What does it take to get listed in our “Best Sportsbooks List”?
The most important factor that we look for is a book reputation and years in business. We will only promote sportsbooks that have a long positive history in this industry. You will never see a newer book listed here as they haven’t proven themselves yet to our scrutiny. The sportsbook must be in good standing with both players and affiliates alike and this information is readily available in the various player/affiliate forums throughout the internet.
We look for book makers that have an effective Withdrawal and Deposit history. Offshore sportsbooks spend an enormous amount of time and money on providing their players with effective payment processors. It is not easy to move money from your pockets to the books and vice versa. We believe that the solid books have this process down to an art and therefore don’t require their players to wait and jump through hoops to get their funds.
Another important factor in sports betting is offering competitive lines since there is fierce completion among the offshore bookmakers for your business. There are many places that have varying lines so it is smart of have a couple of accounts at the top sportsbooks to find the most competitive line on any sporting event.
Customer service is key with us, we will not advertise a sportsbook that doesn’t offer 24/7 customer service either by online chat, email or phone. We believe if a sportsbook wants your business then they should be available to answer any question you may have any time of day or night.
Read the small print before accepting any bonuses offered by the sportsbooks, typically money is not free and there will always be strings attached to any bonuses. There will always be a roll over on any bonus make sure you find out what it is and if it’s acceptable to what you want to do. Typically amateur bettors who just bet for fun/entertainment should take the bonuses for a little extra bankroll. It is not suggested for players who are looking to bet as a sports investment.
Where to Bet Online for the 2015 NFL Season
For US bettors we prefer Bovada or GTbets Sportsbooks. They are managed by excellent teams that have years of industry experience. Their payouts are always timely and once you have established your account set up deposits are easy. Both of these sportsbooks offer live in game betting which adds a little excitement while the game is being played. Both also offer a poker room but we would suggest if you are playing poker, Bovada would be the room of choice. They both also have race books but for horse racing we would suggest 5 dimes as they have the most extensive race book.
