FanDuel Sportsbook, one of the best-known names in online sports betting, will soon be launching a West Virginia online sportsbook. FanDuel is the sports betting leader in New Jersey and looks to do the same in the Mountain State.

Paddy Power Betfair purchased FanDuel in May 2018 and is now Betfair’s primary brand in the US.

No announcement official word has been made as to when FanDuel will launch. However, the West Virginia Lottery recently approved the app to operate in the Mountain State.

FanDuel will be a welcome addition to the WV sports betting market. The state has been without an online sports betting app since March of this year, and the hope is FanDuel will be online by football season.

FanDuel WV bonus offers & promotions

FanDuel Sportsbook WV offers live betting

After FanDuel Sportsbook in West Virginia launches, bettors can look for popular in play betting options. Live betting refers to betting on the action while a game is in progress.

In game betting caters to the more experienced sports bettor because it features constantly fluctuating odds and point spreads during the game. That means paying attention to both the game and odds screens simultaneously.

The key to capitalizing on live betting is to make sure your account is funded. Since the odds and spreads can change rapidly, a bettor must be quick to place the bet.
