The Status of Sports Betting in New York State

New York opened sportsbooks in casino locations within the state in 2019, but all in mostly sparsely populated regions. Mobile sports betting from businesses operating within the state of New York was only available from websites licensed outside the states until the first week of January 2022.  The in-state licensed books do not take bets on New York college teams.  This includes the Syracuse Orange in College Basketball.

Additionally, the tax for those sportsbooks based in New York is greater than 50%, thus making it especially difficult to offer competitive bonuses and lines. In fact, the tax on winnings is 24% federal with New York residents having 8.82% withheld for winnings over $5000.  Sites like BetOnline do not report winnings.

Promos available to those on the New York state regulated sites are limited and less competitive compared to those offered by websites accessible to state residents and visitors that are licensed outside the United States.

Bovada announced it will stop taking bets from New York residents effective June 2021, but sites like BetOnline are there to fill the void.

While Bovada is a popular website and one of the largest U.S.-facing Web gambling sites, BetOnline is an excellent alternative and just as big, if not bigger, and also more established.

The Knicks Are Hot

The New York Knicks are playing some of their best basketball in decades.

Coming into February 2024, Tim Botemps of ESPN writes:

"No Julius Randle? No problem! Well, at least, so far. Thankfully for New York, it appears Randle's shoulder injury is going to be measured in weeks, not months, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, meaning the Knicks should get him back with plenty of time left in the regular season -- and have the upcoming All-Star break to mitigate the number of games missed. Still, New York has been the hottest team in the league of late, ripping off wins in 13 of its past 15 games since OG Anunoby made his debut. That Anunoby trade has put the Knicks back in the fight for a top-three seed in the East."
