With more and more states getting into the action with sports betting, people in Oregon may be wondering “Where can I get involved with all this sweet sports betting I’ve heard so much about?” Oregon online sports betting became legal in August of 2019. Here are some of the details you need to know before betting in Oregon.
1) Is Oregon sports betting legal?
Yes! Sports betting became legal in Oregon during August of 2019, initially starting online. One money later, the first in-person sportsbook opened up at the Chinook Winds tribal gaming facility.
Oregon sports betting is interesting because there is just one in-person location and one online sportsbook for bettors to choose from, with the Oregon Lottery Scorebook app having the online sports betting monopoly in the state.
2) Is Oregon sports betting also legal online?
Yes! As stated above, the Oregon Lottery has the online sports betting monopoly, with their Scorebook app. The app is geo-tracked, so you will be unable to use The Scoreboard app outside of Oregon. Anyone traveling to Oregon is able to use the app, as you don’t need to be an Oregon citizen.
3) What Promo Codes / Deposit Bonuses are available for me and How Can I Use Them?

4) What Sportsbooks and Online Sports Betting Apps are available in Oregon?
The only legal online sports betting option for Oregon bettors is the Scoreboard app from the Oregon Lottery.
5) Where Can I Bet on Sports in Person in Oregon?
To go along with online sports gambling, you are able to bet at tribal casinos in Oregon. This includes slots and cards games as well. They also have instant lottery tickets as well as video lotteries in Oregon, so the gambling options plenty in Oregon. Citizens can also gamble on horse racing in Oregon.
Currently, the only sportsbook that allows retail sports betting is Chinook Winds, a tribal casino.
6) How Do I Make Deposits and Withdrawals for Online Sports Betting in OR?
Since Oregon has just the one online sportsbook, bettors are stuck with only their methods of depositing and withdrawing funds, which include online banking, Mastercard/Visa and Play+.
7) What are the Most Common Types of Sports Bets Can I Make in Oregon?
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

However, the NFL continues to be the top sport to bet on in America, making the Seattle Seahawks are popular team to bet on in Oregon, due to their state’s proximity to Washington.
