5 Good Reasons to Bet The Games at Online Sportsbooks
Sports betting is starting to heat back up with the summer months. Weekly betting events for NASCAR, the PGA Tour and international soccer are all available right now. By the time August 1 rolls around, live betting on MLB, NBA and NHL games should be back on the board.
Now is the time to find an online sportsbook or two for all of your gambling needs based on the following five main benefits.
- Generous Bonus Offers
Just about every online sports bookies offers a very generous welcome bonus for new players. The bonus is normally tied to an initial deposit into your online betting account. For example, if there is a 100% matching bonus up to $100, you can double your betting bankroll to $200 by maxing out the offer.
More and more online books have extended their bonus program to include every deposit made. They have also lowered the wagering requirement (rollovers) to collect your free cash or betting credit.
- Cash Back Gamblers Insurance
Even when you lose you win at certain online books. Some will offer up 10 percent back on any net loss over a certain time frame. For example, if you posted a net loss of $500 over the past month, you would receive a $50 credit on the first day of the new month.
- Expanded Betting Board
The biggest advantage to betting sports at online books is overall variety. They will go out of their way to find new and exciting ways to bet on sports and sporting events. From parlay boosters on three-team plays to betting player props for actual games, online books will offer an expanded board for every major sports league as well as secondary betting sports.
The online books have way more leeway to post betting odds for anything of interest. This includes esports, sims games, the world of entertainment and politics. There are always a number of different ways to add more excitement to the action on the field court or ice.
Another big advantage online books bring to the table is live in-game betting. This lets you bet on the sports you love after the games have gotten underway. Betting lines for NFL games are adjusted during each commercial break. You can also bet on “what happens next” in terms of a team’s next possession.
Through the use of an advanced mobile betting platform, all you need to take advantage of this expanded menu of betting options is a handheld device with internet access.
- Reduced Juice Opportunities
One of the best ways to boost your bankroll over the course of the year is to pay less commission or juice. Online books will reduce the juice for certain pointspreads and total lines. For example, you can get the Green Bay Packers plus three points at +105 over the Minnesota Vikings (-125) in Week 1 of the upcoming NFL regular season.
Certain online books will offer dime lines and even nickel lines for MLB games. Over the course of the season, saving money on any losses with a lower commission can add up to quite a bit of savings overall.
- Racebook and Live Casino
Today’s modern online sportsbook is actually a full-service online gambling site. Along with betting tonight’s big matchup, you can bet the daily card at your favorite horse racing track through the site’s expanded racebook. You could also try your luck at slots or play a couple of hands of live-dealer Blackjack in the online casino.
