Hi, I want to make sports betting forum, but I don't know is phpBB good for it or no? Is there some plugins related to sports forums?

I think that you will need to be a bit more specific as to what it is that you are trying to do.

If you just want to talk about sports betting then phpBB is as good as any other bulletin board software.

Such as? Arguably all extensions (phpBB does not use plugins) can be sports related.

If you could explain what part of phpBB you want to be used. Will it just be a bulletin board attached to a sports site or do you want to use some of phpBB’s functions such as membership and logging in etc?

I suggest in the first place you have a look in the extensions forums and, if you don’t find anything that suits your purpose, you should make an extension request.

I've run a few sports forums, phpBB serves the purpose very well. Especially when you do things like live game-day threads and polls for voting. It's a lot of fun!

I need plugins like popular matches, betting odds, ratings and others.

phpBB doesn’t use plug ins it uses extensions and I’d suggest what you need may be already available in the extensions forums and, if you don’t find anything there, you can make an extension request.
