The NFL is the last major American sports league to sign official betting agreements. This past week, the league announced three sportsbooks as its official betting partners. In return for exclusive access to league data from other sports, these partners will promote their relationship with the league and tie their brand to statistics. If the deal holds, the NFL will receive nearly $1 billion in revenue, and it can opt out after three years. That means you’ll soon be able to bet on games with your favorite NFL team.
There are eight licensed sports betting sites in New York. All of them offer mobile applications for both iOS and Android devices. Once downloaded, these apps allow you to place bets from anywhere. While these sites are legal, they’re still not available in every state. The state of New York does not allow sports betting sites based offshore. If you live in New York, though, you can still place bets at sportsbooks. However, don’t expect to have access to all of the sports you love.
Another factor to consider is customer service. There are many issues that can occur when placing bets on sports, and if you have a problem, the customer support service on your chosen site or app is essential. Poor customer service could result in you losing your wagers or your potential winnings. Moreover, you may find that withdrawing your money takes weeks or months. Therefore, you should find an app that provides several ways to reach a support representative.
