When you scan the football odds at SBR, you should have the most important sportsbooks at the front of the line. We’ll show you how you can get your books in order.

You’ve heard it so many times, it’s become a cliche: Time is money. But it’s just as true today as it’s ever been. There are only so many hours in a day, so why waste them? The longer you have to spend navigating the NFL odds board (or the NCAAF odds, if you prefer college football to the pros), the less time you’ll have to make your actual football picks.

We’ve got a solution for that here at SBR. If you pull up the odds board and look near the top-right corner, just below those icons for Twitter and Facebook, you’ll find the SETTINGS button with a wrench Icon. Click on that, and a menu will pop up with two sections: Global Settings, and Books Order. The latter should be second from the left and is the one you want. You’ll see all the different recommended sportsbooks laid out in their current order – and you can swap them around to your liking. You can even have one layout for NFL, another for college football, and so on for each different sports. To have access to this panel, YOU MUST be an SBRforum member. This is 100% free and gives you access to our contests, free sportsbook, free online casino, and even SBR Poker tournaments. If you are not already a member, you can become an SBRForum Member Here

The whole point of this exercise is to put the most important sportsbooks for your chosen leagues at the front of the line. So which books should go first? Start with the ones you’ve already signed up for, then think about your jurisdiction and your preferred sport, and which books best serve your needs.

We’re going to throw out a few examples of books that cater to football bettors, but you'll want to place the books that YOU use the most:

BetOnline: First with overnight football odds, with more props and specials than other books.

Intertops: Experienced, competitive with their betting lines, featuring a tremendous mobile platform.

YouWager: Payouts are processed quickly, with ample bonuses available both at sign-up and for existing customers.

Pinnacle: High limits and pros are welcome. Pinnacle won't cut you off for continuous winning.

Giving your preferred books priority at the front of your queue will help you sort through the odds more quickly and free up more time for handicapping the games themselves. And isn’t that what we’re really all here for?
