After six months and hundreds of hours of researching different sportsbooks, the BettingBuck.com team collected thousands of data points. To focus on two sportsbooks, we will now compare PointsBet vs SugarHouse.

First, we will compare whether or not each sportsbook is regulated by a US governing body PointsBet and SugarHouse are legal sportsbooks that are regulated in the United States. Now, we can compare the odds between each sportsbook. Odds, or the vig, is what the sportsbook charges you to place your bet. To compile rankings, we examined odds for spread, moneyline, and total markets for seven different leagues, covering over 100 games for each league. PointsBet is a better option with a N/A star rating over SugarHouse's 2.50 star rating.

Odds aside, we can now compare educational features. Bettors new to sports betting will want high-quality education informing them of what different betting markets are available and how to bet them. Both PointsBet and SugarHouse offer education explaining how to bet. Next, comparing the total number of sports offered, SugarHouse takes bets on 18 sports while PointsBet takes bets on16 sports, a difference of 2 sports. Diving into poplar features, some bettors desire the ability to cash in tickets early, a live match tracker that updates ball position when live betting, and banking with PayPal Both PointsBet and SugarHouse offer the early cash out feature. SugarHouse makes a live match tracker available to clients, while PointsBet does not. Neither offers PayPal.

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