Online Sportsbooks Remain the ‘Best Bet’ for US Players
Earlier in May of this year, the US Supreme Court opened the door to legal sports betting in the United States on a state by state basis. While this decision has completely energized the entire sports betting industry, you still have to ask yourself what does it really mean for you as a US sports bettor?
The offshore sportsbooks that have been operating in legal municipalities for quite some time already have the huge edge over any new sportsbooks that may pop up in states that do decide to make sports betting legal within their individual borders. With the tremendous strides in Internet technology over the past 15 years or so, the offshore sportsbooks have made the deep investments into perfecting their online sports betting software as well as their overall operating systems.
It has never been easier or safer to place a sport bet online with any of the offshore sportsbooks that currently handle the lion’s share of sports betting in the United States and around the globe. The best online books in the game have already faced stiffer competition from local bookies running and managing their own independent sportsbook. These top-rated books have found innovative ways to attract sports bettors to their websites that include generous bonus offers as well as promotional incentives that are designed to extend your betting bankroll.
Cash back offers on your overall betting activity on their sites in the form of free bets are common throughout the online sportsbook industry. There are regular promotional offers that include a lower commission on the bets you place (reduced juice) as well as customer loyalty programs that offer additional perks for the avid sports bettor.
Free cash back is great, but today’s sophisticated sports bettor turns to the offshore books for their high level of expertise. Most customer service teams are comprised of representatives that come from a sports betting background. They know the ins and outs of the sports betting game and they are available on a round-the-clock basis to help you manage your online sports betting account. Most offshore books offer email, online chat and a two-way messenger service as alternative means of working with their customer service department.
One of the biggest reasons why online bookies are so popular with US players is the sheer amount of betting options on their board at any given time. While the NFL and college football still attract the biggest handle for sports betting, diversity is the spice of life for today’s avid sports bettor.
If you are the type of bettor looking for action 12 months a year, you can always find something of interest to bet on at any online book you work with. One of the fastest growing segments of the sports betting industry is live in-game wagering as the action unfolds. Nothing is more exciting than betting on a game after it has gotten underway. The top offshore sportsbooks taking action online have you covered with a compete set of daily live in-game betting lines for a wide array of sporting events.
Another fast growing segment of the sports betting industry is continual betting options for props, or proposition bets. These are available on a game by game basis for every major sport. Normally released the day of the game, you can always find something interesting to bet on to add even more excitement to the action on the field, court or ice. Prop bet odds also offer some of the best value in sports betting if you know where and how to look.
Changes are undoubtedly coming to sports betting in the US over the coming months and years. However, the best option for US players is still going to be the online books that have spent the last 15 years or so setting the standard for excellence in the industry
