New York Sports Betting Updates: When Will It Launch, and What Bets Can You Place?
Originally slated to launch just days before the 2022 Super Bowl, mobile New York sports betting is now expected to start up within the next few weeks.
As the launch window comes closer and closer, new information about New York mobile sports betting becomes public. Here’s everything you need to know regarding New York mobile sports betting.
Which Sportsbooks will be Available?
Just a few months ago, the New York Gaming Commission granted nine different sportsbooks permission to launch once sports betting officially goes live in the state.
Here are the nine sportsbooks currently allowed to operate in New York:
What Bets Will You Be Able to Place?
Once New York sports betting goes live, there will be only no restrictions on what bets you will be able to place when you go to bet on your favorite teams.
Moneyline Bets: Want to pick a winner straight up, no strings attached? Then Moneyline Betting is for you.
Spread Betting: Are you so confident a team will win that you’re willing to give up points? Or, on the contrary, are you so unconfident that a team will win, or maybe only win by a close margin? Spread betting allows you some leeway on games, where the team you bet on can lose, but if they lose by the amount of points you got them at, then you still win.
Parlay Betting: The best way to make a lot out of a little in sports betting, parlay betting allows you to combine several different bets into one, giving you boosted odds on all of them to happen. Be careful though–because every bet has to hit in order for you to receive your money.
Teaser Bets: They’re kind of like parlay bets, but a bit different. Click HERE to learn about what makes a teaser a teaser.
Future Bets: Have any ideas as to who will win next year’s NBA Championship? Then hop on over to the futures tab and place your future bet.
Prop Bets: NotProp Bets: Not so big on betting on individual games? Then why not bet on individual PLAYERS by choosing some prop bets.
Mobile New York Sports Betting Restrictions
While there is only one restriction, it is quite a big one.
College sports are massive in the state of New York, and the State has a ton of schools inside of it that compete at the highest D1 level. Unfortunately for New York residents, if they want to bet on any collegiate game involving a school or university in New York, they will be prohibited to do so.
So, bets on the following teams will not be allowed:
- Syracuse University Basketball
- University of Buffalo Football
- IONA Basketball
- St. John’s University Basketball
- St. Bonaventure University Basketball
And many many more.
Regardless, New York sports bettors should have no issues finding other things to bet on once mobile sports betting launches. And once it does, be sure to check Oddsseeker daily for best bets, predictions, and other sportsbook bonuses!!
