I’m not going to reinvent the wheel, here’s a good explanation:
If you live in the states and are not able to bet at a local sportsbook, you have limited options. You need more than one sportsbook, that’s a must.
The best offshore sportsbooks for USA-based players are Bovada, BookMaker, 5Dimes and Heritage Sports. I use BookMaker and Bovada exclusively for my live (in-game) betting. For those outside the states, you have many more options, just make sure it’s a reputable, highly-rated book (you can check out their ratings at www.sportsbookreview.com).
