Legal vs Illegal Sportsbooks
A guide to help you make sure you’re using a legitimate sports betting site.
What is Betting News?
Betting News aims to be a go-to resource for North American sports bettors new and old.
Knowing what bets to make is important, and a big part of what we do is offering information and advice to help bettors with determining their daily bets on everything from the NFL to tennis.
But knowing where to bet, what kinds of sports betting options are at your disposal, the types of promotions and rewards that may be on offer, and what popular betting terms mean is equally as important, and we have you covered there as well.
We do this by providing written and video content on the most important stories and biggest events in sports betting, collecting and presenting critical information such as picks and odds from across the industry, reviewing and suggesting online betting sites and tools, and much more!
