A New Era for Degenerates

This season may look a little different.

BSD Degenerates is set to return shortly! In the meantime, here’s an update on the changes you can see for sports betting in Pennsylvania.

We are just days away from the start of a new football season for Penn State. There is no shortage of storylines as we approach the 2021 campaign, from the Nittany Lions kicking off the season with a showdown at Wisconsin, welcoming the first SEC squad to Beaver Stadium for the first time in a decade, Jahan Dotson hoping to prove himself as the nation’s best wide receiver, and well, the team trying to bounce back from a 4-5 record.

This season will also mark some additional interest from bettors as well, as changes in laws will make the placing wagers on Penn State’s results on the gridiron (and basketball court, for the matter) more friendly - both for the degenerates and non-denegenrates alike.

In 2018 online sports betting in Pennsylvania was launched. The Keystone State now has multiple sportsbooks including familiar names like DraftKings, FanDuel and BetMGM. Penn State fans can now wager on their teams, unlike neighboring state New Jersey which doesn’t allow college sports betting yet. While you do not have to be a Pennsylvania resident to get in on the action, you must be physically within state borders while placing these bets.

Each of the three aforementioned sportsbook sites offer initial sign-up bonuses in the form of risk-fee bets (up to $1,050 for DraftKings, $1,000 for FanDuel and $600 for BetMGM. All three also boast a 4.8/5 App Store rating for your betting convenience).

There are also several physical locations of betting venues throughout Pennsylvania:

  • Harrah’s Philadelphia
  • Hollywood Casino
  • Rivers Casino Philadelphia (formerly Sugarhouse Casino)
  • Rivers Casino Pittsburgh
  • The Meadows Casino & Racetrack
  • Mohegan Sun Pocono
  • Mount Airy Casino
  • Oaks Race & Sportsbook (Valley Forge)
  • Parx Casino & Racing Track
  • Presque Isle Downs
  • South Philly Turf Club
  • Valley Forge Casino Resort

May the odds ever be in your favor...
