Welcome, Scores and Odds fans and bettors!
First, we want to take this opportunity to thank you for the loyalty you’ve shown the Scores and Odds brand over the years. We’re extremely grateful for your support and we appreciate you.
Next, you may have realized the Scores and Odds website has a brand new look! We’re writing this page for you, our users and visitors, to explain why the site looks different, what has changed, and why we we decided to do this overhaul now.
New Features on Scores and Odds
The first thing you’ll notice about the new-look Scores and Odds is that we’ve made some additions. Many of the new features we’ve added are in direct response to the quickly-evolving landscape of legal wagering in the United States. With more states regulating and launching online sports betting, we decided it was time to begin covering this burgeoning market so Scores and Odds users are completely informed about the various new sportsbook options and where they are available.
You can check out our main hub for the legal online betting market by clicking here or on the link in the far right of the main navigation menu:
Odds Comparison Pages
One of the new features we’re most excited about is our sports-specific odds comparison pages. These pages will compare the odds for totals, spreads and moneylines across the largest legal U.S. sportsbooks so our users can easily line shop and find the best value.
You can find the odds comparison page for each sport in the navigation menu under the sport tab:
Here’s an example of what the odds comparison tool looks like for a full list of games:
And here’s where the tool can come in handy, when there are distinctly different values between the sportsbooks for moneyline, total and spread:
You can even use the tool to take you directly to the online sportsbook that offers the best value by clicking the BET NOW button on the line you want to book:
Daily Odds Pages
For each sport, there is a homepage of sorts, which offers you an easy way to find the info that matters most to you, and to print the day’s schedule for each individual sport. These daily odds pages and schedules will always be the first link under the sport tab.
Here’s an example:
Online Sportsbook Pages
As the legal U.S. betting market expands, more online sportsbooks will become available to bettors and fans in a wider range of locations. We want to ensure our users are up to speed about the best online sportsbooks and, more importantly, the best available bonuses and promo codes.
Our online sports betting area (referenced above) is already populated with a number of sportsbook pages, and we’ll continue to add more as they become available.
Here’s an example of what our DraftKings Sportsbook page looks like:
Other New Features
Some other new features you might find useful are:
- Improved Matchup Pages: these new pages give you even more statistics and details, including boxscores from previous matches between the teams. [Click here to see example]
- Expanded Sports Coverage: we know that the lack of major American sports right now is painful, so especially now, as we wait for our favorite sports to resume, we’ve added coverage for events like MMA. [Click here to see example]
But Where’s My Stuff?
We understand that change is sometimes difficult. But it doesn’t always have to be, and we’ve tried to keep Scores and Odds as useful and helpful as possible.
With that said, some of the tools and pages you’re used to using have changed a little bit. Here’s how:
The complete history of line movements for a given matchup can be found in GAME DETAILS:
Once you click on game details, you can find the full history by selecting LINE MOVEMENTS:
