About Us – Footballbetting.legal

FBL logoFootballBetting.legal may be a fairly new website, but we are certainly not new to betting on football. We are a team of like minded individuals who have bonded over our love for football and our experience with online betting, which dates back to the 90s.

As avid football fans who enjoy betting on football games, teams, and players for both professional football and college football, we bring a lot to the table with this guide. We strive to give you input on all things betting related as a team of people who are just everyday Joes that have gained some expertise through first hand experience navigating the sports betting arena over the span of many years.

Our roles have evolved from enjoying sports betting action as bettors to using that experience to become industry insiders with a unique perspective. We use that perspective to provide genuine and meaningful insight to football fans who want to enjoy gambling entertainment, but need a little help navigating through the maze successfully. From sportsbook recommendations and betting basics to valuable football betting tips and strategy, we intend to provide all the resources that we wish we had when we were learning the ropes ourselves.

What We’re Here To Do At FBL

coach iconWe are not good Samaritans sharing our extensive experience out of philanthropy. Like any business, we do intend to make money. Our main objective to accomplish this is simple: assist individuals seeking legitimate online betting access through legal football betting sites and by doing so, make some money along the way.

There is a lot of misinformation floating around concerning online betting on football as well as the legalities and nuances surround this industry. We’re here to sort that out, simplify it, and provide you with the information you need to make a solid, informed decision about what is right for you concerning sports betting entertainment.

It also takes a lot of time-consuming investigation and industry insider knowledge to properly do a deep dive on an online sportsbook to the degree that we feel is valid for yielding legitimate results. We’ve literally spent the last 20 years doing just that, longer if you consider our collective experience as a team.

We were around in the early days of online sports betting when things were not as refined as they are now.  We’ve taken some hard knocks in that respect individually and have used what we’ve learned through real life betting experience to understand what gamblers need and want and how to access those things through identifying reputable, secure, legal betting sites. We are more than thrilled that others can benefit from what we’ve learned, and what we’ve learned not to do.

What We’re Not Here To Do At FBL

We thought it would be important to also tell you what we are not here to do:

  • We are absolutely NOT interested in convincing someone who doesn’t gamble that they should start. That’s not what the information on this site is for. The purpose of this guide is to assist individuals who are already seeking options for betting on football in finding safe, legitimate, and legal US friendly online sports betting sites.
  • We are absolutely NOT interested in just being a megaphone advertisement for any sportsbook. We ONLY recommend sportsbooks that we ourselves are members at, have used for at least 2 years (that’s called putting your money where your mouth is), and trust 100% with our own money and betting action. We’ve actually been members at some of these sites for well over a decade.
  • We are absolutely NOT interested in impersonating legal counsel. We are not attorneys and do not practice law. We are not trying to give you legal advice in any way, shape, or form. We simply provide our views and knowledge based on what we’ve experienced and learned from more than 20 years of placing football bets online. If you are seeking legal advice, please contact a lawyer who specializes in gambling.

    Accuracy Of Our Content

    Accuracy icon Things move quickly in the online sports betting market. While we work extremely hard to ensure that all of the content on our website is accurate at all times, it is possible for a very rare instance to occur where details of the industry change faster than we can update information.

    We monitor everything surrounding sports betting very closely, but we cannot guarantee that every word is completely accurate at every single moment.  We put forth good faith efforts to minimize any such instance of inaccuracy.

    Our content includes links to third party operators, resources, agencies, and various organizations. We are very careful about where we link to, however Footballbetting.legal cannot be held responsible for the content on any third party website as we do not manage content on any site other than our own. We are not employees of any of the sites we link out to and therefore have no input, contribution, or say so in any content found on those sites.

    The Integrity Of Our Content

    Football review iconOur list of recommendations is not long, and that’s not because there is a shortage of online sportsbooks to promote. It is because we are EXTREMELY selective with where we steer good people to.

    If we so desired, we could have a list of 20+ USA friendly sportsbooks to present to you, but the majority would not meet our standards and our integrity and reputation would quickly be in the toilet. Who would that benefit? Not our visitors and certainly not us.

    You’ll find a lot of reviews on the Internet. A lot of them simply regurgitate what someone else has said. We write reviews based on our own personal experiences. We are not beholden to any of these brands. If they let us down, we will not hesitate to reflect their shortcomings in our content. We take the influence that we carry in this industry very seriously.

We HATE spam and have invested some serious resources in avoiding spam ourselves.  The last thing we would want is to become that which we hate.


    While we do earn a commission from some affiliate partnerships represented on the site, we are not paid to produce any specific content, including reviews or any type of favorable opinions. Our views are our own and are based on first hand experience and our own interactions with each sportsbook.

    Responsible Gambling

    NCPG logoFootballbetting.legal has no intent to promote or endorse irresponsible gambling practices by operators or their customers. In fact, we 100% believe that responsible gambling practices are the only safe way to enjoy betting entertainment.  We are staunch believers that compliance to all relevant gambling laws is non-negotiable and that underage gambling inflicts harm on both the gambler and the operator, thereby rendering the enforcement of legal gambling age regulations paramount to keeping children and online sportsbooks safe.

    We encourage all bettors to engage in responsible gambling, and should you or someone you know fall victim to problem gambling tendencies, addiction, or other area of concern, please reach out for help at one of the following resources:

    • National Council On Problem Gambling (local chapters are available across the US)
    • ncpgambling.org
    • 1-800-522-4700

    There is absolutely no shame in seeking help for problem gambling, and we encourage you to utilize the various resources available to assist you.
