How Can I Bet In New York Online?

While New Yorkers have had access to in-person sports betting at casinos within the state since 2019, this is a seismic shift for residents of New York City and the surrounding areas who often found themselves crossing the border into New Jersey or Connecticut to legally place wagers.

Four major sportsbook operators will be allowed to open up shop in New York on Saturday:

In November, the New York State Gaming Commission granted licenses to five additional sportsbook operators. However, since Caesars, Rush Street Interactive, FanDuel, and DraftKings already had established partnerships with various New York casinos, they get primary access to the market.

Buffalo Bills & NFL Playoffs Betting 2022

The newly legalized ability to bet NFL playoffs and Super Bowl 56 is truly a welcome bonus for 2022 New York sports bettors.

One of the groups most ecstatic will be fans of the NFL Playoff-bound Buffalo Bills.

Ahead of their playoff charge, the Bills also made their sportsbook allegiance public on Thursday afternoon, announcing a partnership with FanDuel Sportsbook shortly after the online sports betting news trickled in.

Josh Allen will lead the AFC East title contenders, as they will have the opportunity to back their team in the upcoming NFL Playoffs and possibly as soon as Sunday’s Week 18 divisional showdown with the New York Jets.

  • The Bills’ current odds to win Super Bowl 56 at NY’s incoming sportsbooks are (+800) at Caesars and BetRivers. Double-check these upcoming New York sportsbook odds for any changes that might occur.

NFL Betting News

  • Early money slightly leaning towards the over in the 49ers-Rams matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the over/under for the NFC Championship Game matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 46 points has attracted 55% of the bets and 60% of the money thus far. Much moreso than the AFC Championship Game, the betting splits on the point spread and total in this game are much more evenly split, so the sportsbook does not have too much liability on either at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Los Angeles's -170 moneyline odds have attracted 60% of the bets and 70% of the money.

  • Early bettors give slight lean to the Rams over the 49ers

    Based on the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook, the favored Los Angeles Rams are getting slightly more betting attention in their matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Los Angeles's -3.5 point spread has received 65% of the bets and 61% of the handle thus far. Bettors are clearly torn in this matchup considering the Rams have arguably been playing better football through the first two playoff games, while the 49ers have won six consecutive games against the Rams, including a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory in Los Angeles.

  • Early money more than 4/1 on the over in the Bengals-Chiefs matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's over/under in the matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 54.5 points has attracted 75% of the bets and 85% of the money thus far. At this point, the sportsbook has big liability to the Chiefs point spread and the over in this matchup, as their most ideal scenario would be a Bengals cover in a low-scoring game at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Kansas City's -335 moneyline odds have attracted 58% of the bets and 61% of the money.

    CIN vs. KC Game Page

  • Early money 3/1 on the Chiefs over the Bengals

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs, as the majority of the action is backing the favored Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Kansas City's -7 point spread has received 61% of the bets and 76% of the handle thus far. Cincinnati is shaping up to be the biggest need of any side or any total this weekend, as the public seems to be enamored with the Chiefs after their thrilling Divisional Round win over Buffalo.

  • 49ers-Rams over/under reaches lowest number of the week

    After another line movement, the over/under for the NFC Championship matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams has reached its lowest total of the week.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the 49ers-Rams over/under on Sunday night was posted at 47.5 points. It was quickly bet down to 46.5 in less than 24 hours. However, it has once again moved toward the under, and now currently sits at 46 points. Given that there has not yet been buyback on the over, it is extremely unlikely we see the total get back to anywhere close to the 47.5 points it opened at.
