Tuesday, September 13th, 2022 -- 8:03 AM
The NFL's opening weekend, not including the Monday Night Game, saw a record amount of legal online betting activity.
Axios Sports reports that there were 103.1 million sportsbook logins from Thursday through Sunday night across the 21 states (plus D.C.) where online sports betting is live and legal, per geolocation firm GeoComply.
That's up from 60.1 million during last year's opening weekend, a 71.5% increase.
New York, which didn't have legal online betting last year, led the way with 15.7 million logins, or 15.3% of the total. Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Michigan and Illinois rounded out the top five.
