PrizePicks is fully legal in the great state of Arizona.  Do be sure to check out all the latest consensus handicapper plays, not just for the day's games but also for individual players.  The latter is especially important where playing with PrizePicks is concerned.


Where Else Can I Play on Prizepicks?

Traveling outside Arizona?  No worries.  PrizePicks is available in most (not all) US states.

PrizePicks is available to residents 18+ in AK, AR, CA, CO, DC, FL, GA, IL, KS, KY, MI, MN, NE, NM, NC, ND, OK, OR, RI, SC, SD, TX, UT, VT, VA, WI, WY. 19+ in AL. 21+ in AZ, MA.

How Does PrizePicks Work

Simply put, PrizePicks offers a hybrid daily fantasy sports platform that is the closest thing to sports betting without requiring a license to operate as a gambling establishment. You will submit entries for multiple players to reach a set Over/Under goal.  The more players selected, the greater the cash prize, but also the longer the odds.  All the players must come through for your entry to be a winner.  The PrizePicks model mostly resembles parlays in sports betting, just with lower payouts and only involves players, not the actual games.

Comparing Odds vs. the Sportsbook

When entering your picks at PrizePicks you may wish to compare with potential payouts for individual player wagers at your favorite sportsbook.

Below are samplings for the Arizona Diamondbacks on May 31, 2023 in their game versus the Colorado Rockies.

The minus (-) sign indicates the risk will be higher than the reward.  -125, for example, means you will bet $12.50 to win $10.  That $12.50 is refunded and the $10 paid out just as long as your bet is a winner. The important thing to remember here is that only one selection is required to win, as opposed to PrizePicks where multiple selections are required.
