NHL mobile betting was long an afterthought when compared to American sports leagues like the NFL, MLB, and NBA. That is quickly changing, however, due to a number of reasons, including nationally televised games, special events like the Winter Classic and Stadium Series, and an influx of young, talented players such as Jonathan Toews, Sidney Crosby, Patrick Kane, Drew Doughty, Alex Ovechkin, and more.
The NHL league itself is enjoying an unprecedented popularity in itself, but NHL wagering is on a meteoric rise. One factor leading to an increase in hockey betting is daily fantasy sports where people are paying attention to the NHL on an everyday basis. Beyond that, the ability to do NHL mobile wagering means every night there is an opportunity to make money no matter where you are. U.S. punters can get in on the action using traditional U.S. bookmakers or the new breed of bitcoin sports betting sites.
Tech and media giant Yahoo is expanding its live sports offering by streaming MLB and NHL matches through the revamped Yahoo Sports mobile app. Available to both iPhone and Android users, the completely redesigned app offers access to hundreds of live streams of the world’s premier baseball and ice hockey competitions.
In addition to a live match-of-the-day feed, MLB connoisseurs will be given a live streaming guide with access to additional games. That way, Yahoo says, baseball fans will no longer have to scour the internet trying to find the game they want to watch. If you've wagered on either a baseball or hockey game, you now also watch all the action unfold on your tablet or smartphone.
From the regular season debut in October to the Finals in June, NBA mobile betting offers the opportunity for profit every day of the week. The 82 game regular season of professional basketball provides a long-term chance to really study a team's trends, making winning at NBA Smart phone betting arguably the most efficient of any of the major American sports.
One of the best things about NBA mobile betting is that it's the sport where a single player has the most impact on your outcome. Granted, NFL quarterbacks have a big impact on football games and riding a hot MLB pitcher in baseball is important but it doesn't compare to the 5-on-5 action of the NBA. If Kevin Durant, LeBron James, or Stephen Curry have huge scoring nights, there's a pretty good chance you're going to win your wager if you bet on them.
Smartwatches are the latest development in wearable technology, allowing their wearers to perform all of the functions essential to them without needing to lug a smartphone, tablet, or computer around with them. That level of convenience has extended to the world of mobile sports betting, with iOS and Android smartwatch apps allowing players to place wagers, check scores and get team news from their wrists.
Right now the only wearable sports apps available are for the Apple Watch but it's only a matter of time before these apps are also available for the Android smartwatches like the Samsung Galaxy Gear, Moto 360 and Sony SmartWatch. These top five Apple Watch sports betting apps are great for not just placing bets, but tracking scores, getting live in-play odds, and researching picks.
Major League Baseball will always be considered a team sport, but perhaps in no other 'team' event will the outcome rely so heavily on one player – the pitcher. It's for this reason that MLB mobile betting is arguably the best athletic event to take advantage of wagering from your Smart phone. You're out watching the game, you see a pitcher start to tire and waver, you reach for your phone and before the opposing batter can crank out his grand slam you're locked in for incredible profit.
Pokemon Go is far and away the most popular mobile app on the market right now, with players around the world traveling around their surrounding communities to search for digital monsters to add to their collection, and spending loads of real money to do so. Now an enterprising sportsbook has decided to emulate the craze with a great twist on what makes Pokemon Go popular by mashing up the idea of Pokemon Go with rewards that sports bettors will want to catch.
The NFL has long reigned supreme when it comes to major sports viewership within the U.S but the league has seen its global presence rise tremendously over the last few years. Part of the increase in popularity has to do with NFL games being played in Europe, Mexico, Canada, etc. but a majority of the expansion of the NFL is because the league has become an international betting sensation much like the English Premier Soccer League.
NFL betting in the United States isn't going anywhere either. Even if some United States citizens still have a hard time finding a place to make a wager (online bitcoin casinos are helping in that aspect), NFL mobile betting has become more efficient than ever. Smart phone apps make placing an NFL bet a task that can be accomplished literally in seconds with clarity, convenience, and confirmation – the '3 Cs' of betting that will hopefully lead to the 4th C (cash).
