The NFL has partnered with betting companies to bring sports betting to fans. The league has struck multiyear deals with DraftKings, FanDuel, and Caesars Entertainment to add betting content to NFL Network broadcasts. The new deals will allow fans to place bets during the game and receive exclusive odds.
Official betting on the PGA Tour has seen a significant rise in popularity since the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize sports betting in some U.S. states. As of early 2019, the amount of money wagered with PGA Tour official betting operators was up nearly 50 percent, and the number of total bets increased by 40 percent. This is a positive sign for golf betting, and future growth is expected. However, the future of golf betting remains unclear, and there are many questions that need to be answered.
The NFL has also sought to protect itself from the negative effects of sports betting. The league has provided players with gambling-related training and has used the best monitoring systems to ensure that its players are honest and fair. The NFL also aims to eliminate corruption in the sports betting industry. This move comes at a time when cord-cutting is disrupting traditional businesses in sports and betting.
While official betting is not legal in all states, sports betting has become legal in the District of Columbia. GambetDC, Caesars Sports, and BetMGM are among the many sports betting apps available in the area.
