Legalized sports betting launches in Tennessee on Sunday, a market that could generate $6 billion in bets annually when it reaches maturation. Nineteen states and Washington D.C. have launched legalized betting since the Supreme Court repealed PASPA in May 2018.
Tennessee’s population mirrors Indiana, which has seen $1.4 billion in sports wagers in the 13 months since sports betting launched, making it the fourth-largest market over that time. Indiana set a monthly record in October, handling $207.5 million in bets.
Four operators will launch in Tennessee on Sunday: FanDuel, DraftKings and BetMGM, along with Tennessee-based Action 24/7.
