Legal Sports Betting is a repository of important sports betting information. We offer guidance, news, advice, and unbiased reviews to help sports bettors make informed decisions about where and how to bet. Even after the Supreme Court overturned the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in 2018, the sports betting industry is a minefield of legal quandaries and red tape. With both more betting options and more potential pitfalls than ever before, it is important for bettors to have a resource that can guide them through the intricacies of betting on sports. We aim to be a one-stop shop for all relevant sports betting information.
That’s where we come in.
Sports betting legalization in the United States is much like the country itself; a melting pot of different things that come together and form an industry. This market is comprised of the laws of each of the 50 states. There is no one law that the nation as a whole must follow which allows for 50 different laws with their own rules and regulations regarding gambling on sporting events to be out there.
Legal jargon alone or as we like to call it “legalese” is hard enough to understand unless you’re fluent, so we at LegalSportsBetting.com make things easier by simplifying each state and the laws they have out there regarding the wagering on sports.
Our network showcases a number of in-depth primers that sports bettors based in the United States should know. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to gambling or a seasoned bettor, all of the information about the industry and its laws as well as current news for all markets can be found on our website. All of this data is useful when looking to have a safe, legal, and fun experience betting on sports.
Along with innumerable resources and the latest breakdowns of all present legislative matters, LSB makes it our mission to offer our readers every detail about sports betting from how to manage accounts, join sportsbooks, place bets, as well as post previews of some of the biggest events happening in sports. For both states that have a legalized industry and for those without, we have lists and reviews of countless legal sportsbooks available for sports bettors nationwide.
Offshore sports betting platforms are used regularly by at least 80% of American sports bettors based on published estimates. The best sites are reviewed here on LSB as we are members of them as well. While we are based in the United States and discuss domestic sports wagering news, we also cover offshore industries as they get plenty of American action. Some of these platforms have even better odds than state-sanctioned options which is why the above estimate sits at 80% of Americans having accounts with them.
Here at LegalSportsBetting.com, we make it our main concern to educate readers about the industry and about the benefits and pitfalls of gambling on sports. We want to ensure the safety of everyone visiting our site when betting on the games and provide them with the proper information to allow for the best possible wagering choices. We believe the most knowledgeable gambler is the most successful which is the main purpose of our site. We have decades of combined experience as sports bettors ourselves as everyone on our staff gambles on sports matchups.
While we are not lawyers, we are experts in our field, and we have done our due diligence to ensure that all the information on our pages is accurate and reliable so our readers can bet with ease using the information we’ve provided.
