Everything you need to know about Nevada sports betting and legal online sports betting in NE, with free bet offers & promo codes

With sports betting becoming more and more mainstream, it seems like every week a new state is passing legislation to legalize betting within state lines. This is going to be a rapidly evolving space, which is why we are making sure you have all the information you need regardless of where you live. We have broken down the betting landscape for all 50 states so that you can find out if your state has any legalized betting, or where they are at in the process. Keep in mind this is a fluid situation that will be changing on the fly as more and more states decide to enter the sports betting landscape. Let’s get into everything you need to know about Nevada sports betting and online sports betting apps in NV as well as a few promo codes.

1) Is Nevada sports betting legal?

Sports betting has been legal in Nevada since 1949. Until recently, Nevada was the only state with legal sports betting. Las Vegas has been world renown for decades as “Sin City” and the place to be for legal wagering on sports. We know about the strip which is the center of where most of the gambling takes place, but as you get further out you have a ton of smaller establishments.

With the emergence of online betting more and more Nevada residents will be able to place wagers from the comfort of their home without having to travel down to the local casino or head for the big time places on the strip.

2) Is NV sports betting also legal online? What About Nevada Sports Betting Apps?

Mobile betting is also legal in Nevada, as long as you are physically in the state. Some of the top mobile apps are William Hill, Wynn, CG Technology, Station Casino, Boyd, South Point, MGM and Atlantis Reno. Mobile accounts must be created in person at a casino.

Since Nevada has a long history of sports betting, some of the new players, such as DraftKings and FanDuel, aren’t going to be able to gain market share if they ever do enter the fray. DFS is currently not legal in NV, and that is in large part to due with casinos trying to protect their interests.

4) What Sportsbooks and Online Sports Betting Apps are available in NV?

There are not separate sports betting websites in Nevada outside of the mobile apps that are associated with different casinos. Again, this state is unique in the sense they’ve had betting entrenched for decades so new implementation was not needed. The drawback is some of the more innovated companies that are just entering the market are not as incentivized to go to NV with all the competition they will face. Still you clearly have unlimited options if you are a resident, or if you are just visiting Las Vegas or Reno on vacation.

6) How Do I Make Deposits and Withdrawals for Online Sports Betting in NV?

While Nevada has been the sports betting destination for over a half century, they have not mastered mobile sports betting, to say the least. Depositing and withdrawing money to and from your account in Nevada is a bit inconvenient. You must go to the casino affiliated to with your book, in most cases. The other option only applies if you play with the William Hill app. In this case, you can go to various kiosks located around the Las Vegas strip and state.

7) What are the Most Common Types of Sports Bets Can I Make in Nevada?

Straight bet

This is the most common bet type and it is just a straight up single bet on a game. A point spread is determined by the oddsmakers with one team being favored by a certain amount of points. Let’s take a look at an example line below to give a clear indication of what a straight bet would be:

Boston Celtics -6.5 (-110), moneyline -320

at Cleveland Cavaliers +6.5 (-110), moneyline +260

O/U 206

The Celtics are favored by 6.5 points in this example. This means that if you bet the Cavaliers, you are getting 6.5 points, so if the Cavaliers win the game, or lose by fewer than seven points, you will win the bet because of your 6.5-point cushion. On the other side, when you are laying 6.5 points as the favorite, you would need the Celtics to win by seven or more to win the bet.

Final Score: Celtics 102 Cavaliers 98. Cavaliers would cover even though the Celtics won the game because the +6.5 point spread is enough to cover a four-point defeat.

Moneyline Bet

The moneyline is a bet where there is no spread; you are just picking the winner of the game. In the example above, the Cavaliers ML is +260, which means that for every $100 wagered, you win $260 if the Cavaliers win the game outright. They receive the plus side of the moneyline since they are the underdog and picking them rewards you with nice odds since they are projected to likely lose the game. On the flip side, if you bet the Celtics ML at -320, you have to bet $320 to win $100. They are the favorites so if you decide to bet the moneyline instead of the point spread, you are forced to bet additional money to win $100.

In the example above, the Celtics ML would be the winner as they won the game outright. The spread is irrelevant for a moneyline wager.

Over/Under

This is a straight bet wagering on how many total combined points will be scored in a game by both teams. For example, an NBA game may have an over/under of 210 points, which means that the oddsmakers are projecting a combined points total of 210 between the two teams. If you think the teams are going to score more than 210 points total, you bet the over, and conversely, if you think it’s going to be a defensive struggle, you can bet the under hoping that the total points scored equals 209 points or less.

Parlay

A parlay is a bet where you combine multiple bets into one bet and you get increased odds because you only win your parlay wager if all of your bets win. If you do a three-team parlay, you select three different teams from three different games and if you win all three of the bets you hit your parlay for longshot odds (6-1 so $100 to win $600). Going 0/3, 1/3, or 2/3 is all the same and you lose the parlay bet. It’s all or nothing which makes them tough to hit and is more of a home run type bet than a regular straight bet since there’s a chance for a big payoff.

9) What are the Most Popular Sports Teams to Bet on in NV?

With Las Vegas being the Mecca of sports betting, there are plenty of bets placed on all teams. However, there are some local teams that will continue to grow as popular bets. For college sports, UNLV is the state’s most relevant and popular school to bet on.

Recently, professional sports have come to the state of Nevada. The Las Vegas Golden Knights brought professional hockey to the state in 2017 and the Las Vegas Aces brought WNBA in 2018, while the Raiders made the move from Oakland in 2020.

Aside from teams from within state lines, California teams are also popular bets in Nevada, since Las Vegas is about 40 miles from California’s border. Los Angeles professional teams, such as the Rams, Chargers, Lakers, Clippers, Dodgers, Angels, Kings, Ducks, Sparks and Galaxy are all popular bets in Nevada.
