Ohio sports betting promos, along with the sites, are finally coming on Jan. 1, so that means you won’t need to come up with excuses anymore about why you just have to drive to West Virginia.

BetOhio has 7 questions to ask yourself if you want to join in on the fun . . . in a responsible way

That means enhancing your enjoyment of the games, and not wagering money you can't afford to lose. Sometimes success can mean screaming at your TV with your buddies and just breaking even. 

7 Questions to Ask Yourself to Be a Successful Ohio Sports Bettor

1) Do You Have Disposable Income?

If not, remember, gambling is not a job, so don't wager with an expectation of income.

If you do have disposable income, make sure your spouse agrees that you haven’t promised it for a new dining room set and you are free to do with it as you wish.

2) Do You Know Ohio’s Sports Betting Operators?

BetOhio has you covered here, so start doing your research for the best deals and odds.

Stay close to this site in particular for the best Ohio sportsbook recommendations. 

3) Do You Know the Difference Between a Point Spread, a Moneyline and an Over/Under?

If not, start learning. If you’re not going to put in the work, you may as well just put your money into crypto company FTX.

4) Are You Obsessed with the Ohio Sports Scene?

You don’t have to bet on every sport, but you should know the Bengals, Browns, Guardians, Reds, Cavaliers, Blue Jackets, Crew and Buckeyes. 

And there will often be money to be made across Ohio sports betting apps on other college programs like Xavier, Cincinnati, Kent St., Ohio U., Miami (OH), Wright St., Toledo, Akron, Cleveland St., Dayton, and more.

5) Can You Bet Against Your Favorite Team?

Even if the Reds are your favorite baseball team, could you live with yourself if you bet on the Cardinals to win the NL Central? If not, do not bet on baseball. 

6) What is Muirfield Village?

If you said a retirement community, shame on you.

7) Do You Have the Willpower to Stop When Things are Not Going Well?

Sports betting should be fun, but if you find you have a problem, do reach out for help. A gambling addiction can be no different than a drug addiction. If you’re struggling, call the Ohio Problem Gambling Hotline 24/7 at 1-800-589-9966.
