Bovada.lv offers a mobile sportsbook available for Apple iPhone, iPad, Android, Samsung, and all internet enabled mobile devices. If they don’t have an app specific for your device, you can use the generic app which works well on any type of smartphone or tablet. The mobile casino (free and real money games) recently opened for business as well, but mobile poker is not yet available. For more information about the mobile casino, games, and bonuses, please scroll down this page.

Formerly known as Bodog (rebranded as Bovada for U.S. customers), Bovada was established in 1994, making them one of the oldest online sportsbooks. They accept Visa credit & debit cards – a deposit option that generally takes 2-4 minutes to complete. Other deposit options are available as well, but Visa is the easiest. Also, they seem to have the highest deposit success-rate of all U.S. sportsbooks, giving handicappers another good reason to bet here.

Bovada has a reputation for being one of the few online sportsbooks that bettors can always trust. Like every U.S. online sportsbook, Bovada has occasional issues with deposits & withdrawals – but not because they’re trying to stop you from depositing or because they want to keep your money. They may have to jump through a few hoops, but they always get customers paid.

They offer betting for all of the most popular US sports, plus all major international sports. They have a great live betting platform, possibly the best available for U.S. residents. In recent months, Bovada has been adding more & more games for live betting, and more bets per game as well.

For the most common types of bets, the vig at Bovada is standard for the industry. For example, a bet on an NFL or NBA point spread will have a 10% vig, like almost everywhere else. The same can be said for NFL or NBA over/under (game total) bets. So, for most bets that people want to make, the vig is right where it should be. Bovada also offers dime lines for MLB, and a few other sports as well.

With that said, the vig on money lines & prop bets at Bovada is typically higher than other sites. Although the best money lines can be found here from time to time, that’s not usually the case – so we encourage bettors to shop around.

Bovada also posts many of their lines very late. For example, NFL, NCAA, NBA point spreads are posted early, but money lines and over/under odds usually don’t get posted until 24-48 hours before game time. Although late value can be found at Bovada, this makes it more difficult (or impossible) to find early value.

Sports Betting Apps

The Bovada mobile sportsbook is very easy to use, possibly the cleanest design of any mobile betting apps. Text and buttons are large & easy to use, and placing a bet takes a matter of seconds. There are no flashing banners, confusing navigation, or anything else to distract us. When betting from a mobile device (especially on a phone), this is exactly what we’re asking for.

There is literally nothing else to explain, as the betting apps are so well designed that anyone can use them without prior information.

Account & Funds Security

The main reason Bovada gets our #1 ranking for American customers is because this is a book they can trust. There is nothing a sportsbook can do that is more important than keeping our accounts and funds safe, and this is never an issue at Bovada.

If Bovada is having problems cashing you out, give it a little time. You can feel secure in the fact that this is one of the good books, and they will get your money to you.
