Mobile Sports Betting: Which Sportsbooks Are Best?

You can bet on sports using your cell phone

Do you like betting on sports but find you don’t have always have time to sit down at a computer and place your bets?

Mobile sports betting is for you.

Using your smart phone (like a BlackBerry or IPhone), you can make your bets before the big game or even during the game. Mobile sports betting is great for when you’re on the train ride home from work and want to make a few bets, when you’re out at a bar watching the game and want to bet on the halftime spread, or when you want to quickly and discreetly make a bet without having your girlfriend or wife nagging you.

Most offshore sportsbooks are making it easy for you to do mobile sports betting. Here’s a breakdown of which ones on our recommended list of sportsbooks are good for mobile sports betting, and which ones aren’t so good to use if you like doing a lot of mobile sports betting.

Excellent for mobile sports betting

BetCRIS, JustBet, bet365 and Legends are your top options if you expect to do a lot of mobile sports betting.

BetCRIS and JustBet actually have mobile applications you can download to your smart phone for mobile sports betting. The applications are very simple to navigate, allowing you to place your bet quickly.

Bet365 and Legends also have sites specifically built for mobile sports bettors. The bet365 mobile sports betting site has hardly any bells and whistles, but that makes it very simple to navigate through. The Legends mobile sports betting site is also very user friendly, allowing you to place your bet quickly.

Good for mobile sports betting

Many sportsbooks have websites that you can access easily with a typical browser on your phone. They’re not designed for mobile sports betting, but you can use them just the same. It might just take you a little longer to navigate through the site and place your bet.

Pinnacle, The Greek, Bet Jamaica, 5Dimes, Skybook, Wagerchief and Sports Interaction are all sportsbooks that I have logged into and made wagers using the Opera Mini browser on my mobile phone.

Not good for mobile sports betting

Bodog is the only sportsbook on our recommended list that isn’t a good option for mobile sports betting, at least for now. Bodog’s website is best viewed with Internet Explorer, a browser that most mobile phones don’t use. Bodog is apparently working on a mobile sports betting site, much like the mobile casino betting site it already has.
