Sports betting is a form of gambling where users predict sports results and place a wager on the outcome through online and offline platforms.

This helps end users witness and participate in betting activities in real-time through their Internet based or other electronic devices. The hike in the penetration rate of Internet-based devices, wagering through online and offline modes of payment, and relaxation of laws have boosted the sports betting market across the globe.
In this market report, TMR estimates that the offline platform is expected to remain prominent till the end of 2027, though the online platform is found to be attractive among users in the sports betting market.
