How To Bet On The Super Bowl In Missouri Legally

It is the Friday before Super Bowl LVIII, and fans in the Kansas City, Missouri, region are hoping that their beloved Chiefs will win a third Lombardi Trophy in a five-year span. The San Francisco 49ers are favored to win by a 2-point spread, but the KC faithful and anyone paying attention to NFL football knows that a Patrick Mahomes loss is never certain until the final whistle blows.

This year, the big game is being held in Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium, home of the Raiders. While Nevada locals and those lucky enough to attend Super Bowl 58 in person have all the spoils of Vegas at their disposal, what about folks who want to place an NFL bet in Missouri?

MO-based gamblers have a couple of options if they want to bet on the Kansas City Chiefs or the San Francisco 49ers in SB 58, and not all of them require traveling to another state.

Super Bowl Betting At Domestic Sportsbooks

Missouri doesn’t allow in-state sports betting, but nearly every bordering region offers either in-person, online, or mobile sportsbooks. Arkansas, Tennessee, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, and Kansas all feature mobile Super Bowl betting apps that are available to smartphone and tablet users as soon as they enter any of these states.

Each of these neighboring states requires a minimum age of 21 to bet on sports, except for Tennessee, where mobile sportsbook apps are available to anyone 18 and older.

In-person sportsbooks are available in Nebraska. Oklahoma has yet to pass sports betting laws, but recent comments made by Governor Stitt suggest that sportsbooks could be on their way. If the Governor’s plan is passed, in-person and mobile sports betting apps will be split amongst tribal and retail operators.

Offshore Super Bowl Betting In MO

One common element that Missouri shares with all legal Super Bowl betting states is a lack of any gambling laws pertaining to offshore sportsbooks. Their international status places their operations outside of the jurisdiction of the USA.

A recent ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States regarding Florida’s gaming compact with the Seminole Tribe implies that online gambling occurs where the server is located. Technically, the Super Bowl gambling is taking place in the country where the sportsbook is located.

The servers of reputable international sportsbooks are located in countries where online sports betting is legal. Super Bowl bets can be placed in MO by anyone who meets the minimum age of a given sports betting site and also has a web-connected device.

The Super Bowl sportsbooks we recommend here at LSBB are located overseas and are the best option for betting on Super Bowl 58 in MO.
