The BettingBuck.com team spent months and hundreds of hours assessing different sportsbooks for betting on sports online in the US. In total, 150 individual variables were assessed. For this review, we will compare 5Dimes vs FanDuel (DFS).

To start this comparison, first, we will look at the regulation status of each sportsbook. Neither is legal in the US. Next, let's take a look at the odds offered by each book. It's important to note that data points from over 1,400 games across 17 sportsbooks was collected. We assessed spread, moneyline, and total odds to provide a single star rating for odds. 5Dimes is a better option with a 5.00 star rating over FanDuel (DFS)'s 4.00 star rating.

Odds aside, we can now turn our focus to what types of bets and features are available to bettors. The number of sports offered is certainly at the top of the list, and 5Dimes boasts an offering of 24 available sports compared to FanDuel (DFS)'s 7 available sports. Looking at features, early cash outs, live match tracking and the option to bank with PayPal are all popular amongst bettors. Early cash outs are when a sportsbook allows bettors to cash in a ticket before the game ends to secure a win or minimize a loss. Neither offers the early cash out feature. Neither offers a live match tracker. FanDuel (DFS) offers PayPal, 5Dimes doesn't. Finally, having access to education is always important for first-time bettors. 5Dimes and FanDuel (DFS) both have educational pages explaining the basics of sports betting.

Overall, between 5Dimes and FanDuel (DFS), 5Dimes is the winner.
