There are a few ways to get action down on the Super Bowl even if full online sports betting is not available in your state.
PrizePicks is a daily fantasy operator — meaning they’re available in more states (29!) than sports betting — that allows you to pick two or more player props together for real cash.
You’re playing against PrizePicks, not against other players like DFS contests on DraftKings or FanDuel.
