BetGuardian Overview

The BetGuardian brand name has had a long and successful journey, where it first began in 1991 where they were a sportsbook just taking off. They later on turned this enterprise into a more internationally renowned sportsbook in 1994 when they moved to the internet, starting their online sportsbook venture. They established their headquarters in San Jose, Costa Rica, which as many should know is a prime location for online sportsbooks; it allows them to stay close to the U.S. Why remain close to the U.S. you say? Well, the BetGuardian sportsbook has always liked and allowed U.S. sports bettors to use their services; this way, they can stay close to their bettors. Along with their expert management team, this online sportsbook has tons of experience and great services that help it be so successful.

The BetGuardian website, which hosts their amazing sportsbook, also hosts a variety of other great services; an online casino and racebook. The great aspect of this website is the fact that it allows members and non-members to check out the latest news and betting lines from the sportsbook; regardless of whether they have signed up or not. For those NFL fans that want to bet on the upcoming matchups, all they have to do access the Football, NFL option and they will get the latest betting line odds, along with the schedule of each matchup. They even include the TV channel that will be broadcasting the matchup; at least for some of them.

The reason that so many people prefer BetGuardian is the fact that they have a great lineup of sports options for them to wager on.

These sports are also internationally known, but not as much. For that reason, they also include Soccer, Tennis, and Golf to their lineup for those sports bettors wanting to place some bets on international sports.

Boxing has always been a favorite among bettors, and its younger, more action packed brother, MMA is also on the list. They do have Horse Racing, which included in their racebook.
