Pennsylvania Sports Betting

Editor’s note: As of Jan. 19, 2021

The Keystone State became the sixth in the nation to offer sports betting after the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in May 2018 which opened up wagering on sports to the nation and not just Nevada.

With fans of Penn State football and basketball, the NFL’s Eagles and Steelers, NHL’s Penguins and Flyers, MLB’s Pirates and Phillies, and NBA’s 76ers and other collegiate and professional teams rejoicing, sports wagering hit the ground running and haven’t looked back.

Neighboring New Jersey may have had a head start and now is in a battle with Nevada to be No. 1, but Pennsylvania touts its betting success while leveraging the fact bettors can wager for in-state colleges, a perk New Jersey does not offer.

What about horse racing?
