NFL Signs Official Betting Deals
NFL has become the last major American sports league to sign an official betting deal. Three sportsbooks have been named NFL’s official betting partners, and will be receiving official league data and statistics. In return, the betting partners will promote their association with the league, and tie their brand to official league statistics. If the five-year deal holds up, the NFL will be paid nearly $1 billion. In addition, the NFL can opt out at any time after the first three years.
Unlike previous sports betting laws, this deal will provide sports fans with a variety of benefits. The NFL will continue to provide free, live updates on the results and standings of games, which will help fans make better decisions about who to bet on. And if you don’t like the current odds, you can always try your luck at an offline sportsbook. A new PGA Tour betting agreement is in the works for the 2015 season.
To ensure that fans are aware of the changes, the league has worked with FanDuel and its CEO to develop odds-based content. The company will also have rights to use the PGA TOUR’s marks and advertise within TOUR media. The deal also allows FanDuel to distribute highlights of events to their fan base. Ultimately, the NFL wants to maintain the integrity of its game and the integrity of the game. There are no guarantees, but it will take a lot of work to make sure that it is run smoothly.
