Massachusetts Sports Betting

Massachusetts has the potential to become a sports betting hub in the United States. With five major league sports teams and casinos already up and running, it's only a matter of time before the world of online betting arrives to the state.

However, it the timing that has become somewhat of an issue the state which has made achingly slow progress in pushing through a bill. The state is currently looking at the fifth proposed bill, which would tax online sportsbooks 12.5%.

This taxation rate is much lower than many other states and considering how attractive the state is as a potential market, we foresee a huge amount of interest from sportsbooks.

In 2020, the senate decided not to approve any sports betting bill for the year. It is likely that a new bill will be proposed in 2021.

Online Sports Betting in Massachusetts

Everything looked so promising back in early 2019 when the state began the process of legalizing sports betting. The state is a relatively populous one with almost 7 million people, a high income level and five major league teams to its name. The state is also home to eight casinos and a state lottery.

However, legal wrangling over tax rates, integrity fees and licensing has seen five revisions to the proposed betting bill. We now expect that the earliest the state will legalize sports betting will be the summer of 2021.

The House's legislative session ended November 2020, so we will have to wait to find out if 2021 will be the year for sports betting in MA

There will be no shortage of suitors once the established casinos are allowed to partner with online sportsbooks looking to launch in the state. We expect DraftKings will be one of the first over state lines, considering it has already launched a product next door in New Hampshire. And, of course, wherever DraftKings goes, FanDuel follows.

The Bay State has no shortage of major league teams and certainly no shortage of titles.

The Boston Celtics are the most successful team in the NBA, with 17 championship titles and the most wins of any NBA team.

The Boston Bruins are the third oldest team in the NHL and have picked up six Stanley Cup wins during their almost 100 year history.
