Best Legal New Jersey Online Sports Betting Sites

New Jersey sports betting is now legal and growing more popular every day. With online betting available in NJ, the state has grown into the second-largest sports-wagering market in the country. It has been estimated that NJ players wagered nearly $3 billion on sporting events over the last year, and the market continues to grow—especially with New Jersey online sports betting.

While Nevada legalized sports gambling over six decades ago, in just one year, the NJ sportsbook earned 60 percent of the yearly total handle of sportsbooks in Nevada. With so much financial success in its first year, New Jersey sports betting provides even more encouragement for several states in position to legalize sports betting in the coming years.

Maine, New Hampshire, and Illinois are a few states awaiting signatures to approve sports betting. Colorado and Oregon are also preparing for the potential legalization of sports gambling in their respective states by the end of the year. Many more are hoping to lay the groundwork by the time the NFL season arrives in early September.

Several betting sites have popped up since New Jersey's legalization of sports gambling. At BetAmerica, you can place your NJ bets online and capitalize on special promo bonuses each week to maximize your winnings. On our site, you will find lines on the biggest games of the year, including the Super Bowl, World Series, MLS, the Masters, Wimbledon and more. NFL, MLB, college basketball and football, and NHL are several main sports you can bet on on a regular basis, whether live betting or wagering on futures.

Many sporting events with traditionally lower viewership rates are finding higher engagement and increased attention as a result of legal sports betting. If you love sports, you can get even more involved by jumping in on NJ online sports betting at BetAmerica.
