Best 2020 Super Bowl Betting Sites

This year, NFL fans in more than a dozen states will be able to legally bet on the 2020 Super Bowl online or in-person at sportsbooks that are legal, licensed and regulated. For everyone else, fantasy sports sites serve as a viable alternative method to get some skin in the game and potentially win real money.

Where to Bet on the 2020 Super Bowl Legally in the USA

Sports betting legislation has been fully passed in 20 states plus Washington, DC. Of those states, 14 have gone live with mobile sports betting, retail sportsbooks or both.

An even larger number of states have legal daily fantasy sports options that serve as the next best thing to actual sports betting.

States with Mobile Betting Apps

Nine states have mobile sportsbooks up and running as of today. On game day, NFL fans in each of the following states will be able to bet on the NFL from anywhere within state lines.

Sports fans in neighboring states are also welcome to sign up and deposit from out of state. Each state that has legalized sports betting to date only requires customers to be located within state lines at the time wagers are placed.

Most states allow customers to register remotely, but a handful have passed laws requiring customers to visit a casino in-person to sign up for an online betting account.

New Jersey

  • Minimum betting age: 21
  • In-person registration required? No
  • Read more: NJ Sports Betting

This will be the second Super Bowl for which New Jersey has had legal sports betting. Last year’s Super Bowl generated nearly $35 million in total betting handle and was a good one for bettors, who managed to come out on top by $4.5 million thanks to New England’s 10-point win over Los Angeles.

The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE) has issued additional licenses to mobile sportsbooks since then. Today, there are 17 legal betting sites in New Jersey along with retail sportsbooks at Meadowlands racetrack, Monmouth Park and each of Atlantic City’s casinos.

Indiana

  • Minimum betting age: 21
  • In-person registration required? No
  • Read more: IN Sports Betting

Hoosiers will get their first chance to legally bet on the Super Bowl courtesy of legislation approved last year authorizing retail sportsbooks and mobile betting apps. There are now four legal betting sites in Indiana to complement the retail sportsbooks that are open at most casinos.

The Indiana Gaming Commission (IGC) is also preparing for a busy Super Bowl betting season. Last week, the IGC approved seven categories of prop bets that allow licensed sportsbooks to take novelty wagers on events such as the coin toss, color of the postgame Gatorade shower and more.

Pennsylvania

  • Minimum betting age: 21
  • In-person registration required? No
  • Read more: PA Sports Betting

This year will also mark Pennsylvania’s first Super Bowl with legal sports betting. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) has issued online betting licenses to eight mobile betting sites and multiple retail sportsbooks across the state.

West Virginia

  • Minimum betting age: 21
  • In-person registration required? No
  • Read more: WV Sports Betting

West Virginia legalized sports betting in 2018 and is now home to three mobile sportsbooks and three retail sportsbooks. This will be the second year in which West Virginians can bet on the Super Bowl online, but it will be the first year that they can do so with big-name providers FanDuel and DraftKings.

New Hampshire

  • Minimum betting age: 18
  • In-person registration required? No
  • Read more: NH Sports Betting

The New Hampshire Lottery operates mobile sports betting through a partnership with DraftKings, the only authorized online sportsbook. DraftKings New Hampshire launched just in time for the tail end of the 2019/2020 NFL season and will be taking Super Bowl wagers from across the state.

Retail sportsbooks powered by DraftKings and a lottery-based sports betting product are also set to launch in New Hampshire over the near term.

Oregon

  • Minimum betting age: 21
  • In-person registration required? No
  • Read more: OR Sports Betting

Online sports betting launched in Oregon with the debut of the Scoreboard app by the Oregon Lottery in October 2019. As of this post, the Scoreboard website has priced the Kansas City Chiefs as 1-point favorites and lists 83 unique betting markets that include the likes of first quarter outcomes, first player to score a touchdown, passing totals and much more.

Iowa

  • Minimum betting age: 21
  • In-person registration required? Yes
  • Read more: IA Sports Betting

The most important thing Iowa NFL fans should know is mobile betting sites require in-person registration. This means anyone planning to bet on the Super Bowl online will need to visit a land-based casino between now and game day in order to set up an account.

Nevada

  • Minimum betting age: 21
  • In-person registration required? Yes
  • Read more: NV Sports Betting

Nevada has more Super Bowl betting experience than every other state combined, and a more developed industry to boot. Last year, Nevada sportsbooks took in just under $146 million in wagers to end a three-year streak of setting records every year.

It will be interesting to see how Nevada does this year with the Patriots not in contention and even more states with legal sports betting. Westgate sportsbook manager Ed Salmons told the Las Vegas Review Journal last year that he thought “the Patriots’ fatigue thing played a role” in the state not seeing more handle.

He also guessed a Chiefs appearance last year would have generated much more handle:

“Everybody wanted to see the Chiefs against the Saints or the Rams. I’d be willing to bet if the Chiefs were in the game, the handle would’ve blew away last year’s record.”

Rhode Island

  • Minimum betting age: 18
  • In-person registration required? Yes
  • Read more: RI Sports Betting

The Rhode Island Lottery operates a sports betting monopoly that consists of online betting at SportsBetRhodeIsland.com and retail sportsbooks at Twin River Casino in Lincoln and Tiverton Casino in Tiverton.

This will be Rhode Island’s second Super Bowl with legal retail betting but the first with mobile sports betting. Rhode Island residents scored big on the Super Bowl last year after overwhelmingly backing the New England Patriots.

The Rhode Island Lottery revealed last year that nearly 51,000 wagers were placed on the Super Bowl and more than three quarters of bettors picked the Patriots, resulting in the state’s two retail sportsbooks booking a loss of about $2.3 million.  

States with Retail Sportsbooks

NFL fans in the following sports can bet on the 2020 Super Bowl at retail sportsbooks only this year. Mobile betting is not yet an option in any of these states so all wagers will have to be placed in-person at licensed sportsbooks.

Arkansas

Two Arkansas sportsbooks are now open for business with two more set to launch in the future. Anyone wanting to place a bet on this year’s Super Bowl will need to visit the sportsbook at Oaklawn Casino or the sportsbook at the Saracen Casino Annex.

Delaware

As the first state to book a legal sports wager outside of Nevada, Delaware will have sports betting in place for a second Super Bowl this year. Last year, legal DE sportsbooks took about $2.2 million in Super Bowl wagers. Once again, sports fans can visit Dover Downs, Delaware Park or Harrington Raceway to place their wagers.

New York

New Yorkers will be able to legally bet on the Super Bowl for the first time at eight local casinos. Lawmakers have been discussing adding online betting to the mix and will probably move on that sooner rather than later. In the meantime, all NY Super Bowl bets will have to be placed in-person except for fans who can cross into New Jersey to bet online there.

New Mexico

New Mexico has not officially legalized sports betting, but four tribal casinos have opened sportsbooks since the Supreme Court overturned PASPA. NFL fans can bet on the Super Bowl at the Santa Ana Star just north of Albuquerque, Hilton Buffalo Thunder in Santa Fe, Isleta Resort & Casino in Albuquerque and Inn of the Mountain Gods in Mescalero.

Mississippi

Mississippi does not yet have the convenience of mobile betting, but more than two dozen casinos spread across the state put the nearest sportsbook within a reasonable drive for residents in most parts of the state. Last year, Mississippi’s commercial sportsbooks handled a little over $4.5 million in Super Bowl wagers.

States with a DFS Alternative for the Super Bowl

The rapid spread of legal sports betting in the US portends well for Super Bowl betting in the future, but fans in states that have not yet joined the legalization bandwagon do have viable alternatives in the meantime.

Daily fantasy sports sites such as Monkey Knife Fight, FanDuel and DraftKings will be hosting Super Bowl contests this year with significant prize pools to be won. Daily fantasy is the next best alternative for those in states without legal sports betting as it gives fans across most of the country a chance to have some skin in the big game.

For instance, DraftKings will be hosting hundreds of Super Bowl fantasy contests at all buyin levels, including the marquee $4 Million Super Bowl guarantee with a buyin of just $10.

Likewise, FanDuel will be hosting a similar number of contests, including its own $3 Million Big Game contest with $1,000,000 reserved for the first-place finisher. That one comes with a reasonable buyin of $9.

As the various fantasy sites gear up for the 2020 Super Bowl, we will update this post with new promotions and key information for NFL fans in the following states.
