Best Football Betting Sites

Welcome to Loot’s recommended football sportsbooks page! Here you’ll find a comprehensive list of the best football betting sites on the web along with our reasons why! All of these online bookies have been in business for many years and have a solid track record. When selecting an online betting site, it’s imperative that you select a book that offers integrity, a large number of wagering options, no hassle payouts upon request and plenty of perks. After all, there’s oodles of wagering sites out there. Competition amongst sportsbooks for your NFL bets means better deals for you! However, don’t get suckered in by giant promo offers from lesser known online bookies with unproven track records. As a general rule of thumb, the most important variable when selecting a sportsbook is their track record. Rest assured that when you’re playing with a Lootmeister recommended site, you’re betting with a company that is ROCK SOLID! Got questions? Feel free to drop us a line at and we’ll help ya out!

BetAnySports – You absolutely have to have them in your football betting arsenal! Most sportsbooks force you to lay -110 odds on football sides and totals. Five Dimes gives you discounted odds at -105! This will save you a TON of cash over the long haul. Pencil it out and you’ll see the difference! They also offer the most wagering options of any online sportsbook. They offer totals on every game, even small colleges. They also offer moneylines on almost all games. We even saw a ML for a college football game where the spread was -40! 20 point teasers, 25 team parlays, pleasers, etc, overnight nickel lines on MLB, they have it all! Lastly, they offer some of the fastest payouts in the industry. It’d be an understatement to say that 5 Dimes is the class of the online sports betting industry.

Bovada – We call BetAnySports the class of the industry, but the same could be said for Bovada. These guys have been in business since the late 90’s and are a top tier outfit. They’ve recently increased their sign-up bonus to 50% (up to $250 in free cash) which makes them even more attractive. They have opinionated/non cloned lines too, so you can find some point spreads here that you won’t see elsewhere. Your credit card will work here as well. Lastly, we love their customer service. Very professional and voted top customer service every year by industry insiders.

BetOnline Sportsbook – One of the biggest betting sites online. They’ve been around since day 1 and are very popular amongst sports bettors. They offer a generous signup bonus (varies; check site for current status) and are probably the best at getting credit cards to work for deposits. This bookie offers live betting on all major games and has a very user friendly website, one of our favorites.

GTBets – This company is the youngest on our recommended list, but is rock solid. This book featuers some really interesting incentives including a giant 100% signup bonus and “free points.” The free points option is an incredible value. Here’s how it works: When you sign up, you select your (2) favorite NFL football teams and (2) favorite college football teams. Every time you bet your favorite NFL tema you get a free half point. Every time you bet your favorite college football teams you get a free full point. Pretty sweet deal!

MyBookie – This should be your choice if you’re a parlay player. Their parlay payouts are absolutely off the hook and much higher than the competition. The reason for this is that they calculate parlay odds using a -107 line instead of the standard -110 that you get everywhere else. You will need to select their “Super Saver Bonus” option in order to take advantage of this great offer. *Note: You cannot have an account at MyBookie if you have an active betting account at BetAnySports. They’re owned by the same company and only one acct. per member is allowed.
