Betting on sports games has been a long running tradition in many countries around the world. The combined excitement of a favourite sport, plus the possibility of winning money, is something that appeals to many people, for obvious reasons. The act of betting on sports can be traced back almost as long as sporting events themselves, with bets being made on gladiator fights in the ancient Roman coliseum, and even prior to that. Today, of course, bets are far more likely to be made on sports such as football and baseball.
