Official Betting on Sports
Official betting is possible on many sports. Many professional sports teams are now available for betting on the outcome of games. This includes the NBA, NHL, PGA TOUR, and NFL. The NFL has yet to designate official betting partners. However, many teams are in the process of partnering with companies that offer betting services.
The NBA has announced new partnerships with FanDuel and DraftKings as co-official NBA betting partners. These partnerships will involve the use of official NBA data and content for in-game betting odds. These two companies will also be able to provide fans with game highlights of their favorite players. They will also be authorized to distribute NBA betting data to licensed US sportsbooks.
Official NBA betting data is provided by Genius Sports Group and Sportradar. Both firms work with the NBA to provide betting data products and maintain the integrity of NBA games.
NHL official betting offers fans a wide variety of options for wagering on their favorite team. While most bets are placed on the moneyline, there is more to the game than simply picking the winning team. Choosing a favorite can turn into a dicey proposition. Here are some things to keep in mind when betting on the NHL.
DraftKings and the NHL are already partnering for daily fantasy sports, so the deal with the sports betting company is a big step forward. The deal will give the company access to the NHL’s assets and help it to offer themed competitions during the season.
Official betting on the PGA TOUR is now available at bet365, one of the largest sports betting operators in the world. In a three-year deal, the PGA TOUR will allow betting enthusiasts to place bets on the game of golf via its website. The partnership will also include live betting odds integrations on PGA TOUR broadcasts.
A recent incident involving Cam Smith and the PGA Tour has left many fans baffled. The golfer was given a two-stroke penalty during the FedEx St. Jude Championship, the first leg of a three-leg playoff schedule. Although he did not contest the ruling, a lot of fans were understandably frustrated. Even DFS players and sports bettors were angered by the timing of the penalty.
The NFL has only recently made a move towards official betting data distribution. While the NFL has a small slate of games, the league will be keen to expand its relationship with sportsbooks. The league has begun making incremental moves to legalize sports betting, citing the dangers to the integrity of the game. In recent weeks, the NFL has announced the launch of its first “tri-exclusive” betting partners.
The league has partnered with four sportsbook operators, including BetMGM, DraftKings and Caesars Entertainment. The new agreements give these companies exclusive access to NFL data, allowing them to tie their brands to statistics and games. The league is expected to make nearly $1 billion from these partnerships over the next five years. However, they have the option to cancel the deal after the first three years. In the meantime, bettors can place their bets on unofficial betting partners.
