  • Good promotions

Cons

  • Website is slow
  • Lackluster selection of sports
  • Few customer supports options

Sports selection — normal

The selection of sports on the FOX Bet website is nothing to write home about. FOX Bet currently has 13 sports available to bet on. Most of the sports displayed are generally geared towards an American audience. Cricket and the Grand Prix being the exceptions. However, the most popular among Americans are offered. This includes bets on the top four leagues the NBA, MLB, NHL and the NFL. Soccer, tennis and golf also have markets available for betting. The number of sports on FOX Bet is on the low end of a normal rating. With the two major giants working together, you would expect to see more sports on the site. The original Betstars New Jersey site featured 31 sports to choose from. Quite a bit different from the new spread. However, when it comes to sports that are already covered by FOX it starts to make a little more sense. FOX Bets has kept its sports in line with its coverage almost completely. Although, given the selection on Betstars original site, with more time we can expect to see a larger number of sports featured on the site.

Betting options — good

Football

The pride and joy of FOX Sports are its game day coverage of the NFL and NCAAF and the broadcasts of their games. Launching just in time for the new seasons for the sports, FOX Bet was well-prepared with the variety of markets in the sport. With FOX NFL Sunday already going strong since 1994, the company added the new show ‘Big Noon Halftime’ geared at NCAAF analysis in 2019. The markets for the NFL represent the amount of coverage it receives on FOX, the NCAAF not as much. For the NFL, depending on the game, you can expect to see up to 70 available types of bets. Though the average hovers around 50. They are also laid out in a professional and organised manner, with a tab representing a different category of bets. This is refreshing for a sportsbook to have instead of just laying out all bets under one section. The money line, totals and the spread are all featured at the top of the markets. A good number of prop bets include first TD scorer and anytime TD scorer. There are also a lot of players props as well. You can bet on yards touchdowns scored for quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers. Possibly the most exciting part of the football bets is the new #CustomBet section. These are basically parlays already put together by the FOX Bet site. For example, for the Green Bay Packers- Chicago Bears game, Jimmy Graham to have 100+ receiving yards + to score a TD was one of the featured customs. You can immediately tell that FOX Bet is placing most of its interest on the NFL, as the markets available for the NCAAF is quite poor. The average number of markets per game is only about eight. You can bet on the featured money line spread, and total points. Other than those, there is not much to talk about. You can make bets on who will be leading at halftime and which quarter will have the most points. You can also bet on whether or not there will be an overtime period. 


Baseball

FOX Sports covers 40 MLB games every season plus up to another 15 in the playoffs. However, the amount of wagers for the games is admittedly poor. The total amount of wagers for most games is only at 13. This is nothing special when compared to the other sportsbook markets. Given that the new FOX Bet sportsbook is still relatively new, there is plenty of time for more to come. Many of the extra markets are entered around the main three: money line, spread and the total runs. For the handicap and totals bets there are three different options all with varying odds. You can also bet on the total runs for each of the two teams playing. There is also a section that combines the run total with the winning team. For example, under 9.5 and a Chicago White Sox win. The odds for these bets are fairly decent and one could realistically pick any option with a good amount of confidence attached. Prop bets include betting on the possibility of extra innings, whether the total amount of runs scored will be odd or even, and win margins. You can predict whether a team will win by 1-2 runs, 3-4 or by more than four. FOX Bet is also one of the few sportsbooks to have available markets from the Japanese Nippon Pro Baseball leagues, both the Central and Pacific leagues. The markets for these are unsurprisingly fewer, but the main three are featured as well as some others depending on the game. With the sportsbook’s stages still in the beginning phases and given FOX’s coverage of the sport, we can realistically expect a larger number of markets to find its way here. 


Soccer

Although still not reaching a popular status in the States, FOX throughout the years has brought good coverage of the sport to America. There is obviously a love for the sport at the station, because its lineup is impressive for an American media outlet. It televises all 306 league games from the Bundesliga and 34 games from the MLS. A number of tournaments are also shown including the UEFA Champions League, Europa League and the World Cup. They also share the rights with ESPN to the USMNT games. And that is not even all of them. So it is no surprise seeing the impressive number of markets and leagues for soccer. You can find all of the main leagues here next to a lot of other countries leagues. Some of the countries featured are Japan, Portugal, Slovakia, Wales and Austria. There are no countries completely out of the ordinary, but the selection is still very good. Tournaments such as the Euro 2020, Champions League and International friendlies are there. You can bet on League Cups for many of the top leagues as well.  The number of markets for the games varies drastically depending on the league. You can find as little as around 10 markets for some of the smaller leagues like Iceland. However, on the main leagues you will consistently find over 100 markets available. In addition to the money line, there are many different options under the totals and handicap bets. They also do the same here that they do in baseball by combing the totals and the prediction of the winner or a draw. An unusually large number of markets is also entered around penalties. You can bet on whether a penalty will be awarded and to which team. Whether the penalty will be missed or scored and by which team. Although there are a couple of sportsbooks that feature more countries than FOX Bet does, when you combine it with the number of markets it makes for a very nice section of the site.

Live — good

Due to having one of the biggest media companies as part of the site, you would expect FOX Bet to have a very good live section and they do not disappoint. Under the In-game section you can find everything related to live betting on the site. On the page, you will have live games on the left of the screen separated by sport. There is also a lot of room on the right side that displays your bet slip. Once you click on a game, a live game screen will appear in the middle of the screen. Below this you can find all of the markets listed for the game with quickly updating odds. 

The live game screen is unlike any of the ones seen on Jersey sportsbooks. Although, it does not visibly track the ball or the players it is still very entertaining. It is actually a little reminiscent of a type of video game. The screen will display the field/court and give constant updates on what is happening. There is a game clock at the top and things like fouls, free kicks and scores warrant an immediate update. The number of statistics you can find is also very good. By clicking on different tabs on the game screen you can see the percentage of win probability for each team, average time the team has spent attacking, number of fouls and a timeline of all the events. 

No live streaming is available yet on the site. However, if you don’t have any other options, the game screen will serve as a good replacement for the real thing. This combined with the statistics available give you a good point of reference for the game while at the same time keeping a close eye on new and existing odds.

Bonuses

FOX has a bonus offering to match the player’s first deposit up to $100 + $20 signup bonus

There are a lot of good promotions offered on the FOX Bet sportsbook. The biggest ones are for new players as usual, but there are also different promotions for each day of the week. Just for signing up the new player will receive $20 free which is instantly available after the account is verified. Another bonus can be taken advantage of immediately after by depositing into your account. FOX has a bonus offering to match the player’s first deposit up to $100. The bonus money does need to be turned over 100% with a minimum odds of -200 in order to be withdrawn. As stated earlier there are also specialised bets for each day of the week featuring a FOX employee. A couple of the more interesting ones include Colin Cowherd’s Saturday bet. In this bet, if Cowherd goes 3-3 on his against-the-spread picks on college football, then standard three-team parlays get boosted odds for the day. Another interesting one includes Cousin Sal’s Thursday bet. In this promotion Sal creates his own custom bet and FOX Bet will come up with their own special odds to match it. If you and Sal both lose the bet, then you will receive up to $25 back in return. Unfortunately the return can only be collected on your first bet on this promotion.

About the bookmaker

FOX Sports and The Stars Group partnership came to fruition last week when the pair launched its sportsbook on August 3. The collaboration between the mega companies started in May with Fox’s purchase of nearly five percent of The Stars Group’s shares for $236 million. The 25-year deal allows for FOX to eventually purchase up to 50% of the online gaming company’s equity in the US market. The companies have history together as The Stars Group now owns Rupert Murdoch’s SkyBet.

The Stars Group has been a trusted name in the online gaming industry for a long time. Founded in 2001, it owns many successful online gaming platforms but is most well-known for its online poker sites. The list includes the popular PokerStars Championship. The company currently operates in 21 jurisdictions with countries in the European Union, Australia, North America and more. As of now the company has 4,500 employees and is headquartered in Toronto. 

FOX is a company that does not really need an introduction. For a long time before 21st Century FOX’s merger with Disney in 2019, the company was among the biggest in American entertainment. After the merger, FOX Corporation was formed and included former assets such as FOX News and FOX Sports. The company is run by Lachlan Murdoch and is headquartered in New York City. Without its regional networks, FOX Sports is strictly a nationwide broadcast. The network covers Bundesliga, MLS, the MLB, NCAA football and basketball and the USGA Championships, among others.
