Tips for off-season sports bettors
With the Super Bowl out of the way, there has never been a more important time to make sure you are playing with a well-funded and reputable online sportsbook. Many bookmakers deal with their biggest rush of withdrawals from North American players during this time-frame, so the importance of sticking with a proven establishment cannot be understated.
The following tips should help guide you in the right direction and keep your bankroll as safe as possible.
#1: Use sportsbook rating information
The letter grade system in the sportsbook ratings guide was not thought of overnight. Some of the sportsbooks listed in the comprehensive guide have been online since the late '90s. Ratings are for not sale and have been earned by merit.
#2: Consider what playes like you have to say
The annual SBR Posters Poll is usually a good indication of what's shaking in the industry. To earn a spot in the top five is no small task, and the bookmakers selected by a community of veteran posters should not be slept on.
#3: Manage your bankroll
With so many free handicapping resources at your disposal, there should be no compelling reason to avoid using tools such as the half-point calculator. Every small edge counts, and picking the right online sportsbook is only half the battle. Staying in the game is the other.
If you find yourself in a dispute with an online sportsbook, all hope is not list. Submit a sportsbook complaint with SBR and an analyst will review your ticket free of charge and advise you on what happens next.
