NFL is the last major American sports league to sign an official betting deal. It announced three sportsbooks as official betting partners. These companies will receive official data on player and team statistics and promote their relationship with the NFL. By tying their brands to statistics, they are able to boost their brands and build their customer base. If the deal is successful, the league will receive nearly $1 billion in revenue from the three sportsbooks. It’s unclear when the NFL will opt out of the deal.
A recent Supreme Court decision legalized sports betting in many states. As a result, more people are placing bets. Despite this, some sports leagues remain concerned that the unofficial data will taint the integrity of games. However, some sports leagues are taking action to address the issue. Official betting partners may be the next step for sports organizations and leagues. Here are some of the most important benefits of official betting:
Sportsbooks can provide information about the betting odds of upcoming games. You can place a moneyline bet if you aren’t interested in point spreads. In other words, you can bet on the winner without knowing which team or player is likely to win the game. In addition, a few sports betting sites provide VIP experiences for fans during the games. It’s also important to know whether or not sports betting is legal in your state.
