Now that online sports betting is open to New York residents, fans of the state’s biggest sports franchises can play wagers on their favorite teams. So if you are a Nicks, Jets, Nets or Mets fan, here is what you need to know.
Since New York sports betting became legal in January 2022, some of the country’s leading operators have opened sportsbooks in NY. Famous names such as FanDuel, DraftKings and BetRivers New York are already up and running in the state and a number of other leading names are expected to join them in the near future. That means New York sports fans will have an incredible range of operators and betting options to choose from.
The great news for fans of the Jets, Knicks, Mets or Nets is that these operators want to attract new customers. That means they have a number of enticing welcome offers that give you free bets and other bonuses you can use for placing wagers on your favorite teams. Our guides will tell you all about the latest New York offers and promo codes so that you can take advantage of these offers.
This can vary between operators. Whilst all sports betting operators in New York will offer moneylines, spreads and over/under bets, you will find that some operators offer a wider range of other bets than others.
For example, during the NFL season, Jets fans will be able to place moneyline bets at all operators, but only some sites will have first/last touchdown score markets or spreads for individual players’ passing/receiving yards. Similarly, Knicks fans will find that only certain operators will provide markets for individual player points spread and other niche markets such as quarter scores and combination bets.
If you are a fan of just one or two major sports, then we recommend that you take the time to carefully read our operator reviews and explore the operators you are considering joining. For example, you might find that FanDuel New York has far more prop bets available than any other NY sportsbook. That type of information will help you to make informed decisions on which New York sports betting operators to join.
However you look at it, online sports betting becoming legalized is great news for New York sports fans. It means fans of teams like the Mets and Nets can take advantage of some fantastic new customer offers and place wagers on their favorite team. Just remember to always gamble responsibly and use the safer gambling tools provided on operator websites. Good luck!
This will come down to individual factors such as budget, preferred sports to bet on and the types of sports bets you can place. That is why it is important to carefully assess all of the available NY operators and to consider which promos are the most attractive for you.
