USbetting.org’s Rating Process
Our site is filled with sportsbook reviews, rankings, and all sorts of different betting guides. We use a specific process to come up with accurate and valuable information to share with our readers, but the real question is – how can you be sure that we’re a reliable source?
That’s when this article kicks in!
This page explains our review process in great detail and showcases how we pick the best sportsbooks to recommend. We also cover all the factors we consider when creating our rankings and explain what differentiates our system from other reviewers.
The Rating Criteria
Our experts rank sportsbooks based on the six criteria we explain below. Each of these criteria contains several additional steps, which ensures our reviewers never miss anything important.
After the final score is set and every part of a betting site is thoroughly checked, our experts provide their informed opinion. It’s not all about the numbers and features, which is why we also focus on how a sportsbook feels and whether the whole betting experience is any good.
Security is the first and the most important thing we check before reviewing anything else on a betting site. Only legal and licensed online sportsbooks are welcome to USbetting.org. If a betting operator doesn’t have all the required licenses to do business within the law, we don’t feature them on our site.
US Sportsbooks offer a range of welcome bonuses and an extensive selection of promotions for existing customers. We list, explain and compare all the special offers available when reviewing betting sites.
Odds and Markets
Selection of markets and quality of odds are probably two of the most important factors we consider. They directly affect your potential profits, so learning as many details as possible is always worthwhile.
Apart from the odds and markets, we also examine other factors that affect the betting experience, such as live betting, cashback, and other betting features.
Every decent sportsbook in the US offers bespoke betting apps for iOS and Android platforms. Our reviews show how to get these apps and everything they offer regarding odds, markets, bonuses, and betting features.
Payment methods are another important factor to consider when choosing your next online sportsbook. When picking the most suitable banking option, you need to think about deposit limits, withdrawal times, and even fees.
We list all the available payment options and point out the most convenient ones. You should also think about security, but luckily, all the sportsbooks and payment methods we recommend are tested and 100% safe.
Customer support is your direct connection with the sportsbook, so it must be quick and reliable. That’s why we check response times, as well as the channels you can use to reach them. Since most bettors use live chat support, we focus on it the most, apart from checking email and phone availability.
