New York Sports Betting Made History by Reaching a $25 Billion Handle

Things really have never been better when it comes to New York sports betting news. Time and time again, New York posts the top sports betting numbers in the USA. It’s hard to believe that it’s been less than two years since things were officially launched in the state, but needless to say, things have been a smashing success. As you might have been able to guess, online wagers have led the way. With that said, New York sports betting made history by a reaching $25 billion betting handle.

Not only that, but New York has become the state to record this number at the fastest rate. This only proves how incredible this sports betting project has been for everyone involved. New York worked tirelessly to get sports betting approved, but things finally were able to get going not long ago. That’s why the $25 billion milestone being hit is being celebrated by lawmakers and officials.

In recent months, we’ve seen some outstanding numbers being posted for the state, with New York indeed being ranked No. 1 across the board for the USA. For the spring months, this makes a ton of sense, as plenty of attention has been placed on both the New York Yankees and New York Mets. When it comes to the MLB betting odds, these two teams are always going to have their odds checked by baseball fans.

In April alone, New York recorded epic stats for sports betting. The same was followed up in May and there’s no doubt in our minds that June, July and August will also be fantastic. With the All-Star break here for the major leagues, this also means that a lot of bets will come in on the Home-Run Derby, the ASG and much more. With that, even more big-time bets will be coming on for the state. All is well for New York, folks.

Next quarter will be massive for New York betting thanks to the NFL

Looking ahead to the future, next quarter will be massive for New York betting thanks to the NFL. Later this month, training camps are going to start up across the league. For football fans in the New York area, this means they’re of course going to be focused on the New York Giants, New York Jets and Buffalo Bills. All three squads have had memorable offseasons and they’ll be ready to make noise once Week 1 arrives.

Starting up with the Giants, all eyes will be on Daniel Jones this campaign after he signed his four-year, $160 million extension. Not only that, but the G-Men also brought in tight end Darren Waller, signed star linebacker Bobby Okereke and drafted cornerback Deonte Banks in the first round. After going 9-7-1 last season and ending their postseason drought, the Giants are ready to take a step forward in 2023.

As for the Jets, trading for Aaron Rodgers is still being talked about. With Rodgers now in East Rutherford, fans have been checking the Jets’ Super Bowl betting odds consistently in recent weeks. Rodgers completely changes things for this squad on offense. It has been years since Gang Green had a stud quarterback running the show. With Rodgers now in town, it changes everything for this squad.

Last but not least, it could be a year to remember for the Buffalo Bills. Will this be the year where Josh Allen is able to help this team bring home the Lombardi Trophy? That’s what people in upstate New York are hoping for, as Buffalo has fallen short of their goals in recent years. Now, though, we’ll find out soon enough if Allen, Stefon Diggs and Co. can take down the Kansas City Chiefs/Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC.

The Women’s World Cup should be strong for NY betting too

Later this month as well, the women’s World Cup should be strong for NY betting too. New York City alone is one of the biggest cities when it comes to soccer support. The surrounding areas are also looking forward to the women’s World Cup getting here, especially with team USA hoping to three-peat. The U.S. is among the favorites to win it all this summer, though England is ready to try and get the job done too.

Soccer betting is always going to be strong in the state. When the men’s World Cup arrives in the fall of 2022, people were quick to show love to Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal, while also placing plenty of bets on Lionel Messi and Argentina. As we all know by now, Messi and Argentina were able to get the job done and take down France in a thrilling final.

With the women’s World Cup, you already know that countless bets are going to be placed on the red, white and blue. With this, we should see massive July betting numbers for New York. Things should also trickle into August as well. This is great news for the state. We can’t wait to see what the July betting handle will turn out to be.
