Legal in the United States – 32 states plus DC

A number of US states have enacted legislation that allows for the legalization of sports betting. Some of these laws allow retail (in-person) betting while others are aimed at online betting.

The most common form of sports betting in the United States is football, with most action taking place on Sundays. However, there are other events that can be bet on throughout the week.

MLB and College Soccer

In addition to NFL betting, fans can also bet on baseball, basketball, and hockey. Most top sportsbooks offer extensive coverage of these games.

Betting on college football is more prevalent in some parts of the country, but be sure to check local laws before placing a bet. Some states do not permit betting on collegiate teams or events, while others restrict certain types of wagers.

MLB and College Soccer

NCAA baseball is another sport that has been a hotbed of betting action. While most states do not allow wagering on in-state college teams through mobile, some do permit wagers on college player props.

Other sports and leagues

Other major US sports leagues have begun to pursue a role in US sports betting, including an attempt to obtain a share of the profits. Leagues have also sought to impose mandates regarding what data must be collected. These battles over the rights to collect and use data have emerged as a key front in the ongoing quest for federal and state laws governing sports betting.
