As more and more states legalize sports betting, there will be many stadiums and popular places to introduce retail sportsbooks. Back in September, the Chicago Cubs and DraftKings announced a multi-year partnership that included plans for a retail version of a “DraftKings Sportsbook” in Wrigley Field. At the time, the Cubs were the first team in baseball to have plans to open a sportsbook inside the park.

Recently, Michael Cerami of BleacherNation tweeted out the proposed plans for Wrigley Field Sportsbook including what looks to be a massive area of the stadium down the right field line. Let’s take a look at what the proposed sportsbook could look like in Wrigley Field in Illinois.

DraftKings Sportsbook in Wrigley Field

As you can see, on the exterior of the Wrigley Field structure down the right field line, the plans to have the DraftKings Wrigley Field Sportsbook includes quite a sufficient area of space inside the beloved stadium. With legal sports betting being available in Illinois, bettors would be able to wager on their phones while at Cubs games, but this new proposed sportsbook allows for viewing of other sporting events that may be happening at the same time.

The proposed DraftKings Sportsbook will act as a sports bar, like many retail sportsbooks but with emphasis on bettors seeing live lines and calls to action in order to wager on the Cubs and other teams.

 

Wrigley Field Sportsbook has TV Wall and Sports Bar

Cerami is right, this place will be packed during Cubs games. Look at that TV wall, seating, and plenty of standing room to watch sports from NFL, MLB, NBA, and more. This partnership between DraftKings Sportsbook and the Cubs will certainly set a precedent, especially if the sportsbook is as popular as many believe it will be. Imagine a sportsbook at NFL stadiums or even arenas around the state (and other states).

We could see the following in the future in Illinois:

 

Bet on the Cubs at DraftKings Sportsbook in Illinois

Once the MLB returns and fans are back in the stands, Wrigley Field Sportsbook will be an attraction to those inside the ballpark. But either way, you do not have to be inside the sportsbook to wager in Illinois. Illinois is one of many states that allow for mobile betting, which means all bettors in Illinois can wager at DraftKings Sportsbook. You can wager on the Chicago Cubs in a few ways, including before the season starts.

Here’s a look at some Cubs betting markets as the MLB season approaches.

  • Cubs to Win the World Series (+4000)
  • Cubs to Win the National League (+2200)
  • Cubs to Win the NL Central (+400)

Other betting markets such as the Cy Young and MVP odds will be available as the MLB season approaches, and Anthony Rizzo and Kyle Hendricks will likely be listed near the top of the board for each National League award. Once the season begins, you can wager on the Cubs (and all MLB games) at DraftKings Sportsbook.
