We assessed spread, moneyline, and total odds to provide a single star rating for odds. BetOnline is a better option with a 4.50 star rating over Bovada's 2.00 star rating.

The number of sports offered is certainly at the top of the list, and BetOnline trails Bovada by 6 total sports offered, with Bovada offering 29 and BetOnline offering 23. Looking at features, early cash outs, live match tracking and the option to bank with PayPal are all popular amongst bettors.
