Sportsbooks – Finding a Great One
There is never an offseason for online sportsbooks and there is certainly never an offseason for gamblers. The thick of the season is upon us and there has never been a better time than now to choose a top tier bookmaker. Choosing a sportsbook may seem like an easy decision but the best advice is to investigate, read a review or two and know what you are getting into before taking the plunge.
A sportsbook is like a bank. You deposit money into your account and you use that money to make wagers. You can let the money ride and continue to play or you can withdraw the money at any time. You can have two, three, four, or 20 sportsbooks. The rule of thumb for serious gamblers is to have two or three bookies, why is this? Simple, you don’t shop at just one grocery store, you go where the deals are one week and you go where the better deals are the next week. You shop at one store for vegetables and another for shampoo. You are faithful to all of your favorite stores but maybe not

The online bookies are a dime a dozen and sorting them out can be daunting. There are great ones and there are some bad ones and then there are some downright scams. Find a great review site, read the reviews and testimonials. Then qualify yourself. What kind of player are you, how much do you like to spend per game and what kind of wager types do you usually bet? What about player bonuses, do you like them, are you looking for a good one? Reviews will help you find out exactly what you need to know about the not so good online books and the ones that come with a superb reputation.
If you already have a great bookie, that’s great, you should stick with them Great bookies are not always easy to come by. If you are looking to broaden your portfolio then you should keep a few things in mind. Look for a betting service that has a standup reputation for quick and hassle free payouts, look for one that wants and caters to American players. Don’t settle on these two issues, they will be important to you. Many bookies don’t like dealing with American players and they may or may not offer a toll free hotline
There are many great bookies that support you, answer your questions and explain all of the rules. It is very important that you understand the house rules for making a withdrawal-what do you need to have on file, what hoops do you have to run through?
Find a book that has a great reputation for honest and fair, market-value, lines and odds. This is exactly why you should absolutely have more than one bookie. Back yourself up and always keep a sharp eye out for better lines and odds. This is a race not a marathon.
