College football betting is finally legal outside of Nevada and millions of NCAA fans can now place a wager right from their couch on any computer or mobile device. With many states legalizing online sports betting and many others in the process of approving similar laws, fans can now bet on college football legally, easily, and (hopefully) profitably.
NCAA betting has already been legalized in Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Rhode Island, and Mississippi and many other states have proposed legislation that would bring college football betting to all adults over 21 who are located in those states. These sportsbooks, many of which are run by existing casinos, use geolocation technology to confirm you are betting from within state lines and identity-verification software to confirm you are over 21.
