Sportsbook Reviews

Choose a new sportsbook that offers you the features you want.  New sportsbook sites are added all the time. Our sportsbook reviews are designed to give you all the information you need on the best (and worst) sportsbook sites on the internet. If you’re looking for advice before making a decision on whether or not to join a new sportsbook, we’re here to help.

Our sportsbook reviews will give you all the info you need on what each company has to offer. From the registration process, to any promotion codes you may need to qualify for free bets when signing up, to payment methods, withdrawal times and more, we’ve got you covered.

We give each sportsbook a star rating – as do our readers – giving you a good idea of just how good they really are.

We’ll tell you about their customer service, the range of sports they offer, which sportsbooks have live streaming, plus if you’re considering signing up with one or more new betting sites, we’ll give you the lowdown on the newest sportsbook that has been licensed to operate in the United States.

Sportsbook Site Reviews

We have a bunch of sportsbook reviews here at ExpertPicks.com. Our sportsbook reviews provide accurate, up to date information about licensed sportsbooks in the United States, designed to give you an impartial look at what is both good and bad about each particular sportsbook.

Our readers are able to give their opinion on a sportsbook as well and are asked to rate sportsbooks from 1-5 (five being the strongest score).

Our reviews cover every possible angle. We’ll tell you about any new betting sites that have recently been launched, and we’ve got reviews of all the top US sportsbook sites (and we’ll tell you if they really are as good as other comparison websites make out!).

We split our sportsbook reviews into a number of categories. If you’re looking to join as a new customer, we’ll tell you about any free bets that are available. We’ll tell you about their odds and markets, the sports they cover (as well as the range and depth of betting markets available for each particular sport), how good their live betting coverage is, and whether they have live streaming. We’ll also tell you about any sportsbook special offers that are available, in addition to covering customer service, any mobile apps, payment options and more!

Our Verdict On Each Betting Site

As noted, we provide star ratings for each sportsbook review. Our sportsbook ratings are based on our own experiences with each particular company.

Our team of experts only publish their sportsbook reviews after going through each website with a fine tooth comb – exploring the various markets available, completing the sign-up process, placing real money bets, withdrawing any winnings, and contacting customer support – before reviewing them. We’ll then compile our review and tell you about the pros and cons of each betting site.

If they’re good, we’ll tell you they’re good. If they’re not, we’ll tell you why they are not, and that will be reflected in our overall rating.

How To Find A Reliable Sportsbook

There are many factors to consider when it comes to finding a good sportsbook who can offer everything you want, and it isn’t always about the sports on offer, or how good the odds are at one sportsbook compared to another. We only cover legal gambling and recommend bookmakers who are fully regulated.

Bookmaker Website Reviews

The website itself is a key factor for many when trying to find a reliable sportsbook. It’s great for betting sites to offer odds on every sport and every market you can think of, but if those markets are hidden away, then why would you want to join them?

As well as reviewing sports, odds and markets, our team will also tell you about the website itself for each sportsbook. Is a sportsbook website quick loading? Are markets easy to find? Is it easy to contact customer support? How easy is it to provide any required promo codes in order to claim a bonus?

We’ll talk you through the website experience with each sportsbook and tell you about the best betting sites when it comes to navigating the various sections, finding the markets, and placing your wager – not just for sport but also for other products.

Mobile Betting Sites

The best betting sites usually come complete with a complete mobile betting experience, either as a mobile betting site, or with dedicated apps for iOS, Android and/or Windows.

Our reviews come complete with full information about mobile betting, covering all angles. We’ll also tell you about mobile live streaming and which bookmakers allow you to bet in-play on the move, as well as giving you a ‘heads up’ when any exclusive mobile bookie specials are available as from time to time, sportsbooks will launch a promotion or special offer exclusively for bets placed on your smartphone.

Sportsbook Customer Service

If you’re betting with real money, it seems pretty obvious that you should be able to receive a swift response to any question you may have regarding bets. However, not all betting sites offer around the clock support.

The best betting sites come with excellent customer support, and we’ll tell you about the sportsbooks offering great customer service via Live Chat, as well as email and telephone. We’ll also tell you which sportsbooks offer support via social media, with Twitter becoming a more popular way for customers to be able to contact a bookmaker with a query.

Bookmaker Odds & Markets

The range of betting markets is important to many when it comes to choosing which sportsbook to bet with, as are the odds on offer.

Good odds are important when it comes to online betting, and the best betting sites are often ones which offer the highest possible odds. Some people may be of the impression that small margins don’t matter, but over time, getting the best odds can make a real difference.

Our guides to betting odds and sportsbooks will help you to understand where you can get the best odds. We’ll also tell you if a sportsbook is particularly strong on certain sports, and if they are weaker on other sports – this is partly why it is always worth having several betting accounts. A good sportsbook could be strong on football but weak on baseball, for example.

Some new sportsbook sites covering minor sports can also help to give you an edge when it comes to trying to find that extra little bit of value as well.

Live Betting Reviews

Live betting is big business these days, with many punters placing bets as a particular sporting event takes place. If you’re betting on football, baseball, basketball or hockey, chances are you’re aware of the ‘in-play’ betting options available with some betting sites.

bet365, for example, prides itself on its live in-play betting service, with a huge range of sports and markets available to bet on as a matchup or race is taking place. As a general rule, the time between the action happening and the information being relayed to the customer is less than two seconds, giving you a real sense that you’re betting live.

We’ll tell you about all the betting sites offering live betting, as well as telling you about new betting sites who are starting to offer live in-play markets.

We’ve also got full information on which bookmakers are offering Cash Out.

Cash Out is massively popular, but if you’re unfamiliar with the term, basically it means giving you to opportunity to get money back on your wager before the event you are betting on has ended.

The amount of money you get back is determined at the time of cashing out, and depends on how likely the bet is to win at that particular time. It could be for more than your initial stake. It could be for less.
If your bet looks unlikely to win, it may be that you decide cashing out is a way to limit your loss on that occasion.

Live Streaming Reviews

A number of sportsbooks offer access to live streaming sport these days, and the days of having to rely on a subscription service to watch live sport are long gone.

Many of the best sportsbook sites now offer live streaming, giving you the opportunity to watch and bet on a wide range of sports from anywhere you like, via your PC, smartphone or tablet, and the picture quality these days is excellent.

Our sportsbook reviews will tell you which betting sites offer live streaming and which sports you can both watch and bet on. We’ll also tell you which new betting sites offer live streams via their websites and apps.

As a general rule, live streaming on betting sites comes free of charge, however you may find some restrictions based on where you are in the world (betting sites tend to use your IP address to present the events available to you, and television rights mean certain events are not broadcast in certain countries), but it's safe to say that you'll have access to a massive choice of live streaming sports every day!

Sportsbook Reviews FAQs

What is a sportsbook?

A sportsbook is an organisation or person that accepts and pays off bets on sporting and other events at agreed-upon odds.

How do betting odds work?

Betting odds represent the likelihood of an event happening. The odds enable you to work out how much money you will win if your bet wins. Less likely events tend to have higher odds and offer larger financial reward, while more likely events have a lower risk attached and therefore a lower reward. As an example, with odds of +400, for every $1 you bet, you will win $4. There is a 20% chance of this happening.

How many online sportsbooks are there in the USA?

The number of US sportsbooks is increasing regularly as more and more States legalize online sports betting and more and more sportsbooks receive licenses. Check our 'States' page on this site to find out which sportsbooks are legal in your area.
