Super Bowl 2014: How & Where to Bet Online

According to USA Online Sports Books, sports betting online is legal for the customer, though it’s recommended that prospective gamblers only use very reputable sites (DO SOME RESEARCH!). Laws and regulations regarding the practice are still unclear in the U.S., but what is certain is that no person has been prosecuted by feds (there have been local cases in Oklahoma and North Dakota) for making bets online. Laws against gambling always focus more on those who are providing the service rather than the gamblers, as there is a federal law against accepting a bet. Ultimately, though, I would recommend consulting a lawyer before gambling online for complete peace of mind.

With that out of the way, the Super Bowl arrives this Sunday, and it’s predicted that this will be the most gambled-upon Super Bowl of all time, so where do you go to bet?

Here’s what you need to know:


Paddy Power is a favorite among novice gamblers as it has the most user-friendly gambling website in the game. The bookmaker, which was in the news for sponsoring one of Dennis Rodman’s trips to North Korea, is also the best place to find novelty bets.


Ladbrokes is PP’s more grown-up and mature brother, in that it offers similar odds and user-friendliness but without the novelty.

William Hill is the even more grown-up version — this site is only for gamblers who know what they want.

BetFair is a gambling site for the mathematicians out there. With its offering of “decimal odds,” it’s a much more technical and number-crunching gambling experience.


Bovada is the favored gambling site of most U.S. gamblers — but it doesn’t offer as many bets as some sites and it certainly isn’t as much fun as sites like Paddy Power. But if you want to stay ‘Merican, this is the place for you.
