All major verticals in the online gambling world use affiliate programs to promote their activities, and sports betting is no exception. On the contrary, this vertical is one of the most prominent and profitable niches for affiliate marketing.

Sportsbook Affiliate Programs offer a significant sustainable revenue opportunity to publishers who have relevant communities and can use their visibility and trust capital to drive new bettors to bookmakers.

This affiliation is a safe bet because there aren’t many nations in the world that don’t love sports, and this extends to the world of bettors where there are many customers who are passionate about sports betting and the thrill of betting on a particular outcome provides them with extra entertainment income.

In this section, we take a closer look at the sportsbook affiliate program. We will cover the advantages of these types of programs and what to expect in the future. In addition, we zoom in on the growth of sports betting, how sports betting works, and the more popular types of sports bets.

Sports Betting, A Booming Vertical

Online sports betting is a booming business whose value, according to Data Bridge Market Research, is currently estimated at $76.75 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $167.66 billion by 2029, registering a CAGR of 10.26% over the forecast period from 2022 to 2029.

Like many online activities, sports betting got a big boost from the 2020 global health emergency that challenged the sports betting industry to find additional sports to add to its betting menu to attract bettors. This enabled the rise of e-sports, such as FIFA and NBA2K, which appeal to traditional sports bettors, while bringing sportsbooks closer to e-sports enthusiasts.

Another factor that has driven online sports betting is technology. Digital apps make sports betting possible on mobile devices, which helps to accelerate growth. Bettors can place their bets online from any location and aren’t limited to any sport. This makes it easier than going to a traditional sports betting facility. 

Mobile sports betting also requires minimal technical knowledge. This results in a significant number of the population participating in competitive matches for enjoyment, entertainment, and revenue, attracting large audiences that will act as market drivers and increase opportunities for the sector’s growth rate.

Sports betting has gone from being an add-on in casinos to being ubiquitous.There will always be a sporting event to bet on, no matter the time of year or day. Large sums of money are exchanging hands daily across a wide array of sports. Sportsbooks are multiplying and professional teams and leagues have established direct partnerships with gambling companies. Today, it’s difficult to find a country or a kind of sport that is not involved in this industry of placing bets on the outcome.

Moreover, this vertical is incredibly diverse, to the point that within it several sub-niches can be distinguished such as regular sports betting, fantasy sports, e-sports, and even casino-type games, as well. Bettors can choose from a wide range of sports and types of bets. Some online sportsbooks offer payout bonuses, which can boost your winnings.

Without a doubt, legal sports betting adds an extra note of excitement to sports and increases the fun. In addition to entertainment, they give bettors the chance to make a profit and experience the thrill of having their money on the line.

How Does Sports Betting Work?

Sports betting is a wager of monetary value with the expectation of a prize of greater monetary value, subject to a possible outcome of a sporting event. The outcome can be simple, such as which team will win the game, or more complicated, such as how many points a team will win. 

Two entities are required for the sports betting activity to take place. One of them (the sportsbooks) provides the odds and accepts the bets, and the other one (the bettors) will be the one to put their money on the line and bet on a certain event. 

The basic premise of sports betting is simply to predict that something will happen during a match or event and risk money on the odds of it occurring. Sportsbooks set the odds on these events based on their probability of happening, allowing you to bet on the side you think will win and the sportsbook essentially takes the opposite of that opinion.

Once a bet has been placed, it is locked and will not be released until a team wins or some other condition is met, at which point the market is settled and winnings are allocated.

Which Sports to Bet on a Sportsbook

Online sportsbooks are available anywhere the Internet can be accessed, but they are also illegal in some parts of the world. Even in places where sports betting is legally restricted, most people can still place bets on online businesses.

There are different types of sportsbooks, which are mainly classified by sport and type of bet. Some sportsbooks specialize in one sport, while others are more generic, offering betting on a wide variety of sports. 

The most popular sports that bettors can bet on include football, American football, tennis basketball, baseball, hockey, track cycling, auto racing, golf, cricket, rugby union, rugby league, GAA, horse racing, greyhound racing, mixed martial arts (MMA), UFC & WWE, boxing (personal and amateur), levels NFL, e-sports and even fantasy sports leagues. Sports betting can also prolong non-athletic events, such as political elections and reality TV contests. 

At a sportsbook, there are many different sports betting options where you can try your luck. You don’t have to just bet on which team will win the game, but you can bet on the margin of victory, the total number of points scored, as well as many different types of bets.

The following is a brief description of some of the more popular types of sports betting.
