Our top rated betting site for Americans.

  • Accepts American players exclusively
  • Wide variety of betting lines
  • American sister site to Bodog

As you can probably tell this site is targeted towards Canadians, but seeing as about 20% of our visitors are still from the United States I felt the need to recommend at least one sportsbook to our American guests.

Bovada is American facing sister site of Bodog, which is one of our top 3 sportsbooks for Canadians.  This makes it very easy for me to recommend because the Bodog/Bovada brand is and sportsbook are identical so I’ve had a lot of good experiences with them in the past.  As an American I’m sure you’ve heard of Bovada by now, as they promote themselves often through National Media such as CBS Sports, USA Today and more.

The Sports Betting CanadianAmericans are welcome at Sports Betting Canadian!  That said, USA residents are not welcome at the majority of online betting sites (including our top 3 sites for Canadians).  That’s why I made this review to recommend the #1 sportsbook for US residents.  And it just so happens to be the sister site of one of our top sportsbooks, so I feel like I have a very good understanding of the sportsbook and feel comfortable making the recommendation!

North American Sports Coverage

As an American Bovada offers lines on everything you would want to bet on.  They take bets on the NFL, college football, NBA, college basketball, NHL, MLB and much more.  You should be able to bet on all major North American sports at Bovada, and also many other lesser known sports.

Deposit Options

Your best bet is to use your Visa or MasterCard when depositing at Bovada.  They have a great acceptance rate because they are solely focused on the United States market, which allows them to work with the payment processing companies to best get your funds in and out of the site.

They also now accept Bitcoin deposits and also offer Rapid Transfer as a banking option.  I suggest contacting Bovada customer support if you have any issues depositing or cashing out.
