For anyone wanting to place a bet on Saturday's Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs. Illinois Illini game from New Jersey, your options are few and far between.

Offshore sportsbooks have generally shied away from taking bets from New Jersey residents.  Where there's a will, there's a way though.  Anonymous betting accounts, local bookies, we here at Gambling911.com have even heard of instances where folks in New Jersey are having friends or family members or even out-of-state bookies place bets online from Pennsylvania and on-site in Delaware.

Until recently, New Jersey sports bettors were among the last to resort to such tactics.

Because in-state apps and retail outlets cannot take bets on NJ schools, those looking to wager on Seton Hall, and now Rutgers, simply cannot unless they get creative.

Rutgers is enjoying quite the resurgence and on Saturday will come into Illinois as a +5 to +5.5 underdog.

Illinois leads the all-time series 7-1, including last season’s 99-94 victory in Champaign on February 9th, 2019.  But Rutgers is 12-3 compared to Illinois at 11-5.  The Scarlet Knights have knocked off powerhouse Penn State and in-state Seton Hall.
