There are plenty of unsavory sportsbooks out there, including several of the better-known sportsbooks, who have a reputation of giving bettors the runaround when it comes time to try and withdraw their funds. People are always asking me which sportsbooks I would recommend, so I decided to list them all here.

If possible, I always recommend legal sportsbooks, which is now easier than ever for a number of people due to the overturning of PASPA. There are 13 states with legalized sports betting and most will allow to wager from anywhere in the state. If you live in a state where sports betting is legal, that is always the best avenue to take.

For those who live in a state that hasn't legalized sports betting yet, your two options are local bookies or offshore sportsbooks. These are the two offshore sportsbooks I'd recommend, although others, such as 5Dimes and Pinnacle (if you live outside the United States) aren't bad choices, either.
