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 BetMGM vs PointsBet.

Our comparison begins with the regulation status of each broker. BetMGM and PointsBet are legal sportsbooks that are regulated in the United States. 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 4.50 stars over BetMGM's 2.50 stars.

Now let's examine how many sports each book accepts bets on. BetMGM trails PointsBet by 3 total sports offered, with PointsBet offering 16 and BetMGM offering 13. 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 makes early cash outs available to bettors, while BetMGM does not. BetMGM makes a live match tracker available to clients, while PointsBet does not. Neither offers PayPal. Education is also great for individuals new to sports betting, who may need reminders on betting types. PointsBet describes how to place bets , BetMGM doesn't.

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