As New Jersey sports betting grows, more companies continue to enter the marketplace. That’s good news for bettors, especially now since theScore Sportsbook is the latest to get in on the sports betting action. That’s right, theScore sports betting is now live.
Many sports fans may already know a bit about this Toronto-based media company from its website and sports app. The platform offers a unique site and mobile app with scores, stories, and all things sports.
Company officials have now parlayed its media success into a mobile betting presence and bring another option to the Garden State.

New Player Bonuses at theScore
Players signing up for the first time can expect a nice reward for giving theScore a look. Many sports bettors test out differing wagering platforms for a shot at some free bets. There are no strings attached for that no deposit bonus beyond signing up for an account.

Readers of PlayNJ can also access the new player bonus (and perhaps a few extras) by using our exclusive bonus code offer. The offer will be released once theScore app is live:

Players can deposit from anywhere in the US but must be physically in New Jersey to wager. TheScore will make use of geolocation to follow New Jersey’s gaming regulations.
However, gamblers in neighboring states can easily deposit and pop over the border for a few wagers. They can make a deposit ahead of time and be ready to wager next time they’re in the Garden State.
theScore Sportsbook app
TheScore Bet is available to iOS and Android users as a separate (but complementary) betting app with its current sports app. Downloading is as simple as a visit to the Apple App Store or Google Play store.
Once the app downloads, getting set up is easy (see “Signing up for an account” below).
Reasons to choose theScore
- It’s a proven media property with vast sports knowledge.
- Seamless access to sports information via theScore app and website.
- Opportunities for some nice new player bonus value.
Known for its sports information and media services, theScore brings that wealth of knowledge to sports betting. The platform has a license through its partnership with New Jersey’s Monmouth Park Racetrack.
As part of its new entry into the market, theScore is making use of the startup Bet.Works to provide its betting platform. Bet.Works is new to the industry but hopes to offer a complete sports betting solution.
The company promises a high-tech betting option with excellent security, noting that its core principles are “integrity, quality, and performance.” New Jersey is its first foray into sports betting, but the company promises a top-notch product.
Reaching players shouldn’t be too difficult. TheScore boasts 4 million active users of its sports app and sends 1.5 billion sports-related alerts to users monthly. The site reported that it reached 50 million sports enthusiasts via social and emerging platforms in the third quarter of 2018.
The sports platform is easy to use and players can easily follow their favorite teams. There’s a good chance that the same quick and easy navigation also comes to the sports betting app. Users can easily filter news and information to suit their interests.
That news and information may be a key aspect to help differentiate theScore from other platforms already in the market. Users can easily access the latest up-to-date information before making selections.
There’s a good chance the platform will allow theScore to ramp up its information and news offerings. That should include much more geared more toward bettors.
Betting on theScore
Football season is here, along with the NHL and NBA, so making those wagers on theScore couldn’t be easier. Players can simply take out their mobile device or head online to book some action.
All the traditional wagers one would find in a sportsbook will be available including:
- Point spreads or betting against the spread (ATS): A bet on one side of the point spread. The point spread can also be termed as “the line.” Books set a spread in each game to encourage action on either side. The house takes a “vig” or a percent of the overall handle.
- Totals or over/under: A bet based on the total number of points scored between two teams in a game. If the Cowboys play the Redskins, the total or over/under might be listed by the sportsbook as 45. If a player bets the under and the final score is 27-24, that player will lose the bet as the score went over because of 27+24= 51.
- Moneyline: This is a bet in which a bettor simply has to pick the right team to win. However, payouts are less depending on the odds.
- Futures: Wagers on some future event, such as betting a team before the season to win the Super Bowl or World Series.
- Parlays: Wagers in which a person selects more than one outcome that must occur sometime in the future or at the end of the season (such as a team to win the Super Bowl or the World Series). The payout will be higher based on the number of events, but if one part of the bet doesn’t come through, then the entire bet is a loss. Bettors like making these wagers because if all the parlay legs hit, there’s an opportunity for a big payout.
- Teaser: A type of parlay where a bettor can move the point spread in his or her favor but results in a lower payout.
Sports Available on theScore
Many bettors have their favorite sports they like to wager while others like a little action on many differing events. TheScore will likely aim to please with a vast array of betting options.
Those making use of the app will find plenty to check out. There will be an option for every type of sports fan and wagering offerings include:
- Football (NFL and CFL)
- Mixed martial arts
Beyond the traditional wagers on professional sports, like most books theScore also offers betting on college games. That’s good news for bettors, especially those ready for football season or March Madness. However, as with all sportsbooks in New Jersey and according to state regulations, no action will be taken on NJ college teams in or outside the state.
Signing Up for an Account
Now that you know all about theScore Sportsbook, you may be interested in getting online and signing up. This will likely be a quick process that takes advantage of those sign-up and first deposit bonuses.

Players can then take advantage of the $10 no deposit bonus and decide if they want to continue.
Making a Deposit
Like many other mobile and online sportsbooks, making a deposit will be easy at theScore Sportsbook. Several methods that are common in NJ may be available. Security with deposits and accounts is imperative for theScore and Bet.Works platform.
Here’s a look at how players might be able to deposit funds into their new account:
- Prepaid Card
- Echeck/ACH transfers
- Visa or Mastercard
Players out for some horse racing or simulcast betting at Monmouth Park Racetrack will also be able to head to a cashier to make a deposit to their account. It’s a simple transaction and should only take a couple of minutes. Players will need to bring their username and driver’s license.
Making a Withdrawal
Maybe that deposit bonus paid off. The bettor had some luck in a few basketball games or that big wager on the Super Bowl paid off. It may be time to withdraw a few dollars for that next vacation or a nice shopping spree.
Taking money out of the account will also be a simple process. Players will need to visit their account page to initiate the withdrawal process. They could have several options including:
- Cash from a cashier at Monmouth Park Racetrack (bring your ID and username)
- Bank transfer (if you’ve used this method for deposit)
Withdrawals may take a couple of days to complete, but theScore will be guaranteed the security of player funds.
Players can also request to receive a check for their winnings. Expect about 14 days to receive the payment in the mail.
Customer Service and Support
If players have a question or need some help with an issue, customer service at theScore is there to help. Players may want to first check out the FAQ section on theScore’s website or on the app itself. May questions about the platform may be answered there.
Your deposit is made, and you’re ready for the kickoff or the dropping of the puck. TheScore offers handicappers, plenty of betting information and analysis. Grab your mobile device and place those bets. That nice winning withdrawal might be right around the corner.
