Published on: Jan 13, 2021

America has produced some of the world’s top sports stars. From football to tennis, swimming to track and field, the stars from the USA shine brightly in their leagues and in big competitions. They are also the people who make bettors money, often defying odds and achieving things many of us can only dream of. Here we take a look at some of the shining stars in the world of sports.

LeBron James

Still going strong, still winning, still a bettor’s favorite both at the bookies and on popular betting sites such as USLB. James is one of the greatest players in the world of basketball and is frequently put into the same category as the greatest of all time: Michael Jordan. It is his consistency and work ethic that sets him apart from his fellow players, and also what makes him a good player to place a wager on. With an average of 26 points a game for a decade there is little to risk when it comes to backing this man’s excellence.

Serena Williams

Without doubt the greatest player in the history of tennis, Serena Williams has graced the courts of the world, and the betting slips of those who follow tennis, for longer than many of us can remember. It seems that as long as tennis has been a sport, Serena Williams has been its greatest star. With a massive 23 grand slam titles to her name she has often been the source of big wins for bettors. There is nothing that she can not do and she is an inspiration to many young sports fans and tennis players.

Micheal Phelps

Unforgettable moments and unforgettable wins are what we all associate with one of the USA’s brightest stars, Michael Phelps. There were many who bet on the ‘Bullet from Baltimore’ and were delighted with his times and results. Following the Rio Olympics Phelps was the most decorated Olympian of all time with 28 medals to his name, 23 of which were gold.

Simone Biles

At only 22 years of age, Simone Biles is one of America’s most talented sports stars. Her short career has seen her and those who place wagers on her rake in the winnings! It will be exciting to see where her career takes her and her followers in the future. She is certainly one to keep an eye on when it comes to placing bets.

Tiger Woods

Widely regarded as one the greatest golfers of all time, Woods has not only achieved a lot in the sport, but also for it. He has raised the profile of the sport around the world and is an iconic figure of the game. He offers sure bets when it comes to major tournaments and many bettors have enjoyed big wins on the back of his results. He is one of only four golfers to have been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
