Sports betting revenue remains strong despite handles dipping in June. New York was the the only state with a $1 billion handle.

While inflation and gas prices continue to negatively affect the lives of Americans, states around the country continue to report sizable revenue in sports betting.

Although handles dipped across the board in June, bettors are still seeking investments on sporting events as an alternative to the declining values of 401K portfolios. June was highlighted by action involving MLB, the NBA Finals, NBA draft betting, the NHL Stanley Cup Final, UFC and the Belmont Stakes.

June 2022: Top States in Reported Sports Betting Handles

1. New York: $1,056,694,012

2. New Jersey: $633,184,861

3. Nevada: $490,310,834

4. Pennsylvania: $393,494,222

New York

New York continues to be the only reported state with a billion-dollar handle.

The Empire State, despite witnessing its worst revenue generating month of 2022, still brought in $72,441,500 off $1,056,694,012 in total sports betting handle in June.

The success of the Yankees, who went 22-6 in the month of June, was not enough to propel New York bettors to a winning month over the sportsbooks. While the excitement of the Yankees and the Mets both boosted handles, the early summer sports were not enough to carry bettors to a financial win as sportsbooks posted an impressive hold percentage above 5.0% for the fourth consecutive month.

States regulating ballot drop boxes should check the science first

  States regulating ballot drop boxes should check the science first We need to step back from our assumptions and let science inform our decisions about how to use them to their best effect. Both election officials and voters like drop boxes. Drop boxes have been shown to reduce the burden of voting and increase turnout in historically disenfranchised areas. Surveys suggest that the ability to use a drop box increases the confidence voters have that their vote will be counted and increases the voters’ trust in the voting process. Ballots submitted to a drop box are only handled and processed by election staff, which some voters view as more secure than submitting ballots via the U.

AFC South Future Odds Betting Breakdown

  AFC South Future Odds Betting Breakdown The Titans have won the AFC South in back-to-back years but the Colts are the division favorites at SI Sportsbook. But is a sleeper lurking? Based on the summer over/under win totals and division betting odds at SI Sportsbook, the Colts are the favorites to win the AFC South (+110) but their wins total over/under (9.5) is the same as the back-to-back division champions Titans (+150).The Jaguars (+600) and Texans (+2500), based on the odds and their wins totals, project to have losing records with almost no chance to compete for the division title.

New Jersey

New Jersey saw a decrease in total sports betting handle for the third consecutive month, falling from $926,946,780 in April to $39,245,213 in June.

The Garden State brought in $39,245,213 in sports betting revenue for June, which displays a significant 44.9% drop from June of 2021 posted figure of $71,267,544.

However, New Jersey enjoyed its second-best hold percentage (6.2%) of the year behind May (8.0%) despite witnessing its second-lowest revenue generating month since August of 2020.

While bettors could not wager on the NBA draft in New York, they could in New Jersey. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski’s tweet of Jabari Smith going No. 1 overall was perhaps followed too strongly by those in the Garden State who were on the wrong side of the late sharps swing that the top honors would belong to Paolo Banchero.

Although schools are on break, family trips to Atlantic City beaches and casinos did not translate into increased handle for sportsbooks in the first month of summer.

Saints Over/Under Wins Total Betting Breakdown

  Saints Over/Under Wins Total Betting Breakdown The Saints haven’t had a losing season since 2016 but their over/under at SI Sportsbook for the upcoming season is just 7.5 wins. Quarterback Jameis Winston returns from his season-ending ACL surgery after leading the Saints to a 5-2 start in 2021.Head coach Sean Payton has retired but the Saints promoted Dennis Allen from within the organization and they retained offensive play-caller Pete Carmichael.It also looks like Michael Thomas will be ready to start the season.Is Las Vegas disrespecting the Saints? Let’s break it down.


Nevada sportsbooks will likely fall out of the top three once Illinois releases its numbers soon. Las Vegas sportsbooks directors continue to be “reluctant” to adapt to what other operators are offering and that is negatively affecting handle and revenue.

Nevada brought in $23,833,068 (4.9% hold percentage) in sports betting revenue off of $490,310,834 in handle in June.

Those figures revealed a 18.3% decline from the $29,186,000 in revenue in June 2021.

The Silver State, which witnessed a boom in strip tourism thanks to the World Series of Poker, did not see the spike translate into sports betting success. Nevada witnessed its lowest sports betting handle of 2022, dropping below the $500 million mark for the first time since August 2021.

While many states around the country offered intriguing markets around the NBA draft, Vegas stubbornly refused to offer patrons similar investment opportunities. The unwillingness to match markets is resulting in bettors contacting friends or family outside the state for the desired action.

Pennsylvania reported its worst handle ($393,494,222) of 2022, which represented a 20.2% drop from the previous month of May ($493,350,519).

The Keystone State still managed to post $22,889,554 in revenue, which resulted in a hold percentage of 5.8%.

It appears that bettors still failed to yield a victory over the sportsbooks despite the hometown Phillies going 19-8 June, which included a nine-game winning streak.

  Notre Dame College Football Future Odds Breakdown Notre Dame’s over/under wins total at SI Sportsbook is 9.5 wins and the Fighting Irish have +4000 odds to win the national title. Despite enjoying an impressive 92–39 (.702) record during Brian Kelly’s tenure in South Bend, Notre Dame fans were disappointed after being blown out in its only National championship game appearance (2013) and witnessing two first-round playoff exits (2018, 2020) by a combined margin of 44 points.Kelly proved unable in each matchup to devise successful game plans against powerhouse programs Alabama (twice) and Clemson.

Broncos Over/Under Wins Total Betting Breakdown .
Expectations are high in Denver with new quarterback Russell Wilson and the Broncos’ over/under wins total at SI Sportsbook is 9.5 wins. While the expectations for Russell Wilson and the Broncos in 2022 continue to soar, the betting odds in the club’s future markets are becoming more prohibitive.The veteran quarterback joins a talented Broncos offense that has been missing reliable play under center since Peyton Manning retired. In the post-Manning era, Denver has produced just one winning season in 2016 and since endured five consecutive losing seasons while posting a disappointing 30-51 (.3790) record.
