Moving forward in Indiana sports betting
While NFL betting continues to lead the way in the Hoosier State, Indiana does seem to benefit from a bit better balance with basketball than some other states.
This year, Indiana college basketball could be a boon, with Purdue ranked No. 1 last week.
Additionally, Bally Bet was recently approved as a new operator. It will be the 13th online sportsbook live in Indiana.
