The NFL is now officially betting on your sport, allowing fans to wager while watching their favorite teams play. NFL broadcasters are now adding sportsbook content to their broadcasts, enabling fans to place bets on every game’s line and spread.
While most NFL fans have never had the chance to bet, there are plenty of ways to get into the action. You can download sports betting apps for iOS devices or visit an online betting site to place a bet on your favorite team. In Illinois, you can sign up for a new mobile betting site right now.
As the NFL and other sports leagues look to diversify their broadcasts, they are also taking steps to integrate gambling into the equation. The NFL has forged partnerships with betting operators to help them monetize their content. This includes a “risk free” offer that allows you to receive a refund if you lose a bet.
For its part, the PGA TOUR has established an integrity program. It has partnered with IMG Arena and Genius Sports to license live scoring data. And it is a platinum member of the National Council on Problem Gambling.
Aside from the official NBA and NFL gaming partnerships, the league has also announced a partnership with DraftKings. The two companies have forged a multi-year deal that will allow the two entities to generate a huge amount of revenue.
The PGA TOUR is also aligned with the American Gaming Association. The two organizations will work together to create a robust gambling content initiative.
