How New Jersey Sports Betting Compares
We graded New Jersey on its sports betting bill and experience relative to other states.
New Jersey Sports Betting Rules
- No betting on college teams from the state, or college events in the state. The latter may not sound like a big deal, but it will be a bummer when NCAA Tournament games played at Prudential Center in Newark aren't on the board.
- Lack of new markets. NJ will always lag behind offshore books that can offer whatever they want, but it should be a leader in innovative bet types and markets.
