How To Bet On Sports — For Beginners To Advanced Players

There are numerous US sports betting sites on the web where you can get sports betting advice or picks. At Sports Handle, we enjoy covering sports betting regulation and legislation in addition to providing analysis on sports law and the industry as a whole.

We’re also avid sports bettors ourselves. This provides you with insight that traditional media coverage cannot. We offer predictions and breakdowns for most major sports and seek to help out both the casual and experienced bettor, without ever charging you for picks and access to the most up to date odds on the market. We also offer a glossary for sports wagering in two parts — here’s 101 for the beginners and intermediates and 201 for more seasoned sports bettors.

Everyone has a different betting strategy, whether they are betting on the NFL games, NBA games, MLB, college football, or any other sport. Our team of writers will give you fact-based, solid analysis of games that will make you a smarter bettor so that when your state finally comes around to offering the opportunity wager on your favorite sports, you’ll be locked and loaded with far more insight that the average Jane or Joe.
