The NFL is the last major American sports league to sign an official betting deal, and it is the last to do so. The NFL has announced three sportsbooks that will serve as its official betting partners, giving them access to official league data. This way, the sportsbooks will be able to leverage their affiliation with the NFL by advertising their brands, and vice versa. If the five-year deal holds, the NFL will receive nearly $1 billion in revenue from these partnerships. However, the NFL can opt out after three years if it doesn’t want it.
The PGA TOUR is also aligned with the National Council on Problem Gambling. The NCPGA regulates sports betting, and the PGA TOUR and BetMGM have partnered to help people stay away from gambling. The PGA TOUR also has a comprehensive integrity program, and they have partnered with IMG ARENA and Genius Sports to license live scoring data to their customers. This way, bettors can be sure that their money is safe and that their bets are honored. In addition, these sports betting sites have legal protections for consumers.
When placing a bet, many issues can arise. Make sure the sports betting website has a good customer support system. Incorrect information and unresponsive customer support can result in you losing your wager, or worse, losing any potential winnings. Withdrawals and refunds can take weeks or months to process, so be patient and contact the support team for help. Many sports betting apps have active social media pages, and there are multiple channels for help.
