Where To Bet Week 1 of College Football at PA Sportsbooks

week 1 college football pa sportsbooks

Football is back, and for the first time ever you can legally bet on it online in Pennsylvania thanks to the launch of PA online sports betting.

Where is the best online sportsbook to get in on the action? We recommend two:

  • FanDuel Sportsbook
  • SugarHouse Sportsbook

Read our Miami-Florida betting guide.

FanDuel Sportsbook

21+ and present in NJ, PA or IN. Gambling problem? Call 1-800-GAMBLER.

FanDuel Sportsbook PA launched in July and is currently the preferred book for most PA bettors. It leads the market in New Jersey and took in over $3 million in bets in only eight days after launch at the end of July. It offers a best-of-breed interface and no shortage of action for the Miami-Florida game.

Promo offers for Week 1 of the college football season

  • $500-risk free bet — this is FanDuel’s standard signup offer and is good for a risk-free bet up to $500
  • Multi-sport parlay insurance— place any parlay of 4+ legs on any sport in any market, and get your money back if all of your legs hit except one ($25 max refund)
  • Close loss insurance— get up to a $50 refund on moneyline bets if your team loses by 6 or less

The latter two offers are available to all bettors once you’re signed up for FanDuel Sportsbook.


SugarHouse Sportsbook

Gambling Problem? Call 1-800-Gambler. Only 1x Wager Applies, Playable in PA Only


SugarHouse Sportsbook was first to launch in PA and currently our top ranked option. However, they don’t offer an iOS app (you have to use a workaround on the mobile web to play on iPhones and iPads). The interface isn’t as good as FanDuel’s, but we find their prices to be better.

For Miami and Florida, SugarHouse is offering a slightly lower total and a +104 payout on Florida at -7.5. Their moneyline prices are also slightly better for this game as of writing this.

Promo offers for Week 1 of the college football season

SugarHouse offers only one promo:

  • $250 deposit match — this is their main signup offer and one of the best in the business as it requires only a 1x play-through to be eligible for withdraw

But there’s more.

SugarHouse is the only sportsbook in Pennsylvania to be running a season-long NFL Pick ‘Em contest. You have until September 8 to sign up for $150 to win from $500,000 in prizes. This, alone, is worth checking out SugarHouse for.

They also offer an online casino in PA.


Any other options in Pennsylvania?

BetRivers Sportsbook and Parx Sportsbook are also live. SugarHouse is the sister-site of Rivers and the two are virtually identical… except SugarHouse offers casino games. We feel all are better than Parx, though it does offer an iOS app.

Those are your four choices, right now, to bet in PA.
