The Best Sports Betting Apps in Ohio

Sports betting in the Buckeye State will go live in the next few months. On launch day, almost 30 Ohio sports betting apps will be available to choose from. The Ohio Casino Control Commission set January 1, 2023, as the official start date for Ohio sports betting according to a sports betting bill that was recently passed into law.

You can use the leading sports apps when sports betting finally goes live in Ohio. You can bet on the NBA regular season, NFL playoffs, NHL regular season, regular college basketball season, and even the National Football Championship in January.

Here is a list of the best apps to enter the Ohio sports betting market.


DraftKings is the top betting app in terms of odds and value. The odds are frequently better than those at competing sportsbooks. Recently, DraftKings replaced Kambi with SBTech to provide odds. This sportsbook is different from Caesars, FanDuel, and PointsBet in that it doesn’t set its odds in-house. You can improve your odds even further with the DraftKings Ohio promo code.     

  User experience at DraftKings Ohio is simply astounding. Everything is easy to find thanks to the iconic interface in contrasting green and black. The navigation bar displays all the markets available to wager on.


Like DraftKings, FanDuel hardly needs an introduction. Live betting is where this app truly excels. Bets in real time are possible in practically any sport. Keep in mind the odds can change very frequently. Compared to BetMGM, FanDuel tends to have better live betting odds.


Those new to sports betting will find the BetMGM Ohio mobile betting app very welcoming. To begin with, there is a generous welcome bonus: a risk-free bet of up to $1,000. The platform has excellent ongoing offers and promotions as well, like the chance to win 20x what you wager.

Extras like Overtime Insurance for major sports leagues help newbies learn the ropes of sports betting and ensure they’ll get something in return even if their bet loses. The app is also very user-friendly.


If you’re looking for good bonuses, you’ll find them right here. New users of PointsBet Ohio are eligible for a welcome bonus of as much as $2,000. You can get credits of up to $1,500 and a $500 risk-free bet. Two welcome bonuses are a rarity at Ohio sports betting apps. Most offer just one.

This platform’s Points Betting system offers 10x your wager if you make an accurate prediction. Tread carefully, though – if you lose, you lose 10x your wager.


The next sports betting app on the list is Caesars, which is perfect for ongoing promotions for current and new users. When Caesars launched in Arizona, it offered a $5,000 risk-free bet and a $3,000 one upon launching in New York. Ohioans are expecting something just as generous. For now, Caesars has a risk-free bet of up to $1,500.


The final choice stands out with its odds boosts. Such are available daily for most major sports. The offer is 20% on College Hoops Boost Thursdays, NBA Boost Tuesdays, Gold Boost Sundays, and NHL Boost Fridays. It is valid for straight bets and parlays.
