If you are in the US I find the best place is generally 5dimes - there may be offshore books with slightly better odds but getting paid out by 5dimes is a breeze if you use Bitcoin. I can't speak to some of the others as I just have a local (with s*** golf odds) and 5dimes

Much better options if you are in Europe or somewhere else.

I am in NJ so soon I will be able to place my futures bets at the race tracks with a mobile app to follw. Can't wait.

I don't like the Watson pick.  He barely functions at US Opens.  I guess at 40/1 that isn't terrible.

I feel like his high ball flight and the way he can shape the ball will be key this week but I agree typically does not factor in a US open layout. 40/1 is worth a shot

If you like high ball flight and distance this week throw a little on JDay

I use bookmaker.eu.  Not to be a downer but it is important to note that a lot of those transactions with bitcoin are taxable events in the US (that is, if you are depositing with bitcoin and if you are selling the bitcoin for USD).

Lol what? I'm not trying to really give tax advice but if you are buying and selling bitcoins with dollars (like on an exchange such as Coinbase) those are taxable events.  I don't understand your 'blockchain as an intermediary' comment.

Well not necessarily the buying, but certainly the selling (both at an exchange and sending to a book for dollar credit).

I guess theoretically there would be no tax consequences if you sold immediately upon receipt of the bitcoin from the book and the value did not rise at all in the time you received it, and the value corresponded perfectly to your withdraw amount.

Yup just an easy way to deposit. Bank -> Coinbase -> Blockchain -> 5dimes and 5dimes- > Blockchain -> Coinbase -> Bank all in a matter of minutes

All goes away soon with legal NJ betting soon to begin

You are quite the s*** talker though huh? Seem like a blast

I love playing Noren but he bit me hard at the Masters and I have no exposure to him betting wise or DFS this week - chalk that up to meaning he will play well!
