Comprehensive array of betting options, user-friendly format

As with the brick-and-mortar version, FanDuel Sportsbook offers the typical comprehensive array of wagering options, including:

  • Spreads
  • Moneyline/Run lines
  • Over/under bets
  • Game and individual player props
  • Parlays
  • Teasers
  • Round robin

FanDuel Sportsbook’s interface boasts a user-friendly design that bears some similarities to the company’s daily fantasy sports platform. Upon log-in, users are greeted with a lobby that has a rotating “carousel” of current betting options that are typically customized to that individual’s wagering history on the site.

Directly underneath a trio of tabs allows users to sort out all betting options by the following criteria:

  • Popular
  • Live
  • Upcoming

Upon clicking any of these tabs, users will find the selections sorted by sport and game or match. Each entry will further display odds for the Spread, the Moneyline or Run line, and the total. Clicking on a “More Bets” tab located in the bottom right-hand corner of each game’s entry reveals any additional wagering options, such as props on the margin of victory of either team.

To place a bet, users simply click on the tab containing the line they wish to wager on. That activates a betting slip on the right-hand side of the screen, which features “wager” and “to win” boxes. Once the wager amount is inserted, the “to win” box automatically populates with the potential winnings based on the odds.

The bet slip contains clickable tabs running horizontally across the top with options for Standard, Teaser (bets on minimum of two teams) and Round Robin (bets on minimum of three teams) wagers.

Wide selection of sports leagues available for wagering

Sports selections are also arranged vertically down the left-hand side of the screen. FanDuel offers a thorough assortment of options that consists of:

  • MLB
  • NFL
  • NBA
  • NHL
  • Boxing
  • Golf
  • MMA
  • Tennis

Sports not in season have their own unique set of “offseason” betting options. For example, before the NBA regular season tips off October 16, bettors can wager on the following:

  • Futures (Team odds on winning league championship, conference title, division title)
  • Team Wins
  • Player Futures (i.e. individual player odds on end-of-season awards and All-Star selections)
  • Playoff Specials

The latter portion of the left-hand column also includes the following relevant ancillary links that contain pertinent general information about FanDuel Sportsbook’s features, terms of use and overall use:
