    D- is right, until they payback the money they stole.

    I play there, but I wouldn't recommend it.

    I am guessing you mean "I play there, and I know what I'm doing and understand the risks. That said, I would not recommend this book to a recreational bettor"?

    Exactly. (but that doesn't mean they should be rated any higher)

    Fair enough. I'd never recommend a non-A+ book to a guy who just wants to bet games on TV or whatever. He's going to lose anyways so might as well have a guaranteed payout if he gets lucky.

    While we have our pat vendittos on SBR, I imagined most people in the Sportsbooks & Industry subforum were non-recreational. These are the only people I would recommend SBG to.

    There are two things going on with SBR ratings. You want them to reflect the probability of a stiff in the future, but they also have to act as punishment for past misdeeds. That being said, I'd say a D- undervalues SBG's worth to a sharp bettor, as you have attested to. That is all I've ever wanted to get across about SBG.

    Rig city. Payouts are tedious and slow with the sportsbook. Customer service is inconsistent and many times rude or disinterested. This book sucks. You can find better with the help here.

    SBG is a smart scam book. They has already stole more than $50k from a single player, and more than million in total stealing in smart ways. should be downgraded to F. need to stay away from them..
