Ohio sports betting news and updates
When sports betting launches, you will have a variety of options for placing wagers. Along with both retail and online/mobile sports betting, people in the state will also be able to find sports betting kiosks at various grocery stores, bars, restaurants and other retail establishments.
BetMGM has a path into Ohio via its racino, MGM Northfield Park. The sportsbook applied for both an online and a retail license in the Buckeye State. It has received conditional approval for these licenses at MGM Northfield Park from the Ohio Casino Control Commission.
People in Ohio will be able to bet on local professional teams like the Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Cleveland Cavaliers, Cleveland Guardians and Cincinnati Reds, as well as local college teams like the Ohio State Buckeyes.
The Buckeyes are fourth in the College Football Playoff rankings, leaving them to play the top-ranked Georgia Bulldogs in the Peach Bowl on Dec. 31. If they win that game, they will compete in the national title game on Jan. 9, which people in Ohio would be able to bet on.
