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 William Hill.

First, we will compare whether or not each sportsbook is regulated by a US governing body PointsBet alongside William Hill are part of the legal US market. 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's score is N/A stars versus William Hill's 4.00 stars.

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. PointsBet and William Hill both have educational pages explaining the basics of sports betting. Next, comparing the total number of sports offered, William Hill trails PointsBet by 6 total sports offered, with PointsBet offering 16 and William Hill offering 10. 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 PointsBet offers the early cash out feature while William Hill does not. Neither PointsBet and William Hill offer a live match tracker for live betting. Neither offers PayPal.

Overall, between PointsBet and William Hill, PointsBet is the winner.
