Zambian bettors like sports and are never afraid of risking their money to exhibit their passion for the sport. While the number of sporting events covered by Zambian betting sites can be enormous, a few sports usually top the betting charts. Here are some standout favorites among Zambian sports bettors:
Football is the most prominent sport in Zambian. In 2012, Chipolopolo, the national football team of Zambia, won the Africa Cup of Nations, an indication that the sport is prevalent in the country, with the majority of Zambians wagering on it. In football, bettors get all the major common markets like Handicaps, Points Spread, Over/Under, and Outright. At the same time, football offers many exclusive markets, including the Highest Goal Scorer, First to Score, and many more.
When it comes to famous tournaments, there are many high-voltage tournaments for Zambians to bet on. For example, while the English Premier League may be England's domestic league, it enjoys a massive following in Zambia, just as in other parts of the world.
Football Teams like Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester City enjoy a massive fanbase in Zambia thanks to their mesmerizing performances. Consequently, the league has become a prime target for Zambian punters.
Zambians are also avid basketball punters. While the sport is very near and dear to Americans, it is played worldwide, offering enormous opportunities for the best basketball bookmakers in Zambia to take bets.
In addition, tournaments like Basketball World Cup and National Basketball Association (NBA) are excellent sources of entertainment for punters and viewers in the country. Examples of markets exclusive to basketball include NBA totals, Alternate Points Spread, and Game Props.
Ice hockey betting does not enjoy as much traction as football or basketball. However, this doesn't mean it is not a great sport for betting in Zambia. On top of the common markets already discussed, hockey offers Puck Line, Props, and many more in various tournaments, including KHL and NHL.
