Where is NCAA basketball betting legal in the US?

Futures betting on college basketball will be available in legal sports betting states.

Retail and online sportsbooks also post daily game lines, NCAA basketball futures and live in-play betting. The exact types will vary from state to state.

As the market pricing can fluctuate daily due to a school’s improved performance, an injury to a key player or a player being ruled academically ineligible, it makes sense to watch the sports betting apps and online sportsbooks for up-to-date pricing. The online sportsbook apps are more convenient, flexible and timely.

One legal exception to note in college basketball futures betting (as well as game-by-game betting) is in relation to New Jersey.

While you can freely bet on NCAA basketball while in the Garden State, state rules do not allow betting on any NJ-based schools. These include and extend to all games that are part of any regular-season or postseason tournaments. Similarly, you can bet on college sports in Illinois, but state law prohibits wagering on the in-state teams
