Scoreboard has since been seamlessly replaced by DraftKings Sportsbook, as a result of DraftKing's acquisition of SBTech (the developer of the Scoreboard app) back in 2020.

NBA betting

Sports have had a long time tradition in the Beaver State.

From horse racing to greyhound racing, baseball to football and much more, sports have always been part of the state’s culture. Today, Oregon is proud to have two professional teams with great fan bases.

The Portland Trail Blazers are one of the most traditional teams in the National Basketball Association (NBA)

The Blazers won one NBA title back in 1977 and were a solid contender in the 90s, reaching the finals twice in 1990 and 1992.

Unfortunately, there was a guy named Michael Jordan, who led the Chicago Bulls to six titles over that decade, one of them over the Blazers in '92.

The Blazers have been strong in recent years led by a young core that could make the team a NBA title contender once more.

Betting on the Blazers

Fancy a wager on the Blazers? Before you begin, read up on some of the common wagers:

Money line - the most simple bet requires you to pick the outright winner of a game. Popular across all sports.

Point spread - a spread is the margin of points a favored team must win the game by, or the set number of points the underdog will need to lose by for the wager to pay out. Very popular with football and basketball fans.

Futures - if you can see the Blazers winning the Western Conference for instance, you can place a futures wager. Betting before the competition or event begins yields better odds.

Oregon Sports teams

The other professional team in Oregon is the Portland Timbers of the Major League Soccer, MLS.

Though not a very popular sport across the nation, soccer has found a home in the state of Oregon with the Timbers having fans known for their enthusiastic support.

Oh, let’s not forget about college sports. The University of Oregon and the Oregon State University have been strong in both college football and basketball for many years.

The Oregon Ducks are one of the top football college programs in the country

The Ducks have won the PAC12 conference several times for the delight of its huge fan base. The Oregon State Beavers also draw big crowds for its home games and is often a contender, not only, in football but basketball as well.

Unfortunately, due to an apparent conflict of interest in proceeds from the lottery benefitting higher education in Oregon, the legislation does not allow for betting on collegiate sports. Betting on the Ducks and The Beavers is therefore off limits.

Oregon Sports Betting: How we got here

Oregon is no stranger to sports betting.

The Beaver State were one of four states exempt from the federal ban on sports betting under the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) of 1992.

Oregonians were able to partake in a parlay sports betting game called Sports Action, run by the state’s lottery.

Subsequently, when the US Supreme Court ruled PASPA as unconstitutional in 2018, Oregon were in the fortunate position of already possessing the legal authority to launch sports betting.

This meant that unlike other states needing to enact new pieces of legislation, The Beaver State were able to offer sports betting under the existing law.
