History of Sport Betting

Recommended Posts

I never thought about this before, but I would imagine it started with some form of horse racing as a sport and then progressed to informal bets on sports games between friends, and then companies emerged to capitalise on the trend. That would be my guess :D

A lot of good information in those articles and I found some interesting facts I didn't new before. It's crazy to find out Sports betting is so old and even ancients people were placing bets 2000 years ago on Olympic races. I saw that before in movies but didn't thought it was quite true

Sports betting has been around for as long as sports have existed,

The Greeks’ love of sports led them to introduce the Olympics to the world as well as the earliest records of betting on athletic competitions.

From the Greeks, sports betting spread to ancient Rome where it was eventually accepted even legalized.

so it started from Greeks.

what else you want to know about sports betting?

The history of sports betting is prehistoric oi have no doubt. I mean im not going to give enough of a gander to really answer this question. But to me its like the question when was prostitution first thought of. Any type of competition that recognizes a winner will no doubt have people trying to profit without the effort needed to compete. That can be taken as a negative or seen as a positive. If you find a thing that has odds built into it you will almost immediately stumble into a thing playing those odds.

Cant you see a Mayan nudging his fellow Maya and gingerly saying "three husks says his head bounces and misses the last step"

I sure can. And i bet it doesn't.
