet more than you can afford to lose.

Here at BettingLadies.com we think that betting should always be fun – even if you don’t win all the time.

If it’s not fun, stop.
