Football betting has been around for quite some time and it is very hard to trace the root and origin of it. Initially only local bookmakers were involved in football betting; traditionally, the first football betting took place in a pub where a local bookie took the benefit of the wager. In the 1960's, the US Government introduced legislation in order to control football betting – making it illegal in all states except Nevada.
Another dark side of football betting was the way these bookies treated gamblers. The bookies used all possible means to recover the money from the gamblers, causing the inevitable downfall of local independent bookmakers.
Ever since Internet came into existence in 1990's, it has changed the whole profession and like other industries, football betting moulded into a new shape which gave birth to Online Football Betting. Technology has made it far easier to bet on any football game without the need for a local bookie. Many online football betting sites came into play, offering many member services. Betting increased considerably when a handicap system of point spreads was developed.
