The Road to Super Bowl 54
The abrupt retirement of Andrew Luck just two weeks before the first regular season game all but guaranteed a tough 2019 NFL season for Colts fans, but Super Bowl LIV marks an exciting first for those fans. For the first time ever, Hoosiers will not be relegated to watching a Colts-less Super Bowl from the sidelines.
Legal Indiana sportsbooks will give NFL fans of all stripes across the state the opportunity to have some skin in the big game this year. With more than a dozen retail sportsbooks and four mobile betting apps currently in operation, the stage is set for a whole new type of Super Bowl experience in Indiana.
The 2020 Super Bowl betting odds are now live at all of Indiana’s retail and mobile sportsbooks. The Chiefs opened as 1.5-point favorites at DraftKings, BetRivers and FanDuel and as 1-point favorites at BetAmerica Sportsbook. The lines could very well change between now and February 2nd, but anyone interested in betting on Super Bowl LIV can do so starting right now.
Today, we begin with a look at where to bet on the 2020 Super Bowl online in Indiana and what each is offering as far as promotions and bonuses.
Where to Bet on the 2020 Super Bowl Online in Indiana
Four mobile sportsbooks are active in Indiana today and accept wagers from anyone 21 or older and physically located within state lines. Additional sportsbooks are on track to launch over coming weeks and months but as of today, Hoosiers can choose from the following:
Each holds a license from the Indiana Gaming Commission (IGC) and is a safe, regulated sportsbook to bet on the 2020 Super Bowl or any other sporting event. The IGC approval process involves investigating the financial suitability of each applicant, ensuring each has the technical capacity to comply with all state regulations and that each is run by a reputable company.
Each sportsbook is now booking wagers on the Super Bowl and will offer in-play betting on game day. DraftKings, BetRivers, FanDuel and BetAmerica are all taking a wide range of bets on the game as of today. This includes standard wagers on who will win, the point spread, player props, game props and the ever-popular novelty props such as who will win the coin toss.
Speaking of props, the IGC recently approved seven categories of proposition bets that licensed sportsbooks may accept. Under the new ruling, Indiana betting sites may accept Super Bowl props on the following in-game events:
- Coin toss outcome
- Whether or not the player will correctly call the coin toss
- Team to win coin toss and the game
- Color of Gatorade shower
- Who will the Super Bowl MVP thank first?
- Will player X retire after the game?
- Will there be a flea flicker play?
2020 Super Bowl Betting Bonuses and Promotions
Super Bowl LIV will provide the first opportunity for Indiana’s legal sportsbooks to capitalize on the single biggest betting event of the year. As DraftKings, BetRivers, FanDuel and BetAmerica seek to establish a foothold in Indiana’s newly regulated sports betting industry, look for marketing teams across the board to open their checkbooks and launch promos galore.
DraftKings Super Bowl Bonuses
DraftKings opened its Super Bowl betting odds with a massive selection of 49ers vs. Chiefs bets immediately following the conference championships. Whether it’s picking the winning team or betting on who will score the first touchdown of the game, DraftKings has an almost absurd number of betting options for the big game.
As far as promotions go, DraftKings hasn’t gotten off to as quick a start. Standard welcome bonuses and sitewide betting promotions are all available, but we will be watching closely for Super Bowl specific promos and update this post accordingly.

Betting on the Super Bowl from Chicago, Illinois and Surrounding States
Chicago-area residents and anyone else near the Indiana border should note that state law does notrequire customers be residents of Indiana. Visitors to the Hoosier state who are at least 21 years old are welcome to visit retail sportsbooks or even sign up for mobile betting accounts from out of state.
Mobile Betting from Outside Indiana
Mobile betting is particularly handy for those near the Indiana border but not near one of the state’s land-based casinos. Customers from out of state may sign up for accounts and make deposits prior to visiting Indiana. Then, when they are ready to bet, they need only cross the border and place their wagers from within Indiana state lines.
In short, sports bettors from out of state can do everything except place wagers. Anyone planning to visit Indiana to bet on the Super Bowl can sign up, make deposits and view the lines ahead of time so all they need to do once they get to Indiana is submit their wagers.
Retail Sportsbooks Near the Indiana Border
Chicago area residents have two retail sportsbooks within comfortable driving distance:
Both sportsbooks will be open for the Super Bowl and accepting wagers on game day. Horseshoe Hammond recommends visitors reserve a seat in advance, but it would probably be a good idea to call ahead to Ameristar East Chicago as well.
The closest sportsbook for fans in Southern Michigan is Blue Chip Casino, home of FanDuel Sportsbook:
The closest sportsbooks for fans in the Cincinnati area, southwestern Ohio and Northern Kentucky include:
- Hollywood Casino Sportsbook (closest to Cincinnati)
- Rising Star Casino Sportsbook
- Belterra Casino Resort Sportsbook (closest to Northern Kentucky)
Louisville also has a sportsbook just across the river, about a half-hour drive from downtown:
