Oregon Lottery Scoreboard app: Beginner’s guide to sports betting, understanding odds, lines, bet types and m – OregonLive
The Oregon Lottery Scoreboard App is live, and despite more than a few hiccups before and during the early days of the launch, the app has seen quite a rush of action as Oregonians over the age of 21 got their first chance to bet on sports in real time with their smartphones.
Through the first weekend since its launch on Oct. 16, the Scoreboard app had seen 18,116 registrations and 55,880 bets with over $1 million wagered. The NFL’s Week 7 Sunday Night Football game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys was the most popular event of the weekend and 62 percent of all wagers were on football while soccer (10 percent), basketball (9 percent), baseball (8 percent), hockey (7 percent) and other sports (4 percent) made up the rest.
With the World Series underway, the NFL nearly at the midway point of the regular season and the Portland Trail Blazers’ 2019-20 NBA season getting underway, we’ve put together a quick guide on how to get started with the Oregon Lottery’s Scoreboard app, what you need to know about it and then some quick betting terms, explanations and basics you should know before you start throwing your hard-earned dollars at bets on your favorite teams.
