With all of the other changes that people in general go through with the start of every New Year, there will be the people that will question, “Where are the best places to bet on the NFL this year?”
If you find yourself new to the world of Online Betting, welcome! And if you are a returning reader, you’re going to want to go through this list anyway, as some things have changed! Is your personal favorite gambling site still making the best of the best? Let’s just jump right in and find out!
Every year I update my list with the best of the best and make sure that you go into the world on Online Betting with the best info to get you started off right. I’m going to make sure that you know all there is to know, with points like:
- Where will you get the best lines, or odds
- Where will you get the biggest bonus
- Who will accept not only your well known cryptos, but also the lesser-known ones
- Which site is going to be offering the most props bets
- Which sites will actually let you bet there
and so on!
Many, many, hours have been spent going through what the internet can offer the players and I am proud to say that I have found the best for you. What does this mean? It means a little less work for you so that you can get right into what matters the most – doing some Football Betting!
Feel free to just kind of scan through this and get the answers to most of the questions you have, or crawl along while I spill out all of the important details for you.
So what has ultimately changed since last year? Let’s find out!
The Best Places To Bet On The NFL in 2023
Bovada comes through once again as the number one pick by and far. Almost all of my lists will put Bovada at the top, and if for some reason they’re not on any particular list, they’re at least in the top three.
I’m sure you’re wondering why that is.
I have been working with them for many, many years now and those impressions the very first time I visited them are still holding true to this day. The fairness, honesty, transparency are all still there, you will have plenty of betting options, and some of the most timely payouts you’re going to find at any Online Sportsbook.
- Who Can Bet At Bovada?
Most people are going to find that they are able to go to Bovada and place their bets. There are a small handful of states that aren’t allowed thanks to various US laws. Those states are:
- New York
- New Jersey
Do you live in one of those states above? Bad news, you’ll just have to keep looking for a new place, but don’t worry. Just keep on reading and I’m sure you’ll find something!
- The Deposit Methods Available At Bovada
- The Odds And The Action Over At Bovada
Just about any real Online Gambling site you visit will make it very easy to find NFL action, it’s one of the biggest draws for bettors. Naturally, Bovada is no exception here, and they also make it very easy to set your personal preferences to American, Fractional, or Decimal odds depending on which you like to check out.
When you first get to the Bovada page, you’ll see their logo at the upper-left hand side of your screen with “Football” listed just beneath that. (That’s if you’re on your PC. If you’re on a mobile device it’ll probably be right at the top in the center.) Just click on that “Football” and you will be taken directly to the main Football page and you will be presented with all of the bets that are available to you at the moment.
However, to make things even easier, you can choose any specific games that you’re interested in, or strictly NFL games by just taking a look at the menu that will have popped up and you can filter by leagues, types of games, etc.
As for the types of bets that you can place there, while this is being written the choices are:
- Game Lines
- First Half Lines
- Second Half Lines
- Quarter Lines
- Team Totals
- Season Props
- NFL 2020 Sims
- The Bonuses At Bovada
If you’re the kind of person that’s into the bonus action of a site, you will be pleased with what Bovada has to offer, (just make sure that you completely understand any bonus you decide to take part in).
Let’s take a look at the Sportsbook offers that you can grab!
- $250 Sportsbook Welcome Bonus
- $750 Sportsbook Welcome Bonus
- The Rewards Program
This is good for those that want to deposit with traditional funds and with this promotion you can get yourself a 250% Match on the first deposit you make. You can get up to $250 with this one here, and you don’t need a code or anything for it.
For those that are using crypto to fund their account, you can get a 75% Bonus of up to $750 on your first deposit.
You would need the code BTCSWB750 to get in on this, and like the above promo, you only get to use it once and one time only!
Here’s a bonus just for doing what you love anyway! While you’re at Bovada you will automatically gain points for Sportsbook, Poker Room, or Casino activity. You can then redeem these points for Cash, or use them to do other fun stuff at the site such as entries to Poker Tournaments, etc.
You really should be joining more than one sportsbook to make sure that you’re getting the best odds, taking advantage of the best promotions, and so forth – but if you’re only going to join one, you really cannot go wrong with Bovada!
- Who Is Bovada Best For?
Honestly, anyone that’s not on that list of banned states up there!
You’ll find yourself at a solid sportsbook and if you’re doing a good bit of gambling, that Rewards Program is a really amazing program for you as long as you’re going to be there anyway.
Something I didn’t really touch on but is completely true? If you’re waiting for the next big game to come on or you’re otherwise looking to kill some time, the Poker Room is probably the best you’re going to find anywhere!
BetOnline is an absolutely fantastic choice for those that cannot go to Bovada or just want to play it safe and join more than one site.
BetOnline has always worked really hard in making a name for themselves and have come through time and again for the players by running not only a great sportsbook with great odds, but also a casino and poker room.
Over at BetOnline there doesn’t seem to be anyone that cannot join, and may be one of the best choices for those that love a variety of bonus action.
- Who Can Bet At BetOnline?
As stated just above, everyone! That is, assuming you don’t have any local laws that say you can’t join. It’s up to you to follow the laws wherever you live!
- The Deposit Methods Available At BetOnline
You can see on that table the deposit methods available to you over at BetOnline.
Take note that if you would like to use one of those Credit Card options you will have to pay a fee of 9.75% of the deposit. If you use crypto you will not have any fees, that’s just one more reason to switch to crypto for your betting needs.
If you would like to use eCheck, you will have a fee of 4.5%, but you’ll also see on the table that there is no minimum or maximum amount listed. That’s not a typo!
As for the listing for “Altcoin”, you will see that BetOnline not only accepts Bitcoin, but a decent amount of the lesser known coins.
- The Odds And The Action Over At BetOnline
When you arrive at BetOnline, there will be a banner at the top of the page. Just click on “Sports” and you will be taken to their main selection page. What will come up in the middle of the screen are the options for what they believe the biggest event(s) are at the time. As of this writing, it’s all NFL action! If you don’t see that, just scrolling down the options on the left of the screen will show you the current options.
As of right now we’re seeing options for:
- Teaser, and
- If bets
- The Bonuses At BetOnline
The people that love bonuses? Man, they’re going to love BetOnline! There are many choices to dig through and see what works for you, with options for the sportsbook as well as the casino, and their poker room.
Among the best for the sportsbook? The 50% Welcome Bonus of up to $1,000 as long as you use the code BOL1000 when you’re making your first deposit.
For those that are going to be returning to BetOnline to do some gambling, you’ll want to remember the code LIFEBONUS. This will get you a 25% Bonus on every reload on your account!
- Who Is BetOnline Best For?
BetOnline is going to be the best for those that just cannot go to other sites for whatever reason, as well as those that like variety in their bonus action.
Since they’ll accept gamblers from anywhere, this is a solid choice for, well, pretty much everyone!
If you have any interest in BetOnline, go and check them out. If you love them, you’ll love my next choice as well!
Okay, there really isn’t a whole lot to be said about SportsBetting.ag right at this moment.
The reason I’m bringing them up however, is because they’re owned by the same company that owns and runs BetOnline, just above.
For those out there that like to go out hunting down the best bonuses and promotions will want to make sure that they join both of these sites. You see, there will be plenty of bonuses at one of these sites that will make you say, “Oh yeah, I need to get in that one”, but said promotion is a “one time use-once per customer” kind of thing. There’s a 99% chance that that same promotion will also be available at the other site.
Going over all of the rules and regulations, terms and conditions, there’s no rule that says you cannot join both, essentially making it so that you get the same promo twice just by using it at the other site!
All of the pro’s that make it so that BetOnline makes my list of the best places to bet on the NFL are the same pro’s that make SportsBetting make the same list!
BookMaker came around to the scene of Online Sportsbooks many, many years ago with a business model in mind and they have never looked back. And why should they? If something’s not broken, it doesn’t need fixing!
Assuming that you, the player, go to BookMaker to see what they’re about and decide you like what you see, you can just sit back and relax. Things over that way will not be changing at all. This is a good thing! BookMaker came out, found a great operating model and they just stuck with it!
- Who Can Bet at BookMaker?
As I have mentioned with some of these other sites, BookMaker is open to pretty much everyone, and any local laws that need to be followed are completely up to you!
My advice? Always follow the law wherever you live!
- The NFL Action Over At BookMaker
Heading over to BookMaker and clicking on “Sportsbook” during football season will take you to a page where you can see the lines and the odds for games that are occurring for the next week or so, so that you can take a look at those and decide if you’d like to place your wagers there before you even get logged in.
See a game that you’re interested in? Click on the name of one of the teams. You’ll be taken to a short article that discusses said team, their offense and defense, where they currently are on their wins and losses, why the odds and statistics are currently looking the way they are – all kinds of stuff. This is great for the gamblers that would like to do just a little more homework before committing and placing their bets.
As for the bets themselves, you’ll be able to choose if you would like to place bets on the whole game, or just a half, or maybe even just a particular quarter!
Checking on some games right now just to see what’s going on, I’m currently seeing:
- Straight wins
And always remember that if you are into the NFL, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll be into some College Ball as well. If you’re not, you may want to check out some of that action! BookMaker is also great for offering the players plenty in the way of College Games!
- Depositing at BookMaker
As for the deposit options one would have over at BookMaker, you’ve got the following options:
- Credit Cards
- Bitcoin Cash
- Crypto Currencies
Looking at that list there, you will see that Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin are all listed, and then there’s also “Cryptocurrencies” listed. The reason I did that is this – By now you should all know what those 3 types of crypto are. For those of you out there that are using crypto but you have some of the lessor known coins, great news! BookMaker actually supports about 40 different types of altcoin.
The minimum and maximum amounts aren’t listed there just because the amount will change greatly depending on what type of coin you would like to use. Could be a minimum of $10, could be a maximum of $500,000. Could be various amounts in between, you’ll just have to go and check out your particular coin of choice.
- The Bonus Action Over At BookMaker
Speaking of crypto, those that return to BookMaker will find a Reload Bonus of up to $5,000 every time they reload their account, so you may want to be sure to take a look at that!
Those that would like to use more traditional forms of payment, BookMaker hasn’t forgotten about you!
You can find Reload Bonuses of 10,15, or even 20% depending on the loyalty level you are at.
- Who Is BookMaker Best For?
A couple types of player, really.
1) Those that have somehow acquired some random crypto and they really have no idea what to do with it, and
2) Those that have a little bigger bankroll than some others may have. I mean, a Reload Bonus of up to $5,000? Yes, please!
MyBookie is one of the oldest Sportsbooks that you’re going to find on the internet. That’s a good thing in itself. They’re also great at making sure to really take players that just have that itch and need to place some bets that you just won’t find at other places.
2020 wasn’t that long ago. You probably remember the whole pandemic and shutdowns and lockdowns, all that good stuff. MyBookie was one of the few sites that really reached out to find something for the gamblers to hold them over until things picked up again. At that time, the players got to learn about all kinds of new events to bet on, such as politics, the weather, table tennis, just all kinds of random stuff!
- Who Can Gamble Over At MyBookie?
Everyone! Yup, they’re one of those sites to leave it up to you!
There is something that the gambler needs to know, and that is the fact that they have always promoted themselves as a site that really caters to the “older” crowd out there. Now, the younger players may still have a great time, as they should. MyBookie is freakin’ awesome! Those players just aren’t going to find anything really “flashy” or “exreme” over that way.
There’s a reason that needed to come up, which I will get to in down the page when XBet comes up!
- Depositing Options at MyBookie
When you get ready to make a deposit over at MyBookie you will have the following options available to you:
- Visa, MasterCard prepaid, credit and debit cards
- Bitcoin Cash
- Person to Person
Usually, when a sportsbook doesn’t accept a particular payment option, you figure it out by the option just not being listed. For reasons unknown to me, MyBookie wants to make it very, very clear that they do not accept Paypal, so you’ll just have to find another way besides that!
When depositing with a credit card you will have a minimum deposit of $45 as well as a maximum amount of $2,500. If you go to the cashier and check out your personal “available amount” you can see any daily and/or weekly rules that are attached to your account.
If you haven’t already gotten on the Bitcoin train, here’s another reason that you may want to rethink it. The minimum and maximum amounts will be very different, but there is a 100% Success Rate on your deposits and withdrawals as opposed to your credit card company which may be declined by your bank.
- The NFL Action Over At MyBookie
When checking out the current NFL action, we have the following types of bets that can be placed:
- Game Odds
- 1st Half Lines
- 2nd Half Lines
- Quarter Lines
- Super Bowl LVII Odds
- NFL Futures
And this is just for now at the time. Usually, that list over at MyBookie is actually much, much bigger.
- The Bonus Action Available
Most of the bonuses and promotions that you’re going to find over at MyBookie are for their casino side of things, but there are still a couple of decent ones for the sportsbook guys and gals as well.
There are the Double Deposits, the 25% Reloads, the 10% Cash Bonuses… they haven’t forgotten about you at all!
And while these aren’t really bonuses per se, you’ll probably want to check out their contests while you’re there, they’re among the best in the business. There’s almost always some type of Super Contest related to the current season, the Survivor Contest for those that want to prove they know just a little more than the next guy, and always just a good old fashioned Squares Contest.
- Who Is MyBookie Best For?
The gamblers that want to do their betting on any specific event as soon as possible with some of the best lines around.
Not only will MyBookie have some of the best lines and odds that you’re going to find, but they usually put them out first. In fact, there are a lot of sportsbooks out in the wild you’ll find that won’t even publish their odds until MyBookie does so first.
Now, you may not realize it, but if you have spent any previous time looking for the best of the best in sportsbooks, you have already heard of EveryGame. You see, it’s been a little while now, probably a couple of years or so, but EveryGame used to be called Intertops, they just decided to change their name. They’re still owned and run by the same company, the gamblers are still going to find the same great promotions and odds for NFL games.
The only thing that changed was the name and logo. Why they took on a new name, I have no idea. I know that they had a fantastic site and still do, nothing else changed!
- Who Can Gamble At EveryGame?
Everyone. While they were still Intertops, they gladly accepted the players from all over the world and that hasn’t changed at all.
Since nothing has changed at the site, you can be rest assured that your money is nice and safe over that way.
Fun fact – EveryGame actually took the first Online Sports Bet about 30 years ago and have been chugging along ever since. In that time, there were plenty of companies with poor practices, scams, or were just jerks for no reason and they’re not around anymore. EveryGame is still right here!
- Depositing At EveryGame
If you can get ahold of a credit card, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, or a money order, you’ll be ready to go and place some bets. We’ll get to their promotions in just a moment and you’ll see that you can really get a lot of bang for your buck!
Here are the details on the deposit action:
|Type||Minimum Required||Maximum Allowed|
|EU SEPA||No Limit||No Limit|
It does seem odd that bitcoin and the other cryptos have such a low limit in comparison with everyone else, but that’s just the way it is there!
- NFL Action at EveryGame
For the football fan, not only will you find yourself some awesome Football-specific promotions such as 4x$100 for FREE, or win Trips to the Super Bowl, but but just the regular old football betting action is great as well! As of right now, the types of bets you’ll find are:
- Player Awards
- Game Props
- Player Props
- Touchdown Scorers
- Season Props
- Season Player Props
EveryGame will make sure that you’ve got all kinds of stuff to bet on!
- The Bonuses And Promotions At EveryGame
If you would like to check out some promotions that nobody else is going to be offering, you’ll really love EveryGame. There’s a yearly Win A Trip To The Super Bowl contest that anyone can win as long as they just place a single bet on the NFL. For those that are also into basketball action, there’s also the Win A Trip To The Final Four!
Beyond that, you can almost always get involved with other stuff like winning yourself some Free Bets and all kinds of other goodies!
If you like some casino action, you will want to take note that there’s not just one, but two casinos that are attached to EveryGame, both with their own promos and bonuses.
You would have your work cut out for you trying to find a sportsbook/casino that’s more transparent and open, more honest than EveryGame. Lump that together with the time they’ve been in the business and you know that you’re at one of the best of the best!
- Who Is EveryGame Best For?
Really, 2 types of people:
- Those that not only love betting on sports, but also love contests. There seems to always be a few contests you can get into for very low cost, or even free, and
- Those that love casinos as much as sportsbetting. There’s a ton of cash waiting to be won that way, and if you go and decide you just don’t like the bonuses and promotions at the casino, you can always go to their other one which has a completely different list!
Now I’m coming to XBet, told ya I’d be getting to it!
I have already talked about MyBookie catering to a (mostly) older crowd. XBet goes the other way. Imagine if Monster Energy Drinks made a sportsbook and you have XBet. They are over there doing there thing and run one hell of a site and they’re also great at taking on any new customers and treating them well. They’re also obviously marketing themselves toward a younger set of gamblers.
The reason that XBet and MyBookie usually get discussed together is because of the fact that the two are owned by the same company. You’ll get the same great service and customer support at either. If you were to go to these two sites and really go through each of them with a fine toothed comb you would see that the biggest difference is just going to be the theme of the sites.
- Who Can Bet At XBet?
You may have already surmised that anyone is welcome over at XBet, but you may or may not want to swap them out for MyBookie, it all depends on your personal preference. Since the two are owned by the same group, it stands to reason that everything they do is completely on purpose.
- The Deposit Methods At XBet
Here are the options that you’ll find over that way.
- VISA, MasterCard
- Bitcoin Cash
- Person 2 Person
Obviously, there’s not really anything out of the ordinary there, but you can see that whether you’re a crypto person or a more traditional payment person, there’s some way that you can make your deposit very easily!
- What Kinds Of Bets Are Available at XBet?
Getting past all of the flashy pictures and you find yourself checking out the NFL options, you’ll see that you can choose these types of bets:
- Game Odds
- Next Week Odds
- First Half Lines
- Touchdown Props
- Field Goal Props
- Team Totals
- Quarter Lines
- Super Bowl Odds to Win
- Any Promotions or Bonuses?
Oh, of course! Once again, we may not be looking at the biggest list of all time, but the ones that are there are pretty nice. Not only will the sportsbook lovers find themselves a great Welcome Bonus of up to $500, but so will the casino lovers! As for those that have been to XBet and made a deposit in the past, you can still get a Reload Bonus of up to $250 each time.
One of the first things you may see when you visit XBet is their favorite slogan, “Welcome to the last sportsbook you’ll ever join“.
I am going to say here that I do not agree with that. You should absolutely be joining more than one so that you can ensure 2 things.
1) That you’re going to get the best promotions and bonuses that are available to you, and even if you aren’t “bonus grabber”, you still need to be aware of number 2:
2) You want to make sure that you’re getting the best odds with whatever it is that you want to gamble on!
Now as for the Contests that you’re going to find over at XBets, this is where they nail it! You will find them listed separately from the bonuses but once you’re there you will find some amazing opportunities to win some extra cash!
- So Who Is XBet Best For?
Those gamblers out in the wild that want to check out what a sportsbook has to offer and spend their time equally at the sportsbook, the casino, and the racebook.
When you look throughout all of their bonuses and promotions you will see that there’s always going to be a little something for everyone!
So which sportsbook is right for you?
That’s a question you have to answer, I just can’t do that for you. I do know that if you choose any of the ones that are on this list you’re going to be having a great time no matter what.
Basically, you’ve have just finished the best of the best list, and if you need to, scroll back up and check it out again. Check out the “Who Is This Site Best For” sections and take it from there!
If you would like a full detail on any of the promotions that are available at any of these sites you can check out our sister site, SportsBookPromoCodes!
You’ve got the knowledge.
As always, good luck with all of your betting!
