Mississippi Sports Betting Promos & Bonus Codes

August 19, 2022

In 2018, Mississippi is one of the states that have legalized sports betting in the United States. However, unlike in other states, online betting for Mississippi is still limited within the casino property.

This means residents can participate in online sports betting when they are currently inside one of the licensed casinos around the area. Anyone can make their online sportsbook account from anywhere but for transactions and placing a wager, they have to be in a casino.

BetMGM sportsbook is the first sportsbook to launch in Mississippi in September 2021. Yet, in order to place bets and do transactions, users must go to one of MGM’s casinos in Mississippi.

You can still take advantage of some of the best promotions from BetMGM in Mississippi which are available in August 2022, like the ones listed here.

Sports Teams to Bet on in Mississippi

Mississippi is unique in that it lacks a professional sports team. But that's never been an issue in Mississippi. Judging by how close Louisiana is to Mississippi, sports enthusiasts might also bet on New Orleans teams such as NFL’s Saints or NBA’s Pelicans. Many Mississippi residents also love the Atlanta Braves in MLB.

Which team to bet on in Mississippi?

Mississippi is unique in that it lacks a professional sports team. But that's never been an issue in Mississippi. Judging by how close Louisiana is to Mississippi, sports enthusiasts might also bet on New Orleans teams such as NFL’s Saints or NBA’s Pelicans. On the NCAA Division II Sports Team, they have Delta State Statesmen and Mississippi College Choctaws that you can bet on NCAA sports. However, it is unclear whether betting on college sports is allowed right now. 

The New Orleans Saints have been a part of the Big Easy since their establishment in 1967. As of 2006, the team has been coached by Sean Payton and led by quarterback Drew Brees. The pair helped the team win their first Super Bowl in 2009, but both retired by 2021. 

The Ole Miss Rebels represent the University of Mississippi and are one of the state's most dominant athletic programs. The Ole Miss Rebels football team has a 64-45-6 series lead over the Mississippi State Bulldogs in the Egg Bowl. The Rebels also won three national titles from 1959 to 1962.

The Rebels have a history of producing NFL players. Archie and Eli Manning are perhaps the most famous quarterback father-son duo.

The Rebels aren't quite as strong in men's basketball. They have only made it to the NCAA tournament nine times, with their best finish in 2001 being the Sweet Sixteen.

The Mississippi State Bulldogs are a regular in the annual ‘March Madness' NCAA Tournament. In the 2000s, they qualified six times. Their best ever performance came in 1996 when they reached the Final Four. It's safe to say that the Bulldogs will be looking to build on their success in 2019. On the football field, the Bulldogs often trail their rivals, the Ole Miss Rebels. Since 2010, the team has won seven Bowl Games.
