Up until now the country’s pastime has been somewhat overshadowed in the comings and going of sports gambling and on gambling sites by other professional sports playoffs. But within the next month baseball will go from the mid-level of sports gambling interest all the way to the number one spot.
Gambling fans know the routine. Baseball season kicks off in March, but no one and no gambling site really makes it a priority until the NHL and NBA seasons finish up their playoffs and baseball can once again take center stage in the sports gambling landscape. By the end of June almost every gambling site on the Internet will feature baseball prominently as its headline sport. It’s the simple changing of the sports gambling guard and it’s as natural as the changing of the seasons for seasoned gambling site fans. Fortunately for true baseball gambling fans the time for the switch is fast approaching and with the NBA Finals in full swing and the Stanley Cup already handed out, the time for baseball to rise back to the top of the gambling sites’ priory lists is fast approaching.
The country’s pastime has taken a bit of a beating in the popularity polls of late due to the fact that there are so many other sports now competing for gambling fans’ attention such as mixed martial arts fighting, the rise of soccer and even the WNBA -which competes directly for calendar space. As such there are some gambling pundits that think that baseball may be in decline and perhaps even go the way of the dodo, or slowly perish like boxing gambling appears to be doing. And that may be a legitimate concern.
But the one saving grace for baseball gambling is that it is still highly regarded on sports gambling sites. And even though there are rumors of baseball gambling’s decline it still seems as popular as ever in many circles and ticket sales and TV ratings would seem to confirm that baseball gambling is as good as it ever was.
