This year’s Summer Olympics opens on Aug. 5, but online sportsbooks already have outright bets for football, a popular sport in Brazil. Bitcoin sports betting sites like BetBaller pegged the host country to win the men’s football, with Argentina coming in at second. Germany and Portugal come complete the top four. Anonibet also sees Brazil to snatch the gold.
“The top of the list is Brazil. Its odds are set at 1.9 for Anonibet, while BetBaller has a more profitable 2.87. As the host country and one of the world’s best football teams, they will be fighting with a home field advantage. This means that hordes of people will expect them to perform well and even reach the top.”

The US election is not happening until November, but bets for the two candidates continue to flood online sportsbooks. Donald Trump, whose odds are higher than Hillary Clinton’s, surprisingly receive higher wagers. This trend has already forced sportsbooks to decrease Trump’s odds. If he wins, this would spell trouble for the sportsbooks.
“A Trump win would also be a disastrous for sportsbooks. This is because all the bets being paid out would be quite expensive. With the odds against Trump, it may result in a situation like Leicester’s, where the sportsbook has to pay out enormous amounts to the winners.”
SportsBet.io recently marked its first month in the Bitcoin gambling industry and it already made impressive records. Launched for the UEFA Euro 2016 games, the official sports betting partner of BitCasino.io promises to unveil better services, more promos, and wider coverage.
“The main proof of SportsBet’s success is the amount of bets and money it has processed. The site has already paid out 864,000 mBTC to players. This is worth roughly around €509,800. The biggest individual win from a single bet was for 8,650 mBTC, on a wager on an MLB match against Kansas City Royals v Houston Astros.”
Gambling of any kind comes with risks; that is why Bitcoin bettors must also take extra steps to ensure their security and their funds’ safety. This includes choosing the right Bitcoin casino or betting site, securing player accounts, and becoming more responsible.
“Other common precautions—both for Bitcoin and traditional gambling—include using strong and unique passwords for every account. If a particular platform were to be hacked, users do not want their account info to be used across other platform. Using the same password for multiple platforms is one of the worst security practices today. Be responsible and come up with unique strings of text for passwords.”
