The performance of the Arizona sports betting market.

Rush Street Interactive has recently launched in the Arizona sports betting market, experiencing strong performance in its first month of operation that rivals other states across the country.

According to GeoComply, Arizona ranked fourth in NFL betting transactions among 18 states and the District of Columbia in September, with a total of $36.9 million.

Arizona was ranked fourth in transactions, following New Jersey with 70.5 million, Pennsylvania with 64.6 million, and Michigan with 44.3 million.

Arizona’s NFL sports betting came in fourth place in terms of total transactions, making up 11.2% of the overall volume, trailing behind only three other states.

The surge in betting in the 48th State is due to the Arizona Cardinals’ remarkable 6-0 start, their best beginning since 1974.

The Cardinals are ranked third in Super Bowl betting odds at BetMGM with +450, and are also viewed as strong contenders for the title at FanDuel Sportsbook (+1000), DraftKings Sportsbook (+1100), and Caesars Sportsbook (+1100).
