Online sports betting in New York has only been legal for a few weeks, but it’s already turning out to be a massive success. This is because New York is a sports-crazy state that’s packed full of people desperate to bet on their favorite teams. Take a look at who New Yorkers are most likely to be betting on below!
New York is a state that has produced more than its fair share of sporting legends. Here are just a few of the iconic New York teams you’ll want to bet on.
Is there any sporting franchise quite so iconic as the New York Yankees? The Bronx MLB team might not have won the World Series since 2009, but they are sure to be a big hit at all online sportsbooks in New York.
There are supposedly nearly six million New York Knicks fans worldwide. While that’s a lot of disappointed fans given the NBA team’s recent form, they’ll be sure to come running to back the legendary basketball team now that online sports betting is legal in New York.
Seems that Kevin Durant isn’t the only fan of the Brooklyn Nets. After all, this basketball team has managed to upstage the Knicks plenty of times in the past few years. As such, there will be legions of Nets fans downloading the best sports betting apps in New York to back their team to continue their impressive recent performances.
Sure the Mets might not have the same iconic appeal as the Yankees, but the team from Queens can definitely pull their weight and they’ll always feature in the odds at all good NY sportsbooks.
Watching the Rangers at Madison Square Gardens is such a New York thing to do. But betting on the Rangers on a New York sportsbook app takes it all to the next level!
No longer are the Bills the eternal underdogs of the NFL. Now the Buffalo football team is regularly topping the NFL East and many people will be backing Josh Allen to take them all the way to the Super Bowl. See what you think the best sportsbooks in New York say about the Bills doing the unthinkable.
Good point! Obviously lots of New Yorkers will be betting on the New York Jets and the New York Giants once the 2022 NFL season begins. However, we had to strike these football teams off our shortlist as they are now based in New Jersey. Just in case you were wondering, New York Bulls also don’t feature here because the MLS team is also based in the Garden State. Thankfully, the New York City FC soccer team is based right here in the Empire State!
Now all you need is to sign up with your favourite operator. If you don’t have one in mind, then we recommend you take a look at the iconic Caesars New York sportsbook, which has an equally iconic bonus up for grabs, or pay a visit to DraftKings NY, which is also licensed to offer esports alongside standard sports betting.
