Where Can I Bet College Player Props? College Sports Betting Laws By State

Amidst a move by the NCAA to curb college player prop betting, plus several high-profile sports betting scandals, states are starting to change their minds on the practice of betting on college player props. Plenty of states do not have differing laws when it comes to betting college sports game results and player props, but other legal betting states have decided to ban college props altogether — some doing so in recent months. So you may be asking, where can I bet college player props? Here we will go over college sports betting laws by state to examine where and how it is legal to place player prop bets on college athletes.

Louisiana, Ohio, Maryland and Vermont have banned college player props recently, and the NCAA has been pushing other states to follow suit. For now, there is a fairly even split between states that allow college player props in some form (15states) and those that do not allow any (13).

The following states do not allow any player props on college sports:

  • Arizona
  • Colorado
  • Louisiana
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • New York
  • Ohio
  • Oregon
  • Pennsylvania
  • Tennessee
  • Vermont
  • Virginia
  • West Virginia

Chances are that this list is going to grow in the near future. Other than these states above, there is no clear direction that the states approve college player prop betting are going, but the NCAA’s push to ban — not to mention the regular sports betting scandals we have seen — is quite possibly going to lead to a wave of states follow Louisiana’s footsteps.

These states allow player props on college sports, but not for teams within the state:

  • Connecticut
  • Illinois
  • Iowa
  • Maine
  • New Jersey
  • New Hampshire
  • Rhode Island

Connecticut is reconsidering this position, probably at least in part to the UConn Men’s Basketball Team winning back-to-back titles. The state also does not have a professional team within its borders, as most residents are fans of either a New York team or a New England one. If Connecticut starts allowing bets on UConn players, you can bet there will be in influx of such wagers right away.

One state only allows college player props pre-game:

  • Indiana

This isn’t a particularly strong restriction on college player props; it simply means that there is no live, in-game betting on college player props in Indiana. Prior to game start, you can bet on all the college player props you want.

These states/districts allow all college props with no restrictions:

  • Arkansas
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Michigan
  • North Carolina
  • Washington D.C.
  • Wyoming

It makes perfect sense that Kansas, Kentucky and North Carolina allow college player props since their college teams are easily the most popular within the state. The same goes for Arkansas and Wyoming on a lesser scale. Michigan, on the other hand, has a lot of options for pro sports, but it still allows player prop betting. Washington D.C. betting is likely to get more popular in the coming seasons since it has switched over from the buggy GambetDC to FanDuel, one of the top betting operators in the country.
