Pros

  • Decent selection of sports to bet on
  • Good daily boost bets
  • New promo offered every Monday for betting

Cons

  • Clunky and old design, feels like betting in an office and not online
  • Underwhelming live scoreboard

Sports selection — normal

We have collected the average margin size for the most popular sports that are featured on Borgata's Sportsbook. We used a variety of games and leagues for each sport to find an accurate average. 

Soccer

The average from all leagues and games that we looked at was 4.989, which places this sport in the good category. 

For top leagues in the sport of soccer, we have taken averages from the English Premier League, Spain's La Liga and the Dutch Eredivisie. The margins from these leagues averaged out at 5.208. This average is from the markets on the win, draw or loss as well as on the total number of goals.

For the MLS, the averages sat at 4.15. We took the averages from three games and on markets for win, draw and loss and also on the over/under for total goals. For the Swedish Allsvenskan, the margins were not noticeably different from the top leagues averaging at 5.61,. The same markets were used here. 


Betting options — normal

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

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

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.


Soccer

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).

Live — normal

Borgata’s sportsbook features a Live Betting section at the top next to the boosted bets and home tabs. The website does not feature live streaming as of now, but instead has a live scoreboard for each current match. However, the live scoreboard for the matches unfortunately leaves much to be desired. For example, with tennis, you will not be fully aware of what is happening in the match, you will only be shown the score of each previous set as well as the current.

This unfortunately leaves much to be desired when attempting to bet live on a sport while staying on the website where you made the bet. It would be advised to not rely on the Borgata’s scoreboard as a guide to making live bets, but rather to find a live stream, Twitter updates or some other medium to help you know when to quickly pull the trigger on a live bet. 

Scores and statistics are updated quickly, as well as the odds for each bet available. The odds updating is very clear as you will see either a blinking green up arrow or a blinking red down arrow appear in the box with the odds. These will appear when the odds are being raised (green) or lowered (red). Each time this happens the arrows will stay in the box for a few moments until fading away. 

The Live section as a whole is easy enough to understand. On the left there is a text box with tabs of all the sports taking place at the time. You can switch through the tabs easily from sport to sport. For each sport there will be a drop-down arrow showing all the live games for that sport. Simply clicking on the specific game you want to bet on will bring the live scoreboard and all of the associated bets in the front and center of the screen.

About the bookmaker

Borgata has quickly risen from its start in 2003 to become Atlantic City’s most profitable casino. The casino is something of an Atlantic City landmark and in 2016 was bought by MGM International for $900 million ensuring the casino had indeed become a force to be reckoned with in both popularity and profit. Although they specialize in live music and gaming, Borgata is also familiar sports as the resort often hosts MMA and boxing matches in the event center. The company, however, did not stop there. Borgata was also the first casino to offer sports betting in house after its legalization in New Jersey in 2018. 

In the summer of 2019, an $11 million permanent sportsbook was also launched enhancing the company’s stake in New Jersey sports betting.  Not waiting too long to expand, in May 2019, the Atlantic City casino decided to offer online sports betting in addition to in-house betting launching the Borgata Sports App for Apple and Android. The app joins the already existing Borgata Poker and Borgata Casino apps. The app features the exact same lines, odds and wagers as the casino’s Race and Sports Book. Borgata also posts lines and odds every game for the top four sports.
