If you have spent some time in the sports betting industry, then you have probably figured out that some sports are tougher to bet on than others. If you haven’t figured this out, then let me shine some light on some of the best sports to bet on.

I am Wunderdog, and I am a sports handicapper that has spent more than 20 years in the sports betting industry. Even though I offer sports betting picks on a wide range of sports, my best success rates are in the following sports below.

Football is the most popular sport to bet on in the United States, and it is also one of the best sports to bet on. There are several reasons for this, but one of the biggest reasons is that there is a ton of information available.

It is easy to find sports betting picks and previews on the internet, or I happen to know someone that delivers winning picks every gameday. This doesn’t mean that I will guarantee you a win, but I have been extremely successful.

Another reason that football is one of the best sports to bet on is because there are many betting options available. Sportsbooks love offering bets on both college football and NFL games, providing more opportunities to win big. 


Soccer is the most popular sport to bet on throughout the world, and it’s another one of the easiest sports to bet on. The reasons that betting on soccer is easy are much different than what we discussed with football. 

The biggest reason that betting on soccer can be beneficial is that there are only a few outcomes when it comes to soccer matches. This can make the decision-making process much simpler, and keeping things simple when betting on sports is always a good idea.

Another reason that soccer is one of the best sports to bet on is that there are leagues all over the world. Sportsbooks will feature almost all of these leagues, offering several betting options each day.

Tennis is a sport that not many people bet on in the US, but it’s popular in other parts of the world. If US sports bettors knew how easy it was to bet on, it would definitely be more popular.

There are a limited number of betting options in a tennis match, but the major tennis tournaments are extremely long and drawn out. This offers some great betting opportunities, especially in the first few rounds of a tournament. 

Horse Racing

Horse racing is another sport that is extremely popular to bet on, and it has traditionally been an easy sport to bet on. This doesn’t mean that you will always win big by betting on horse racing, but the chances are good for you to win some money.

Horse racing offers many betting options, and you don’t always have to pick the winner of a particular race. Obviously, I always try to deliver a winning horse in my picks, but I breakdown the other potential options as well. 


MMA  is similar to soccer and tennis in that there are only a few outcomes with each bout. The most popular bet is a bet placed on the winner, but method of victory is another popular bet that is placed as well. 

MMA is one of most popular sporting events to bet on, but the entire boxing industry has lost popularity over the last decade or so. I still provide customers with boxing betting picks any time that there is a big fight on the schedule.
