Best Sports to bet on in Massachusetts

Best Sports to bet on in Massachusetts

Sports betting is becoming more and more popular nationwide and the Bay State is no exception. According to a poll in the summer of 2022, almost 25% of Massachusetts residents placed a bet on a sports event the previous year. This trend isn’t going anywhere. The number is expected to grow in the years to come as Massachusetts becomes one of many states to legalize sports betting.

Massachusetts is a prime destination for sports betting, players, and fans. With attractive new market entrants like FanDuel Massachusetts, which will launch in the immediate future, the Bay State’s the place to be this season for all your sports betting needs.

Football

Football is the reigning champion among sports to bet on in Massachusetts. Considering how popular it generally is, this fact hardly comes as a surprise. Sportsbooks in Massachusetts have football betting with many possible wagers, from the simplest bets on the outcome to more complicated ones, like prop bets.

Novices are attracted to football betting because it is relatively easy to understand. The football season is very long, so punters have events to wager on from September through February every week.

Hockey


While MA does not have a professional hockey team, there are a few very popular college teams. Puck line betting is the most popular way to bet on this sport. Here, you choose whether a team will win by a specific number of goals.

For instance, a puck line of +1.5 for a game between two teams would mean one team must score two goals or more than the other for a bet on them to pay off.

Puck line betting and hockey betting, in general, are great ways to add excitement to a game, but it’s not recommended if you don’t have experience.

Basketball

Basketball is another very popular sport to bet on in the Bay State. Like football, it’s popular all over the world. It’s also unpredictable, which can make for a fun and potentially profitable betting experience.

Massachusetts is home to several college and professional basketball teams, so there are lots of options for people looking to place a wager.

Baseball

Baseball is the fourth most popular sport to wager on, according to a recent survey in MA. 11% of all sports fans in the state shared they had bet on baseball in the past year. The state’s two MLB teams are the Milwaukee Brewers and the Boston Red Sox. Punters in MA love both of these teams, making them consistent favorites across the board.

Baseball betting is relatively safe if you’re new to sports betting. Bookmakers set lines based on data about the players and the teams. This means you are less likely to lose money on a baseball bet than on a basketball or football one.

Golf


Rounding out the top 5 list is golf. The popularity of this sport has been growing consistently over the past few years, with more wagers being placed on golf tournaments than ever before. Golf is comparatively easy to understand, with a high chance of winning.

A lot of golf competitions take place each year, and bettors have a wide variety of options due to this. It’s hardly surprising that golf is appealing to bettors in MA with so many factors working in its favor.
