Who is PointsBet Online Sportsbook?
PointsBet is one of the newest entries into the New Jersey sports betting marketplace, having launched in 2019 under a partnership with Meadowlands Racetrack.
PointsBet was founded in 2017 in Australia and began trading solely as a spread betting service. Over the course of the next year, they added regular sports betting markets to their offerings and are now one of the major players in the Australian sports betting scene.
In mid 2018, PointsBet was granted the license to begin trading in the USA. They are currently licensed in 6 states including New Jersey, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Colorado, and Michigan. In addition, we can expect it expand into more states in the near future.
In NJ, PointsBet is licensed and regulated by the NJ Division of Gaming Enforcement.

Sports and Types of Bets Offered
The site currently lists 17 sports on which it is offering markets. These markets include all of North America’s most popular sports:
- Motor Racing
You’ll find traditional betting options:
- Point spread
- Total (over/under)
Offering fixed-odds sports betting on major US sports and popular sports overseas, PointsBet has all the popular markets. You can use PointsBet to bet on the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, UFC and Australian professional sports leagues as well.
Examples of such markets include:
- Quarterback completion percentage.
- Time, in seconds, of the first touchdown
- Player shooting percentages
- Time, in minutes, for players to pass a certain number of points.
- Time of the first touchdown (in seconds)
- Time of the first basket by a player
On top of the kinds of popular sports betting markets you’d expect at NJ online sportsbooks, PointsBet offers a unique betting market called PointsBetting: players engaging in PointsBetting win or lose beyond their initial wager based on the margin of victory or loss of their wager. In short, spread betting allows you to place wagers on almost any occurrence throughout the course of a sporting event, the amount of times it will happen or the time it will occur.
For example, if you place a $10 bet on the Knicks v Bulls to go over 200 points in a pointsbet, then if the game goes to 210 points you would then win $100 instead of the standard $10 as your selection has won by 10 clear points!
