Christmas came early for sports bettors in New Jersey in 2018 and their gift came from the unlikeliest of sources: The United States Supreme Court.

Gamblers in New Jersey were thrilled when the state finally legalized online gambling in 2013 but the state was banned from allowing online sports betting because of a federal law that essentially outlawed sports betting anywhere outside of Nevada. In May of 2018, the Supreme Court threw out the ban that had been in place for more than a quarter century after New Jersey challenged the law.

By August, DraftKings had already launched an online sports betting NJ platform and eight other sites soon followed. Under the law, New Jersey sports betting providers must have a physical sportsbook, so casinos and racetracks have been partnering with electronic gaming platforms to set up shop on the web. The law allows anyone over 21 years old to play, as long as they are within New Jersey, even if they are not a resident of the state.

Best NJ Sports Betting Sites

Eight providers offer all of the online sports betting NJ has to offer so far, with more companies planning to launch soon.

DraftKings, the daily fantasy sports heavyweight that partnered with Resorts casino to launch the first ever online New Jersey sports betting platform, is the most popular and offers players a a freeplay bonus and a deposit match bonus.

As with daily fantasy sports, one of DraftKings’ main competitors is FanDuel Sportsbook, which partnered with Meadowlands Racetrack and Betfair US to launch their online sports betting NJ platform. The site offers a risk-free bet, meaning that FanDuel will refund your first bet if you lose.

Other popular platforms include BetStars, Caesars Sportsbook, SugarHouse Sportsbook, 888sport, William Hill, and playMGM sportsbook.

NFL Betting

NFL wagers are the most popular type of online sports betting NJ has to offer and every online platform allows you to put money on NFL games, whether you are betting against the spread or straight up on the moneyline. Players can also bet on whether the final score will be over or under the point total projected by sportsbooks. Many providers will also allow players to bet on individual outcomes or events, like how many touchdown passes a quarterback will throw in a certain game.

NBA Betting

Until the federal ban on online sports betting was lifted, the NBA was a staunch opponent of sports betting. After the Supreme Court decision, however, the league quickly signed partnerships with MGM and BetStars. All online sportsbooks now offer NBA betting, except the Golden Nugget, whose owner also owns the NBA’s Houston Rockets and is banned from participating. Some operators, like Kambi, which powers DraftKings, SugarHouse, and 888, offer in-game betting options that allow players to bet on all types of individual events, like the results of individual drives or the result of the next possession.


NHL Betting

Unlike other sports, the NHL does not have a traditional point spread so players will wager on the “puck line,” which is always set at either +1.5 goals or -1.5 goals, meaning a team has to win by more than one goal to cash in. Because of that difference, most online sports betting NJ platforms offer straight up bets using the moneyline, allowing players to simply select who they believe will be the winner. Some sites will offer side bets that allow players to wager on the margin of victory, the total numbers of goals scored, and other individual events.

MLB Betting

Baseball betting is not as popular as football betting but the slow pace of the game lends itself perfectly to New Jersey sports betting platforms. Not only can players place wagers on the final outcome and against the spread, sites like those powered by Kambi allow players to bet on virtually every at-bat and pitch. Players can put money on the result of the next pitch, the result of the next at-bat, and even allows bettors to put money on individual batter’s or pitcher’s full game performances.
