Sports betting has come a long way, and it appeals to gamblers because it does not involve a fixed house edge. Here, your skill speaks louder than luck, just as is the case with live poker. Gambling, and sports betting, in particular, has taken the entire world by storm, and the industry is growing every day. As lucrative and accessible as it is, however, doesn’t mean that there are no risks involved. It is no wonder the industry’s road to success has not been smooth. In fact, many nations have banned sports betting at some point in the course of its development. Even though these bans have proved to be unsuccessful in the long run, they made their position clear at the time; thus, we cannot afford to close our eyes to the harm that sports betting is capable of causing.

Sports betting involves placing your hard-earned cash on the line, and the risk of losing your wager is the leading and most obvious risk of this art. Yes, some experienced, grizzled gamblers will tell you that skill, and your ability to analyze matches, will help you win, but this is gambling remember. The outcome of any game can favor either side. There are countless instances when match underdogs have surprised many gamblers. Who knew that Leicester City F.C. would be crowned the champions of the 2015/2016 Premier League season in the UK? In 2015, Japan defied all the odds to beat South Africa during the Rugby World Cup tournament, despite having failed to win a single match at any world cup since 1991. Before the game, one would bet their life on South Africa, but is there something like a “safe bet” in gambling? Of course, some bets tend to be safer than others, but no stake guarantees a win. If it were so, then betting shops would close down in a day.

In addition to losing money, there is another risk that comes with sports betting: the possibility of getting addicted. Even though there are people who successfully manage to avoid getting addicted to gambling, no one can claim to be completely immune. Even the most unlikely gamblers can fall into this trap, so be careful! We’re not discouraging you from betting; all we’re saying is that you should gamble responsibly, and remember to moderate your behavior.

I declare this thread open to all who wish to quit football betting and gambling at some point in my life I was a victim but today I have summed up the courage to come out of it. You too can do same.

Let's begin to watch football for the fun that it is not wasting our money or enriching gambling/betting company.

Join me as we count down.
