The sporting calendar is slowly but surely filling up again and there is now plenty of action for punters to watch and bet on.
In years gone by, bettors would venture into their local betting shop in order to watch various races and sporting events, but with such a diverse range now available to view through online betting sites, they can bet and watch all in one place either on the sofa or on the go.
The best thing about live streaming sports through online bookmakers is that you often don’t even need to bet in order to watch. With the exception of racing, which can require a qualifying bet, you may view events within football, tennis, darts, Esports, basketball, snooker, and more as long as you are logged in with a positive balance or have placed a bet in the last 24 hours.
Football live streaming
Not only is football the biggest and most popular sports in the world, but it is also among the most prominent category on UK betting sites both in terms of available bets and the live streaming catalogue.
You won’t be able to watch the Premier League through online bookies, but pretty much all of the other top leagues in Europe such as Serie A, La Liga, and Bundesliga will all be available.
On top of that, you will be able to enjoy action from more obscure competitions. Bet365 offer one of the best selections of football live streaming, and you can view the upcoming schedule on their betting site.
Racing live streaming
Horse racing and greyhound streaming is even more common on online betting sites than live football.
With racing taking place almost all day every day across Australia, the UK, USA, and other territories in all corners of the globe, there is plenty to watch and bet on.
Even some of the newer UK betting sites have secured rights to show races, but you may need to place a small wager in order to view each race. William Hill, however, offer many races for free.
If you are a horse racing punter, you should only really be wagering through betting sites with racing live streaming unless you have Racing TV or Sky Sports Racing.
You can see ratings and reviews of online sportsbooks and check which ones have streaming capabilities through betting comparison websites such as MyBettingsites.com.
Tennis live streaming
The depth of tennis competitions all over the world allows for a huge number of pre-match and in-play tennis betting opportunities.
While the Grand Slam tournaments might garner the most attention, there are smaller events taking place all-year-round and often the only way to watch them is through online betting sites.
Live betting is very popular in tennis as it is such a dynamic game, and by watching the matches on betting sites you can judge the way in which they are going and place bets on the same page.
Unibet and Betfair both have great tennis live streaming options.
