Betting On Sports In New York This Week And Beyond
Now that Caesars Sportsbook has launched alongside a few competitors in New York, bettors in the state have a wide variety of sports and events to wager on.
First and foremost, the NFL Playoffs start next week. The Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots are in the tournament, giving upstate and western New York football fans something to cheer for and bet on. Of course, NFL betting isn’t limited by region, so even Giants and Jets fans have plenty to enjoy from a wagering perspective, too.
The NBA and the NHL are in full-swing, so fans of the Knicks, Nets, Islanders, and Rangers fans have plenty of betting fodder.
MLB season is up next, and Yankees and Mets fans can get down on futures action, betting on their teams to win the pennant or World Series.
College basketball and the lead-up to March Madness is upon us, but there’s a small caveat. New York sports betting law prohibits wagers on in-state college teams. So you won’t be able to bet on Syracuse, St. John’s, or any other NY-based schools during the regular season or NCAA Tournament. That still leaves plenty of great teams to bet on, though. As long as they aren’t New York schools, you’re in the clear.
