Q: "Dear SBR, with so many online sportsbooks offering NBA odds, where can an average guy go to make sure he's not being ripped off but can get the best value in the market? Many thanks"
-Paul from Montreal

A: Paul, great questions on a couple of fronts. First, before particular line value or bonuses are weighed, you have to make sure you're actually going to be paid your winnings. A sportsbook can dangle all the carrots in the world, but at the end of the day, when it comes time to collect you want to be certain you're getting paid. Just by asking the question shows your head is in the right place. Online sportsbooks rated a minimum of B+ and that have been in business five years or longer should be at the top of your list whether it's wagering NBA, cricket, or volleyball.

To answer the second part of your question, with respect to NBA there is a page called the NBA Betting Futures List. Here you can find the best industry sportsbooks' odds on 2015 NBA season futures, as well as a list to the NBA Prop Bet directory that assesses the line value of traditional game props. Best of luck in your journey.
