Is FanDuel Sportsbook Legal in Oregon?

FanDuel will not be operating in the state of Oregon as rival DraftKings has acquired the sole license to offer mobile sports betting there.  This isn't your father's DraftKings as the Oregon version will be watered down.  No college sports betting, not even on the Ducks or Beavers.  Offshore sportsbooks fill the void there for Oregonians.

The Oregon Lottery has opted to shut down its disastrous ScoreBoard betting app and allow DraftKings to run the show.

Oregon was one of only a handful of states where sports betting was legal prior to a landmark Supreme Court decision allowing all US states to offer the activity if they opted to do so.  But the state lottery never did much with this power.

As bad as the ScoreBoard app is and despite no wagering on college games, Oregon still took in millions of dollars in revenue this past year.

Just as they have done in other states, DraftKings will likely hire lobbyists to push for legalization of betting on college games at some point. 

The Ducks did have a winning record in College Basketball with 125-1 odds to win the 2022 Men's College Basketball Championship.  Both the Ducks and Beavers played well in College Football during the 2021 season.
