First let me clear something up. When I reference Bovada it means the US version of Bodog. What their main brand, “Bodog” did was create a specific site for US customers, Canadian customers, European customers and so on. We’ve set it up so that you will be directed to the correct site, but they are ALL the same odds, bonuses and layout. For purposes of this review assume both Bodog and Bovada are the same, as they are.
Ok so this review is for the Bodog / Bovada sportsbook and casino. For specific information about poker, read our review of the Bovada poker room. For specific Bovada MMA betting info scroll down to the middle of the page.
Overview of Bovada – U.S. bettors welcome
Bovada.lv is the newly re-branded website, which was formerly known as Bodog.com. Bodog offers you a wide variety of online poker games, sports betting and online casino games. Bodog is one of the only gambling websites to offer poker, sports, casinos and to also allow U.S. customers to play. Bovada has a great 50% sign up bonus for new players, and they also have a variety of very easy deposit options so you can get your money safely on the site. They are also now accepting Canadian players for the very first time in over 11 years.

The online casino at Bodog is one of the best available in online gambling. The graphics and smoothness of play make it very easy and fun to deposit money and start gambling.

MMA and UFC betting at Bodog
Bovada.lv offers some great lines for almost every mixed martial arts event. They always have odds up for UFC fights at least one month in advance. Lately Bodog Life has been putting up odds for Strikeforce, WEC, Dream, Bellator,etc. If you like betting underdogs, I really think they have the best lines out there. My only complaint with Bodog’s MMA betting is the $500 limit per bet. If you’re not planning on betting more than $500, then this won’t be a problem for you.
