How to Bet Soccer Online

How can I bet on Soccer online?

How can I bet soccer online or on my phone? I live in Nevada so for me this isn’t a problem. But, I know people who come to Las Vegas to gamble and enjoy betting on sports. I get the basic betting questions and some advanced soccer betting questions. But, the most common question I get is how can I bet on the MLS ( Major League Soccer ) or EPL ( English Premier League ) when I am not in Las Vegas.

A little background on sports wagering in the United States. Most of the money bet isn’t by large syndicates or some guy on a yacht calling his bookie. It is bet by average Americans and many of them never even go into a casino. It also might surprise some that the overwhelming majority of the bets in the USA do not take place in Las Vegas, but take place on a computer or smartphone.

Is Betting Soccer Online Legal?

The exact legal status of online sports betting is also complicated, with federal agencies offering shifting views. Sports wagering online has become even more complicated with the advent of daily fantasy football. Some States like Nevada, the one I live in has classified daily fantasy sports as a form of gambling. But, I can cross the border into California and there I can continue to play. Since I am not a legal scholar all I can tell you is how to open an account and how to get an online sports betting bonus if you should decide to open an account.

Now back to the overriding question.

How exactly does one go about placing a Soccer bet on an MLS, EPL, Bundesliga, Primera Division or even an Indonesian League game? The first step is to find a reputable soccer online sportsbook. That was the greatest concern I had when I first decided to play online. After a lot of research I finally opened an account. With my research and personal experience I have come to know several online sportsbooks and I can recommend a few. First and foremost when I recommend a sportsbook. I want to make sure I get paid when I win. The next thing I look for is the size of the bonus. The third is the ease of use of the screen. Here are the ones I would be willing to have a family member open an account with:
