As the most populous State in America, the sports betting options in California could use a stiff shot in the arm. We find it entirely bizarre that the Government of California continues to watch their resident drive north up the I-15 to gambling destinations in Nevada or down south to casino betting hotbeds in Mexico.

Online Sports Betting Sites

Without any “Made in California” online sports betting available, handicappers in the Golden State are advised to wager with one of the respected offshore sportsbooks listed on our Top 3 Table below.

California Sports Betting Sites

With so many sports crazy fans living in California, one would think that state-grown online betting would be an option on the west coast. As this is not the case, the Interstate 15 highway gets a little busy on Friday afternoons as Californians hit the road and head to richer gambling fields.

Caliente Sportsbook

Southern Californians, particularly those living in sunny San Diego, have easy access to the Caliente Casino in Tijuana, Mexico. In fact, great Mexican casino, poker, and sportsbook action is just a short half hour drive from the SD Airport. The Hollywood Entertainment Casino is also a popular choice for betting fans traveling to  Mexico.

Sports Betting in Las Vegas

Having spent a lot of time in California, members of the crack OSB research team have experienced the three hour drive from Burbank to Las Vegas many times. Heading to Sin City on an inexpensive 50 minute airbus flight is even better. A world of first class sports and entertainment betting – on the fabulous Las Vegas Strip, is calling California.

Sports Betting in Reno

Californians in the San Francisco and Sacramento areas can take a short east and visit Reno, Nevada to feed their sports betting appetite. Known as the Biggest Little City in the World Reno is just 14 miles east of the northern California border. The Reno/Sparks area boasts over 15 full service, privately run, Casino and Sportsbook hotels.
