Ohio Sports Betting: Caesars Sportsbook at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse ‘almost here’
The Caesars Sportsbook at the Cleveland Cavaliers Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse will not be open during Ohio’s 12:01 a.m. sports betting launch, but according to the operator it will be open soon in the New Year.
Caesars Sportsbook and the Cavaliers both posted videos previewing the new sportsbook at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse and promised it is “almost here” for 2023.
Who doesn’t love a good cryptic tweet on New Year’s Eve to get the blood pumping?

The Cavaliers are still searching for a sports betting operator to run its online sports betting program, as its original partner Fubo Gaming announced it would cease operations back in October.
While most Ohio professional sports franchises have embraced sports betting and will feature sportsbooks in their facilities, the only confirmed sportsbook that will be taking bets on Jan. 1 is the BetMGM Sportsbook at the Cincinnati Reds’ Great American Ball Park.
The book will open tomorrow morning at 11 a.m. and will select one of its longtime season ticket holders to place the first wager at the stadium.
