Louisiana Fantasy Sports & Sports Betting Overview
At one point in 2019 it seemed like a mere formality that 2020 would see the launch of Louisiana sports books at the state’s casinos and race tracks. It took a bit longer, with retail sports betting launching Oct. 31, 2021. Now LA online sports betting is full go, having launched Jan. 28, 2022! Here are the five things you need to know about Louisiana sports betting and LA online sports betting apps.
Is Louisiana Sports Betting Legal?
Yes! Voters decided in November 2020 to approve LA sports betting in 55 of the state’s 64 parishes. However, Louisiana sports betting officially launched on Halloween 2021. It allowed for retail sports betting, meaning in-person sports betting at one of the allowed parishes.
Louisiana online sports betting officially went live on January 28, 2022. Now users can create their mobile sports betting accounts and place bets anywhere within state lines. With a number of popular sports teams and passionate fans within Louisiana, this is a great state for sports betting.

What are the Most Common Types of Bets I Can Make in Louisiana?
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 number 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.
