Fantasy Football

Has online betting changed the way you watch football?

I have been a huge fan of football my entire life. I have never really gambled on football, but lately I have been playing fantasy football and other games such as Draft Kings and Fan Duel.  It changed the way I watched football. I start watching my team play and when they are not winning (usually) it is okay because I begin to watch the players on other teams and start to cheer them on.

Fantasy Football has changed the way you look at football but recently the United States started letting fans bet on football games. You have always been able to pick individual players, but now if you want to bet the Boston Red Sox to win the World Series, the Dallas Cowboys to win the Super Bowl or the Los Angeles Lakers to win the NBA Championship or any other type of bet, you can make that online wager very easily from your own computer. That is pretty sweet to me.

Online wagering can be done easily from your own home. While the Bills are not likely to win the Super Bowl any time soon, there are so many things you can bet online. You can pick who will have the first pick in the NFL Draft, or who will finish the first in each division.  Football has become fun when you have money riding on it.  I think watching football and rooting for teams or players can be so much fun. I notice rooting for players on the Jets and even players on teams I hate such as the Jets.  Do you think it changed the way you looked at football?
