BetAmerica vs BetMGM 2021

Is BetAmerica better than BetMGM? After scoring sportsbooks on over 100 different variables, BetAmerica is better than BetMGM. While its history as a horse racing site is impressive, when it comes to sports betting BetAmerica has room for improvement. Although the BetAmerica mobile app is easy to use, I found the education, bonuses for new customers, and variety of bets to be underwhelming.
