Bet Basics is not like your other sports betting websites. We’re for bettors by bettors and thoroughly analyze big data to help give our bettors the edge over the bookmakers. Making informed wagers is the key to becoming a profitable bettor. Here at Bet Basics, we provide you with all the tools you need to find the best possible odds and lines for your bets. Whether you’re a betting beginner or a seasoned pro, our in depth game analysis, market movement tools, betting alerts and bet slip tool help you ignore the BS and focus on real betting opportunities.

The Bet Basics Market Prediction tool analyzes the market movements and odds fluctuations from dozens of different top sportsbooks, before collating that information for an indication on where the market is heading. Understanding where the flow of betting money is going is a crucial tool bettors can use to help them make more informed decisions before making any real money bets on NBA, NFL and MLB games.

We review dozens of different sportsbooks in order to find the best experience and value for our users. Some of the different factors we look at include customer service, regular and enticing bonuses and offers, efficient deposit and withdrawal methods, compliance and regulation, ease of use, and a strong variety of game and markets to bet on. Each factor has it’s own score, and some will immediately rule out a sportsbook from the list – for example, not having a license to operate in your state. Ultimately we provide you with a thorough analysis so you can make an informed decision on who to wager your hard-earned money with.

Our mission here at Bet Basics is to make betting on NBA, NFL and MLB as straightforward and fun as possible, no matter what your level of betting experience. We put a big emphasis on helping newbies wrap their heads around betting terminology and other key skills like understanding how to read odds and interpret lines. Our ‘Basics’ section has everything you’ll need to fully understand sports betting, sportsbook bonuses and more. When you’re done, head to our sports betting quiz section to test your skills!

The biggest red flag bettors should avoid when looking to find a sportsbook to bet with is not being able to find proof of their license anywhere on their website. Top legal sportsbooks will happily display their license, usually near the bottom of their home page. If you can’t find this, don’t bet with them! Other things to be wary of are sportsbooks with poor or unresponsive customer service, bonuses and promotions that seem too good to be true and a limited selection of betting markets and odds.

The best place to start is find a sportsbook with a strong reputation, such as BetMGM, FanDuel, DraftKings, Caesars 888sport or Bet365 to name a few. You can find thorough reviews of all these and more at our list of Bet Basics recommended 100% licensed and regulated legal sportsbooks.

Some of the main features bettors should look for when signing up at a sportsbook are strong customer service, VIP care, competitive odds, a strong variety of betting markets and ongoing promotions and bonus offers.
