If you start betting on sports, which sport would be better to choose? Can you tell me, friends? Thank you.

Roller Derby
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Bet a sport you know and understand. Bet small to start. Learn the bets. Then you can expand.

Does Roller Derby still exist? I haven't seen it in 30 years.

My money is on Annis Jensen and the Bay City Bombers.

I know it exists locally, in some places. I don't know whether or not there is a nationally broadcasted league anymore. I'd probably watch roller derby if I watched TV at all, was flipping through the channels and happened upon it.

It does. The Bombers still compete, although it's on a smaller scale. There are several All-Woman leagues, and a few mixed leagues.
The Bay Area Bombers have several matches a year at Avi, or at least they were doing so a few years ago. The old arena in the Commercial Center occasionally hosts roller derby.
The big difference is almost everyone plays on a flat track rather than the old banked tracks. It's just easier to transport and set up.
Believe it or not, it's become more theatrical. Each skater tries to adopt a personality, ala pro wrestling.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

While I don't disagree with this. I think it really depends on what your goal is.
