    Hi all. As I watch 8 games at once on direct TV I was wondering..... If someone (Not me as I know it is illegal) hypothetically of course wanted to make wagers online which online sports book would you trust? Who pays easy? Who has the best lines? Who has the best phone customer service? Again, just inquiring as I don't bet on sports. :beer:

    Thanks

    I've used Bodog (now Bovada). I also used sportsbetting.com several years ago. However, my wagers were small. They have always paid out (check or wire). The most I cashed out at one time was ~1k.

    They have nice match bonus for your first deposit.

    They also have live dealers for roulette, BJ and baccarat. I have tried it in the past. Very interesting.

    Bovada is what I use, I cashed out $3500 last month with no issues. Checks came with in 3 days of requesting.

    I use Intertops, but somebody said they are not accepting new accounts. I've used them for over 15 years and never had a problem cashing out. OK, it's rare, but if the Pack wins the SB, I've had a some very nice payouts. Direct deposit to my bank account with some nondescript payee name.

    Bovada, whom I used to use, always has worse lines than some of the other books and they really hit you with a lot of juice, post lines late and sometimes don't even put some games up.

    I used to use intertops too. I found sportsbook.ag to be better and switched many years ago.

    I started using someone local about 2 years ago and stopped using sportsbook.ag. I've had a few issues cashing out with them including one bounced check from a Canadian bank. Apparently it was from a closed account. The customer service was good and I got back the bounced check fees and everything, but that left a bad taste in my mouth for them.

    Sportsbookreview.com is a good place to find a new book.

    One other thing I just thought of... the reason I really liked sportsbook.ag and continued to use them even after my payout problem is that they have a 3 team 10 point teaser for football that I love to play. That bet isn't featured at many of the sites I looked at. At least, it didn't used to be.

    I've been thinking about trying out Bovada. My coworker is always using it on his phone.
