Gambling911.com has learned that fledgling online sportsbook Bodog.com plans to launch a website that rates other online sportsbooks. 

The problem is, they apparently had no intention of disclosing Bodog would be behind the new site venture.

The model is based on a website called Sportsbook Review which rates online sports betting sites across the world, giving them grades of A through F.

The planned Bodog sportsbook rating site would be run by Chalk Sports. The Bodog VP of Marketing owns Chalk and is widely credited with running the company into the ground over the past year. 

The site will feature sports betting news along with Sports Book Reviews for top 5 sites. Latest User Reviews last 5 (likely entered by Bodog.com employees). 

The site will also feature individual sportsbook pages.

Additionally, Bodog will look to secure online sportsbook advertising for the site under the guise of operating as a separate entity. 

Gambling911.com has also obtained the work schedule for this new project:
