Bovada/Bodog Review

This is an honest review from an active Bodog user. TheBRKDWN was not provided any solicitations from Bodog/Bovada for the writing of this article.

Why are we doing two sportsbooks in one review you ask? Well technically Bovada and Bodog are like siblings in the sportsbook world with Bodog being the big brother and Bovada being the little sister. For the most part these two sportsbooks are almost identical, providing many of the same wagering options however there are some small differences mainly in website design.

First off, Bodog is the Canadian-parent company of Bovada. Bodog was launched in 1994 and then their American sister, Bovada was launched in 2011. Both sites are extremely well-known and trusted and it has also been rumoured that they have some of the best customer service support in the industry as well. Their sportsbooks allow you to wager on so many different sports and events including esports, NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, NCAA football, NCAA basketball, international basketball, WNBA, soccer, volleyball, curling, UFC, MMA, boxing, cricket, handball, cycling, entertainment, snooker, Aussie rules, horse racing, rugby, badminton, golf, darts, Olympics, auto racing, NASCAR, Formula 1, and tennis.

If you are into live sports betting and you live within the Canadian or American borders these sportsbooks are designed especially for you. Bodog and Bovada both provide many live betting options for nearly all sports, especially those most popular sports that majority of people enjoy wagering on. Their live lines are dynamic and change constantly based on the events occurring in game and the bets being placed by the public. In my opinion, Bodog/Bovada are definitely the two best sportsbooks for live betting however if you are live betting on either book, be sure to double check your lines and odds because they tend to move very rapidly.

Bodog and Bovada are not only a sportsbook. They are unique and different from most of their competitors because they combine as a sportsbook, casino and poker room all in one and are probably one of the most well known “triple threats” out there on the market.

Unfortunately neither sites have an app that can be downloaded to bet on however both apps have extremely well built mobile websites that can be accessed easily on mobile devices and functions fully meaning you can make deposits to your account or place any bets available just as if you were on one of Bodog or Bovada’s desktop sites.

The only methodof deposit and withdrawal that we endorse or will recommend with any sportsbook is Bitcoin or any other form of cryptocurrency. To us, this is the safest, quickest and most convenient method. You do not need to be a crypto currency expert to do this, if you have questions – google is your friend or reach out to us… We are happy to help!

Personally as a Canadian I use Bodog as my main online sportsbook because it was the first book I ever signed up on and because I love the interface and design of their website, however, I do shop for the best odds at multiple online sportsbooks and I will admit that about half the time when I shop around for the best odds, I usually find the best odds elsewhere. If I am ever looking to live bet, Bodog is the first online sportsbook I will turn to.
