This ranking only list online sports betting websites authorized in the state of Illinois.

Illinois has one of the most storied local sports markets of any American city. With the Bulls, Bears, Cubs, and White Sox all being legendary franchises, it's no wonder that Illinois residents like to bet on sports.

In June 2019 state lawmakers approved a bill that provided for the massive expansion of gambling in Illinois. Online sports betting was one of the measures approved, and it has taken some time for the state to award sportsbook licenses. Licensees have also needed time to get their online and mobile betting platforms in place. It seemed like March 2020 was the target for online sportsbooks to launch, but everything was slowed down by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Offline sportsbooks in Illinois were able to take their first bets in March 2020 as expected, but online sportsbooks in the state are still trying to move forward. Once these sportsbooks open the residents of Illinois will have a full sports wagering menu available on their computer, phone, or tablet.

In Illinois players may make single game wagers as well as parlays. Sportsbooks offer money line wagering, straight line wagering, and many types of exotic wagers. All online gambling in Illinois is regulated by the Illinois Gaming Board. This five-member board is responsible for making sure that all games are fair to players.

The lines for online and offline sports betting in Illinois are set by professional oddsmakers and are comparable to the betting lines that are offered in Las Vegas and Atlantic City.
