FIXED ODDS AT Bodog Sportsbook
Bodog Sportsbook offers good but mid-tier odds compared to top rated online bookies (but none of them, like Bet365 or PinnacleSports, accept US bettors). Prices for UK and European sports betting (eg football - soccer) are reliable and getting better. Worth a look.
NOTE: BookieLabRat.com tested 570 online bookmakers & 10 betting exchanges this quarter and failed 92% of them. Bodog Sports passed with a credible 85 out of a possible 100 points.
This review is not the formal analysis, just a high level summary of the key aspects we like and don't like about Bodog Sports.
ASIAN HANDICAP ODDS AT Bodog Sportsbook
Bodog Sports does offer Handicap bets with a "no draw" format (ie Asian Handicap Odds). Prices are reasonable, but not the ultimate in Handicap odds. Fair, reliable value.
OTHER BETS AT Bodog Sportsbook
Bodog Sports is a specialist US Sportsbook that we specifically recommend to American residents wanting to bet online. Bodog does however feature bets on all major international sports, and a myriad of props and betting options. The odds available at many UK and European bookies are often better than those at Bodog for the UK and European sports fixtures. Bodog Racebook offers betting on over 80 North American tracks, Bodog Live gives you the ability to bet on the outcome of every single play on many major sporting events. Check out Bodog Fight if you're into mixed martial arts fights.
Bodog's sports betting offers and props are easy to find on the jazzy Bodog web site. Good single click betting once you have an account registered. Lots of sports news (with attitude), the latest statistics and a wide range of bets means it's easy to be tempted at this online sportsbook. The odds format and betting style is very US focused on the US geotargeted site and very UK centric on the UK/Euro geotargeted site so may take a while to get used to for European or UK punters wanting to bet on US sports and vice versa. It's getting better all the time though.
Bodog offers new account holders a 10% first deposit match - with no maximum bonus set. You deposit it - they'll match it. Once your deposit is processed, your bonus is available for wagering within 30 minutes - and you can use it to bet in the sportsbook, play casino games or poker.
Different rollover (playthrough) bonus rules apply depending on whether you place sports bets or buy casino or poker chips with your bonus. E.G. both the deposit & bonus must be rolled over one time (1X) in the sportsbook before any withdrawal when using any deposit method except NETeller. (Neteller deposits require a x3 rollover). If use your bonus for Casino chips a x15 applies, and in the poker room you need to earn 3 Bodog Poker Points for every bonus dollar before you can withdraw.
Using your online sportsbook account at Bodog Sports is safe, quick and easy.
DEPOSITS - The minimum amount you can deposit is $20 (or currency equivalent e.g. GB£ 10, EU€ 10 or ZAR 100). US bettors can deposit by VirtualPIN, eWalletXpress or Credit Card (Visa, Mastercard). If you've hassles call them! Other options for non US residents include Neteller, PaySafeCard, Click2Pay, Moneybookers, eWalletXpress and Speedcard are accepted too.
WITHDRAWALS - A range of payout methods are available depending on where you live. In general use the same method to cash out as you did to deposit - unless you're cashing out big (in which case they'll send a check or bank wire it) Bodog in general covers your fees for all payouts.
