  • Gov. Chris Sununu signed H480 in the summer of 2019, putting online and retail sports betting into action and regulated by the state lottery in New Hampshire.
  • Despite being able to give out and accept five sports betting providers, the state only brought in DraftKings and it has remained that way ever since.

Teams to Bet On

New Hampshire is on the short end of the stick when it comes to teams in the state to bet on, with no professional teams and two D-I college programs — however, New Hampshire doesn't allow you to bet on in-state colleges, so that option is out. 

Here are the programs in the state if you're able to get to a different legal sports betting state and want to bet on a New Hampshire college:

Dartmouth logoDartmouth Big Green — Football | Basketball

While the Ivy League does have some competitive programs like Harvard and Yale, Dartmouth has fallen behind in the pack. The Big Green haven't been to the NCAA Tournament since 1959 and played in the CIT in 2015. 

The football program has seen some recent success in the Ivy League over the last decade, winning the conference three times since 2015 after a drought that started in 1996. Competing in the FCS means that less attention is brought to their football program, but the effort on the field still shows.

New Hampshire is as storied as it comes in college basketball, having the longest non-ivy league rivalry in the country with the Maine Black Bears that spans over 115 seasons. Their football rivalry with Dartmouth spans all the way back to 1901, giving us a little in-state rivalry to liven things up in what's a quieter state for sports betting.
