Online betting is a great way for Florida sports fans to bet

0

The legalization of sports betting in 2018 marked a new era for the industry. In the past, American sports fans could only bet on the Super Bowl, March Madness and the World Series through Caribbean-based offshore sportsbooks.

In the age of legal sports betting, you can predict sports matches through a mobile app. More importantly, you can bet on a licensed USA betting site.

Unfortunately, sports betting is not yet legal in Florida. However, it is legal in over 30 states nationwide, including New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Delaware, Connecticut, and Illinois.

So where can I bet on the Super Bowl in Florida? Although Florida does not yet allow sports betting, it does not prohibit its citizens from betting via offshore sportsbooks like Betway, Bovada and BetUS.

You also have the option of driving out of state to bet in Nevada, Maryland, Iowa and all the states mentioned above. Before placing your first bet, however, read this guide on how to do so safely.

Choose a trustworthy bookmaker

Florida’s only neighboring states, Georgia and Alabama, do not allow sports betting. If you want to bet in a physical casino, you will have to go to Tennessee, Louisiana or Arkansas.

Luckily, you don’t really have to leave home to bet on sports in 2022. You can bet online at a secure offshore betting site. How do you identify a safe betting site?

Find a license. Licensed betting sites must follow strict security rules. For example, they need to protect your data by encrypting their websites. In addition, they must keep your personal information confidential.

Another reason to choose a reputable bookmaker is that you want genuine services. Nobody wants to lose money with a bookie that scams people. Additionally, you want a bookmaker that processes your withdrawals quickly and offers competitive odds.

Secure your account with a password

Betting sites can encrypt your data to hide from hackers. But you should also set a strong password to further secure your personal information. Many betting apps these days also offer two-factor authentication.

With Two-FA, anyone who wants to access your account must provide a security code sent to your email address or mobile number. It can also be sent to an app such as the Google Authenticator app.

Another way to secure your betting account is to activate an anti-phishing code if available. This code will help you identify the emails of the real bookmaker. Without such a code, you could fall victim to phishing scams.

Choose a reliable payment method

After securing your account, the next step is to fund your account. Modern betting sites offer a wide range of payment options:

  • Credit/debit cards
  • Digital wallets
  • Payment
  • Crypto

You can use Visa, MasterCard or Discover at most US betting sites. Or you can opt for PayPal, Skrill, Google Pay and Neteller if you prefer to use a digital wallet.

When choosing a payment method, pay attention to several things: security, ease of use, speed, limits and fees. You want a secure and trustworthy payment company like PayPal to handle your deposits and withdrawals.

Second, it must support friendly limits, say $10 to $10,000. While it accepts minimum deposits of $100 and above, it might not be suitable for people on a budget. Then there are the fees: the best payment companies have little to no fees.

Create a budget

Choosing a good payment method is important. But creating a betting budget is even more important. Protecting your money starts with setting up an appropriate amount of money for sports betting.

By appropriate, we mean that you should bet with money that you can afford to lose. Also, this money shouldn’t be money you need for bills, medical emergencies, or even investments.

Set your betting budget with the money you usually spend on weekend getaways or unnecessary hobbies. Let’s say you spend $200 on entertainment subscriptions that you barely use. You can cut some subscriptions and use the money to start your betting hobby.

Find out how sports betting works

For many sports bettors, budgeting isn’t their biggest problem. The main problem is that they lose so many bets. To avoid this problem, start by learning everything there is to know about sports betting.

What sports can you bet on? If you’re like many Americans, your answer is the major leagues: NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA and MLS. However, you can also bet on tennis, boxing, international football, lacrosse and esports.

Choose one or two sports to focus on. In this way, you can become an expert in predicting this sport and thus increase your profitability. In addition to specializing in a league, specialize in a few types of bets.

The thing is, there are way too many types of bets in sports betting today. You are not just limited to match winners (money line). Now you can also predict total points, parlays, spreads and props.

Choosing a specific type of bet also helps you become better at winning. That said, learn more tricks to improve your profits as a bettor.

Select bonuses carefully

Bonuses are an integral part of today’s sports betting life. Bookmakers across the country are welcoming new customers with free bets and deposit-based bonuses.

Bonuses and free bets allow you to bet for real money without using your bankroll. At first glance, this looks like a bargain for punters. However, most betting sites have terms and conditions for their bonuses.

First, there are simple rules like creating an account and making your first deposit. Then there are conditions for using their bonuses:

  • Minimum odds
  • Applied Games
  • Withdrawal limit
  • Wagering requirements
  • Period of validity

Wagering requirements are the most important rule. It dictates how many times you must play a bonus before you can withdraw your winnings.

That said, find a bookmaker with plenty of fair bonuses. Although you can be sure of winning a welcome bonus, only the best bookmakers offer cash back, parlay boosters, loyalty programs and VIP rewards.
