View Full Version : Sportsbook question>>>

I'm looking to add another sportsbook to my arsenal, so I thought I would poll the good people at Bettors Chat.

I currently have Pinnacle which I love. I am looking for these requirements in a book:

1. Posts overnight lines. I won't even consider a book that waits until late morning or noon.

2. Must take Western Union for deposits.

3. Must have the ability to buy points ONLINE.

4. Must have AT LEAST dime lines for baseball.

This is where you guys can really help:

5. Fast and trustworthy payouts

6. Friendly, competent and easy to understand phone opertaors.

7. Good software program for online wagering.

8. No bad history of non-payments; been in business a while.

You probably noticed I didn't mention bonuses. I am not as concerned with extravagent bonuses if I can get all of the above.

Pinnacle is all of the above but as I mentioned, I already have them and wouldn't mind adding another out for bases.

Thanks for your help!

My personal fav is OLY. Lines are sharper at pinnacle which is one of my books but you get a bigger aray of betting choices at OLY including ML parleys. Good luck on what ever you choose.:cool:

Sorry to be off topic, but I saw your post on the lines being sharper at OLY. I have had some success with a system I have tried out the past 3 weeks:

Whenever Oly has the BEST line on the board compared to other books, go AGAINST that side.

Playing $100/game over the past 3 weeks of any game that was drastic has put me up $650.

Just thought I would pass this along as something to think about

Bodog payouts are fast as heck and never any worries. Many tell me it is a bushleague book, however, it treats me well, you get just about all you need. Only drawback is that it post lines a little later, and it favors the underdog. Easy to join, no Netteller or anything, links encrypted to your checking acct. My 2 cents....Best of luck!

To me only three things matter

1) Payouts

2) Payouts

3) Payouts

We have to remember we are sending our money overseas and if the sportsbooks don't want to pay, they don't have to. I wouldn't get so caught up with lines. I'd make sure the sportsbook isn't blacklisted.

By far the easiest to fund and reload on...website is always up and fast. My only complaint with them is limited props.

thanks for the input.

question: does Bodog allow W/U? I heard no but that may have changed.


You got to shop the lines, bro. I know a lot of books that pay but not all have good lines, IMO.
