NBA Against The Spread Picks For Wednesday 11/20
[box_text] Betting Plays For Wednesday Charlotte Hornets 6-8 at Brooklyn Nets 5-8 7:35PM EST Opening…
With a history, almost one century-long, William Hill is without a doubt one of the largest sportsbooks in the world. The UK-based company had Nevada as their point of entry in the United States. They expanded to New Jersey on September 2018 and are now present in almost every US state with legal sports betting.
Making a breakthrough into the US online betting market was, by all means, anticlimactic for William Hill thanks to their existing physical books at Tropicana and Ocean Resort and Monmouth Part racetrack. They brought the global top-notch expertise in this particular niche to college and football betting.

Use our exclusive bonus code “SPORTSBONUS50” when registering your account.
William Hill decided to attract new customers with a special “Bet $50 – Get $50” welcome promotion. To opt-in, you only need to register a new account and use the “SPORTSBONUS50” bonus code during the process.
On top of the welcome bonus, William Hill has several on-going promotions for their regular customers. The diamond live club is connected to baseball and works on the following principle. If you place cumulative bets on any baseball market, whether it is pre-game or in-play, totaling $100 in a period from Monday to Sunday, you will receive a $10 bonus.
This is an on-going promotion related to certain competition, British Gold Championship in this instance. If you bet at least $25 on any player to win the tournament, you will be eligible for the 100% cashback up to $50 if your player comes second at the end of the event.
This is another baseball-bound promo. It is valid only on Fridays. If you stake $25 or more on any baseball money line on Friday, you will earn a $2 bonus for each home run by the winning outfit if your money line bet wins. The bonus is capped at $50 max each Friday.
If you win the parlay with the biggest odds out of all William Hill New Jersey members, you will win a massive $1,000 bonus. The leaderboard resets twice a month (1st-15th and 16th-31st). The minimum odds to start the leaderboard are +9900.
William Hill brought a genuine traditional betting experience to the United States accommodating their New Jersey edition to US market needs. They have all widely known betting options available, including straight bets, teasers, parlays, round robins, futures, and propositions.
We are thrilled about their odds pricing.
The UK-version of the site does offer a much more lucrative array of betting markets and we were fairly surprised to see such limited betting options offered for New Jersey players. Placing bets at such enormously popular bookmaker has its perks, but New Jersey bettors have a much wider range of betting options elsewhere than at William Hill. The bookie puts the main focus at the most significant US sports, while the full list of 10 sports they have on the menu includes:
|Selection of sports to bet on|
|Auto-Moto Sport||Fighting||Ice Hockey|
The number of markets for each sport individually did not leave the strongest of impressions on us either. For example, the MLS clash (regular season) between Atlanta United and Houston Dynamo had as few as three markets available. We could place a bet only on the outcome, Atlanta United -1 Handicap (Point Line) and Over/Under 3.0 goals (Totals).
Baseball tie between Mets and Twins offered a somewhat bigger number of markets, but it was still way behind other local bookies.
The only feature we were satisfied with was the range of future bets. Here is what we found as potential future bets for the basketball season, months before its start:
Whilst we are a bit disappointed by the range of betting markets, the odds at William Hill New Jersey left an opposite impression. We were positively surprised to see their odds were more than competitive (and quite often even better for) against the world’s largest online bookmakers.
|Bookmaker||Match||Home Win||Draw||Away Win|
|William Hill New Jersey||New England Revs v Vancouver Whitecaps||-215||+380||+520|
|Competitor 1||New England Revs v Vancouver Whitecaps||-222||+333||+600|
|Competitor 2||New England Revs v Vancouver Whitecaps||-238||+370||+510|
|Competitor 3||New England Revs v Vancouver Whitecaps||-227||+325||+575|
|William Hill New Jersey||Toronto v NY Red Bulls||-140||+310||+345|
|Competitor 1||Toronto v NY Red Bulls||-142||+300||+350|
|Competitor 2||Toronto v NY Red Bulls||-142||+300||+340|
|Competitor 3||Toronto v NY Red Bulls||-142||+290||+320|
Please note these are randomly taken examples. We can see William Hill beats the competitors.This is great news for punters who are after long-term profit and who prefer to place wagers on basic betting markets.
Similarly to pre-event betting, it is fair to say the options for in-play bets are quite limited. You will hardly see much going on in the morning and the action generally mainly depends on US sports. For example, morning on a slow day in the summer had only two tennis matches available for live betting.
The interface is very modest as there are no graphics to show stats or important events that happened in a particular match in the live betting offer. You only see names of teams (or players if it is an individual sport) and odds. Again, only basic markets are available.
The UK’s parent site has a strong live streaming feature available to its customers across the ocean, but New Jersey citizens will have to wait for such perk to be available to them. There are no signs of William Hill’s intention of introducing the live streaming facility to their customers.
We assumed William Hill would have serious issues with their banking options, but the situation is even worse than expected. There are only five options available for deposits and no more than two for withdrawals.
|Payment Methods||Processing Time||Payment Type||Minimum Deposit|
|William Hill Prepaid Card||Instant||Prepaid Card||$20|
|Physically at William Hill sportsbook||Instant||Cash||$20|
|Payment Methods||Processing Time||Payment Type||Minimum Withdrawal|
|William Hill Prepaid Card||Up to 72 Hours||Prepaid Card||$20|
|Physically at William Hill sportsbook||Instant||Cash||$20|
Registering a new William Hill account and placing bets there is as easy as with any other bookmaker out there. There are just two basic criteria you need to fulfill before beginning a new adventure with William Hill.
You do not necessarily have to be a New Jersey resident to place money wagers at William Hill. The only condition is to be physically present there at the moment of placing your bets. They use geolocation technology and can easily track your current location.
As Easy as Possible
Note that you can create an account or top it up from anywhere in the United States, you only have to be in New Jersey to place bets.
Now, the registration process itself is rather straightforward. The yellow “Register” button is easily noticeable at the top right corner of the main page. There are only two steps you need to go through to join the bookie.
Placing bets is the easiest part. You should just click the odds set for your desired bet and your prick will appear in the bet slip on the right-hand side of the main page. If you add two or more selections, you can easily choose whether to place these bets as singles or rather go with parlays or round robins.
Since more than 60% of bets came from mobile devices in William Hill’s Nevada version, we are not surprised to see the bookie making their mobile app compatible with both Android and iOS devices right away. Apps can be downloaded from both the William Hill site and Google/Play Stores.
Decent, Available for both iOS and Android Devices
Together with the app, you will have to download the tracking software to confirm your location as the site uses a geo-location technology as per state regulations.
Everything you can do through the desktop page is available through the mobile app as well. You can thus create a new account, place bets, make deposits/withdrawals, check the list of promotions, track your betting history, etc.
The “Contact Us” link can be found at the rock-bottom of the main page. It will guide you directly to the site’s customer support. They have three common channels and are at your disposal 24/7. Here is how you can reach out:
They also have a FAQ section. It can be found when you click the “Help & Feedback” button which will be at the top right corner of the main site. The “Contact Us” and “Live Chat” direct links are available there as well.
The framework for the sportsbook is robust, providing decent odds, a quality mobile app and customer support system. If you want to have amazing gameplay and significantly increase your bankroll, then this betting platform is a good choice.
Considering the name and the size of a historically recognizable sports betting brand, we have to say that William Hill did not live up to meet our high expectations. There are only 10 sports offered for betting, markets are a bit limited, the in-play section is also slightly below US standards. They obviously need to add more sports into the sportsbook and add some extra events/markets for matches in the regular season. Will Hill are running their sportsbook under 3 local casino licenses – Monmouth Park, Ocean Resort Casino, and Tropicana Atlantic City.
Also, their welcome offer is worth taking advantage of as it does not have tough wagering requirements. We found decent on-going promotions for their regular customers as well.
Nonetheless, if you are ready to ignore the mentioned downsides, William Hill do have one major advantage over even the best European bookies. We were thrilled with their pricing. William hill had friendlier odds than almost any other bookmaker in the world for some randomly-picked events.
