How to Choose The Best Online Sportsbook
by Website Staff

If you are new to online sports betting or looking for a reliable offshore sportsbook you have come to the right place. Online sports betting and casino gambling have increased at an exponential rate since the birth of the internet. There are many unscrupulous online sportsbook sites and virtual gambling operators whose only business is swindling money from the recreational sports bettor but thankfully there are also plenty of legitimate online sportsbook wagering sites from which to choose.

To pick an online sportsbook that will fit you best you need to evaluate your betting history to determine what sports or bet types you wager on the most. If you have not bet on sports before you will most likely wager on sports you enjoy watching.

The most important question to ask before deciding to deposit money at an online sportsbook is do they pay. You can start your research by visiting our online sportsbook directory which has a list of reputable sportsbooks.

In addition, you should utilize the many sports betting forums that have appeared with advent of online sports betting. Do not make the mistake in thinking that every sportsbook who advertises at an online sports gambling discussion group or sportsbook forum is legitimate. Many so called watchdog websites are nothing more than internet portals whose owners have not opened an account, placed a wager and successfully completed a withdrawal from the advertisers on their sites. You are better off seeking the opinions of the forum posters by either posting questions or using the forums search feature to investigate sportsbooks that interest you.

At this point you should make a list of online sportsbooks that focus on sports leagues you like to bet or wagering options that you enjoy such as prop bets, alternate lines or live betting.

The next step is to start eliminating online sportsbooks under consideration that do not offer either reduced juice, opinionated lines or substantial sign up and reload bonuses. If you accept a bonus the sportsbook will require you to complete a rollover, betting the amount of your deposit several times before withdrawing any winnings. Beware of any online sportsbook that offers unusually large sign up bonuses with small or no rollover requirements they may be scams and most likely will not be in business for long.

Most online sportsbooks regularly offer a cash bonus to attract new business. The online sportsbooks that offer larger than normal sign up and reload bonuses are targeting recreational bettors and they typically are not interested in acquiring professional gamblers as customers. There are many quality online sportsbooks who have sign up and reload bonuses of 50% or more.

It is highly recommended that you have at least three fully funded online sportsbook accounts even if you only wager on one or two sports. It is very difficult to be a profitable sports bettor without the ability to shop for the best line.

With a little forethought and research, you can ensure your funds are safe, increase your bankroll by taking advantage of promotional bonuses and win more on every wager by utilizing reduced juice sportsbooks.
