The sports fever runs deep in New Jersey and in turn the featured sports bets revolve around the biggest, most popular sports. Baseball, basketball and football are of course all featured on the Borgata site.
The site also features hockey, as New Jersey is very proud of their NHL team, the Devils. The website also offers other popular sports to make bets on, such as golf, tennis and boxing. The site can also become very exotic with sports available like cricket and Aussie Rules Football. There is also a section called the daily boost section that features bets from any sports where the odds have been heavily increased in favor of the player. The bets are featured only within the main leagues of the top sports (NBA, NHL, MLB) but there are a wide variety of bets to choose from. The sportsbook also features all top soccer leagues while also including lesser known leagues such as Dutch League, Russian League etc.
The website layout is simple and easy to navigate, but nothing in the way of fun to use. In terms of navigating to find bets or game offers, it feels more like work than a fun activity to do on the weekend. The home page has a scroll down list displaying all upcoming games/ events separated by sport. At the top are the boosted bets that will be featured for a limited time.
Football is naturally very popular with the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Jets and Giants nearby. The Giants even technically play in New Jersey, since their stadium “Metlife” is located in East Rutherford. So, you can probably guess that Borgata features a wide variety of bets available for football and you would be right.
The Borgata website features the NFL, CFL and NCAA College Football leagues. The bets on these leagues are for current, live and futures. For NCAA, it is possible to bet on the line of certain games as well who will the win the Heisman or National Championship.
On the NFL you can bet on the game line or on totals. You may also take a chance and bet on who will win the Super Bowl, conference or division. As well as who will win various awards like Offensive/ Defensive Rookie of the Year, MVP, Coach of the Year and more. For the CFL your options are limited to Grey Cup winner and division winners.
Basketball is one of the most popular sports to bet on in America and Borgata understands this well by listing a large number of possibilities for players. The NBA here has many bets featured on the site. Borgata offers two award bets for the upcoming season, allowing the player to bet on the next MVP as well as the next Rookie of the Year.
Also featured in futures betting are division winners, conference winners and the next NBA champion. Borgata’s sportsbook also has some interesting bets for the 2019-20 NBA season in particular. In addition to betting on the champion, you can make a bet whether the winner will be from California or not. You can get even more dangerous by narrowing the area and betting on whether the champion will hail from Los Angeles, betting on the Lakers or Clippers winning.
In both the WNBA and NCAA, you can bet on the championship winners for each respective league.
The number of leagues on display for soccer is quite impressive for America. If you are a soccer fanatic and love to bet outside just the top leagues, then Borgata has you covered. As well as four out of the top five leagues (only Italy’s Serie A is missing), the Borgata soccer line also has bets on many other countries’ top leagues such as Belgium’s Jupiler League, Brazil’s Serie A and the Dutch Eredivisie. Ironically, America’s own MLS is not one of the featured categories on display.
In addition to betting on individual games in the featured league you can also bet on the league winners from each league including more than just the featured (Italian Serie A and MLS are there). For featured leagues on individual games you can bet on win/loss, totals or and bets with a handicap. This is even more impressive when you realize the amount of games they cover with their featured leagues.
The soccer betting category also features main European tournaments such as the UEFA Super Cup where you can make the same bets as on individual games (totals, handicap, win/loss).
