I wanted to know everyone's impression of bovada. I have been using it but it seems like they have limited lines, this is especially evident in totals to bet on.

Am I wasting my time on said site?

use them occasionally,,like the teaser plays  3-team 8pt @ -110,have hit quite a few of those. They don't open the lines early though,and yes,not much for (ml) plays or totals.

Not a good site. Payouts take forever. Lines are not updated quick enough. I would reccomend finding a local book who have their own site.

Yeah I use bodog and it annoys me that they dont have ML for all games. Also, late lines. (Usually 12pm est) is when they drop.

Lose value for sure.

I requested BOVADA/BODOG to close my account before. Here's why:

1. Their lines shows up late. They don't have lines for every game. No moneylines on most games. They are not reliable to bet on due to not having lines available on time, or not at all.

2. Their credit card deposit sucks! They charge you fees to deposit using credit card and they don't reimburse you.

3. Their PAYOUT is worse!. The fastest payout option is western union payout but you can only use it if you deposited using western union also! So if you used credit card to deposit, you will not have this option. You will have to wait 1 month for your check payout! So many sites out there that will let you use money transfer option regardless of which deposit option you choose. 

4. Their Western union fees are outrageous! There's a certain amount of payout that Bovada charges $150 and 5dimes charges $95 for the same amount of payout. 

5. They removed the cash comp on casino losses! They changed it to something stupid I cannot even remember how anymore but check out their casino rebate program, it's so stupid and doesn't make any sense. 

So if I were you, you should probably think of a different bet site. I for one used to be a BODOG loyal member but after realizing how bad their site/programs are, I finally switched to a much much better site.

I was in the same boat as you last year. I switched to 5dimes in May 2012...best move I ever made.
