Popular Sports and Teams to Bet on in Mississippi

Football is among the most popular sports in Mississippi. Even though the state has successful teams in other sports, football has so far outperformed soccer, basketball, baseball, and any other sport in terms of viewership. 

Unfortunately, Mississippi does not have many professional football teams, and the best teams are usually collegiate. We're talking about the Mississippi State Bulldogs, Mississippi Rebels, and Jackson State Tigers, among others. Thanks to Mississippi gambling laws, you can bet on those teams.

There are no professional teams in Mississippi, so the most popular teams in the state are the Ole Miss Rebels and the Mississippi State Bulldogs. It is unclear right now if Mississippi bettors will be allowed to wager on Mississippi-based college teams, but it would be surprising if that is restricted in a state with no professional franchises. 

If Mississippi residents had to pick their favorite pro teams, it would likely be the New Orleans teams based on their proximity to Louisiana. But those allegiances don't go past the NFL's New Orleans Saints or NBA's New Orleans Pelicans.


Many of the best betting sites will run fantastic ongoing promotions for the NFL, especially during Super Bowl weekend and the postseason. Mississippi bettors can bet on their favorite team using the $1,000 Risk-Free Bet from BetMGM. 


Since there are multiple games each day during the regular season, NBA betting is popular among sports fans. Mississippi bettors who want to bet on the games will be able to take advantage of a special NBA promotion at BetMGM.


The MLB is frequently on throughout the offseasons of most sports. With greater attention given to it, Mississippi gamblers may take advantage of several prop markets, such as home run total Over/Under or strikeouts.


Who can bet in Mississippi?

It is expected that you will be able to bet in Mississippi if you are at least 21 years old, hold a valid Social Security number and are physically in the state.

Can I bet in Mississippi as a non-MS citizen?

It would be a major surprise if there is a residency requirement for Mississippi bettors since no other state has that restriction. You must only be in the state when placing a bet, no matter where you live.

Is Sports Betting Legal in Mississippi?

Mississippi has physical locations for sportsbooks at the many casinos in the state, but has yet to debate or pass any legislation for online sports betting. The legislation is expected to be discussed and approved in the 2022 legislative session between January and April 2022.
