Official Betting Operators for Major League Baseball
The NFL has been aggressive in partnering with sports betting companies and has allowed the gambling content to seep into broadcasts. This year, they have signed deals with Caesars, DraftKings, and FanDuel. They expect to generate $270 million in revenue from these relationships this year. While this is a positive development for the NFL, the relationship is still a delicate one.
While some leagues are wary of the proliferation of gambling, others are more open to the idea of betting on sports. In New Hampshire, for example, sports betting has been legalized. Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment is making money from legal bets by partnering with PointsBet. However, some are concerned that the unofficial data provided by bookmakers will affect the integrity of the games.
In addition to partnering with The PGA TOUR, bet365 is partnering with the PGA TOUR. As the first Official Betting Operator outside of North America, bet365 will provide odds on leaderboards and player pages. The company is also working with the PGA TOUR to roll out a new video channel called TOURCast that features 3d renderings of every shot.
The Arizona Diamondbacks are based in Phoenix, and have been a franchise in the state since 1998. In 2001, they won the World Series in their fourth season, setting a record for the quickest World Series victory in MLB history. They have also partnered with Caesars Sportsbook AZ, which has a retail location in Chase Field. With this partnership, MLB fans can place their bets on Diamondbacks games in Arizona, as well as on other major sports.
