There couldn’t be a better time of year then now to be a sports gambler. The obvious reason this week is the news of the United States Supreme Court giving the thumbs up to the legalization of gambling outside the state of Nevada.
Las Vegas, Nevada has been the capitol of the sports betting world since the 1950’s and they will continue to be, however, the dynamics of this game have now changed. Las Vegas no longer holds a monopoly. They are powerful and will always be but they lost a lot of power in this decision by the SCOTUS.
The doors are now open to internet gambling, this opens the door to you the consumer. No more underground, hiding out hoping the IRS doesn’t come calling. Not that any of that ever happened in a million years before and it certainly won’t happen now. Internet gambling has been huge since the late 90’s and all the government has ever wanted was a slice of the pie. Now, they won’t even get that!
States have a choice, they can follow federal guidelines or they can legislate their own laws to govern the local lay of the sports gambling in their state. Certainly not all of the states are going to allow sports gambling, at least not at this time. New Jersey looks to be the first state to get the ball rolling and the local sports gamblers can thank ex-Governor Chris Christie.
Online bookies will be busy for the next few weeks signing up new customers, sharpe players, squares, weekend warriors, whomever it is, everyone wants in.
Right now is the best time to get in, the bookies are offering great player bonuses and the sports season is hotter than ever with baseball six weeks in, and the NBA and NHL in the middle of the conference finals; we are in the middle of the best part of the gambling season.
Finding a balance:
There are online bookmakers that specialize in specific sports such as baseball. This MLB season is already turning into a great one. The Yankees are playing lights out and they have some serious competition with the Red Sox in tow.
What are you looking for?
Find a bookie that not only offers a great baseball bonus, find one that offers great lines and odds. A bonus is great but if they don’t compete with other bookies when it comes to the juice, then what’s the point?
Players want reliability; they want honesty in a bookmaker. There are honest bookies and doing your homework to find them will pay in the long run. Don’t sell yourself short. The NFL and NCAA football seasons are right around the corner. Start planning now and you won’t be sorry later. Finding a bookmaker that offers a wide variety of betting options is one of the more important factors when it comes to winning consistently.
Read the reviews. There are a few great review sites available on the internet. It will pay to read them, find out who the best bookies are before making a deposit. Most of all, be prepared to win money. Do your homework and it will pay off.
