Official betting deals have become common for many American sports leagues, including the NFL. The NFL recently announced three sportsbooks as official betting partners. These sportsbooks will have access to official league data and can promote their relationship with the league by linking their brands with statistics. If the deal is signed, the league will receive nearly $1 billion over five years. The league can opt out after three years, though. Official betting deals have become increasingly popular with the general public, thanks to their growing popularity.
Wagr is one of the official betting partners of Nashville SC, which opened its new soccer-specific stadium GEODIS Park on Sunday. The city of Nashville has embraced the MLS club in their third season, with a raucous atmosphere at Nissan Stadium and in its new stadium. The Nashville SC has gone unbeaten at home in its first two years in the MLS, thanks in part to their new home venue. Official betting partners will be able to participate in the PGA Tour games in real-time, which will allow fans to place bets on winners during the tournament.
A new mobile sportsbook recently launched in Tennessee. Users can deposit money through several different methods, including PayPal, which offers the highest acceptance rate. Wagr, a social sports betting app, has been approved by the Tennessee Education Lottery. Although it hasn’t publicly launched yet in the state, it is backed by the Manning brothers and Tinder co-founder Justin Mateen. Among the first states to approve Wagr, Tennessee is the first.
