Official betting partnerships are growing rapidly in the US. The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act kept sports betting illegal across the country, but the Supreme Court has overturned that law. Since then, the number of licensed operators has increased dramatically. In just three years, nearly two dozen state markets have opened up for sports wagering. Whether you’re looking to place a bet on an NFL game or the Super Bowl, there are plenty of options available.
Many sports leagues and betting operators have embraced this growth with open arms. While they aren’t necessarily going to jump into official betting partnerships immediately, they do have plenty of opportunities to get in on the action. For instance, the PGA Tour has an exclusive partnership with FanDuel.
The NFL has a multi-year agreement with Caesars Entertainment and DraftKings. These two brands will now work together to create in-game promotions and odds generation. There are even plans for DraftKings to become the official daily fantasy partner of the UFC.
Another new operator to look out for is SaharaBets. They’ve recently signed a licensing deal with the Arizona Coyotes. This team has a troubled history, but with the help of the new partner, it could be a great opportunity for the brand.
With sports betting now legal in Arizona, there’s no reason not to give it a try. Before deciding on a sportsbook, be sure to check out the interface and special offers. You’ll want to be sure to find a site that you enjoy working with.
