Sports betting is legal in Ohio and there are a variety of online and brick and mortar sportsbooks to choose from. You can legally bet on NFL, college, and professional sports, including in-state college football and basketball games. Licensed sportsbooks offer great features, competitive odds, and real life rewards.
One of the most popular online sportsbooks in the United States is DraftKings. They have been betting on the PGA TOUR since June of 2018. The TOUR announced that they will become an official partner, granting them the right to use the marks of the tour, in-game promotions, and pre-game betting programming.
BetPARX is also an official partner of the PGA Tour. As a mobile sportsbook sponsor of the Memorial Tournament, betPARX will have access to the tour’s video highlights and marks, which will help to elevate their experience. This is the first time that a sports betting company has been designated as an official betting operator of a major PGA event.
In addition, the UFC announced a new groundbreaking agreement with DraftKings, granting them the rights to use the league’s marks and to bet on the games. It also gives the company the right to produce and distribute pre-game betting programming, advertise on the TOUR’s media, and create branded fan experiences during Memorial Tournament.
The Cleveland Browns, the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Cleveland Guardians have all signed deals with sports betting sites. There is no word on the exact date that Fanatics will launch a sportsbook in Ohio, but the company has received a conditional license from the Ohio Casino Control Commission.
