New Jersey’s legal online sportsbooks to bet on the NBA in-game
In the state of New Jersey, there are two online sportsbooks that allow you to place in-game bets on basketball games, DraftKings and FanDuel. The action at the NBA is truly fast paced. So, being able to bet in-game is a major bonus.
DraftKings operates a mobile betting platform that, besides offering in-game betting options, helps you avoid unexpected losses by letting you cash out your winnings instantly at any point of the game.
In addition to offering players the opportunity to bet online, FanDuel also has a physical location where you can bet on the major basketball league in-game, the Meadowlands Racetrack.
The land-based establishment is one of the eight casinos or tracks in New Jersey with both physical and online sports betting options.
SugarHouse is the online sportsbook of the Golden Nugget Casino, arguably the best gambling house in New Jersey in terms of top-quality online wagering options. It offers in-game bets across different sports leagues. However, it does not do so for NBA.
Golden Nugget’s owner, Tilman Fertitta, also owns the Houston Rockets, which creates a conflict of interest that prevents the casino and its online platform to make NBA bets available.
Still, here is what you should know about SugarHouse. It is a mobile app for Android and iOS. It acts not only as a sportsbook, but also as Golden Nugget’s online casino, with countless excellent games.
Futures betting allows you to wager on the team you predict will win a future competition. For example, you can place a futures bet on the NBA finals.
All eight casinos and tracks that have markets for land-based and online betting in the state of New Jersey offer these bets.
