Where are we right now with sports betting in Tennessee?
The Volunteer State became the fourth state in 2019 to legalize sports betting following Montana, Iowa and Indiana in doing so.
This means, for the very first time, the people of Tennessee will be able to wager on their favorite sports, legally.

Before the NFL season kicks off, sometime before the end of the year or at the beginning of 2020 - your guess is as good as ours.

As you’ll discover below, it’s a factor which will see Tennessee approach sports betting a whole new way.
