If you like the idea of sports wagering, you may want to consider official betting. The NFL recently signed deals with DraftKings, FanDuel and Caesars Entertainment to be its official betting partners. The deal allows the partners to offer exclusive NFL content and to integrate betting content into NFL Network broadcasts this fall. However, you should check with your local sports book to see if it offers betting options. If it does, it will probably be listed on their site.
The National Basketball Association (NBA) announced today that they have signed a multi-year agreement with BetPlay, a leading multi-channel sports betting operator. The deal also makes BetPlay the Official Betting Partner of NBA Colombia. This partnership will provide both sportsbooks and fans with the ability to place bets on their favorite teams. While sports betting in the United States is regulated in some states, it is still illegal in the majority of countries.
Since the Supreme Court decision legalized sports betting in many states, sports betting companies have begun partnering with sports leagues and organizations. The PGA Tour’s agreement with Crownbet is just one example of a growing business relationship between the league and its sports betting operators. Last season, nine out of 20 teams in the English Premier League had sponsorship deals with gambling companies. While the NBA has not yet reached such a level of growth, more partnerships may be on the horizon.
