Closest Sports Betting Location to Each MLB Ballpark in 2022

The 2022 Major League Baseball season begins on April 7. On Opening Day, MLB betting fans of 11 different teams will be able to legally wager using betting apps from their seat at the ballpark. With that in mind, Bookies.com examined the distance from each MLB stadium to the closest spot people can legally and safely wager on sports.

Sports betting in Ontario goes live on April 4, just in time for the Blue Jays' 2022 opener three days later against the Texas Rangers at Rogers Centre.

Those watching the Yankees and Mets play at home can also bet live from the ballpark for the first time in 2022, following the launch of online sports betting in New York in January. Those watching the Phillies, Pirates, Cubs, White Sox, Nationals, Tigers, Diamondbacks and Rockies play at home will be able to bet on-site again this year.

Furthest & Closest MLB Betting Locations

The shortest trek from home plate to betting location can be found in Baltimore. The Caesars Sportsbook at the Horseshoe Baltimore is a 0.7-mile walk from Camden Yards on Russell Street. It takes 14 minutes, according to Google Maps.

The longest trek for baseball fans to make a legal wager belongs to those few souls backing the Miami Marlins. If you want to legally wager on sports in the United States and find yourself at LoanDepot Park in Miami, expect to make a 770-mile drive via I-75 to the Chick-Fil-A in East Ridge, Tennessee. There, you can safely park, grab some nuggets, and wager legally on MLB odds through several mobile apps that operate in the Volunteer State.

The longest trek in the American League belongs to Tampa Bay Rays who find themselves watching their team play at home but want to legally bet in the U.S. They have to head to Biloxi, Mississippi. That means a 563-mile drive from Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.

Mobile sports betting was briefly legal in Florida last year before a gaming compact between the state and Seminole Tribe was deemed void by a federal judge.
