No Shortage of Sports to Bet On in the Grand Canyon State

Each of the major sportsbooks listed above will offer every major sport to wager on when they go online. Chances are you can wager on any sport you’re looking for with these betting sites, which is excellent news for fans in Arizona!

Whether it’s the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, UFC, or PGA Tour, Arizona sports bettors can get closer to the action in their favorite games. Unlike other states, Arizona will not have special restrictions on college sports – meaning you can bet on games taking place within Arizona, as well as wagering on local teams like the Wildcats or Sun Devils.
