    Heads up to those from the US who deposit and withdraw into their bank accounts. I just handled a transaction for a large bank that has a form within their closing package in regards to the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unlawful_Internet_Gambling_Enforcement_Act_of_2006). The form basically stated that you were made aware of the act and that you will not transact any online gambling through accounts at that bank. It had a provision that they can freeze your account and even accelerate your note/mortgage forcing you to refinance from their institution or enter foreclosure.

    I've seen similar things through the years with people denied loans due to source of funds in their account being from online gambling. Even money going out for deposit was identified which caused a red flag for underwriting. Ironically, our state has now made online gambling legal, however, this is a new form that I haven't seen throughout my 13 years in the business.

    If you aren't doing crypto or other methods to conceal, your best bet is to keep a small account in a bank that you do not plan using for many transactions. Do not disclose this account on loan apps.

    Have you made any withdrawals recently from an online sportsbook?

    It's been a while now that 5dimes has increased their minimum withdrawal. I always did the cash option through Western Union. I would go to a check cashing place for it.

    Maybe it has been questioned, i tried searching, but couldnt find it:

    I noticed that betting exchanges doesnt really offer better lines than the bookmakers. I can see utilizing betting exchanges during in-play(my plan so far), but am i missing something in using it in regards to pre-betting? From what i see the lines are lower and the exchanges takes a commision?

    You don't get limited on exchanges and you can get down bigger bets

    Hi, I'm a resident of New York. I'm a bit confused regarding the legality here. I've read online that technically New Yorkers can use online betting sites like Bovada and others, but is it technically legal? Sports betting is legal, yes, but I've read that online gambling has not yet passed in legislation. It's a bit of a mess.

    Does anyone have any clarification? If I'm a New Yorker, I am just doomed to wait until they hopefully pass the legislation?

    this isn't really true. what you might be experiencing is just big gaps in a relatively empty market between prices. In general the odds available are better, and you can request your own odds for your bets that could very well get matched by another user. the idea isn't to simply look at the best odds available as in mma the markets can be pretty illiquid especially more than a couple days out from the fights. to see what i mean look at some of the bigger fights and you can see they have better odds than most books, and even the less important fights have much tighter lines and more liquidity closer to the fight, especially in the day or 2 before the fight. there's always gonna be outliers with books and in general there is more sharp money on exchanges which you can factor into the equation too. another thing to consider is the commission can differ depending on the country your in. UK users pay 2% commission which when factored in still results in better avg odds than books in general. some countries 5% is common and a couple places even a little more. but compared to the juice the majority of books take out it's still better on avg. also they can sometimes look worse when there's line movement happening as the lack of liquidity and ppl in the markets can make books odds similar or the same to the ones on the exchange. your best bet if your just looking to bet outright is to look at them when the event start and up until the fight starts.

    What is the best site for comparing UFC fighter statistics? I'm looking specifically for strikes thrown per minute so I can gauge who will win based off of output in the Woodley vs. Burns fight. Thanks

    Awesome, thank you for that. It's funny how something as simple as weight class isn't displayed on most fight cards (on the UFC site and here) so it's great to see all the stats displayed there.

    hey guys, can anyone give me a hand here. im using a new site... 5dimes, and they have

    lease make 1-25 selections for your Parlay and click on Continue above or below.

    UFC Fighting Money Line Total Points
    UFC 250 - Bantamweight 5 rounds - UFC APEX - Las Vegas, Nevada - PPV
    any venue has action
    Sat 6/6 1001 Felicia Spencer +425 o1½ -200
    11:59PM 1002 Amanda Nunes -550 u1½ +170

    what does the o1.5 -200 and u1.5 +170 mean. that surely cant mean rounds, right? cause they have that in a different section under Props and the odds are different. what does this mean? thanks guys, even tho im sure this has been answered before, i tried looking a bit and got tired, so.. yea. thanks

    and while im asking:

    f fight goes to scorecards all wagers are no action
    Sat 6/6 1143 Assuncao (scorecards = no action) +145
    11:30PM 1144 Garbrandt (scorecards = no action) -175
    any victory inside distance is a winner for selected fighter, see sportsbook rules for grading details
    Sat 6/6 1145 Assuncao points handicap +3½ -155
    11:30PM 1146 Garbrandt points handicap -3½ +125

    O1.5 and U1.5 do mean total rounds to be completed. What you're seeing under props is likely fighter wins in round x, or fight starts round 2, 3 etc.

    Regarding scorecards = no action bets, let's say you bet Assuncao (scorecards = no action) +145.
    Assuncao ITD = win
    Garbrandt ITD = lose
    Fight goes to decision = void

    For the handicap bets, let's say you bet Assuncao points handicap +3½ -155. If it gets to the scorecards, the gap in scores needs to be 3 or less. For example Garbrandt 29-28 x3 is a win, Garbrandt 30-27 x1 and 29-28 x2 is a loss. If Assuncao wins ITD you win, if he loses ITD you lose.
    The -3.5 handicap is similar, but your fighter needs to win by more than 3 points.

    na, look at this:

    Sat 6/6 1105 Assuncao wins inside distance +352
    11:30PM 1106 Not Assuncao inside distance -487

    if fight goes to scorecards all wagers are no action
    Sat 6/6 1143 Assuncao (scorecards = no action) +145
    11:30PM 1144 Garbrandt (scorecards = no action) -175


    theyre not the same odds, so it cant be assuncao ITD = win

    i literally thought the same exact things as you, until i noticed some of the odds just werent the same on what i thought they meant.

    hopefully someone can clarify
