ESPNBet Sportsbook – Score
ESPN is one of the biggest broadcasters in the US and now it is hoping to dip its toes in the online sports betting arena. Although ESPN has a dedicated sports betting YouTube channel offering the best tips and news, currently there is no sportsbook to speak of.
There has been speculation in the past few months suggesting ESPN is in the process of striking deals with other major sports betting players, including BetMGM and bet365, but nothing has materialized yet. But with more states legalizing online gambling, perhaps this will change in the future. It is hoped that an ESPN sportsbook will be launched sooner rather than later, and if it does, this is what you should expect.
- Mobile Gaming
- Withdrawal Methods
The odds are paramount to any sports betting experience as it will persuade new players to take the plunge and sign up to an operator. We believe, that should ESPN launch a sportsbook, it will offer a deep range of lines and competitive odds for the Moneyline, props, and teaser style bets.
ESPN is an all-rounder, so we expect there to be a multitude of markets for all US sports, such as NFL, NBA, and the MLB, as well as opportunities for bettors to wager on other sports, such as tennis, golf, and UFC.
The ESPN bonus could be intriguing. If the broadcaster launches a sportsbook, then it could follow market expectations and serve up a competitive matched deposit bonus to new players or free bets as an alternative.
While ESPN is best known for its sports coverage, it could diversify and have a casino arm to its operation. If so, we imagine ESPN will collaborate with the biggest software developers in the business, such as NetEnt and Pragmatic to offer a selection of the finest slot titles and there will also be a variety of classic table games, such as blackjack and roulette.
Customer Support – ESPNBet
Offering good customer support will retain the loyalty of players at sports betting sites. ESPN could have a live chat facility, although we are not sure whether there will be an email or phone number to speak to a member of the ESPN sports betting team directly. Nevertheless, there could potentially be an extensive FAQs section, so that bettors can pinpoint any issues relating to their account or anything else.
The sports betting sites that have a wide range of payment methods will stand out. Indeed, should ESPN launch a sportsbook, then we imagine they will have all the traditional payment methods, such as VISA and MasterCard, as well as a variety of e-wallets, including PayPal and Skrill.
ESPN may impose healthy minimum and maximum deposit limits and they could process withdrawal requests too. Remember, there could be fees incurred, so pay attention to this if ESPN launches a sportsbook.
ESPN already has a fabulous mobile app where you can get access to all the latest news and updates. We think ESPN will excel once it launches a sportsbook and there will be an app that will cater for iOS and Android users.
We also think that there could be a live streaming option as well as a deep range of in-play betting markets to satisfy bettors.
ESPNBet – A Summary
Although ESPN is yet to launch a sportsbook, we are on tenterhooks in the hope that it will materialize sooner rather than later. ESPN is already one of the most established broadcasters and moving into online sports betting would be a natural step. We also think that ESPN, should they unveil a sportsbook, will be well placed to succeed.
