The NFL is the latest American sport league to sign an official betting deal. The league has named three sportsbooks as its official betting partners. The deal will grant them access to official league data and will allow them to promote their relationship with the league. The sportsbook will receive on-air and online statistics that will tie their brand to the league. NFL teams may opt out of the deal after the first two years.
The PGA TOUR has partnered with bet365 to launch an official betting solution and content product. This partnership will allow sportsbooks to take bets on every lap of every race. The company, based in Stoke-on-Trent, UK, will be the exclusive source of odds on leaderboards, player pages, and TOURCast, the sportsbook’s immersive 3D renderings of every shot.
In addition, every sportsbook will have different rules when it comes to deciding which bets are officially considered official. Some sportsbooks may void a bet if the game is postponed or cancelled. DraftKings, for example, requires a game to be rescheduled within 36 hours. On the other hand, bets are considered official if the game is five innings or more, or if the home team leads the game by 4.5 innings.
In addition to the NFL, the NBA has signed a partnership with MGM bookmakers. The deal allows the books to use the logos of the league on the oddsboard. The NFL has also signed a partnership with Caesars Sportsbook in Arizona. The sportsbook has a retail location at Chase Field. The Arizona Diamondbacks have also partnered with Caesars Sportsbook to offer MLB betting.
