The NFL is the latest American sports league to sign official betting deals. The league announced that three sportsbooks would become its official betting partners, providing access to league statistics and allowing sportsbook operators to promote their relationships with the league. The partnership will give sportsbooks a way to tie their brands with on-air and online statistics. The league can decide to opt out after the first two years.
Several sportsbooks are already offering official betting to their fans. For example, DraftKings, BetMGM, and FanDuel have signed multiyear deals with the NHL. These partnerships will allow sportsbooks to offer custom content and betting options to fans throughout the league. The partnership is also expanding into Canada, where sports wagering was legalized last summer.
The PGA TOUR is also aligning with the American Gaming Association, which was formed to protect consumers from gambling addiction. PGA TOUR has implemented a robust integrity program to combat potential problem gambling. It also works closely with Genius Sports to license live scoring data from tournaments. In addition, the Tour is a platinum member of the National Council on Problem Gambling and is aligned with the Have A Game Plan campaign.
In addition to official betting, bettors can place wagers on the games of their favorite teams. In Arizona, Caesars Sportsbook Arizona and BetMGM Arizona are official betting partners for the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Arizona Cardinals. BetMGM Arizona offers retail sports betting in State Farm Stadium.
