Are there any online sports betting sites that are legal? Is fantasy football the same thing?

Sports betting and fantasy sports are not in the same category. On sports betting, it is you against the bookmaker while on fantasy sports, it is between multiple players. Also, sports betting have only recently become legal on some states while fantasy sports have always been legal. Another difference between them is that fantasy sports is a game of skill while sports betting is a game of luck. Like on fantasy football, in order to win, you really do need to have knowledge regarding football and have to do some research on the players.

There are now a lot of legal online sports betting sites but Sports Betting Dime have made a list on those with good reviews and ratings. Check it out here.


In the United States, for example, the legality of online sports betting varies by state. As of 2021, more than 20 states have legalized online sports betting, while others have yet to do so. FanDuel, BetMGM and DraftKings are some of the most popular sites. 

Regarding fantasy football, it is not the same thing as sports betting. Fantasy football involves creating a virtual team of real-life players and competing against other fantasy football teams based on the performance of those players in real-life games. It is a game of skill rather than chance, and is generally considered legal in most jurisdictions.
