The OLBG Story

Established in 2002, Online Betting Guide began as a guide to the best betting sites and latest offers with information to help sports bettors place bets online.

US Sports Bettors Welcome

US sports bettors have always been welcome at OLBG even before legal online sports betting sites came back to the US again. 

OLBG was established in the UK in 2002 to provide a guide to UK betting sites and build a strong community of knowledgeable sports bettors. These services have expanded to sports bettors throughout the World, with OLBG being particularly popular in the US, Canada, Australia and Ireland

Americans make up a good part of our amazing community and have been using OLBG for years to enter their picks in our popular handicapping competitions.

US sports betting opportunities are covered very well with specific picks contests for NFL picks, NBA picks, MLB picks & NHL picks. For those not wanting to prove themselves as an expert handicapper, OLBG is often used as a fantasy betting site with cash prizes available. 

All prize money available on is also available to American citizens and can be withdrawn via Paypal or Skrill.

Soccer picks are well catered for with predictions taken on MLS as well as all the popular European leagues.  All these picks contribute to various overall soccer handicapping competitions. Tennis & golf predictions are also very popular and often feature amongst our best bets today

OLBG has grown to cover more than 20 sports, hundreds of leagues and thousands of events.  OLBG runs the largest and most advanced tipping/handicapping competitions in the World.  Significantly OLBG has grown and retained the best tipsters & handicappers of any sports betting community.

Please join us and help to grow the fantastic tips available for the US Sports and Leagues which we cover.

Legal US Sportsbooks & Casinos

Bettors do need quality regulated sports betting sites to bet at and trusted online casinos to gamble at, so with our users help we have also built some great content to help people to choose the sportsbooks and gambling sites which are best for them. 

For American users we list the popular legal online sportsbooks to bet with in each state. So please navigate to the state which you are located in or plan to bet within to get the latest news and list of legal bookies.  

Naturally New Jersey is well catered for being the first major state to really embrace legal online sports betting in the USA. Legal online sportsbooks have been quick to establish themselves and there are already over 10 online sportsbooks or mobile sports betting apps live in each of NJ, CO, IN, PA, MI & NV. Legal online sports betting is growing in the states of AZ, WY, TN, VA, WV, IA, MD, LA, CT, NY & IL with more states in the process of legislating. 

Whilst the big questions now are often around Where can I bet on legal sports online? or Is Sports Betting legal in US/ my state, OLBG seeks to answer many more questions around US sports betting. 

The US sections of the site (non state specific) will provide general information with regards to betting online in America such as how to claim free bets.. Then on a state by state basis we provide specific information, for example we have a full list of NJ Sportsbook Promos and another for Michigan sportsbook promos

Betting strategy is also a huge topic of discussion on the site with some members writing some fantastic articles and sharing them through the OLBG blogs section. 

We try to keep member content at the heart of all we do. As you explore the site you will see that whether it is in the strategy guides, the bookmaker reviews or the betting school lessons, our members knowledge and experiences are shared to help you to improve your knowledge and enjoyment of online betting. 

More recently, OLBG has expanded to also begin providing betting guides for casino. 

You can see detailed information on the availability of legal online casino sites as well as dedicated pages for the states where you can legally play at online casinos. So we have an nj online casinos list as well as lists for Pennsylvania, Michigan and West Virginia.

There are also many guides including an online slots guide. From these sections you will be able to navigate to the state specific content relevant for you or read full reviews and see the latest sign up offers.
