New Jersey's legalized sportsbooks are going gangbusters, sort of.  Despite there being around a dozen sports betting apps on the New Jersey market, FanDuel and Draftkings own better than 70% of it.  That leaves the other ten or so to fight over crumbs.

But as it turns out, there are offshore sportsbooks licking their chops looking to exploit a major handicap in New Jersey's law, so too are local street bookies.

Sportsbooks licensed in New Jersey are prohibited from taking action on games featuring Rutgers. 

The Scarlet Knights are no Crimson Tide, but they are New Jersey's biggest name in college football.

Sportsbooks licensed outside the state are more than happy to take bets on Rutgers games.  While these sites are not regulated in the Garden State, many of these wagering firms have been in business going on 20 plus years now.  Bookmaker.eu opened shop in 1985 as a call center sportsbook. 

The Scarlet Knights are favored to win UNDER 3 regular season games, but they are the state's big name team.  Thanks to the burgeoning sports wagering industry in the state, there will be countless numbers of gamblers looking to get down on Rutgers as double digit dogs in most games.

Better yet, there will be marquee teams taking on the Scarlet Knights.

The Iowa Hawkeyes on September 7, the Michigan Wolverines on September 28.

But it's December that should be especially lucrative for the offshore books.  This is when Ohio State and Michigan State come to town, and then there is a final game at Penn State.
