Team Handball Betting Guide: Where and How to Bet in the U.S.

The Green States: Where you can Legally Bet on Handball in the USA

Team Handball is a great sport to watch and it goes practically without saying that it’s also a great sport to bet on. Here’s a guide for would be handball bettors in the U.S.

Where You Can Legally Bet on Handball in the U.S

The map above (updated on 9 Oct 2020) depicts the current legal status and availability of handball betting in the U.S. Currently, there are 10 states (depicted in green) where betting is 1) legal and 2) handball betting lines are readily available. Those 10 states are Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Depicted in Yellow are several states where sports betting is legal, but for a variety of reasons handball betting is not yet available. The most common reason is that several states have not yet authorized mobile/online betting and require all sports bets to be made in actual casinos where the focus is typically the major sports. Perhaps handball lines are available for “off the board” bettors, but I doubt it. The good news is that many states, including New York, seem likely to add mobile betting in the near future.

Depicted in White are several states that have pending legislation to authorize sports betting. And, finally in Red are a number of states where there is either no legislation in the works or legislation to legalize sports betting failed to get passed. This website keeps a tally as to the current status of legalization: Link
