MTS In The News

The team at MyTopSportsbooks has several recognized experts. Here are some of the media outlets that have featured our expertise:

Our Mission

We know how important it is to find the right sportsbook for you. We take our role in this seriously. With so many operations out there, we know that our expertise is key to keeping you safe online.

This is why we produce our detailed reviews. The first and most important criterion for our reviews is safety. We make sure the odds are safe and their payouts are processed quickly.

But out mission goes beyond that. We do not just consider safety in general, but we consider the needs of different bettors. This is how we contribute to helping you have the best online sports betting experience.

Our Reviews

MyTopSportsbooks.com has offered unbiased reviews of online sports betting sites for more than ten years. Our reviewers have all had first-hand experience with sportsbooks over the years. While not every season has been a winning one, the ups and downs have not only made betting more exciting, but have really given us a glimpse at how each book treats its customers.

Our top rated online sportsbooks include: Bovada, GTbets, BookMaker, Betway, WagerWeb, Bodog, Bet365, Bet Victor, BetOnline, 888sport, William Hill, among others. Each of our picks for these gambling sites are rated on a variety of factors.

  • Bonuses – Not just the one-time sign-up bonus, but reload bonuses and other ongoing promotions.
  • Customer service – Very important to have someone to hear you out as well as pay you out.
  • Banking – Do they make it easy to play right away by accepting credit cards? Are their payouts smooth and fast?
  • Sportsbook features – What types of unique wagering options do they offer to keep things interesting.
  • Overall – Getting to the point, is this sportsbook worthy of your business?

In our combined 50 years of sports betting, we’ve had some really positive sportsbook experiences as well as some regrets. MyTopSportsbooks.com is the site we wished existed in the mid-90s, when we first started betting online. However, it’s just as important to stay informed today to get that extra edge.

Gambling Legislation

The legal gambling patchwork across the United States is increasingly diverse and complicated. Not to mention all of the moving parts, constitutional battles, and voter referendum. For anyone who does not follow gambling legislation in a detailed and daily way would find it dizzying to keep up with everything that is happening.

That is where we come in. We cover gambling legislation on both a national and a state level. Wherever you live, you can check out your state’s sports betting legalization status in our legal guides. Plus, we only recommend sports betting sites that are currently legally available in your state.

Ever since 2018, when the Supreme Court opened up the possibility for different states to begin legalizing, regulating and taxing their own sportsbooks, things became complicated in the legal scene. This case, Murphy v. National Collegiate Athletic Association, allowed any state to legalize their own sportsbooks.

However, if states do not take active moves towards regulation, you can still use online sports betting sites that are based offshore. In fact, these are often the best options available no matter what!

Responsible Gambling

Gambling responsibly is an important part of being a smart bettor. This is something that you should keep an eye on in order to enjoy this form of entertainment. Sportsbooks have safety mechanisms such as self-exclusion that will allow you to block websites and access.

It is also a good idea to implement bankroll management, so you can keep an eye on exactly how much you are spending. This will help keep things under control.

Doing research and taking your time to make the best bets is also a way to keep the betting to a safe level. If you spend more time thinking about each wager, it becomes more difficult to go on a betting spree.

Remember, gambling should be seen as a fun form of entertainment, rather than as an income source.
