PointsBet offers the widest range of prop bets on National Football League (NFL) and National Basketball Association (NBA) games of any bookmaker on the planet.
It also offers players looking for high-risk, high-reward options a betting feature that is unique to this site called PointsBetting. It is also an excellent choice for players who stick to the main markets in popular American sports, due to the lack of clutter relative to some other sportsbooks.
What’s not so great?
Beyond the most popular American sports, players can find options relatively limited compared to many other sportsbooks, with even the most basic markets not always available.
Further, players who are lured in by PointsBetting options before they fully understand how it works may find themselves going through their bankrolls faster than they expect. Players may also struggle to understand why they are unable to withdraw all of their funds while such bets are still open.
Sports selection at PointsBet Sportsbook NJ, IA, IN and CO
Players will find all of North America’s major sports leagues on the site, as well as some sports that are popular elsewhere. Boxing, soccer, rugby and even cycling all have markets available.
The site is still new in the US, so information on how many markets may be available is relatively scarce. Given the sportsbook’s commitment to serving NJ bettors with American sports markets, several Major League Baseball markets are likely to be available.
The sportsbook stresses that it offers more NBA markets than any other website, which makes it attractive to those looking for unique options. Some of the markets this includes are player shooting percentages, player multiples and how much time it takes for a player to score five, 10 and 15 points.
Players can also find more NFL markets here than anywhere else thanks to its extensive range of prop bets. Exclusive markets at the time of writing include quarterback completion percentage, the longest field goal in feet and time of the first touchdown in seconds.
Players who like National Hockey League prop bets will be impressed by the 100-plus options the site offers for NHL games. For those looking to bet moneyline on these games, PointsBet.com is the place to do it, as it pays out early if the team selected in a moneyline wager takes a two-goal lead at any point during a game.
Players can wager on basic markets for mixed martial arts (MMA) fights. These include moneyline, the method of victory, submission, round betting, and time of fight end.
Golf bettors can choose among outright wagering, tournament group and, match betting, finishing position, team matchplay, matchplay, and more.
PointsBet Sportsbook places a heavy emphasis on the sports most popular in the US.
Players can still find markets available for other sports, including most of the most popular markets, though the number of markets available varies widely based on the individual teams, leagues and other factors.
Players whose primary interest is in foreign sports or college sports, especially those who like to choose among a wide range of prop bets, can find better options elsewhere.
Sportsbook bet selection at PointsBet Sportsbook
Players can find moneylines offered on just about all events on the website. Spread and totals betting are also extremely common, though they are not necessarily guaranteed to be available. The bet selection is the same at PointsBet Iowa, PointsBet Indiana, and PointsBet New Jersey.
The site limits parlay wagering to a maximum of 12 selections. Players may only include fixed-odds bets on parlays because the site doesn’t allow including PointsBetting wagers as parlays.
Moneyline wagering is the most basic market the site has to offer and is readily available for all events listed.
After moneyline markets, spread betting is the most common line offered on the site. For most events, the site provides standard odds for the industry (-110), though promotions offering better odds are often available. The site offers no-juice lines on college basketball teams that are in the top eight.
The site offers no shortage of prop bets for NFL and NBA games, providing more markets on those than any of its competitors. Beyond that, the number of markets varies widely by the team, sports and league.
College sports and soccer, in particular, are areas in which players are sure to find more options available on other sites.
Over/Under, or totals, are available for the most popular American sports. They are sometimes available on other games, but even for certain soccer matches, this market is missing.
Other bet types
The site offers a unique type of betting known as PointsBetting.
This system gives players the opportunity to profit – or lose – based on how much a wager goes in their favor or against them. For example, if a player takes the New York Mets -1.5 and the Mets win by eight, the player wins more than his or her original wager.
PointsBetting markets are often available for totals and spread wagers and are sometimes available for additional markets.
PointsBet Sportsbook IA, NJ, IN, CO, MI, IL mobile app
Android and iOS apps make it easy for players to find the same wagers on their mobile devices as on the website. Links to these apps are available on site.
PointsBet Sportsbook’s loyalty program
One of the site’s most significant advantages is its loyalty program, an offering many sportsbooks have abandoned. Players receive a point for each dollar won or lost on PointsBetting wagers and each dollar bet on fixed-odds events, as well as five points for each dollar bet on parlays.
Banking at PointsBet Sportsbook
At the time of writing, the sportsbook does not offer as many banking options as some of its competitors. Nevertheless, the options that are available make it readily accessible to most players.
Players can choose to fund their accounts using a variety of options.
PointsBet NJ: ACH, Visa, Mastercard, PointsBet Mastercard, PayNearMe, Online Banking and the casino cage at the Meadowlands.
PointsBet IA: ACH, PayNearMe and Online Banking.
PointsBet IN: Online Banking
PointsBet CO: TBD
PointsBet IL: TBD
PointsBet MI: TBD
Because of state and federal requirements, the site requires players to provide identity verification, and either payment or credit card verification before making their first withdrawal.
Once that is done, players can make withdrawals by the same methods through which they can make deposits.
Note: Players who have open PointsBetting wagers will not have access to a portion of their funds until all such open bets have been settled.
PointsBet Sportsbook’s software
The simplicity of the site’s layout appeals to customers who play the major betting markets, especially those who want to place bets quickly. Its lack of streaming, graphics, and popups makes this site relatively easy to navigate.
Players who want answers to their questions quickly should start by checking PointsBet’s “help” page, the Revis Betting Academy, and the site’s terms and conditions.
Chat and email support are available 24/7, and the site provides phone support each day from 8 am until midnight.
More on PointsBet Sportsbook
Players who want a variety of prop betting markets for North American professional sports, and/or high-risk, high-reward betting options are prime customers for this sportsbook.
The site may also appeal to players who want a simple interface. Players looking to bet on college sports and foreign sports will find better options elsewhere.
