As we move deeper and deeper into the expansion of legal sports betting in the United States, we have more sports apps than ever to choose from for our sports handicapping and fantasy action.
In this article, we’ll talk about a few of the top apps that deserve a small square of space on your smartphone. We don’t want to overload you with options, so we came up with two betting apps, a fantasy app, and a breaking news app, all of which should be on your shortlist of sports apps for 2021.
Odds Trader Capping Central
When it comes to sportsbetting, more than 90 percent of the public has been convinced that they are betting for or against a team. But one of the most important things to realize – if you want to win– is that it’s you against the sportsbook. The Odds Trader app is the tool that sports betters need to gain a competitive advantage over the sportsbooks.
Odds Trader Capping Central Features:
- Live Game Tracking with Real-Time Scores
- Live Betting Odds and In-Game Betting Odds
- Bet tracker to keep records of your wagering history at each legal US sportsbook
- Betting odds comparison so you can get the best lines
- Match-up stats and head-to-head data
- Historical data
- No in-app purchase adds
Users love this app because it has everything they need to help them handicap games against the lines the sportsbooks set while being super easy to navigate. One of the most useful features is the fact that you can track all your bets no matter where you place them, so you can keep track of your performance and make adjustments to your betting strategies.
BETUP is a fantastic sports betting sandbox. It’s loaded with over 25 sports as well as eSports. You can use BETUP to wager on everything from NFL and College Football to Snooker and Handball, but with virtual money.
The only issue with this app is the in-app purchases are a bit annoying. That said, if you are thinking about making a real run at sports betting, BETUP is the perfect training ground.
Fan Duel is a must-have for those who are into Fantasy Sports and are starting to get into sports betting. You have the option to do both at Fan Duel. This is one of the best apps for fantasy line-ups and DFS. On top of that, you can pop over to the sportsbook side and bet. The only issue I’ve found with the app is when you are placing a bet, the screen will sometimes auto-move and interrupt what you are doing. This is something you need to be wary of so that you don’t enter your wager pick incorrectly. Other than that, the app is well-designed and extremely easy to use.
Bleacher Report is an app that every sports fan who wants to make money on fantasy or sports betting, or just be a bars stool sage needs in their sports app library. B/R began as a local beat-writer-type site. Now it’s still a local beat-writer site, just on a much larger scale. B/R often has impactful news before the sites like Fox Sports, ESPN, Yahoo, and CBS. The other great thing is your ability to completely customize your experience so that you only get updates and news for the teams you want.
If you want to be ahead of the curve on player and team rumors and breaking news, this is the app for you. It can help you make better decisions with how you set your fantasy lineups and even give you an additional perspective while handing capping matchups and player props lines.
The Score, Yahoo Sports, and ESPN. There are hundreds of apps available and even though we didn’t feature and of these, these three should at least be mentioned as valuable. The Score is fantastic for uber-fast scoring updates, and both Yahoo and ESPN are great all-around apps with news, scores, fantasy, more.
