Pennsylvania joined the list of states hitting new sports betting heights in the packed sports month of September.

Handle totaled $462.8 million in September, quickly topping the record set in August by 26.8%. It’s the first time the market broke the $400 million handle mark.

Revenue, however, did not hit a new record, according to the state report. There was $18.3 million in sports betting revenue for September, which is good for 3.9% hold. That follows a national trend of modest hold despite record-setting amounts wagered.

Taxable revenue was much lower, though, as operators used significantly more promotional credits as a percentage of revenue in September. That’s not unusual for big customer acquisition periods like the beginning of NFL betting season.



The NJ sports betting market hit a total that could take a while to be topped – or maybe the Garden State might again top itself next month.

Bettors put up $748.6 million with legal New Jersey sportsbooks in September. That’s a new monthly record for both the state and the US sports betting market as a whole, topping last month’s record by 12.1%.

The addition of college football and NFL betting to an already packed sports month helped push the market to a new height. The three-quarters of a billion dollars in handle is the up 68% from last September’s $445.6 million.

More than $9 out of every $10 was bet online in September with mobile handle of $678.7 million, or 90.6% of the total.

#IGT Partnership With #NBA To Bring Official #Data, #Logos To #Sportsbooks from @US_Bets’ Chris Altruda (@Altruda73)

International Game Technology (IGT) entered a multiyear sports betting partnership with the NBA on Wednesday that gives the sports betting platform provider access to the league’s official data and team and league logos for use in sportsbooks and casinos across the United States.

The London-based company will be the first sports betting platform provider to bring NBA marks into American sportsbooks and casinos, and IGT hopes it will create a further distinction for its PlaySports sports betting platform.

“Partnering with the NBA to bring official league data to our PlaySports customers further validates IGT’s seriousness about delivering an unrivaled sports betting solution for the U.S. market and supports the ‘all-in-one’ proposition that we offer,” said Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital senior vice president, in a joint statement with the league. “With the rise in popularity of in-play, prop, and parlay bets, having access to official, real-time NBA data feeds and league marks and logos positions IGT to collaborate with our PlaySports customers in creating highly compelling betting menus for sports fans across the country.”


Turnpike Sports® #NFL #ProFootball Week Six #Picks

Regular Season: Dave 8 – 7; Doug 9 – 6


New York Jets @ Miami Dolphins (-8) O/U 47.5

Let’s face it, the Jets are a mess. Bad offense, bad defense. The only bright spot is the punter and Adam Gase is making sure he’s getting a lot of work. The Jets were beaten badly by the Cardinals last week, letting Kyler Murray have a career day with over 350 yards passing. This game was moved up in the schedule because of all the COVID issues the league is currently dealing with and New York will be facing a red hot Fitzmagic, who is playing as well as he ever has. He shredded the 49ers last week, a team with a much better defense than New York’s. The over is 4-0 in the Jets last four games after a game where they gave up over 250 passing yards. The over is 5 – 1 in the Dolphins last six home games and it’s also 5 – 1 in the Dolphins last six games versus teams with a losing record.

Pick is Over 47.5

Cleveland Browns @ Pittsburgh Steelers (-3.5) O/U 51

This is a match up between what I think are the two best teams in the AFC North. One can make an argument for the Ravens still being better than the Browns, but Cleveland has shown some really creative game planning and a very aggressive offensive personality. I picked against them last week and they really showed me something against the Colts, who had the league’s best defense going into the game. The OVER is 4 – 0 in the Browns last four games and Pittsburgh is coming off a game against the Eagles where the total was 60. The home team is 4 – 0 ATS in their last four meetings. I want to lean toward the over here, but I think Pittsburgh is a more complete team at this stage with more playmakers than Cleveland.

Pick is Steelers (-3.5)

Cincinnati Bengals @ Indianapolis Colts (-8.0) O/U 46.5

Even though the Colts lost against a very improved Browns team, Cincinnati and in particular quarterback Joe Burrow is still trying to find ways to win. They’re playing well, but the Colts are on another level. Even though the favorite is 5 – 1 ATS in their last six games, the under is also 5 – 1. I think the 8 point spread is too much and mix in the fact that the under is 10-2-1 in the Bengals’ last 13 games as a road dog, you have to think that the way to go is to take the under.

Pick is UNDER 46.5

Cleveland Browns V. Pittsburgh Steelers (-3.5) OU 51

I’m back on the Cleveland Browns bandwagon. I think this is going to be a pretty close game with lots of scoring. The Browns in their last 4 games have hit the over all 4 times and in their last 21 games Pittsburgh Steelers have hit the over 16 times. Even though the Steelers have one of the best defenses in the NFL I think the Browns will have their shots at the end zone and put some points on the board. This will make the Steelers have to score lots of points. I think these teams should put more than 51 points on the board.

Pick: I’m taking the OVER in this one.

Denver Broncos V. New England Patriots (-9) O/U 45.5

This game is going to be ugly. I’m assuming Cam Newton will not be playing for the Patriots who have missed valuable time practicing due to their facilities being shut down. Denver won’t be much better in fact, in their last 5 meetings in Foxboro they have gone 0 – 5 ATS. I think this game will be close because both teams will have trouble scoring and whatever the under turns out to be, I’m taking the under. By the way some books in Vegas have the over-under at 45.5. earlier in the week.

Pick:I’m taking the UNDER in this one

Arizona Cardinals (-2.5) V. Dallas Cowboys O/U 54.5

The loss of Dak Prescott is devastating. He was the reason why the Cowboys were in so many close games because the Dallas defense cannot keep people out of the end zone. I’m jumping on this number because I saw the Arizona Cardinals we’re at -2.5. I have a feeling if I wait around to the end of the week or closer to game time that number could go to 3 or higher. So as it stands right now I’m grabbing the Cardinals.

Pick: I’m taking the Arizona Cardinals and laying the points
