I used Bovada for 3 years before leaving for 5Dimes. Bovada is really weak when it comes to betting options like ML bets and parlays. They also release their lines really late so it's impossible to get a jump on early lines before they settle on a sharper number. Some people have complained that it's hard to get money out of 5Dimes, I have yet to try so I can't comment on that. Depositing was pretty easy.

Thank you sir! One last question, do you have any problems with withdrawing your winnings?

I've been using 5dimes for a couple years now. Never had a problem with withdrawing my winnings. Only problem I've had with 5dimes is they've hacked every credit card I've used and made illegal purchases so I no longer deposit using credit cards. I deposit using Bitcoins.

5Dimes has a lot of options, but that douchebag owner, Tony, will steal your money eventually. Bank on it.

Yeah anyone have any suggestions? One that releases lines early and won't eventually steal your money would be preferred

I've had a few problems withdrawing money at 5 dimes.  The most recent occurred in 2014-15.  I hit a couple decent-sized bets and built my account up to around $4,000.  When I tried to withdraw, they said I could only take out a max of $1,000.  Didn't give any specific reason why - some BS like "your largest withdrawal to date has only been $800".  Eventually, after placing a couple more bets and waiting a few months I was able to withdraw another $1,000.  Then another $1,000 a few months later.  Lost the other $1,000    

On top of that, there are always numerous hoops to jump through when withdrawing - send a copy of your drivers license.  Ok, now send a copy of the credit card you used to make the deposit (if anything, this should be required at the time of deposit, not withdrawal).  Now provide a utility bill.  They make it extremely easy to deposit and damn near impossible to cash out.  

My opinion is that the large percentage of people using offshore accounts are down.  Gambling is difficult enough without having to deal with the additional stress and obstacles of wondering how or when you're going to collect your winnings.  

I no longer use offshore accounts.  The whole process seemed extremely shady.  Instead, I go to Vegas 3-4x times a year, and use a local.  My advice would be 1) don't bother, or 2) if you must use an offshore book, deposit a small amount of money to test the waters.    

Sorry to sound so negative, just trying to provide a realistic idea of what to expect.  FWIW, I've heard bitcoin has made the process easier, at least from a friend who uses bovada.

5dimes without question. Bovada is a joke. 


Late lines. Circled games. No FCS. No open parlay. No reduced juice. Deposits are fee'd at 5.9%! 

Joke

BOVADA?.......................
  * possibly the WORST for betting football / or any sport

If you want just ONE book.....and you want a ton of OPTIONS
  *ie > teasers / parlays.....5Dimes is BY FAR your best option

IF.....you are a more conservative gambler....mostly straight plays.....and / or you want higher limits +  less nonsense  ....then Bookmaker or Heritage 

You won't have any issues with 5Dimes....if you take the time to actually READ their policies / rules of wagering / deposits and w/d....etc
 
  **   use LIVE CHAT with any questions / concerns.....NEVER CALL them ha......you will most likely regret it

Bovada is far and away the easiest book to make money. Their props are so beatable. Most everyone I know has been limited from the book after winning 10-25k

I had credit card fraud through 5Dimes. I am certain someone hacked them and got my info (or worse). 
But as far as the professionalism of the book and betting options there is none better than 5 Dimes.

second this ........the options at 5dimes are second to none.....only problem is they hack your CC even when it gets declined.....and to Scals point, I'm sure they now have and have sold all my info to someone else.

Move to Canada and bet at Pinnacle if you plan on doing this professionally.

To all my Covers Brothers! Thank you very much. A lot of y'all have way more experience than I do with this stuff and something just didn't feel right about Bovada but I had heard a lot of about CC fraud from 5dimes. I'm going to scope out all of these this afternoon now that I've got a few options. 

Again, genuinely appreciate y'all's help/input/advice see you this CFB season - less than 40 days away now

why are you using credit cards?.......no cash I reckon.........?

Wanna load 1K?.....get a PRE-PAID card....like Wal Mart or whatever....(make sure they allow 'this type' of transaction) < bank at one did said NO..........
    *     >>  .load it with $1005 or so.........NO ISSUES

Care to make this as anonymous as possible?.....< if you know what I mean...........

BITCOIN.......KEEP YOUR BANK ACCOUNT......outta the deal
  *use cash.....it'll cost you on the return....but is faster / less chance for issues....find a good bitcoin ATM maybe.....
 
 $$$    get a hardware wallet.....like 
Ledger Nano S....or Trezor.....software like Blockchain is ok but not as PRIVATE.........(with hardware......you're BANK ACCOUNT is essentially......in your POCKET....<  not bad)

**  if you use an ATM......it goes directly to your wallet.....if you use an exchange .....TRANSFER it IMMEDIATELY....to your separate wallet 

******   as you may know.....give yourself some time to hit it when LOW......you may check Monday it's 2500...hellll by Wed it might be 2000 
  * I was looking to hit it under 2K.....little ETH Classic as well.....a pitcher of margaritas later it was 2150 wtf.................

The books I used so far

Bovada
5Dimes
hrwager
betdsi
betonline
bookmaker

best one is 5dimes by far. lowest juice, with live options now, best live in play options etc

2nd best is I'd say bookmaker or betdsi, both are owned by same group. although they keep juice high, they are still ok

hrwager is also solid, they gave 200% bonus first time

stay away from betonline

Does anyone know if these sites have a "cap"? Meaning lets say you deposit 5k (I wish) and then turn it into 15k (I really wish), will the site put a so-to-speak cap on how much you can win and/or hold in your account? Honestly more curious than anything because it's hard to trust sights but I trust my covers bros.
 Any input would be greatly appreciated
