New England has spent decades as a force to be reckoned with in the sports world and New Hampshire sports betting is no exception. On July 12, 2019 New Hampshire became the 16th state to legalize sports betting.
Unlike many states with draconian rules or power brokers throwing hurdles at consumers, New Hampshire sports betting is as simple as can be. The state turned to fellow New England-based company DraftKings after an open betting process and made their DK Sportsbook into New Hampshire’s official betting option.
1) Is Sports Betting Legal in New Hampshire?
Governor Chris Sununu signed H 480 into law last July, legalizing and regulating sports betting in New Hampshire.
Thanks to the ease of use of DK Sportsbook, New Hampshire online betting is available anywhere within state borders. However, users will be unable to wager on college sports games involving in-state teams. But every other sport and legal bet type will be available within the state on DK Sportsbook.
In return for the company’s role as exclusive provider of New Hampshire online betting, DraftKings agreed to give 50% of all adjusted revenue back to the state. The only restriction placed on people who seek New Hampshire online betting on DK Sportsbook is that they have to be 18 years or older and within the state lines.
2) Is NH sports betting also legal online?
Yes! In fact, it’s New Hampshire sports betting is ONLY available online. In-state bettors can enjoy DraftKings Sportsbook from the comfort of their own bed, if they wish.
As long as you are within state lines, are at least 18 years old and have a valid social security number, you can enjoy online sports betting.
3) What Promo Codes / Deposit Bonuses are available for me and How Can I Use Them?
Update coming shortly
4) What Sportsbooks and Online Sports Betting Apps are available in New Hampshire?
New Hampshire sports betting hit the public at end of 2019 and ensured that it’ll be available to generate revenue for the state as other states’ legalization processes are hung up by the COVID-19 pandemic. Early returns have looked good for the state as they’ve also siphoned off users from Massachusetts, thanks to their lack of legal sports betting options and reported nearly 35,000 active users shortly after launch. Their single-operator model with DK Sportsbook could end up one that other states follow to similar successes, a potential win for legal sports betting across the country.
5) Where Can I Bet on Sports in Person in NH?
New Hampshire sports betting is unique, in that sports betting within the state is only available online. This means that there are no in-person establishments for you to go, by DraftKings Sportsbook can be accessed anywhere within state lines.
6) How Do I Make Deposits and Withdrawals for Online Sports Betting in New Hampshire?
DraftKings Sportsbook is among the most user-friendly sportsbooks available right now, which means it is easy and convenient to use.
DraftKings offers a ton of reliable, convenient methods of depositing in New Hampshire:
- Credit/Debit Card
- Wire Transfer
- ACH/Bank Transfer
- Cash at various businesses
7) What are the Most Common Types of Sports Bets Can I Make in NH?
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.
8) Where’s a Good Place to Start Learning How to Online Sports Bet in New Hampshire?
Update coming shortly.
9) What are the Most Popular Sports Teams to Bet on in NH?
There are no professional sports teams in New Hampshire and bettors are not allowed to wager on in-state college teams, so New Hampshire sports bettors will likely gravitate to the popular professional teams in the New England area, like the New England Patriots, Boston Celtics, Boston Red Sox and Boston Bruins.
