When looking for the best legal and licensed online sportsbook, bettors may be overwhelmed by the number of options offered in their state. With many states offering more than a dozen options, it’s hard to tell the difference.
Gaming Today will only recommend legal online sportsbooks that are licensed and regulated in the state in which they operate. We do not recommend offshore or illegal sportsbooks, which we believe are not in the best interests of our readers.
Some brands, like DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM, and BetRivers operate in many states with legal online betting. Other brands are more localized to their state. We continuously recommend a core group of top sports betting apps because they are licensed and regulated and are backed by big gaming companies you can trust.
Gaming Today ranks sportsbooks by examining the factors most important to bettors. We compare sportsbook odds to help bettors find the best value for their wagers. We provide a comparison of welcome bonus offers and ongoing promotions. Gaming Today also looks at the availability of the betting app, its stability, and ease-of-use. These are only some of the factors we consider when ranking our recommended sportsbook apps.
