Tennessee sports betting is expected to go live this weekend, if not earlier. And when it does, sportsbooks will be rushing to get you on board.
The Volunteer State will become the seventh in the U.S. with full-scale online betting and registrations, plus a competitive market that will allow for multiple sportsbook operators.
Here are the four sites going live (hopefully) this weekend.
How to Sign Up When Tennessee Goes Live
MGM is a major casino brand across the country and in Las Vegas, and its BetMGM sports betting brand has started to make waves as a major player in the larger U.S. market.
MGM offers a straight-forward app, competitive sign-up offers and some niche-but-favorable betting rules like ties paid in full for golf finishing position bets. They’re the only U.S. book to offer that.
DraftKings has been among the sports betting leaders in the U.S. thanks to its existing brand power, DFS user base and massive marketing budget. The Boston-based company has been among the first books in every state, and Tennessee is no different.
DraftKings has a great selection of NFL player props, is the first book in most U.S. states to post college football lines for the following week, and has among the best mobile apps in the market.
Like its DFS counterpart, FanDuel got out to an early lead in the U.S. and has been building upon it.
Thanks to its massive budget, FanDuel can get into states with high barrier to entry, like Tennessee and Illinois.
FanDuel also recently combined its wallets so you can use the same money for DFS and sports betting.
Its biggest downsides are that it can be difficult to find smaller markets like props because they’re buried so far in each game.
4. Action 247
Action 247 is brand new to the sports betting market, and will only operate in Tennessee.
On its website, which is live but not operational for betting yet, they say:
“Action247 launched with the simple idea of creating a world-class sportsbook for the people of Tennessee and having a ton of fun doing it. We’re not a mega-corporation from some far off land. We’re Tennessee owned and operated.”
