SEC Sports Betting in 2023

SEC Sports Betting States and Sportsbook Apps are not only expanding rapidly but also helping college football sports betting reach a new and exciting level across the nation.

The only football entity that could possibly dream of the NFL’s level of power is the SEC, as the conference’s dominance is unmatched across NCAA football.

The SEC Sports Betting States and the sportsbook apps that help Southeastern Conference college football fans reach a new level of fandom are more than simply noteworthy.

As it currently stands, three of the SEC college football states are currently live via legal online sports betting (Louisiana, Tennessee, and Arkansas). But that doesn’t mean we should all pack it up and head home—or worse yet, start watching the ACC. *To note, Mississippi does offer sports betting but is heavily restricted so bettors have to be physically located within the grounds of a casino to place any wagers.

Several SEC college football states could be coming soon, including both Florida and Georgia which are hoping to make progress towards legalizing sports betting this year. This equates to an incoming tidal wave ready to allow all willing participants to double their Saturday Down South fun.

Those who currently reside in or are within state limits of an already-legal online sports betting state can get started with Caesars Sportsbook’s excellent new-user bonus of up to $1,250 on Caesars today:

SEC Sports Betting States with Legal Online Sports Betting

Just three* of the SEC’s 11 states are currently live and legal via online sports betting. Louisiana, Tennessee, and Arkansas represent the only three states currently leading the charge for the SEC as of right now (Mississippi is additionally live but with heavy betting restrictions). But, as previously mentioned, that’s bound to change as time marches forward.

Each state faces its own unique motivations and challenges. In the online sports gambling world, there’s never a one-size-fits-all solution.


It was a Tennessee world when it comes to SEC online sports betting. That was until Louisiana came calling, with the Volunteer State currently living up to its name: Volunteering as the first SEC college football state to get into the legalized online sports betting world.

While Mississippi legalized sports gambling in 2018, it has yet to go live with online sports betting action. This means the Tennessee Volunteers and their fans were the first SEC team to enjoy the fruits of online sports wagering at the current moment. (Let’s not forget about the Vanderbilt Commodores, either.)

Here comes Louisiana, folks. The state became the second live SEC state to legalize online sports endeavors, as it officially went live in early 2022 after legal sports betting passed in State Congress in early June 2021.

Now, LSU Tigers fans are doubling their Saturday football fun.

Launching at the start of 2022, Arkansas became the third state to fully legalize online sports betting state-wide. Razorbacks fans can now bet on every game throughout the season and enjoy plenty of great sports betting promos to get started!

Future Potential SEC Sports Betting States


Floridians are so close they can see the dollar bills dancing in their heads as they sleep. Florida is officially on deck after the news that broke earlier this year.

Three separate bills have entered the State legislature from the House. Even more encouraging is the idea that the Senate looks primed to also be ready to make a push. It becomes tricky when thinking about the Seminole Gaming Tribe—which is nearly all of the state’s gambling.

Soon—most likely in 2024— Florida Gators football will become a big-time online sports betting play within the Sunshine State.

If only Alabama lawmakers were as dominant and forward-thinking as Nick Saban’s team. Perhaps online sports betting would already be a reality in the state.

Unfortunately, Alabama isn’t close to legal online sports betting. At least not yet. So, Alabama Crimson Tide and Auburn Tigers fans who reside in-state will have to wait it out like the other tough nuts to crack.

Could you imagine the Iron Bowl’s overall hype with legalized Alabama online sports betting in the mix?


It looked good for most of 2021, but then … a setback for Georgia. After passing in the Senate, the state’s sports betting legislation failed.

An agreement could not be reached, which means 2022 (at the earliest) is the safest bet for when the state will turn live with online sports wagering. Hey, at least the Georgia Bulldogs are still a Saturday event.

Make sure to consume Saturday Down South’s Georgia online sports betting page for every update.


Over a year ago, Kentucky took one of the first steps in legalizing online sports betting. Unfortunately, the state is not any closer to passing a law.

Rep. Adam Koenig (R) championed a betting bill and cleared a House committee without opposition in January 2020. But it’s been since delayed, partly due to the pandemic and partly due to other leadership that hasn’t allowed it to see the floor.

Sorry, Kentucky Wildcats fans, but your day will ultimately arrive at some point.


Mississippi isn’t just a word used in flag football or seven on sevens; it’s an actual state, of course. This football-crazed territory loves its college brand and has two teams that belong to the all-powerful SEC.

Both Ole Miss and Mississippi State have longstanding traditions within college football’s mightiest conference. Unfortunately, although Mississippi legalized sports gambling quickly back in 2018—after the overturn of PASPA—in-state residents continue to wait for legal online sports betting action.

Residents, including Ole Miss Rebels and Mississippi State Bulldogs fans, can be on sports at certain brick-and-mortar locations, but no sportsbooks are currently involved at the moment.


Not only is there no online sports betting in Missouri, but the state hasn’t even yet legalized sports gambling on a retail basis. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel, as lawmakers made a strong effort in late 2020 to push things to the table.

The logistics surrounding how it should all play out is what’s currently holding everything up. This means in-state Missouri Tigers fans will have to settle for in-game results for now.

South Carolina

South Carolina represents one of the long-shot states at the moment. Longstanding traditions that are very much anti-gambling have remained strong to this day. When the tide finally turns is anybody’s best guess.

It doesn’t look like in-state South Carolina Gamecocks fans will have the ability to double their fun anytime soon.


Much like South Carolina, the great state of Texas also belongs to the “longshot” category. Sports betting remains illegal in the state, and despite some bills floating around, nothing of substance has materialized.

For the SEC, Texas remains a big one moving forward, courtesy of the Texas A&M Aggies SEC representation.

It’s been Alabama country in the SEC over the last decade, but in 2022, Georgia set the new standard in the SEC. Going 13-0 in the regular season and then blowing LSU away in the SEC Championship game, the Bulldogs will be looking to build on this form going into the next season.
