To find the right sportsbook for sports betting, we spent six months and hundreds of hours of assessing different books. Here, we will focus on two sportsbooks and compare BetDSI vs PointsBet.

Our comparison begins with the regulation status of each broker. PointsBet is a legal US sportsbook, while BetDSI is an offshore sportsbook. Regulation aside, let's look at how each sportsbook ranks in odds offered. To compile an odds ranking, we analyzed odds from thousands of games for total, spread, and moneyline bets. PointsBet received a rating of N/A stars over BetDSI 's 2.00 stars.

Now let's examine how many sports each book accepts bets on. BetDSI takes bets on 19 sports while PointsBet takes bets on16 sports, a difference of 3 sports. Next, we can compare some general features offered and educational content catered towards first-time bettors. For features, we will look at whether the book offers early cashouts, a match tracker when live betting, and PayPal deposits and withdrawals. PointsBet offers the early cash out feature while BetDSI does not. Neither offers a live match tracker. Neither offers PayPal. Education is also great for individuals new to sports betting, who may need reminders on betting types. Both BetDSI and PointsBet offer education explaining how to bet.

Overall, between BetDSI and PointsBet, PointsBet is the winner.
