American Punters Look for Reliable U.S. Sportsbooks for NFL Bets

Long-established Intertops has pre-season and regular season NFL odds online now

The first online sportsbook to post NFL lines this season is the most reliable choice for American bettors looking for a safe book to take their football wagers. Although sports bettors typically have accounts at several sportsbooks, legislative developments that have forced many operators out of the U.S. over the last year have prompted many bettors to consolidate into one or two accounts with the most trustworthy books remaining in the American market. – the first company to ever take an online sports bet in 1996 – has earned players’ trust over the last eleven years and is one of the few online sportsbooks that has remained open to bettors in the U.S.

“I like to gamble on sports,” said one sportsbetting forum post. “I don’t like to gamble on whether or not I’m going to be able to collect my winnings!”

Intertops hasn’t had problems accepting payments or paying out winnings like the books that have left the American market did. They’ve stuck by their American customers.

"So many big books have closed their doors to Americans,” said Intertops bookmaker Andy Donahue. “We’ve had a lot of action on NFL bets ever since we posted our early lines in June.”

Lines for pre-season NFL games are posted at Intertops Sportsbook on Thursdays. Current regular season odds are also posted here:;scrncd=BI;compno=1018;lan=e;hide=true

From this Friday until Sunday August 19th, Intertops is giving a 20% reload deposit bonus (maximum $250) on all deposit methods. Most market competitors will not be giving away offers like this until the first weekend in September – when, of course, will also be back with another great deposit special. But with 20 days to go until the September 6th NFL kick off, is kick-starting the season with this "20% for 20 days to go" special for its customers.

The long-established gambling site offers a wide variety of NFL props including Spread Winner, Over/Under Totals and Straight Up bet on the outcome of the game. The popular casino, poker and sportsbetting site also takes First Half and Second Half Side, Spread Winner and Totals wagers.

This will be the 88th season of America’s National Football League (NFL). Last year’s Super Bowl champions, Indianapolis Colts, kick off the regular season September 6th when they meet the New Orleans Saints at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis.
