Sportsbook Round Up At A Glance
Bovada (formerly Bodog in the US) are one of the freshest thinkers in the online sportsbook world. Always coming up with new ideas and promotions whilst offering the fundamentals in a clear and concise package. The homepage is a rather nice place to be. Well designed and displaying the classic black and deep red Bovada look that runs throughout the site. I particular like the way the betting odds are laid out with easy navigation, understandable bets and a stylish look to boot. Whilst the look is not so important from a players point of view, this does not detract from the fact that Bovada is gaining an excellent reputation, with tight security and fast, friendly customer service. One account also gives you access to the poker and casino rooms, reviews of which can be found on our sister sites.

Bovada also features in depth statistics on a dizzying array of sports and these can be found to the right of each page marked in a banner by the title “Bovada Sports Statistics”. A new window will open and allow you to find just about any stat that you can imagine for the sports featured. I do think that some of the features are buried a little deep on the homepage but this is a minor complaint and with a little time and patience, finding your way around, will rarely be a problem.

Bovada also has a variety of bet types from prop bets to accumulators, some of which stretch over as many as 15 to 26 bets. An explanation of each type can be found in the “Live In Play Betting” (or BovadaLIVE) help section. For example; “a Patent consists of three selections in three different events. One or more selection must be successful for a return. A Patent has three singles, three doubles and one treble, a total of seven bets”. If you have any problems understanding these bet types then don’t hesitate to contact the Bovada support.
