Sports betting doesn't always have to be so serious. Away from the passion of football, the throes of rugby and the animalistic tension of horse racing, novelty bets stand as an oasis of calm. Although our novelty betting hub is crammed with just as many odds, offers and everything else in between, the state of play is a lot less intense.
Because we want everyone to have a way to ante-up on a contest they enjoy, we cover a range of outlandish, odd-ball and obscure events in our TV and novelty betting pages. Naturally, if you want to take these contests seriously, you can. However, our mission is to make things as entertaining as possible and novelty bets allow us to offer odds on things that might not be as intense as the final of a major sporting event.
