New Jersey bettors wagered $748.6 million in September, 12.1% higher than August and up 68% year-over-year. This marks the second straight month the Garden State has set an all-time record.

August was a perfect storm for betting with multiple sports resuming action, while September added in the juggernaut that is the NFL. The “other” category led bets, totaling $208.3 million — likely because of the Stanley Cup Final. Football made up 21.6% of total bets.
