Cricket has off lately gained enormous popularity in various parts of the world on account of various initiatives taken by the cricket governing body and some exciting tournaments such as Indian Premier League (IPL), the Ashes series between England and Australia, etc. As the sport becomes popular it is quite obvious that people would like to earn money by way of betting and so cricket is no exception to this.
Betting is certainly one of the easiest ways to earn money (or even moose at times) but it requires risk taking ability, experience, knowledge of the game and at times luck as well. There are different types of betting options available today such as cricket future bets, cricket prop bets, handicap betting, etc. and it is very important to be aware of these.
Betting has also become quite professional and there are various online sites which not only offer betting options but also offer insights and help in doing the right kind of betting but you have to register before you can place bets. It is important to know which type of betting will help you earn maximum (or will not have a big impact in case you end up losing).
Some of the sites are:
Ø Ladbrokes (Ladbrokes.com)
Ø Bet365 (www.bet365.com)
Ø William Hill (www.Williamhill.com)
Ø Betfair (www.betfair.com)
Ø BetOnline (www.betonline.com)
The above sites are among the widely popular and well known ones for any kind of betting on almost any sport including cricket. Most of these sites require registration after which only you can place bets. Sites like Ladbrokes even require some amount of deposit to be maintained.
The betting odds appear on the sites in the form of fractions or decimals. The fractional odds are expressed in fractions such as 10/1 which is said as ten-to-one ratio which means if you place a bet of $1, the return would be $10 in addition to the return of the stake which means the total amount you received if you win the bet is $11. Similarly in decimals it is represented as 1.50 which means you will get $1.50 for $1 stake in addition to refund of the stake which means total receipt is $2.50 if you win.
So select the right website which suits you the most, register and place the bet carefully so that you do not risk your entire earning and at the same time it helps you to stabilize your earning.
