The New York Gaming Commission (NYGC) is enacting legislation that bans over/under betting on daily fantasy platforms such as PrizePicks and Underdog.
New York is the fourth state to ban such styles of wagering, which have grown exponentially over recent years. Though the over/under type of betting is not technically sports betting, it is considered as such by the NYGC and is difficult to regulate without the proper classification.
Proponents of daily over/under betting were allowed to provide comments until late September. The NYGC received several letters in support of the now-banned style of wagering but did not adhere to their pleas.
