There are millions of people across the United States tuning into sports events each day. These high-profile sports include football, basketball, soccer and many more. In recent years, viewers have been able to add a new element of anticipation to their viewing experience through sports betting.

Sports betting is currently legal in 30 states, including Tennessee, with certain platforms only being legal in up to 18 states.

Sports gambling has been around since sports existed, especially in the past with horse racing. In modern America, there are easy and accessible ways for people to participate in sports betting through apps. There are now a variety of different apps for people to use for their betting, and these apps are advertised all across media platforms.

Here are five of the best sports betting apps for those looking to get involved in the betting business.


One of the most advertised sports betting apps is BetMGM. On any given day, one may come across the famous ad featuring entertainer Jamie Foxx. BetMGM began in 2018 and has since become one of the most popular gambling apps in the country. The minimum deposit required is $10 and the first bet is risk-free — even if they lose the bet, they get something in return.


Similar to BetMGM, FanDuel offers a risk-free first bet of up to $1,000 with a minimum of a $10 deposit.
