The NFL will have official betting partners this season. The league recently announced multiyear deals with FanDuel, DraftKings, and Caesars Entertainment to provide betting data and other NFL content to the NFL Network. If the deal holds, the three partners will pay nearly $1 billion to the NFL in a five-year period. NFL players will also receive betting content. However, the league is able to opt out at any time. Until then, fans should stay tuned for more information about the deal.
Wagr is also the official betting partner of the Nashville SC. The team opens its first home game at GEODIS Park on Sunday after spending the first two seasons at Nissan Stadium. The raucous atmosphere of the Nashville crowd helped the team become undefeated in the MLS. The new stadium will be a big step for the team and its supporters, as well as for fans. The league will continue to expand their official betting partners as the new stadiums are built and the teams become more popular.
DraftKings also announced its new partnership with the MLB. The company’s daily fantasy sports product is available in seven countries and 15 categories. The company is the official daily fantasy partner of the NFL, MLB, PGA TOUR, and UFC. DraftKings also owns Vegas Sports Information Network, a multiplatform broadcast that airs games on the company’s website and on other platforms. The partnership will allow fans to place their bets on live games and get paid on top of the MLB.
