Types Of Bets Taken At FanDuel Sportsbook In Arizona

The FanDuel retail location takes the same types of bets as they do on its app including moneyline bets, futures bets, and more. The only restriction is that Arizona doesn’t allow prop bets on college games.

Moneyline Bets

Moneyline bets are also known as straight bets. This is when you simply pick the winner of the game. Points have no impact on the game, as long as you pick who will win, you will win!

Over/Under Bets

Over/under bets is when you pick if the total number of points in the game will go over or under the number listed by the sportsbook. For example, if FanDuel lists the total number as 112 in a Phoenix Suns game, you can bet on whether or not the total number of points scored by both teams will be under or over 112.

Points Spread Bets

Points spread betting is a little different than betting on the moneyline. You can either wager for the underdog team to win or lose by less than the given amount of points. Or you could wager on the favorite to win by more than the certain amount of points given.

Futures Bets

Bettors at FanDuel can also place bets on future games or events. Meaning, you can wager on who you think will win the Super Bowl anytime throughout the season or which team will win the NBA Finals.

Prop Bets

Proposition bets allow you to bet on the game without having to choose who wins. A prop bet is when you bet on whether a specific event will take place in the game.

Examples of prop bets:

  • If a certain basketball player hits a triple-double in a game
  • If a certain football player scores a touchdown in the game
  • If a certain baseball player will end the game with a certain number of hits

Prop bets are not allowed on college games in Arizona.

Parlay Bets

Parlay bets are popular, especially in football games. A parlay bet can be on the moneyline, points spread, prop bets, or totals depending on what’s offered by the sportsbook.

These bets include multiple picks on at least 2 or more different sporting events. Single-game parlays are also available, which is when you bet on 2 or more different events (such as who scores first or who is leading by the half) to happen in a single game.

Arizona Sports Betting Guide

Sports betting in Arizona is already a success and we expect it to become even more successful in the coming year as new apps and more retail sportsbooks launch. Arizona is home to every major sporting event making it a sports paradise.

The 3 Most Popular Sports For Sports Bettors In Arizona

Football

Just like in pretty much every other legal betting state, football is the most popular sport for sports bettors in Arizona. The Arizona Cardinals is the state’s professional football team and draws in football fans from all over. The Cardinals have never won a Super Bowl, but that doesn’t stop them from being one of the biggest teams to bet on. Not only is the NFL popular to bet on, but so is college football. Especially in Arizona who is home to two different Pac-12 teams, the Arizona State Sun Devils and the University of Arizona Wildcats.

Basketball

Basketball is another popular sport to bet on in Arizona. The NBA has many games throughout the season and there is usually at least one NBA game every day during the season. Arizona’s NBA team is the Phoenix Suns, which have been one of the biggest names in the NBA. Even though they have yet to win a championship, some big-name players have graced the Suns’ court. From Charles Barkley to Steve Nash and Shaq, now Chris Paul and Devin Booker are the all-stars on the team. The Suns are looking to make it back to the NBA Finals again this year and if that is the case, they will be one of the top NBA teams to bet on. Especially with a FanDuel sportsbook located right inside the Suns’ arena.

Baseball

The Arizona Diamondbacks have won a World Series, but that was 20 years ago. Since then, they haven’t done much, but baseball in Arizona still continues to be a top sport to bet on. Arizona sports betting launched just at the end of the season, so bettors didn’t get a chance to bet much on the Arizona Diamondbacks. But the playoffs are a different story. Arizona bettors can still bet on the World Series even though the home team isn’t in it this year.

Arizona is also home to Spring Training every March. This brings in baseball fans from all over the country. And some sportsbooks even allow betting on Spring Training games.

Is It Legal To Bet On Sports Outside Of Legal Sportsbooks In Arizona

No. Sports betting is not legal outside of the approved and licensed sportsbooks. Offshore or illegal sportsbooks in Arizona should not be used. These sportsbooks do not have good digital security, putting your personal information at risk. Also, the odds and betting lines offered by these sportsbooks are usually not player-friendly.
