We teach you how to bet on baseball!

Rather than spending hours searching the internet checking out all of the baseball sportsbooks available, if you would prefer to find everything you need in one place, then this guide is exactly what you are looking for.

Here at TheGruelingTruth.com, we have put this page together as a one-stop guide for anyone looking for a new home for their baseball betting but doesn’t have the time, patience or knowledge to do it alone. Whatever the reason, we’ll take you through it all, from the bonus you’ll see upfront to what to look for behind the scenes. If you are new to all of this, we should mention again that you have come to the right place. If you’ve already searched online, you’ll know that you have plenty of options, but as every single sportsbook is likely to have told you they were best, you might not know what to think. As you’ll see, we have a team of experts who are all experienced bettors themselves, who check out each sportsbook and report back on what they find, so you will have their knowledge ‘on tap’ to help you make the best decision possible.

Why we are the best for Baseball bettors?

We give you a thorough analysis like:

#1 User reviews

To start with though, they will look to see what others think of the operator and see if there are any recurring problems they need to be on the lookout for, and raise a red flag if they see it themselves during their own detailed examination.

#2 Operator license

Our reviewers also check that the operator is legit, fully licensed to offer sports betting in your state and the status of their parent company if they have one, including whether or not they are listed on the stock exchange.

#3 Site security

We’ll look to see if the operator has a secure site for your data (an https web address among other things) and for your transactions (by having encryption for payments and withdrawals) and report back on anything we are not 100% happy with. Check out our top betting sites!

#4 The bonus

We all love a bonus, usually right up to the point where we see the wagering requirements. Our reviewers will check this out in advance, and while you should always check the small print yourself, they can let you know what is expected so you aren’t taken by surprise.

#5 Customer service

You don’t want to find out that the operator has zero customer support at the wrong time, so we test it out for you and report back so you know what to expect if you ever have a problem.
