Sports betting online can be daunting when you first get into it. You have to do some due-diligence or you can end up getting ripped off by a less-than-reputable sportsbook. Luckily, there are sportsbook review websites that can help you find a good one.

But what are some of the qualities you want in a sportsbook? If you narrow it down to say three or four options, which one should you pick? We hope to help you answer that question.

Here are the most important factors when choosing a sportsbook.

Responsive Customer Service

Does the site plainly and clearly have a phone number listed? Good. This means you can get a real human on the phone that can help you. Does the site have a live chat box? This is a great sign too. Many of the top rated sportsbooks have 24/7 customer service.

Payout & Withdrawal Options

Does the sportsbook you are looking at offer 3 or 4 solid payment methods? If not, they should. Having more than one way to deposit and receive your money is important in the online sportsbook world. Having only one method of payment really bottlenecks your ability to pay and get paid.

Lines and Odds

Do you find yourself betting against the public opinion on a game more than not? Then you should check to see how square a sportsbooks' lines are. If you consider yourself a sharp player you should look to take advantage of a sportsbook that typically offers square lines.

Website Usability

Does the website look nice? Does it feel like you can navigate pretty easily? This is a key point. There is nothing worse than when you are trying to throw down on a game right before it starts but you cannot find it through all the clutter.


These key points above will help you decide which book is best for you. It is always a good idea to have more than one sportsbook so that you can pick the best line available.
