So I'm looking at making some NFL Draft prop bets in the next couple of days. I was wondering which books were most reliable as far as getting money both on the book and off it. I'm in Mexico now, if that helps or makes a difference.

In US searching for NBA finals MVP numbers. Betfair is the only I've seen. Bovada had it at least as early as June 3rd last year but haven't seen it there yet.

Are there any brokers for Betfair (act as an intermediary to place bets) that:

1. Allow bets from the U.S (with or without VPN)
2. Take BTC deposits, p2p trades, or other online deposit method
3. Are at least somewhat trustworthy?

Or any other way to access Betfair markets, but I assume either a broker or directly are the only choices.

Hey guys,

I was just wondering what you all think is the best site for US online bettors? I currently bet online at Betonline, and am building my roll, so I haven't attempted a cashout yet (but have heard they're solid). Any information from experienced persons is great, and I thank you all in advance!

Also, has anyone ever had a problem living in NY and betting online?

Thanks guys!

Just tried to get Pinnacle sports. Too bad they won't accept US people.

Can hardly believe that Hillary Clinton is getting -282 odds to win the election. Every other candidate is at +244. I don't think Hillary is going to win. Any other websites that offer political lines? I can't find one on BetOnline.

I'm going to try out wwmm's method posted. Thank you, and I hope it works!

I have a pending payout from 5dimes....it isn't late yet but will post again when i get it. I notice this from sportsbettingsites.org....

*5Dimes Rating on Hold – 5Dimes was rated A when on 30 March 2016 we temporarily removed them from our rating guide. This is the date we noticed NETELLER and Skrill absent from the cashier of multiple non-U.S player accounts. This follows a number of regulatory/legal news reports in Costa Rica (where they are based), Malta, and the United States that mention their company. They are still fully operational and SBS has NOT received any payout complaints. There is however an ongoing investigation in Costa Rica involving money laundering. To our knowledge no charges have been filed. For now we encourage players to do their own due diligence before depositing. SBS will either 1. re-add them to our rating guide, or 2. post a detailed article on this topic by May 2016.

Here is an article on the probe:

On that note, going to repeat my request from earlier if someone knows a good way to access Betfair markets from the U.S. (broker service or otherwise), preferably with bitcoin deposits.

Guess if I were desperate, I could create an account, use a vpn, pretend i live in another country and set up there if I win big? Probably too lazy to do that though, and not sure I could use bitcoin. Also depends at what point they ask for verification info.

@CarbonIsTheNutLow

Maybe the government makes you jump through hoops on purpose, because US players tend to be losing players. Canadian players seem to be worse, but US players are only slightly better. That means money ends up leaving the country going to Europe and Russia rather than coming in. I'm not an economy expert, but it seems like an interesting theory. I've also heard stuff about money laundering and that is a factor as well.

If your theory stands, that Europe and Russia players tend to be winning players, then the betting houses prohibiting US players would shut down soon because money go to winning players rather than betting houses, and their customers would be killed fast.

Good news in that I got my check today for ~5k, just need to deposit it and make sure it clears! If I have any issues with it clearing i'll post again. Bottom line is don't deposit too much if u want to play with 5dimes till more clarity. Their customer service and payout times (within 10 business days) seem to still be working well as of now.

Does anyone know exactly why 5dimes don't have skrill/neteller for a while already? I spoke to them last time and they said it will be a while till skrill/neteller comes back but they don't know when.

Merchants can lose their skrill/neteller accounts over ratio of payouts to deposits. They want merchants that take a lot more in than they pay out. They also pay a big fee if this is out of line, but loosing the account is a bigger issue. That's a potential reason that during a time there is a run on bank they might just pull it on own. But more likely issue is that these ewallets tend to freeze/close accounts that could be subject to forfeiture and don't deal with indicted companies etc.

5Dimes had the Amazon issue, and the money laundering press recently so might just have been shutdown. When shutdown the bookies can get around it restructuring. They had a recent attempt to do so blocked with the other company determined ineligible for license.

I don't know exact reason, but is a lot going on with them now. As long as bitcoin payments keep coming fast I think they are fine. All bets off of course if in the unlikely chance anyone ends up in cuffs. I think they are probably fine though, we just have to deal with no NETELLER/Skrill for a while.

Just want to inform people this against TOS. One of dumb horses I coached insisted on doing this. They recently had closed his account for a week and took $1700 or something of his 5k balance and he is banned from all bonuses including refer a friend.

So yeah.

Appears Nitro is now dealing 15 cent lines in MLB. Going down the ****ter like every other book before it. Makes me wonder if they are in trouble financially.

What sites offer pitcher props? Specifically over/under K props. Heritage would let me get a nickel down on them last year and now they don't offer them this year. I know Bovada offers them but at low limits I believe. But apparently Bovada doesn't take players in Maryland. Am I correct on that?

Anybody know of which local pph's offer them?

Betonline offers them at $200 limits with rebets.

Bovada has them at $500 limits for a week. Dunno about Maryland.
