What Is The Easiest Sport To Bet On?


Sports bettors always want to know where the best place is to make profits or “the easiest sport to bet on.” It’s a timeless question and one that is asked frequently today.

There is no easy answer to this question, but we will break down the top sports and let you know which sports may offer the most substantial edges to gamblers.


As it is internationally known, soccer or football is the most popular and most wagered sport in the world. The edges in soccer depend heavily on your skills as a handicapper and the leagues you are attacking.

You will rarely find inside information or aspects not factored into the betting odds when wagering on top-level domestic leagues, such as the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, or the Bundesliga.

However, your edge may get a bit larger with smaller leagues. With all that said, there are plenty of advantages to be had when betting soccer.


Betting limits for hockey are notoriously low compared to other sports, and that’s because it is a sport where sharps have a massive edge. The NHL, by far the most-watched hockey league in the world, still has betting limits as low as $1,000 for major markets, at most sportsbooks.

Hockey isn’t natural to pick up and learn, but for those who understand the sport and find value in betting markets, it can be immensely profitable.


There are many edges to be had when betting basketball, as the game is genuinely worldwide. Betting limits are also exceptionally high at some sportsbooks for major leagues such as the NBA.

These markets are rather efficient compared to smaller market leagues, such as many European leagues, South American, and domestic leagues in Asia.

If you know these leagues well, you may find more substantial edges, especially when it comes to sportsbooks that predominantly cater to Americans or English-speaking countries.

NBA markets are much more efficient than these smaller leagues. There is value to be found there, but the market is more efficient when it comes to American sports.


The diamond is always a favorite of professional-level sports bettors. There are so many betting opportunities - oddsmakers can’t be ahead of the sharps. However, to the average bettors, baseball may be a harder sport to earn a profit.

Smaller leagues, such as Mexican or Caribbean baseball, may offer more significant edges for those that can handicap these leagues. If you can find higher betting limits, that is even better.

Baseball can be a real money-maker if you can find an edge, but that is not easy. However, it’s important to remember that you can win money at baseball with a far lower breakeven percentage than other sports.

American Football

American football or NFL football and college football have the fewest number of wagering opportunities, but they offer the most considerable edge to gamblers. These markets are insanely high liquidity, and bettors may also get better odds due to public influence.

There is also value throughout the week when it comes to betting American football. Even a few minutes before tip, bettors may find off-market odds available at some online sportsbooks.

With significant betting limits and lots of value to be found throughout the week - the NFL is easily the easy sport to bet on and earn a profit.
