Online Sportsbook Reviews

You want a place that will take your action that won’t leave you worried about getting paid…so do we.  That is why we put together a list of the top online sports books and reviewed each one.

It’s not easy to find a reliable place to take your action.  Local bookies tend to be shady and you never know for sure if you are going to get paid when you win. That is why the crew here at BoydsBets likes betting online.

A lot of sites out there will promote just about any book for any reason.  Instead of trying to rank hundreds of sites (when the majority are junk), we’ve weeded out the pretenders and made a comprehensive list of only the best sportsbooks around.

Below we have ranked our favorite places for sports betting and given you the reasons why they were chosen.  This way you can find the top book or books for your specific needs.

These rankings are constantly updated and we will add or remove books based on their performance throughout each year. (Click on the book’s name to be taken directly to their site or read each of our individual sportsbook reviews for full details on each.)

Sportsbooks are rated on a 1-100 scale and ranked from first to last.

Top Internet Betting Sites


5Dimes: 96/100

There’s simply no excuse to not have an account at 5Dimes. They won’t wow you with bonuses (which is the only thing keeping them from a perfect score), but they more than make up for it with wagering options and reduced juice on just about any major event you can think of. The amount of money you end up saving by taking advantage of their reduced juice is well worth the time it takes to set up an account and it’s not just us who thinks so. Predictem also has them voted as having the best odds. They also offer exceptional customer service and the fastest payouts in the industry! Read more in our full 5Dimes review.

GT Bets: 95/100

GT Bets is relatively new on the on sportsbook scene, but we’ve followed their growth and have been impressed with the multiple options they make available to their members. They’ve also built a strong reputation as a book that doesn’t miss a payout and will fix any issues you have on your account in a timely manner via their excellent customer service. A great thing about joining one of the big up-and-coming books is that they want your business – meaning bigger, better bonuses! Our GT Bets review has more details.

Bovada: 95/100

The “coolest place” to bet. This is a rock solid group that is well-managed and financially secure so you’ll never have a problem either with customer service or getting paid. They changed the industry with their easy deposit methods, but they do have low-limits on most games. If you are a smaller player, this book is the cream of the crop, especially when taking underdogs due to the large amount of “public” action that they take on favorites. Their motto is “never missed a payout” for a reason.  They never have.  Get the full scoop with our full review of Bovada sportsbook.

Bookmaker: 94/100

We use Bookmaker as the opener on our live odds page because they are the first sportsbook to post the lines. Having an account there lets you get your action in early before any lines shift.This place doesn’t mind professional action and offers high wagering limits. Ran by the original BetCris group, this book is a rock, both financially and with their customer service team. We strongly recommend opening an account with them, no matter what your betting limit is. Bookmaker also offers a 20% sportsbook bonus on all initial deposits and is the first book when it comes to posting the daily odds. If you like getting your action in early, you really need to make this book one of your options. Learn more in our comprehensive review of Bookmaker.

BetOnline: 93/100

BetOnline is the perfect choice for teaser bettors because of their reduced odds. Getting a few extra points off of your teasers throughout the season can make a world of difference in you bottom line when you cash out. They are also a book that offer college basketball totals on every single game, making an account there a must-have for anyone who bets NCAA hoops over unders. This book also gets their lines up early so that you can get in on the action before any significant line changes. They have been in business for over a decade and have a superb customer service record. Popular review site Bettors World has never received a complaint about them either. Interested?
