More Casinos to Allow Sports Betting in Washington State

The growing popularity of sports betting in Washington has been awesome to see, as the numbers keep on increasing. Ever since it was announced that people could make bets in person and online, people have been checking out the odds through the best rated sportsbooks with consistency and making their way to tribal casinos. Now, more casinos to allow sports betting in Washington state is great to hear.

Late last month, it was announced that three new tribal casinos will be opening their doors for sports betting to be allowed. With this, it’s allowing for even more people to take advantage of the sports betting laws. It’s been revealed that the doors will be opening for betting at the 12 Tribes Lake Chelan Casino in Manson, the 12 Tribes Coulee Dam Casino in Coulee Dam, and the 12 Tribes Omak Casino Hotel.

“Thanks to IGT we feel confident in our ability to provide our guests with an exciting and secure sports betting environment, and we look forward to opening our doors to sports enthusiasts soon,” 12 Tribes Colville Casinos COO Tony Posey said in a press release on the announcement of the three new casinos opening for betting.

As you might have been able to guess, people have been incredibly excited with this new announcement. Despite these locations not being too close to Seattle, the biggest city in the state, it’s still close enough where people can drive over if they wish and plan their vacations accordingly. Again, this is big news for the state and thousands of people can’t wait for the doors to open.

Betting on the Seattle Mariners continues to be on the rise

In recent months, betting on the Seattle Mariners continues to be on the rise for sports fans out there. entering the year, fans were hoping that Seattle would be able to push for a postseason berth. Seattle hasn’t been to the MLB playoffs since 2001 and they had high MLB odds leading up to the first pitch of the season.

Their odds have dropped a little bit, but Seattle has been able to heat up lately, which has been great to see. In order for the Mariners to make it to the postseason, they’re going to have to heat up even more and be sure to record plenty of strong wins over the summer months. People have a strong belief that they’ll be able to get this done.

Not only that, but center fielder Julio Rodriguez is starting to live up to the hype in a massive way. Rodriguez was on a tear in May, taking home AL Rookie of the Month honors. Now, he’s among the favorites to win AL Rookie of the Year. This would be a massive honor for J-Rod and people think he’ll get that job done.

The bets on Rodriguez to win Rookie of the Year have also been increasing. This is only going to keep on going up as the season progresses. If things are able to go down where the Mariners make the playoffs and Rodriguez takes home AL Rookie of the Year honors, people all over the state of Washington would lose their minds. Only time will tell if this all goes down or not.

Seahawks don’t have strong NFC West odds this year

What isn’t good for Washington bettors this year is that the Seahawks don’t have strong NFC West odds this year, as the experts aren’t expecting much of the team now that Russell Wilson is no longer suiting up for them. Wilson was traded to the Denver Broncos is one of the biggest moves of the offseason, as the QB was ready for a change. He’s gotten his wish with a move to the AFC West.

With that, it’s looking like either Geno Smith or Drew Lock will take over as the team’s starting quarterback. Neither guy inspires a whole ton of excitement. There’s been plenty of reports and rumors stating that Seattle could end up trading for former No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield, but things are totally up in the air there.

Regardless of that, the Seahawks hold the worst NFC West NFL odds right now, as they’re behind the Rams, 49ers and Cardinals. This isn’t a shocker at all. LA also has high Super Bowl odds, as the team looks poised to try and repeat as the champs. Los Angeles lost Von Miller in free agency, but they were able to sign former Seahawk Bobby Wagner. That was a massive move by LA and their fans are excited.

Meanwhile for the 49ers, all signs are pointing to the team moving forward with Trey Lance as their new starting quarterback. Lance was a first-round pick last year and he is yet to really take off in showing his abilities. Bets are coming in strong on the Rams and 49ers. Once the season arrives, Seattle will hope to silence all of its haters, but it could turn out to be a long season for Pete Carroll and Co.
