Live Sportsbooks In Arizona

Sports betting has been live in Arizona since September 2021 so we’re starting to see more retail sportsbook options across the state. Because the casinos and sports venues with sportsbook partnerships have to build new space or renovate current space, retail sportsbooks are slower to open. Many locations have temporary setups utilizing self-serve betting kiosks until offerings are expanded.

Caesars Sportsbook is expected to open its brand new 20,000 square foot venue at Chase Field in the coming weeks.

    Legal Sports Betting In Arizona

    Retail sportsbooks are allowed to open at racing arenas or sports venues, such as the Phoenix Raceway (home of some of the most popular NASCAR and IndyCar races). Native American casinos have also been approved to house retail sportsbooks. Arizona does not have any commercial retail casinos.

    Online sportsbooks are available as well. Practically all types of sports wagers are offered on these apps, including wagers on college games and college bowl games (even those involving in-state collegiate teams). There’s one minor restriction; Arizona sports bettors are not allowed to place prop bets on collegiate sporting events no matter which teams are involved.

    The Types Of Bets Taken At Sportsbooks In Arizona

    Now that mobile and retail sportsbooks are currently launching in Arizona, bettors can place a wide variety of bets with only one limitation (mentioned above).

    Moneyline

    Moneyline bets are the most common type of wager you can place on a sportsbook. These wagers involve betting on which team will win a match, plain and simple. Potential payouts/odds are a little higher for the underdog and are represented by a “+” symbol while payouts/odds for the favorite team to win are usually lower and are represented by a “-“ symbol.

    Futures

    Futures bets at Arizona sportsbooks involve wagering on future events, such as the outcomes of tournaments or World Series. These bets are popular for major league championships, like March Madness bets, Super Bowl bets, or MLB World Series bets.

    Prop Bets

    Prop or proposition bets are a popular wager type, especially for casual sports wagerers. With proposition bets, you don’t have to bet on which team will win a given match or how many points they will score.

    You instead wager on whether a specific event will occur. Prop bets can be flexible and unique for this reason. For example, some prop bets might involve wagering on:

    • Whether a baseball player will score a home run
    • Whether a basketball player will score a three-pointer 
    • Whether a football player will make a touchdown

    However, while prop bets are allowed for all sports at Arizona sportsbooks, you can’t place prop bets on any college games. This is just a minor downside as other states with legal sports betting industries, like New Jersey, have banned collegiate sports wagering entirely.

    Spread Bets

    Spread bets involve “betting the spread” or betting that an underdog team will lose by less than a given amount of points or win a game, or by betting that a favorite team will win the game by more than a certain number of points.

    Over/Under Bets

    Over/under bets involve betting on how many points will be scored in a single game between both teams. Bettors can wager that there will be more or less than the set amount of points given by the betting line.

    Parlay Bets

    Most Arizona sportsbooks allow you to place parlay bets. These are sequential bets that involve multiple successive wagers. If you want to win a parlay bet, you have to win every leg of the bet (get multiple wagers right in a row).

    Arizona Sports Betting Guide

    Arizona’s sports betting industry is expected to excel since the official launch. Here are some of the major things to keep in mind when preparing your bets.

    Arizona Sports Betting Timeline

    The first real legislation set to legalize sports wagering in Arizona came in 2019. However, there was significant opposition from Native American tribes in the state, which stalled progress on a prospective bill.

    Discussion on sports wagering came to a standstill until the coronavirus pandemic. When this occurred, Arizona lost a ton of state revenue (as did many other states), but Arizona was particularly affected since travel and tourism have historically been big revenue sources for the state government.

    As a result, various state leaders and Gov. Doug Ducey decided to look for new potential revenue streams. Sports wagering gained new importance as a result.

    Sports betting legislation was nonetheless stuck in committee discussions until March 2021, when renewed legislative pushes brought sports wagering legalization to the forefront of debates. Eventually, both HB 2772 and SB 1797 were passed by Gov. Doug Ducey on April 15, 2021.

    Furthermore, the Arizona tribes and state government reached a new compact in May 2021, removing the last bit of legislative roadblocks in the way to sports wagering legalization.

    State regulators announced which sportsbooks would be coming to Arizona in August and sports betting officially launched just in time for football season.

    3 Most Popular Sports For Sports Bettors In Arizona

    Arizona has several major professional sports franchises that call it home. The most popular sports in Arizona by far are baseball, basketball, and football, with the latter being especially important for Arizona residents.

    Arizona’s MLB team, the Arizona Diamondbacks, was established in 1998. The Phoenix Suns, Arizona’s NBA team, was founded in 1968. The Arizona Cardinals, the state’s NFL team, has called Arizona home since 1988. Each of these sports teams has its own collection of fans and a dedicated sporting arena where they play their home games.

    Each of these major arenas will host a retail sportsbook. Depending on the sportsbook you choose to download, you may be able to enjoy special promotions or bonus betting opportunities during a given team’s major sports season.

    DraftKings and BetMGM both provide phenomenal betting markets, player-friendly odds, and excellent opening bonuses that can provide new players with site credit or risk-free bet coverage. Both of these apps also have excellent interfaces and regular promotions to drive engaging wagers throughout most sports seasons.

    Caesars also joins Arizona’s sports wagering industry. It is another big player in the online sports betting scene. It includes a generous opening bonus, an excellent app optimized for mobile use, and live or in-play betting for all of its users.
