Types of Sports Betting

sports betting

If you love sports and want to bet on your favorite teams and athletes, there are several different types of sports betting that you can try. One popular type of bet is Over/Under betting. This type of wager focuses on total scores for the game. An Over/Under bet can be placed on a game that is currently in progress, like the Seahawks-Rams game. If you’re looking for more exciting sports betting, you can place a futures bet on a specific event to take place in the future.

Delaware legalized sports betting

Delaware legalized sports betting in June 2018, making it one of the first states to legalize sports betting. Sports betting is now available to anyone 21 and over in Delaware. However, sports wagering in Delaware is restricted to three casinos and is not permitted on mobile devices. In these circumstances, offshore sportsbooks can be an excellent option.

Despite Delaware legalizing sports betting, the state has a complicated set of betting laws. Many of them are outdated and encumbered with inconsistencies. The state has a mixed record on sports betting, being progressive while also being restrictive. In September of this year, Delaware collected over $6.7 million in sports betting tax.

Oregon legalized sports betting under PASPA

The legalization of sports betting in Oregon is a significant step for the state. The lottery plans to offer mobile sports betting in time for the NFL season. The state has nine tribal casinos, so it is likely that land-based sports betting will follow. The state also has a long history of betting on dog and horse races, making it a prime candidate to develop a thriving sports betting industry.

In 1992, the state legalized sports betting in an innovative parlay-style game, known as Sports Action. This game was similar to the lottery but allowed sports bets in multiple teams. The lottery closed in 2007 and the Oregon sportsbook came online in September 2019. Since the Supreme Court removed PASPA, sports betting in Oregon has become a thriving industry in the state.
