NFL Announces New Official Betting Partners
NFL will have official betting partners this season. The NFL recently announced a multiyear agreement with DraftKings, FanDuel, and Caesars Entertainment to develop and distribute NFL betting content. The partnership paves the way for betting content to appear on NFL Network broadcasts this fall. Official betting partners will be allowed to advertise their relationship with the league. They will also be permitted to link their brands with league statistics. Although NFL and its partners have not yet announced which betting partners will be affiliated with which team, the deal is expected to be lucrative for both parties.
After the Supreme Court’s decision, Delaware and Pennsylvania became legal states for sports betting. Delaware began accepting bets in June 2018, while Delaware is looking into mobile betting. In Oregon, lawmakers approved sports betting in 2020 but the official start of betting was delayed due to lawsuits. A judge ruled that an agreement between the Seminole Tribe and Hard Rock Sportsbook was illegal. Although Hard Rock Sportsbook and the Seminole Tribe launched an app on Nov. 1, 2021, it has since pulled it down due to the ongoing legal battle.
In addition, PointsBet recently signed a third major sports betting deal, becoming the official betting partner for the NFL. In addition to the NBA and XFL, it has expanded its presence in the US with the launch of a PointsBet Indiana online betting site. The company’s apps will also provide exclusive data and analytics. Those in New York should make sure to install them on their smartphones whenever they want to bet on a game. This is especially true if you’re betting on a team that’s not the Tennessee Titans.
