Today marks the first time you can legally bet on an NFL slate in Indiana thanks to the launch of Indiana online sports betting.
Catching many by surprise, state regulators declared two sportsbooks ready to take your action this week, and both are up and running this weekend.
Here is where and how you can bet on NFL Week 5 games in Indiana, including the Chiefs-Colts game on Sunday Night Football.
Where To Bet
DraftKings is the preferred option as it is available on both iOS and Android. It is also our choice for best overall online sportsbook in the US.
DraftKings offers a clean, modern interface, a substantial amount of action – from NFL Football to darts – along with one of the best live betting experiences available in sports betting, thanks to their cash out option, which allows you to pull money out of a winning or losing bet before the conclusion of a game.
They feature all of the action you would come to expect from a modern sportsbook, including spread, moneyline, and totals, and also parlays, props, teasers, pools, and more.
New users who sign up here can claim a $200 first bet match, meaning DraftKings will give you a free bet equal to the amount of your first bet up to $200, and an up to $500 deposit bonus. The deposit bonus comes with some fine print. The first $50 of your deposit is matched instantly, and then everything after that comes with a 25x play-through requirement. So you will likely have to bet a lot to reach the full $500 bonus.
Still, DraftKings is the best app and it’s the best place for your action.
For those of you who have casino allegiance, there’s also BetRivers. BetRivers is owned by Rush Street Interactive and launched in partnership with French Lick Casino in Indiana.
BetRivers is Rush’s sports betting brand going forward. Their online sportsbook in Indiana features mostly the same lines as DraftKings as they use the same backend provider, Kambi, but BetRivers does not offer an iOS app. You can still bet on iPhones and iPad, but it requires you to use the mobile web. Their Android app is good and works well, but it’s not quite as polished as DraftKings’ offering.
New users can get their first deposit matched up to $250 at BetRivers.
Those are the two best places to bet on NFL Week 5 action in Indiana. Next week, FanDuel Sportsbook will enter the market, with several other leading sports betting apps joining the fray in Indiana soon.
