The NFL has become one of the latest American sports leagues to sign official betting deals. The league announced three sportsbooks to be its official betting partners. These partners will get official league data and promotions as well as tie their brands to team statistics. The deal is worth nearly $1 billion if the league keeps the agreements. If not, the league can opt out after three years. So how does it work? Here’s what it means. Basically, the NFL will provide data and statistics to betting partners.
The first event for the partnership was the Memorial Tournament. The Liberty team is one of the original eight franchises in the WNBA. They play their home games at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The team was founded by Joe Tsai, the majority owner of the Brooklyn Nets. BetMGM and IMG ARENA have since become official betting partners with the Knicks, Rangers and Madison Square Garden. In addition to the Liberty, BetMGM and Betway have also announced partnerships with six NHL/NASL teams.
DraftKings has also become the official sports betting partner of the MLB. In addition to being an official daily fantasy partner of the NFL, the company is also an official betting partner of the MLB. It also has partnerships with the NBA, PGA TOUR and UFC. Additionally, it owns the Vegas Sports Information Network (VSIN), a multi-platform television network that airs MLB games. Whether you’re a sports fan or not, you can bet on your team’s next big game!
