The infographic shows such data as popular types of bets being placed, including prop bets, parlays, straight wagers, future wagers and head-to-head bets, totalizators and ‘if bets’. It also shows demographic intel on the most common punters and bettors. Favourite sports categories to wager on is another category in the infographic.
