About Sports Betting

In May 2018, the Supreme Court overturned the federal ban on sports wagering in the United States. Since then, the accessibility of legal sportsbooks, both online and in brick-and-mortar lounges has been rapidly increasing. Though each State/territory has slightly different laws, the types of legal sports betting primarily fall into two categories: retail or online. Las Vegas has been the sports betting mecca in the United States, but other States are starting to catch up, with over a dozen now allowing legal sports betting – including Illinois.

If you have never partaken in sports betting before, there’s no need to worry! We have created an easy to understand terms and glossary site for players. Here players can learn more about classic sports betting terms like “chalk,” “cover,” and “field.” We also go into explanations on terms like “contrarian bet,” “against the spread,” and “grand salami.” Want to study up on your sports betting knowledge?
