In a sea of tough competition, finding the best online sportsbook may seem like finding a needle in a hay stack. As an avid sports fan and online gambler, I can tell you for a fact that it is.

There are many sportsbooks out there, and many of them use the same lines and offer the same basic betting options as the next one, until they all kind of jumble together in one big, similar heap. Open note to all of those sites: if your bells and whistles are all cookie-cutter, they don’t ring nearly as loudly as they should. In fact, they’re hardly bells and whistles any longer, wouldn’t you say?

Now that I’m off that particular soapbox, my task in writing this article was to find the sportsbook(s) that offer punters something a little different, a little off the beaten path, that helps it / them to rise above the mainstream fray all while managing to kick the online betting industry up another notch.

Found ’em.

At Wiliam Hill, bettors get all of the standard bells and whistles that they can find at other sites, but they’ll also get quite a few extras that make visiting this top-quality site more than worthwhile.

For example, bettors have the opportunity to place bets on lines after a game has already started. In addition, bettors can find a wide range of subjects to bet on – not limited to sports. Television reality shows, film, and political events are just some of the many options a member can choose from.

At Bet365, punters always get the most variety of betting options: not only can bettors place wagers on sports, current events, politics, stock predictions, Hollywood gossip, and the weather – that’s right, theweather! – are all up for grabs. And some of the extras that Bet365 offers are really one of a kind, from Bet365 Radio and much-coveted freebies.
