SBR Network Now Under One Roof; SBRforum.com merges with Sportsbook Review

14 hours ago
Sportsbook Review began in 1999 as a log of sportsbook activity, player feedback and a dispute resolution service. Based on the information from a growing player audience SBR launched the first Sportsbook Rating Guide in 2002. In 2004 SBR took online sportsbook comparison a step further with SBRodds.com which put bookmaker odds and price margins side by side. In 2005 the SBR network added a posting forum for players to share their opinion of the best sportsbooks, complaints, and handicapping info . The following year SBR, through SBRforum.com, began hosting information for handicapper matchups, game stats, shared free picks, and game breakdowns from sports analysts. Newer websites include SBRpoker.com and SBRvideo.com. Each site served players differently. Due to the growing number of customizable features for which players use a single account ID to log in to the SBR network, all sites have been consolidated under SportsbookReview.com. However, all features remain and are accessible through the same branded website pages. Below is a short list of some of the features in the SBR network. 

SBRforum.com: The website hosts handicapper tools such as betting calculators, matchups and league pages. The most popular league pages in July were UFC picks, MLB picks and Soccer picks. All analysis, including info for the 2014 NFL season, can now be found on SportsbookReview.com/Picks.

SBRvideo.com: In 2006 SBR launched a video production studio. Powered by a talented video team that works largely behind the scenes and hosts Peter Loshak and Natalie Rydström in front of the camera SBR has published 1000s of video features. SBR will continue its growing video coverage of both handicapping of sporting events and industry news at SportsbookReview.com/Video.

Betpoints and the SBRstore: Players within the SBR community can use their free BetPoints to play against each in the SBRpoker Room (In mid 2010 SBR began working on its own poker software for members), bet at the SBRsportsbook.com or win enter contest at SBRcontests.com. SBR Trivia, played within the posting forum, is another great free way to collect. Betpoints can be redeemed for real prizes in the SBRstore.
Note: SBRcontests.com will soon be launching its 10th Annual Beat The Pick Football Handicapper contest

Forum.SBRforum.com: The aforementioned posting community can now be found at SportsbookReview.com/Forum.

SBRodds.com: The free live odds service can still be accessed directly or at Sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds. Over 200 additional leagues that will include every soccer and tennis match will be introduced before Super Bowl 50.
