So with no Miami games this season, I'm looking to make some of these other college football games a little more interesting. Thinking of dipping my toe into the sports betting pool. Nothing crazy, just want to put a few bucks on a game or nine. Any recommendations for an online sportsbook? From what I've gathered, living in Ohio limits my options because sports gambling isn't legal yet. So I guess I have to go international? Any pointers would be appreciated.

    Find someone in your town with a good reputation. There isn't a single off-shore sportsbook with a reputation of reliability as it pertains to payouts and customer service (although, they do tend to be more friendly to players using bitcoin).

    Do you know someone in a state that allows mobile betting that you trust?  Maybe they could place bets for you.  I'm sure that's not exactly legal but I think I'd feel safer doing that than going through the local bookie.

    So I decided to open an account with Bovada. Yanks' comments don't surprise me, so this will probably turn out to be a dumpster fire. My deposit was relatively small, so at least my risk is pretty minimal as well. Week 1 was fun. Did well on CFB, NFL was a lot harder imo.

    I may try to explore other options until Ohio does the inevitable and allows sports betting.

    I think we should help Alex set up a "book" and MHTers get the house discount.

    A friend of mine recently was able to cash out from Bovada without issue, although those stories are more rare than they should be. PM me if you ever need any guidance (not about picks, you'll regret that).

    A lawyer should understand that plagiarism is wrong.

    Is it really plagiarism if it happens during the plague?

    Where do you live?  All the Indiana and Pennsylvania casinos have sports betting.  You could establish an account at one of them and then just drive across the state line and call in your bets.  Or if you live close, just drive to a nearby casino in one of those states and place your bets for the week.
