Bet comparison: which site has the best odds?

by our site | 03/21/2018

Last week appeared another legalized bookmaker in United States, NossaAposta.

It seems to us a good opportunity to make a comparison between the odds offered by the 5 licensed sites.

For those who are not aware, the licensed companies to operate online betting are (and in order of obtaining the currently license) the following:

In order to have as fair a sample as possible, we have chosen all the USA League games of the next round, exceUS Belenenses - Porto which takes place only on Monday, April 2nd, and therefore is not available for betting at some bookmakers.

We will simulate simple bets of 20 euros on all the favorites of the eight games and calculate the return in percentage, in case of success.


Being Betlcic the first house with USA license, and also the most experienced in international terms, are the odds the best among all sites?

As you can see in the image above, the favorites of these games are the home teams, with the exceUSion of Braga - Sporting, a game in which the lions have the lowest odds.

If we then place at $20 bet on each of the favorites (and they win), we get the following return:

39.00 + 37.00 + 36.40 + 40.00 + 48.00 + 41.00 + 23.40 + 48.00 = 312.80 Euro, 

which corresponds to a net profit of 152.80 Euro, that is, a return of investment of 95.5% 


probably the bet.US is the most popular among the USA sports sites, much because of the investment in advertising.

Bet comparison: which site has the best odds?
But do the odds of justice to the popularity?

Using the same method we have already applied to Betclic, we would have the following returns for a bet of 20 Euros on each of the favorites

36.60 + 34.80 + 34.80 + 37.20 + 37.20 + 44.00 + 23.40 + 44.00 = 292.00 Euros 

corresponding to a profit of 132.00 Euro, that is, 82.50% return

ESC Online

Esc Online has a particular characteristic that makes the somewhat unfair: it presents lower odds for single bets and benefits the bettors of multiple. But will the result be much lower than the competition?

As you can see in the image, the odds presented are only for multiple. If you place single bets you will get lower odds (exceUS for very short odds). We clicked on each of the choices and got the following odds:

Birds: 1.76; Maritime: 1.66; River Ave: 1.64; Boavista: 1.82; Steps: 2.14; Portimonense: 1.79; Benfica: 1.18; Sporting: 2.19

Applying the $20 bet to each of the above favorites, we have:

35.20 + 33.20 + 32.80 + 36.40 + 42.80 + 35.80 + 23.60 + 43.80 = 283.60 Euro, 

which corresponds to a profit of $123.60, that is, 77.25% return.

Casino United States

One of the lesser known propositions for USA bettors, Casino United States has been growing a lot in recent months, but have the odds also grown?

Our bets of 20 euros would then pay out:

38.20 + 36.60 + 36.00 + 40.00 + 48.00 + 40.00 + 23.40 + 47.60 = 309.80 Euros

Which corresponds to a 149.80 Euros profit now 93% return.62%

Our Bet

Finally the newest sports betting site in United States, NossaAposta. Belonging to Cofina group, promises to shake up the market. Will it really be like this?

In this case, placing a $20 bet on each of the favorites, we will have:

35.20 + 33.20 + 33.20 + 36.00 + 36.00 + 42.00 + 23.00 + 42.00 = 280.60 Euros

That is, a profit of 120.60 Euros and return of investment of only 75.38% 

Comparison results:

Betclic is the big winner

Often "wronged" by the USA bettors, Betclic is the national bookmaker with the best odds for single bets on the USA League, working with margins close to 8% profit, which taking into account the huge burden of taxes that fall on online gambling, is remarkable.

Casino United States near the top

One of the lesser known brands to the national public, Casino United States closely follows Betclic, with an average house margin close to 10%.

bet.en disappoints a lot

For those who expected to see the bet.en on top of this comparison, the result is probably a disappointment. We estimate that the average profit margin of the brand is around 18%, at least in these games of the USA League. Not being an aberration, it is far from what we expect from a competitive bookmaker.

ESC Online has poor odds, but "understandable

ESC Online's OUSi-Ods conceUS makes this site not very recommended for single bets. This is because there is a big benefit to multiple bettors. We estimate the house edge for single bets to be between 18% and 19%, which is also not far behind bet.en

OurBetting will have to improve a lot to compete with the others

The big disappointment of this test is the newest national bookmaker, Our Bet. If the brand's goal is to compete on equal terms with other betting sites, it will have to increase the odds a lot. According to our calculations, the brand is working with a margin very close to 25%, a value that, even taking into all the tax burden, is unacceUSable and almost "indecent" for any bettor.

To finish, we remind you that this analysis was made in a totally unbiased way, without considering any other league or any other sport. There may be differences in the way certain bookmakers approaches certain markets, which may (or may not) modify the result of the test if we include other choices.

In any case, we think that the USA League is by far the most interesting market in United States, hence our choice.

Anyway, the odds are just one of the features that make the site interesting for any bettor. There may be other qualities, such as payouts and customer service, that make a particular company your favorite, even if it offers weaker odds.

good luck!
