Bet On Politics

Politics betting isn’t usually a regular option on the markets as it solely focuses on big events. In the United States, that typically revolves around the Presidential Election, you can check out the 2016 election odds to get a better picture. Most sportsbooks will only offer odds on who will become the next President of the United States of America, but there are the odd shop that will give you a few more options to choose from. 

Betting on Entertainment

Betting on entertainment has grown in popularity thanks to the rise of reality shows. Any time there is a competition for prizes, stardom or love, you’ll often find odds on it. That includes shows like Survivor, Dancing with the Stars, The Bachelor/Bachelorette and many more. If you watch the shows closely enough, you can gauge who is a serious contender and who really doesn’t have much of a chance, which could give you an edge.

Aside from that, you can always find odds on the major awards shows too. When it’s that time of the year for the Oscars and Grammy’s to roll up, some sportsbooks offer odds on who will win Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Picture.
