New Jersey Sets US Record For Sports Betting in August

August was a record-setting month for New Jersey sportsbooks as the MLB, NBA and NHL were all in action.

Last month, handle hit an all-time high of $668 million. This was more than double the $315 million bet in July! The $668 million recorded by the New Jersey sportsbooks is the highest monthly total for any state ever, breaking Nevada’s $614 million recorded last November.

While baseball and basketball were all back in August, it was actually the ‘other’ sports which took in the most money. Bets on sports such as hockey, golf, UFC and tennis accounted for around $205 million of the month’s handle.

Basketball then took in $166.2 million in August, and baseball a close second with $150 million bet on completed events. Parlay bettors were happy to see major US sports return, too, as handle on those completed events was $144.9 million.

Now we are in September and the NFL has returned to our screens, which could mean more records broken this month! Looking for a Free Bet in New Jersey? Click here to check out our exclusive New Jersey offers now.
