TN Sports Betting Sites | Best Tennessee Online Sportsbooks

TN Sports Betting Sites are now live! Tennessee is approaching online sports wagering in a different way than other states which have allowed legal sports betting sites. Without any brick-and-mortar casinos in Tennessee, legislators were free to focus purely on legalizing online sports wagering, and operators won't need to worry about forming agreements with land-based partners. Head here to see the Tennessee sportsbook promos.

Anyone over 21 can now register at an online sports betting website or through a mobile app and must be within the state boundaries of Tennessee when placing wagers. This opens up legal online sports betting not just for the 6.8 million residents of the Volunteer state, but for those near the borders in the eight neighboring states as well as visitors to TN. 

While sports betting sites have also come to Virginia, the states of Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama, and Missouri have no form of legal sports betting while Arkansas, Mississippi, and North Carolina do not allow online sports wagering. Across the US, as other states have allowed online sports wagering, we have seen large numbers of people cross state lines to place wagers. 

Since when has online sports betting been legal in Tennessee?

Online sports betting has been legal in Tennessee since July 2019. Perhaps a surprise to many, with there not being any land-based casinos or racetracks in the state. The next part of the process is to finalize the state's regulations around legal sports betting.

The first mobile wagering in Tennessee went live on 1st November 2020
