The Advantages of Betting on Sports Online Compared to at the Casino in Pennsylvania

Jerome Taylor discusses the extensive list of advantages that come with online sports betting in Pennsylvania.

Let’s go back in time five months ago—which seems like an eternity for sports fans—you’re at Garage Fishtown and the Sixers have just taken a commanding lead in the middle of third quarter, the game looks well in hand. But you know this team, you’ve followed them closely these last few years and you know that there is no such thing as an easy win. You look at the live line and realize that the Sixers are expected to win by ten, you know better and with a couple of taps of your finger you’re hoping the sixers win but not by too much.

Now the result of the scenario above is not to encourage you to bet against the red, white and blue whenever they take a big lead but it’s to point out how easy it is betting on app especially compared to traditional brick and mortar sportsbooks.

Places like SugarHouse and Parx have their place in the new American sports betting landscape but when compared to the likes of FanDuel and DraftKings they can’t compete with the ease and access of these applications. For starters all of the moving parts necessary to get from your bed to the line at the ticket window is a vastly less attractive option to waking up, unplugging your phone and placing that NFL parlay you’re (almost) going to hit.

The advantages of sports betting apps don’t stop there either, because placing bets during football weekends is one thing but what about the sports that have multiple games a week, the idea of going to a casino to place bets on all 82 (well 73, thanks Corona) Sixers games isn’t feasible. And the feasibility decreases even further when you start betting on baseball (if they ever play again).

Speaking of America’s pastime, betting lines in that sport can change with one adjustment to the batting order. In that instance it makes betting apps even more attractive because you can place a bet on the same device that just notified you that Bryce Harper is moving up in the order that day.

However, if you are a person who finds the ambiance of the casino appealing, you have to know it is not for everyone. Between the possibility of waiting in line to place your bets to the too rowdy patron and the fact that you might have to deal with secondhand smoke are all turn offs for a sizeable portion of the sports gambling community.

Sports betting apps offer one more significant advantage over brick and mortar sportsbooks and that is the versatility of the lines. Depending on how active of a better you are you may have 2 to 4 betting apps on your phone and though the spread differences may not be significant it allows you to find the line that appeals to you the most. Lines may differ from casino to casino, but who determines what casino they are going to spend the day at based on the line that is being offered? Most of us go wherever our friends want to go that day, locking you into the whatever line is at that particular casino.

In the current age of American sports betting, apps hold a distinct advantage over traditional sportsbooks because you can access them in bed, at the bar or tailgating in Jetro lot before a Phillies or Eagles game. And after you actually hit your parlay don’t you want to stretch out on the couch and not hit traffic on the way home?
