The NFL has signed an official betting deal with three sportsbooks to promote its partnership with sports betting. Not only will these companies be able to get access to the league’s official data, but they will also be able to promote their relationship with the league. These deals will tie the brands of the sportsbooks to the stats that are shown on TV and online. The league will have an option to opt out of the deal after the third and fourth year.
The rules for determining when a bet becomes official are different for every sportsbook. For example, DraftKings will void your bet if the game is canceled within 36 hours. In contrast, BetMGM requires that a bet become official when the home team is leading or when the game reaches five innings.
The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act is no longer governing how bookmakers can offer sports betting. As a result, bookmakers can legally use NBA logos on their odds boards. The decision doesn’t preclude other sports leagues from making similar deals. In fact, the CEO of William Hill U.S. said his company receives calls from teams every day seeking sponsorship deals.
Sports betting in Arizona is available both online and in retail outlets. Several Arizona casinos have partnerships with online sportsbooks. For example, Caesars and TPC Scottsdale both offer MLB betting. Moreover, Arizona sportsbooks also have a retail location inside Chase Field. This allows sports betting enthusiasts to place their bets with the teams they love.
