Recommended Sportsbooks

When choosing which sportsbooks to align with for affiliate partnerships, I went with the books that I personally use myself.  Even if you already have a sportsbook, I'd really recommend to add one or two more. It always pays to have options for line shopping and bet types, and you can't go wrong with any of the following ...

My highest recommendation goes to Pinnacle Sports. If you've been following my blog, you'll know that I'm always referencing them for my odds. They consistently have the best prices in the market, and they have easy, fast, and secure deposit/payout methods (Instadebit). For an in-depth review of their site, you can read their A+ rating from SportsBookReview (SBR).

My next best recommendation goes to Bodog (Bovada in the U.S.). Deposit/payouts are equally fast and secure (direct deposit or cheque), and I use them primarily for three reasons 1) they offer a wide array of props that you usually don't find anywhere else (especially fun specialty props & NHL player props). 2) they are a "square" book that caters towards casual bettors, so they usually overprice favorites, which gives us great prices for underdogs. 3) Regular sport-specific bonuses. They carry an "A" rating from SBR. (Bovada review here).

If you live in the U.S., I'd recommend 5Dimes. They offer odds that are very close to Pinny's, especially if you opt-in for their "reduced juice" option on sign up, and they have the best odds for futures betting. They are also the first major sportsbook to allow deposits/withdrawals with Bitcoin. They have an "A+" rating at SBR.
