Golden Nugget vs BetMGM 2021

Is BetMGM better than Golden Nugget? After scoring sportsbooks on over 100 different variables, Golden Nugget is better than BetMGM. Golden Nugget is a good online casino and sports betting combination. While the odds and bet variety are competitive, I found the mobile app and selection of bonuses were too focused on casino games to recommend Golden Nugget as a primary sports betting option.
