Pennsylvania allows betting on college and professional sports with very few restrictions. This means fans of almost any team can place a bet. If you’re a New York expat, you can bet on the Giants, Jets, Mets…any New York team. But if you’re a tried-and-true PA sports fan, you’re also covered with all of your home teams.
NFL: Steelers And Eagles
Pennsylvania has two NFL teams. Great news for bettors! PA sportsbooks have heaps of lines and markets for NFL bettors. You’ll find all sorts of available bets on the Eagles or Steelers, including the standard moneyline, totals, and points spreads. You’ll also get a veritable smorgasbord of prop bets and alternate lines.
The NFL is one of the biggest betting leagues in all of sports, so you’ll always find the perfect bet for you if you’re a PA football fan.
NHL: Penguins And Flyers
The NHL has two Pennsylvania-based teams: The Pittsburgh Penguins and the Philadelphia Flyers. You can bet on both teams, or any other team in the NHL for that matter.
Hockey is a fun betting sport because it’s unpredictable. A mismatched contest can lead to a surprising game. Live betting is popular among hockey fans because it’s a low-scoring sport that lends itself well to the format.
MLB: Phillies And Pirates
Baseball is in season as of this writing, and any Pennsylvania sportsbook worth its salt has a ton of MLB lines. Whether you’re a Pirates fan, a Phillies fanatic, or just a casual fan of America’ spastime, you can find plenty to bet on when it comes to baseball.
Baseball has moneylines, totals, and spreads like any other sport, but it’s incredibly deep with regard to props. Pennsylvania sportsbooks will offer seemingly countless prop bets on any given game, including those containing the Pirates or the Phillies.
Basketball is the only big four sport for which Pennsylvania doesn’t have two teams. The 76ers are all PA’s got in terms of NBA teams, and sportsbooks have bets on the 76ers in droves.
You can place all sorts of bets on the 76ers, including moneyline, totals, spreads, and tons of props. Basketball is a stats-heavy sport, so it’s ideal for same-game parlays and similar bets.
NCAA: Penn State And Others
Unlike its neighbour and biggest competitor, New Jersey, Pennsylvania doesn’t restrict college sports betting. This means you can bet on the Penn State Nittany Lions or any other college team in the state as you wish. When March Madness rolls around, you can place bets on the tournament and hope for a PA school to take the trophy.
MLS: Philadelphia Union
Soccer is incredibly popular with overseas bettors, but there’s plenty on offer for US bettors, too. Philadelphia Union fans can place bets on the team at Pennsylvania sportsbooks.
