Football betting and fantasy football: be great at both
This latest concoction by Bet365 and Fantasy Football Scout is one of many growing trends combining sports betting with fantasy sports. The two are cousins in the sports world and can cross over in many aspects.
Sports betting is older and mainly involves picking between teams while fantasy deals with the players. However, the continued evolution of both activities has led to many crossovers.
Both involve heavy referrals to statistics and similar metrics and both involve the wagering and winning of cash. In some cases, sports betting has become gamified as well with many books offering handicapping contests similar to DFS sites offering seasonal contests.
Betting sites like Bet365 are getting into the fantasy sports arena acknowledging that many fantasy players are also sporting bettors and vice-versa.
The skills involved in sports betting and playing fantasy still differ and there is still some small degree of luck that determines the outcome. But skill is the ultimate determining factor. Bettors and fantasy players determine their fate by preparing and adjusting as the seasons go on.
Players from either discipline are deeply embedded in football or whatever sport it is that transitioning to the other shouldn't be as steep as learning a curve. Sports bettors may adjust more in moving to fantasy due to the additional machinations of the leagues.
But for fantasy players, dipping their toes in sports betting should be easier. The amount of research and football-watching they do on a regular basis lends itself to the prep of sports betting research.
Forward-thinking sites like Bet365 know this and are extending a hand towards fantasy players who have yet to get into sports betting.
It behooves players of both disciplines to be familiar enough with either side as the continued legalization of online betting will lead to more open markets.
