The Becoming of Sports Betting

Oct 4, 2007
Sports betting is a wide spread and accepted way of gambling. It is national accepted in the United States where you're able to bet on almost every sports available be it Basketball, baseball, Cricket, Tennis, Football, Soccer, and the list continues.

In fact sports betting is such an infection disease that there is only one state in the entire USA that has placed government legalization to collegiate gambling legal and that's the state of Nevada. Collegiate gambling is betting on sports played in colleges. Not only does it create more competition it can also create unsportsmanlike like and untrustworthy sport players due to heavy betting on themselves, their team and their friends. You can say that betting on college sports spoils the fun of college games since it's only on an amateur level.

In the NCAA for example, college players are often tempted to be on themselves or team or opponents and as an attempt to win their wager point shaving maybe one of their game strategy. Point shaving is when a player purposely takes points off their score by missing shots to get a particular scoring spread. It's highly illegal and unsportsmanlike but sometimes people do it because of the money and others do it because they can.

If we take a look at the professional sports scene you'll also find that professional sports players also bet on themselves. Some do it legally and so will actually point shave. Betting can be good fun to the novice and occasional gambler but to some the urge of gambling is in their blood. Gambling can be highly addictive to some people and may even ruin their lives and others around them.
