Learn About WynnBET Boston

The WynnBET Sportsbook at Encore Boston Harbor provides the only retail sportsbook experience in the immediate Boston area AND the only WynnBET-branded sports betting operation on the East Coast following the departure of the WynnBET online sports betting brand from the Bay State. The retail sportsbook opened on January 31, 2023, as retail sports betting launched in Massachusetts ahead of mobile wagering. 

The sportsbook is located in Everett, Massachusetts, along the Mystic River, and a quick 3-mile drive from downtown Boston. Housed inside the mighty Encore Boston Harbor and operated by Wynn Resorts, this retail sportsbook is the primary choice of in-person sports betting for the 4+ million residents of the Greater Boston area. 

WynnBET Boston was one of three sports betting options until March 10, 2023, when several operators went live.

Bet Types at WynnBET Boston

All of the standard sports bets that you can find at most sportsbooks are also available with Massachusetts betting apps. When you arrive at the sports bettin facility, you'll be able to place the following wagers (and more): 

Moneyline Betting

This is the most basic kind of wager, where a straight bet is placed on the winner of an event. Odds are listed with a plus sign (underdog) or minus sign (favorite). If the Patriots are at +120, they're slight underdogs, and a $100 bet on them would return a profit of $120.

Point Spread Betting

When using this kind of bet, you wager on the margin of victory, rather than just on the winner of the game. For example, if you bet on the Boston Red Sox at -1.5, the Sox has to win by 2 runs or more for the bet to win. On the other hand, if you're betting on the underdog, your team can still "cover" the spread and lose the game.

Futures Betting

Futures bets are long-term wagers, on things like the winner of the final season event or championship. An early-season bet on the Patriots to win the Super Bowl, however ill-advised, is a futures bet.

Totals or Over/Under Betting

This kind of bet is a wager on whether the combined points/goals total for an event is over or under the points line defined by the sportsbook. For instance, there might be a line of 5.5 for a game between the Boston Bruins and the New York Rangers, so you have to bet on whether you think there will be 5 goals or fewer (under) or 6 goals or more (over).

Parlay Betting

Parlay bets are a combination of two or more wagers where both outcomes must be correct for the bet to pay out money. There are plenty of parlay bets that you can make at WynnBET Boston, the possibilities can be endless!

Prop Betting

These are often considered "fun" bets since you can place a wager on a specific event, rather than on the outcome of the game overall. For instance, bettors can wager on a certain Patriots player's passing yards.
