It can also provide a tangible means of connecting your own outcome with that of the game’s outcome.

Some will be more reputable than others. In addition to a plethora of these sites, you can also find websites that review the various online sports betting sites available to you.
Remember, as with any kind of gambling, the specific legalities of online betting may vary state to state. Be sure to research what your state allows and what it restricts when it comes to placing sports bets online.
