The state of Indiana was open for business (as far as sports betting is concerned) all last month and the numbers are in.
The state’s sportsbooks booked $34.5 million in sports bets which showed a profit of $8.5 million.
Of that $8.5 million about $813,000 was given to the state.
Not surprisingly, a majority of that 35 million was bet on football, $20.7M to be exact. Parlays accounted for $9.7M worth of the wagers. Parlays are always great for the house. The remaining $3.4M was bet on baseball.
October’s handle is expected to be much higher as mobile betting was launched on October 3rd.
Two Indiana mobile sportsbooks became active on October 3rd, 2019:
