New York sports betting launched in the Empire State in January of 2022, ushering in one of the top betting markets in the USA today.

The day New York sports bettors have been patiently waiting (for years) arrived with incredible excitement. And, to nobody’s surprise, legal New York sports betting already shattered many handle and revenue records.

The legalization of NY sports betting means the introduction of several NY online sportsbook apps, featuring DraftKings, Caesars, FanDuel, BetMGM and BetRivers. Take advantage of the current sign-up bonuses for each (links above).

Though the 5 above are the sportsbooks that ESNY recommends for the NY sports bettor, there are currently 9 sportsbooks live in the Empire State.

You can find 8 of the 9 below, as well as more information regarding the top available sportsbooks in New York today. Fanatics recently launched in New York, taking over for PointsBet in late 2023.

DraftKings is one of the best online sportsbooks in existence, and it’s ESNY’s preferred mobile sports betting app.

Why? Well, to start, if you know nothing about sports betting you’ve probably still heard about DraftKings. The sportsbook giant is known for its vast catalog of betting markets, lines and competitive odds that make it the monster it is today. The app itself looks great and runs smoothly with no glitches.

DraftKings is good for both beginners and veteran sports bettors. It requires just a $5 deposit, lower than any other book on this list. It doesn’t hurt that new bettors get a No-Sweat Bet up to $1.5K for signing up, too.

As with all sportsbooks, there are a few things to consider before signing up. For starters, navigation around the homepage to find the *exact* line you’re looking for can be a bit tricky. But there are 2 search bars and a few different horizontal tabs to navigate that become very helpful once you’ve put some time into the app.

2. FanDuel Sportsbook NY

Does FanDuel sportsbook really need an introduction?

The mega-sports company quickly added to its fantasy sports empire by moving into the online sports betting industry. FanDuel Sportsbook is the most popular online sports betting site, usually beating the competition on a regular basis.

It’s the most downloaded sports betting app in America with the best user interface of any app on this list. Its odds are also strong and the app comes with incredible promotions weekly that are tough to match. FanDuel has incredible live betting options and often runs bet boosts that make the user experience truly top notch.

Caesars offers new users a first-bet back bonus up to $1K for signing up today. And unlike some bet back offers, Caesars allows 14 days to use these bonus bets compared to 7 days.

Those who enjoy bet boosts and live betting options will love Caesars. The site looks good and for the most part, navigation is relatively simple and straightforward. We’ll get into some of the negatives of the site’s layout a little down the page.

Caesars’ top variable is its rewards program and exceptional customer service, which are well known across the sports betting industry. Caesars has built its brand on just that.

Back to the layout, which gets a solid C rating. Finding exact lines, futures, prop bets and more can be a little harder than you’d expect, and the app in general has a low rating on the app store due to some performance issues. Finally, odds are not thought to be competitive compared to top industry performers such as DraftKings and FanDuel.

4. BetMGM NY

BetMGM NY is the online sports gambling platform of the famed MGM Resorts and Casinos.

Only Caesars has a better rewards program of the sportsbooks on this list. BetMGM has impeccable live betting options and some of the best in-app promos in the game.

The sportsbook has overhauled its site layout and noticeable improvements have been made. However, BetMGM’s design and user interface could still use some work. Finding the exact line you’re looking for is easier now than it was, but the overall site still seems a little bulky.

BetRivers Sportsbook NY entered the NY online sports market when given the first possible opportunity—on the first day it was possible.

BetRivers, despite not being a giant like some of the other sportsbooks on this list, has surprisingly strong odds and a good layout with exceptional customer service ratings.

Its welcome offer pales in comparison to some others on this list, and the withdrawal process has drawn some complaints.

NY Sports Betting Timeline

Here’s a quick look at a timeline for sports betting in New York:

  • November 2013: Voters approve a resolution calling for the expansion of gaming. Four new commercial casinos were built in designated upstate communities. The law includes a provision that authorizes these facilities to accept sports wagers if the federal ban under PASPA is overturned.
  • The bill does not authorize online sports betting—something that continues to lack in the state to this day.
  • May 2018: PASPA is overturned. NY bureaucrats set up a working regulatory framework for sports betting.
  • January 2019: The New York Gaming Commission releases rules for NY sports betting as authorized and constrained under the 2013 gaming expansion law. These rules remain intact today.
  • July 2019: Upstate New York casinos accept the first wagers. Rivers Sportsbook in Schenectady, the first place in New York state where you can legally place a wager on a sporting event, opened on July 16.
  • Naturally, politicians were the first to place a sports bet. Gary Pretlow, chair of the state Assembly racing and wagering committee, placed a bet on the Seattle Mariners. Schenectady Mayor Gary McCarthy put his faith in the Boston Red Sox.
  • January 2020: New legislation is introduced in the General Assembly that aims to authorize online sports betting. A3294 creates a task force to report on the potential fiscal impacts of New York online sports gambling.
  • April 2021: York lawmakers approve a $212 billion deal that legalizes mobile sports betting. The deal includes an online sports betting plan that closely resembles the former governor’s vision.
  • November 2021: The New York Post reports that a total of nine sportsbooks will win New York online betting licenses. Later, the state commission announced those very same sportsbooks as those that would initially enter the market upon NY online sports betting’s live launch.
  • January 2022: The state announces that NY online sports betting will launch on Saturday, Jan. 8, 2022, at 9 a.m. ET, and that the four sportsbooks that have met regulatory requirements are FanDuel Sportsbook, DraftKings Sportsbook, Caesars Sportsbook and BetRivers.
  • On Jan. 17, 2022, BetMGM NY becomes the fifth mobile sports betting app to join the NY sports betting market.
  • All told, New York online sports betting brought in a ridiculous $63,209,984 in its first month of action (January 2022), shattering records along the way.
  • March 2022: Assemblyman Gary Pretlow introduced a bill amendment that would allow New York to increase the number of approved sportsbooks from nine to no fewer than 14 by 2023, and then no fewer than 16 than by 2024, in the hopes that it would effectively lower the current 51% tax rate.
  • May 2022: Gov. Kathy Hochul announces that New York has generated over $267 million in sports betting since January 2022, according to New York State data, per XL Media’s Robert Linnehan. $263 million of that has been generated from online sports betting.
  • July 2022: Bally Bet becomes the ninth (and last of the initial nine) sportsbook to officially launch in New York (July 7, 2022).
  • November 2022: It is announced that DraftKings and FanDuel have accounted for 67% of all NY online sports betting handle and 72% of its total gross gaming revenue, per ESNY’s Robert Linnehan.
  • December 2022: The nine sportsbooks available in New York took in a total of $429.3 million in bets during just one week (the week ending on Nov. 27). It marks the first time New York’s weekly handle surpassed $400 million for the first time since March 20, 2022 (just over two months post-launch).
  • May 2023: Fanatics Sportsbook agrees to acquire PointsBet assets.
  • January 2023 Now a year into the legal online launch, it’s recognized that New York set industry records for yearly handle ($16.2 billion) and tax revenue ($693 million) in 2022.

New York Sports Teams

New York is a professional sports town unlike any other. Not only do diehard fans have to combat rivals in other cities, but they also have to contend with another fanbase in their own backyard. It’s just part of the reason New York sports fans are so rabid.

New York Giants

The New York Giants are one of the NFL’s classic organizations. One of five teams to join the newly-founded NFL in 1925, the Giants have won their first NFL championship just two years later in 1927.

All told, the Jints have eight championships in the column, including four Super Bowl victories.

While recent Giants teams have not resemble much of the Wellington Mara years, the new regime, led by outstanding head coach Brian Daboll, is intent on establishing the Giants identity of yesteryear.

New York Jets

The New York Jets joined the AFL in 1960 as one of eight original franchises. After watching the Houston Oilers dominate the league early, one man helped and one particular team helped transform an entire league.

After Joe Namath and the 1968 Jets stunned the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl 3, the first step en route to the NFL’s modern era had taken place. No longer would the AFL be viewed as second-rate.

Joe Douglas and the current Jets are taking a value-driven approach with head coach Robert Saleh leading the charge on the field.

New York Knicks

The New York Knicks are the city’s team. If New York is a baseball town, basketball is its heart—the city’s game, and the Knickerbockers carry around a rich tradition.

One of the BAA’s original 11 teams in 1947, as well as one of the NBA’s original 17 franchises in 1949, the Knicks have assembled some of the most beloved teams in city history. The organization’s two NBA titles in the early 1970s endeared further enlightened fans on team basketball, while the early 1990s Knicks decided to wear the city’s workmanlike attitude on their sleeve.

With Julius Randle and Tom Thibodeau now leading the way, the Knicks are trending in the right direction after two decades of futility. Getting in on the action now, before the team becomes a winning certainty, is the sports gambler’s best bet.

Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets are a well-traveled basketball team. Originally named the New Jersey Americans of the ABA in 1967, the first name change happened a year later. The blacktop legend, Julius Erving, otherwise known as Dr. J, led the New York Nets to two ABA titles in the 1970s.

After coming to the NBA in 1977, New Jersey’s team put together tremendous Jason Kidd-led teams at the turn of the century, eventually falling in the NBA Finals twice.

Today, the Brooklyn Nets have as good a shot to capture their first NBA championship as any team in the league. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving have come together to create a scary NBA duo.

What’s to not like about the New York Yankees? Well, that’s sort of a loaded question. After 27 World Series championships, there’s very little gray area here. Baseball fans either love or hate the most successful professional sports franchise in American history.

The organization that embraces its Evil Empire moniker built baseball’s most recent true dynasty in the 1990s. Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, Andy Pettite, the great Mariano Rivera and others rattled off four championships in five years.

Today’s team, led by Aaron Judge, Gerrit Cole and D.J. LeMahieu, is the first Bronx Bombers club to truly be led by a young nucleus—since the dynasty clubs of the 1990s.

New York Mets

The New York Mets joined Major League Baseball in 1962 after the Dodgers and Giants took their act west. Quickly, the Mets developed a ball club the city will never forget. The 1969 Miracle Mets took the organization’s first World Series title home.

In 1986, the Mets knocked off the cursed Boston Red Sox in what probably still is the most suspenseful World Series of all time.

Today’s Mets, under new owner Steve Cohen, recently made a statement with the acquisition of Francisco Lindor.

New York Rangers

The New York Rangers, one of the NHL’s Original Six teams, boasts a hockey tradition unlike any other. After winning three Stanley Cups in their first 14 years of existence, Broadway’s Blueshirts went on one of the longest droughts in professional sports history.

It took Mark Messier, Brian Leetch, Adam Graves and Mike Richter to break the 54-year curse in 1994. Although the wait was long, the payoff hit Manhattan harder than most championships.

Today’s Rangers continue to slowly built towards the future. With youngsters like Adam Fox, Alexis Lafreniere, Kaapo Kakko and Igor Shesterkin, the Blueshirts represent a nice future play for sports bettors.

New York Islanders

The New York Islanders represent a classic NHL organization whose successes reached the highest of highs.

Not only did the upstart Islanders quickly get the better of the rival Rangers, but they also captured four-straight Stanley Cups in the early 1980s. If not for Wayne Gretzky’s dynamite Edmonton Oilers, the Isles could have won even more.

Today’s Islanders, led by mastermind Lou Lamoriello, have already come close to the Stanley Cup Final on a couple of occasions.

New Jersey Devils

Those pesky New Jersey Devils just knew how to win championships. Lou Lamoriello’s work in New Jersey helped erase the “Mickey Mouse” perception No. 99 once bestowed on the young organization.

All told, Martin Brodeur helped lead the Devils to three Stanley Cups in his prime. Not even a Stephane Matteau shot in the heart could keep this defensive-minded, trapping team down.

Today’s Devils are working towards a true rebuild, one led by phenom Jack Hughes.

New York Liberty

One of the WNBA’s eight original teams in 1997, the New York Liberty shot out of a cannon quickly. Rebecca Lobo helped pave the way for the franchise to make four WNBA Finals appearances in the league’s first six years.

Although the Liberty are still searching for their first championship, the team’s prestige remains impressive.

Today’s Liberty are stuck in a bit of a down time, but you better believe they’ll scrap their way as many wins as possible.

New York City FC

New York City FC enjoy playing in front of some of the most rabid fans in New York City. As the other Yankee Stadium team, NYCFC joined the MLS as New York’s “other team” in 2015.

There have been predictable ups and downs, but the city’s beloved “Boys in Blue” continue to produce quality soccer.

Today’s club is celebrating its incredible 2021 MLS Cup championship—the first in franchise history.

New York Red Bulls

They may be called the New York Red Bulls, but they are New Jersey’s soccer club.

Founded in 1996 as one of MLS’s original teams, the New York/New Jersey MetroStars played at Giants Stadium and always entertained fans. In 2006, the team was sold and the Red Bull era was born.

Today’s Red Bulls are building with the hopes of getting back to where they once were.

Buffalo Bills (NFL)

Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills are back. After two decades of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick dominating the AFC East, the NFL’s lone New York State-based football team has won the division in back-to-back seasons.

Josh Allen is a bonafide superstar quarterback and Sean McDermott has built something special. The organization may play its games in an old stadium, located in the middle of nowhere, but the two Metropolitan teams, the New York Jets and New York Giants, can only aspire to get to where the Bills currently are.

Buffalo Sabres (NHL)

Buffalo Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres oftentimes get lost in the shuffle when New York professional sports teams are bandied about. For one, they haven’t been very good as of late. Perhaps more importantly, however, they don’t play in the same division as the three Metropolitan teams, the New York Rangers, New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils.

Nonetheless, the Sabres’ history is a proud one and its New York State-based roots are very real.
