Nails In The Offshore Sportsbook Coffin

With this weekend's announcements of Bet Jamaica closing and The Greek leaving the USA market, most USA punters have almost no reliable options to bet sports online.

It's not just the ability to get money in and out of the offshore books. Now there are fewer "outs". This means fewer books to shop lines and fewer books to lay action when faced with bet limits.

This really leaves USA bettors with Las Vegas as their only legitimate option. And that puts sports betting out of reach for most of us.

Now that the NFL season in on schedule, I may be tempted to try Proline in Ontario.

In the meantime, it looks like daily fantasy sports will be my bottom bitch for the foreseeable future. (Do you know what I am saying?)

Speaking of DFS, I have a pretty big announcement coming soon. Stay tuned.
