Sports selection — normal

We scoured the BetAmerica Sportsbook in order to find the average margins given on games in the top sports and leagues. 

Soccer

There are many different soccer leagues featured on BetAmerica's site. The total margin average for soccer was at 7.426. This number is placed towards the bottom of the normal category on Legalbet.com. 

For games in the MLS, the margin average was 6.404. In top leagues like the English Premier League and Spain's La Liga. Other various leagues had a much higher margin with the average at 10.687. 

The markets looked at to determine the margins were the result as well as the over/under on total number of goals. 

Tennis

There were multiple tennis tournaments ongoing when we looked for the average margins. The total average for all the tournaments looked at was 5.229, which puts the sport high up in the normal category on Legalbet.com.

For the Men's tournament M15 Antalya, the average margins were at 5.348. In the Australian Open WC Men we found average margins of 5.136. The last tournament looked at was the ITF W15 Monastir, where we found average margins of 5.203. 

The range from all of the individual games was from 4.708 up to 5.729. The market used to determine averages was the result. 

Hockey

There were multiple leagues available for hockey as well. The total average for all margins in the sport was at 5.122. 

For the NHL, the margins were at 4.868. In the Swedish SHL, the average margins were held at 5.28, and in the Finnish SM Liga, 5.219. 

For each of the games we looked at both the results market as well as the over/under market on the total number of goals. The averages for individual games ranged from 4.588 up to 5.351. 

Basketball

We looked at a few of the top basketball leagues available on BetAmerica. The total average margin for all of the games and leagues was 4.828. 

The NBA had average margins of 4.857, with the EuroLeague clocking in at 4.878. The last league looked at was the NCAA Mens Basketball League, which had average margins at 4.748. 

The range from all of the individual games went from 4.623 up to 5.032. The markets looked at were the same for all of the games, including the result and the over/under on total number of points scored. 

You can see all sportsbook margins in our Odds Rating to find out who has the lowest!

Betting options — good

The BetAmerica sportsbook features all of the main sports that you would expect to find, with a few less popular sports also in the mix. In total, you can bet on 14 different sports.

The main leagues for American sports can all be found here with the exception of the NBA. However, there are plans in the future to add this league as well.

In addition to the main American sports, you can find Aussie rules football or Rugby, as well as many bets available for Cricket.

Cycling, Motor sports and MMA matches are also featured on the site. The main highlights of the sportsbook are the availability of leagues in both Soccer and Tennis.

You can find a long list covering many lesser known leagues for these sports in addition to the most popular ones. There is also a section featured called Super Odds where they will display random wagers with inflated odds to bet on.

These can pop up in any of the website’s sports and include odds that can be more than +800. These odds update quickly and feature bets like Man City to win Premier League and Champions League and Clemson/Alabama to meet in the NCAA football championship.

Baseball

The MLB is the only league available for betting on in the baseball section. Both game odds as well as future bets are included.

For a typical baseball game, you can expect to find around 50 markets to bet on. These include the main bets on the moneyline, totals and with a handicap.

However, the options for these main bets can be expanded. For example, for bets with a handicap you can choose whether a team will win by one, two, three or by four or more runs all with varying odds.

You can be even more specific and choose for a team to win from a range starting at -1.5 all the way to +5.5. For totals bets, you also have different options such as run totals over/under eight to over/under 11.5.

There are also bets available on whether there will be extra innings, the total of runs by innings and on who the first team to score will be.

Another bonus is that BetAmerica features player bets as well specific to each game. This includes total strikeouts for the pitchers, total ERA, and total bases and home runs for selected players.

In the futures section you can bet on which team will win the World Series, all of the division winners and on some individual awards. These include both the American and National League MVP winner and the American League Cy Young winner.

Tennis

The number of leagues available to bet on for tennis is extraordinary for a sportsbook. An extremely popular sport worldwide, you can find almost any league you are looking for no matter the country.

You can find bets for tournaments such as ITF 60 Warsaw, WTA Toronto and ITF Chiswick among many others. The main tournaments such as the French, US and Australian Opens are also offered.

Bets for individual matches include the moneyline and over/under bets of course. However, you can also find offers on the exact score of a set, point winners and whether a game will be to deuce or not. Over/ under bets are available by the set and game, as well as on the total score.

On the tournaments displayed, you can make future bets on the eventual winners. There are also handicap bets offered for some games which usually include -.5 or +.5 for the athletes. The real action for tennis is within the live aspect of betting.

When the game is being played more bets are offered then before the matches. There is no set number of bets to expect for individual matches, because they vary drastically for each.

A good rule of thumb would be to expect a higher number on the more prolific competitions and less on the smaller ones. Some competitions can have as little as one bet offered whereas others can boast over 30.

Soccer

Like tennis, soccer is a very popular worldwide sport that showcases a following in just about every country. Accordingly, BetAmerica offers a massive collection of leagues and tournaments for the player to choose from.

There are five main leagues and they are all of course offered but there are many smaller leagues as well. For example, on the BetAmerica sportsbook you can find bets on Ireland’s league and multiple leagues from Scotland.

Switzerland, Cyprus and Finland also all have their leagues featured among others. The range of tournaments is equally as impressive as you can find major tournaments such as the Champions League and the World Cup but can also find tournaments that pop up in specific countries.

And not just the FA cup or the Copa Del Ray, but also tournaments like Ireland’s FAI cup for instance. Bets on individual games can range in numbers not depending on any one factor. However, for some games you can find over 120 different markets to bet on.

This obviously includes a very wide range of bets as well as Asian odds. The main bets are all there but other than those you can bet on just about anything.

Some of the more interesting markets included are to score/miss a penalty, for one of the teams to win from behind, and for an own goal to occur. All of the bets offered are available in the first half, second half or for the total game. For the tournaments you can bet on which team will lift the trophy at the end.

Live — good

The live section on display at BetAmerica is up there with the best. The sportsbook quite obviously takes a lot of pride in its live section.

All of the sports featured on the site are available to bet on live as well. The Live Schedule shows which games will be played in order of time and separated by sport.

In the center the list of games is not separated by sport but rather by which time they will be played, however you can click on a scroll down tab and select which sport you want to be displayed.

You can also change the date at the top and the long list will display all of the events scheduled for that day. There is also a results tab where you can select the sport and time frame (last 24 hours, 48, etc.) and the website will display all of the event results within that time frame.

These results are in alphabetical order separated by league/ tournament. 

However, the real value is in the Event View tab. Here you can select a specific event and the screen will instantly center all around your choice. At the top there will be a banner displaying all of the teams currently playing, the time in game and the score.

Down the center of the screen below the banner, you can view all of the available bets for the current event. The odds on these events change quickly and will be signified by a red or green arrow in the corner of the box containing the offer.

On the right side of the screen is the MatchTracker. This is the next best thing to live streaming which is unfortunately not available on the site. The tracker features updating statistics from the game for example number of corners, yellow cards and injuries for a soccer game.

The live screen shows the field and where the ball is on the field at the time. This is incredible accurate as the ball will move with every pass and shot. Captions will also appear commenting what is happening. For example, 'free kick Juventus' will appear above the ball.

A live broadcast of the game is still recommended, but you could make live bets confidently with this live section’s setup.
