The NFL is the latest major sports league to announce official betting deals with sportsbooks. The NFL has signed a deal with three sportsbooks to offer official betting data. In return for the official data, the betting partners can promote their partnership with the NFL through marketing and advertising. The deals will tie brands to both on-air and online stats. The NFL has the option to opt out of the official betting agreements after the third and fourth seasons. However, it is likely that it will continue to offer the deals.
