Welcome to Predictem's sportsbook ratings page. Here you'll find a list of the top 10 sportsbooks on the web. These ratings have been compiled by industry insiders who have been in the online sports bettin industry since 1998! Rest assured that when you're wagering at a bookie on the Predictem top 10 list, you're playing with the best!
Every year, thousands of people take to the internet to look for a website to bet on sports. Unfortunately, many of them will sign up at online sports betting sites that they heard about through email marketing or search engines without having done their homework on the place they're sending their hard earned money to. The majority of sites are legit and will pay you your winnings upon request. There are many however, who are outright scams, looking to take advantage of you and separate you from your money.
It's hard enough to beat the odds, as the house has a built in vigorish (commission), when you're laying -110 which is essentially risking $110 to profit $100. This equates to having to win more than 52.38% of your bets to break even and even higher to win. The last thing you need is to have a ZERO percent chance of winning by not taking the proper steps to assure that you're sending your money somewhere safe.
Whether it be Predictem, or another sports handicapping website that has been around for years and is familiar with the safest places to bet on sports, you should always seek out an endorsement of a gambling site before sending them your money. While all sites in the online sports betting industry are "businesses" and as we all know, businesses can tank, it's a very rare occurence for it to happen to an online bookmaker with a good track record.
Needless to say, we only advertise sites that have a long history and track record of treating their players well and operating with the utmost integrity.
Another benefit of playing with Predictem endorsed sportsbooks is if you have a (legit) problem/issue, we can contact them on your behalf and go to bat for you.
In summary, don't take chances with betting sites that offer giant bonuses and too good to be true offerings. These places are most likely a scam and/or running a business model that is unsustainable.
