In 2018 the decision to legalize sports betting at a federal level sent shockwaves around the betting world. The world's largest economy had just opened its doors and everyone wanted in on the action.
With over 12 years of experience in the online sports betting industry, our team knew the US was the place to be. So, we decided it was time to build the US’ number one website for sportsbooks reviews, tips and guides.
Sit back, as we analyze, rank and update information from every state and sportsbook in the US. Our job is to make it easier for you to navigate the market and find the best sportsbook to suit your betting needs.
How we work
The team at BettingScanner and its sister sites all over the world, specialize in ranking and reviewing all the licensed sportsbooks operating in the United States.
We never promote, rank or publish anything related to offshore or unlicensed sportsbooks. Any sportsbooks we do write about must be licensed by a gaming association.
There are a number of factors to consider when we rank sportsbooks including:
- Usability & Navigation
- Value of odds
- Welcome bonus
- Availability by state
- Customer Service
- Payment options
We weigh these factors according to how important they are to users and input our ratings on a weekly basis. This ensures our customers are given the latest information.

Here is how our business model works:
