Pros and Cons of Sportsbook Review Sites

The busy gambling season has finally arrived. There isn’t a better time than now to earn a great deal of money betting on sports and we can all thank football for the opportunity. To follow, we will talk about the Pros and Cons of Sportsbook Review sites.

Both the NFL and NCAA have an appeal to bettors that most of the other sports simply can’t match. There is something about football, possibly it’s the fact that only one game is played per team, per week, or possibly it’s the non-stop action that goes on over the course of a game.



Whatever the appeal is, we know there is a massive amount of love for betting this sport and the pursuit of winning money. The online sportsbooks want your business and you certainly want the best you can get. Finding value for your hard-earned dollar is important but the question remains, can you trust the sportsbook review sites? Are they worth the time?

The Pros—

There is nothing worse than having an online sportsbook that doesn’t pay you, or one that has bad lines and odds, or one that doesn’t offer a great wagering menu.

Often, sports gamblers are busy people and they simply don’t have the time necessary to find the perfect online bookmaker. As a result, what do they do? They either take a wild guess as to who is trustworthy, or they read an online review.

There are many of them out there. There are a few good ones and a few bad ones.

Separating the good from the bad is not always an easy task, however, there are some clues as to what makes a review site worth it’s salt.

You must remember one very important factor; most articles that are written concerning the good or bad of any one website (including sportsbooks) are SEO driven, with Google results being the motivating factor. No matter what is written nowadays, it’s written with Google in mind.

An honest review will tell you about the sportsbook when they came into existence, where they are from, what their strengths are as a bookie, what their weaknesses are. They will tell you about their deposit options, their payout history, their reputation for great lines and odds or lack thereof.

What’s not to love about first-hand experience from bettors who have used the sportsbook and know about them? You should, by all means, listen to folks who have been there and done that. This is a great way of finding a fantastic online bookie.

The Cons—

Often bookie will write their own review. This can be extremely biased, obviously, they want your business and they would never paint themselves in a bad light. This rarely happens and when it does you can usually spot the culprit as they mention themselves three or four times per paragraph!

At the end of the day, reading sportsbook review sites is a great idea. Not only does it help you find a great bookie that’s honest, but one that offers great features. You will be much further up the road by reading a review or two than trusting nobody and bouncing from bad bookie to bad bookie. Give the review sites a try, they are worth your time.
