Enthusiasm of Americans for sporting activities is known to the world. Every sports aficionado knows it's difficult to stay aloof from betting on the winning team or player. It is something that comes naturally to sports buffs. It's impossible to sit down to watch a game of football with friends and not state even once about whom you think will win and ending up betting on it with friends. The betting on sports occur on a personal level like between friends as well as on a higher level i.e. the lawful betting with betting agents. Most of the times these predictions are made unconsciously like football predictions that happen when you are watching a game.

The reason for someone favoring a particular player or a side depends upon his personal preferences along with the knowledge that he possesses about the game. At times it's the instinct and at times it is a well thought, calculated and analyzed technique that the person uses. Calculations and analysis can be used by someone who knows the game very well. A person without knowledge cannot make predictions established upon analysis and calculations.When bettors favor a particular team or player to declare them a winner as per their predictions that is known as as sport handicapping. It is basically favoring a team or a player over the other.

Origin of sports handicapping dates back to the 17th century. In those days boys used to place their bets in caps that were held in hands and hence it got its name.Sport handicapping has emerged as a huge business these days. There are professionals present online who offer tips and suggestions to play bets. These experts are known as sports handicappers and they understand the sport in and out which gives them an edge over a common man who enjoys a match in his leisure time. These handicappers provide tips on betting for big leagues and then there are handicappers functioning on a lower level who guide people on college football betting predictions.

With the emergence of sport handicapping as a business and the wide reach of internet, there has been troubles with impostors posing as handicappers and fleeing away with the gambling money. If you place bets on the internet then it is advisable to carry a thorough check about the authenticity of the website and handicapper as well so as to avoid being a target to such frauds.Sport handicapping is prevalent in sports like NFL football, NHL hockey, horse racing, MLB Baseball, NBA along with college football and basketball games.
