Does The Action Network take bets?

No, we are not a sportsbook – we do not take money or accept bets. We provide sports betting analytics and content to help you make smarter bets. In order to place a bet, you need to bet through a sportsbook.

How often do the odds update?

The odds are live and update in real-time. As soon as the sportsbooks change the odds, they update automatically on the Live Odds page and in the app.

Where does the betting data come from?

The betting percentages (% of bets and % of money) come from various sportsbooks that we work with.

Where do the “open” and “current” odds come from?

The open and current odds are market consensus odds by default, but you can customize your sportsbook in Settings on your My Action tab in the app.

How do I input my bets in the app to track them?

In order to input a bet, you have to create an account (which is 100% free). Once you have created an account, there are a couple of ways to input your bets in the app:

  • +BETS from the Today view or Scores tab.
  • Or by clicking an individual game matchup and choosing a side from the game card.
  • PRO Angles section of the Today view.
  • You can also track bets made by experts from the Today View or Follow Tab.

How do I track Futures bets?

For Futures bets, you can click the Scores tab on the bottom nav bar (in between Today and News) and use the pulldown window from top bar to access Futures lines.

Do you plan on adding new sports/wager types/features?

What is the Free Trial protocol?

Some subscriptions are eligible for a 7-day FREE trial immediately following the sign-up date.  If you wish to cancel before you are billed, you must do so before the last day of your trial period as to not be charged.

What should I do if I’m unable to access items I’ve paid for as part of my Action Network subscription?

First, make sure you are logged in with your correct account credentials. If you are still experiencing issues, send an email to feedback@actionnetwork.com with the email associated with your account, the name/type of device you are using, and a brief description of the problem.

How do I change my credit card on file?

To change the credit card you have on file, go to actionnetwork.com and click your initials in the top right corner. From there, click Settings and then go to Manage My Subscription, Update Payment Method.

What is the refund policy?

In order to prevent interruptions in service, The Action Network uses a recurring payment structure where memberships automatically renew until canceled by the customer.

All memberships automatically renew upon expiration. Once you cancel, you won’t be charged again, but you are responsible for whatever charges have already been incurred for the current billing period.

For example, if your billing cycle renews on the 17th of every month, and you cancel on the 24th, you’ll still have to pay for the current month, but you won’t be charged again after that.
