BetAnySports Sportsbook Review
BetAnySports sportsbook is a sister sportsbook to the very popular bookmaker 5Dimes. The company have been in operation since 2001 and are licensed and located in the betting hub that is Costa Rica. In this review, we will assess the quality of BetAnySports service, focusing on the quality of odds and depth of markets as well as commenting on the customer service and much more.
Regular bettors will not see anything unusual about the BetAnySports homepage. At the top of the page, there is a horizontal menu bar which gives access to banking, rules, and rewards etc. The login and join now form is located at eye line in the center of the page and it is accompanied by a variety of sliding banners that give information on the sportsbook as well as promotions and bonuses etc. Underneath are links to the sportsbook, casino, racebook, poker, lotto, and bingo.
Customers cannot see the odds in the sportsbook until they are logged in, but once they have entered the sign in information, they are redirected to a typical US style sportsbook. It is very basic and there is just a list of the different events with checkboxes next to them. When bettors find their desired market, they can select it and click continue at the bottom of the page – this will bring up a list of all the odds.
The website is unusual as the homepage is up to date, uses sharp graphics and looks modern. However, the sportsbook is very dated and although functional, it could do with a facelift. BetAnySports sportsbook seems to have started to experiment with a change, as when customers are on the sports page, they can change the view to ‘dynamic lines’, which produces a list of the most popular bets (can be viewed in decimal odds or US style odds) and bettors have the option of a ‘one-click’ to get their selection into the bet slip. There is still definitely more room to develop the site, however.
Bettors will be pleased to know that BetAnySports sportsbook offers a 20% free bet up to a maximum of $200 (the maximum of $200 only applies to North America – everywhere else in the world, the limit is $50). BetAnySports impose a 5x deposit + rollover requirement before they can withdraw their funds.
Customers may not have duplicate accounts within the following group of sportsbooks: 5Dimes, Sportbet, Island Casino, Vietbet, ChineseBookie, Bombaybets, Nicabet or BetAnySports. All Bonuses must be claimed by the customer, (via phone, email, or Live Chat) within 24 hours of deposit.
The BetAnySports sportsbook focuses on the main betting sports, but also offer odds on a few obscure events. The sports that are available for wagering on the site are; American football, basketball, baseball, ice hockey, soccer, golf, tennis, motor racing, fighting, politics, horses, spelling bee, volleyball, cricket, puppy bowl, lotto and competitive eating.
For NFL games, the main three bet types are the spread (handicap), moneyline and total points. The spread is compiled to just over 104%, the moneyline is 103.5% and the total points line are 104.7%. The good thing about BetAnySports sportsbook is that for each of the three main bet types, they offer a variety of different lines to choose from. So for instance, for the New Orleans Saints v Minnesota Vikings game in the NFL, the Vikings were installed as -3 favorites on the spread. However, if a bettor wanted to wager on a different spread, they could do so and could down to -9 if they really expected the Vikings to win comfortably, or could go up to +3.5 if they wanted fairly small returns but a solid bet. In addition to the main bets, BetAnySports also provide a comprehensive number of prop bets for the NFL, with markets available on events such as ‘field goal being struck from 45 yards +’, ‘total accepted penalties’, and ‘total sacks made’ etc. These bets can make the game exciting for individuals who don’t want to pick a winner but want to have a financial interest.
Around the world, football (soccer) is the biggest betting sport by far. BetAnySports sportsbook has recognized the importance of including the beautiful game in their list of sports and have odds for matches from over 25 different countries around the world, including Egypt, Turkey, Portugal, Bulgaria, Italy, and Israel. The odds for matches in the popular leagues such as the English Premier League are fantastic, with the 1X2 markets compiling to 101.7%, which is one of the lowest margins in the online sports betting world. The spread is competitive but not quite as good as the 1X2, compiling to 104.5% and the over/under works out to the same.
With the recent exposure of boxing and MMA with the Conor McGregor v Floyd Mayweather fight, there has been a resurgence in interest in combat sports. BetAnySports provide comprehensive coverage of both sports, with fights from all corners of the globe. For the major fights, the odds work out to just under 104%, and the minor fights compile to closer to 105%.
BetAnySports provide customers with the opportunity to bet on all of the USA horse racing action. For each contest, the website lists the jockeys and the expected odds, and bettors can wager on the win, place or show. There are also exacta, trifecta, parlays and daily doubles etc.
There is a live betting section which is comprehensive and provides opportunities for customers to bet while matches are in session. Tennis and soccer are both popular for the in-play action, and there is the option for the odds to be displayed in US, Hong Kong or decimal style (which strangely isn’t an option when looking at the pre-match odds for a number of events).

By e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and live chat is also available. There are sportsbook rules which delve into the regulations and betting rules for each sport, but it would be nice if there were a more comprehensive FAQ sections to save clients having to contact the team with general questions.
There are not many countries that are restricted from using the BetAnySports sportsbook. The notable exceptions are the UK and Netherlands, who are not on the list of countries available when a customer signs up.
BetAnySports do have a mobile-optimized website. When clients visit the site while on a handheld device, they are able to log in and bet on the sportsbook. However, there is something that users need to know. If they just visit the site and log in as usual, then they will be faced with a desktop version of the sportsbook on the phone. Instead, when hitting the homepage, clients need to click the link to ‘mobile site’ at the top of the page, and that redirects the individual to the mobile-optimized site, which is easier to navigate around and access bets. The sportsbook is similar to the main site, with bettors selecting their desired market before checking the box next to their bet and adding it to the bet slip. The site can be viewed on iOS, Android and Windows devices.
BetAnySports sportsbook is very strong in some areas, but naturally, they do have a few drawbacks. However, overall, their service is good and they come recommended.
