Sports Illustrated Launches Official Sportsbook

Sports Illustrated has been a media powerhouse for years, and the magazine decided to use that as a platform for a branded online sportsbook. It partnered with well-known international gambling brand 888 Holdings to launch an online and mobile-friendly sportsbook that features a large selection of odds boosts. In addition to a hefty selection of American sports, the SI Sportsbook also offers a number of Asian-based betting markets and is available in more than a few languages.

The NFL is one of the most popular types of sports in America and its wagers are typically made on spreads, totals or moneylines. However, live betting is also a hugely popular way to place a wager on an NFL game. These bets, which are placed during the course of play, allow bettors to take advantage of the swerving of the ball, the adjustments of each team’s line and the momentum of each player.

The legality of sports betting in the United States is varied by state. While many states have passed legislation that allows for legalized sports betting, some have yet to fully develop the market. This is particularly true of Florida, which remains embroiled in a complex tribal-state court battle. As a result, it’s hard to predict which states will be first to roll out legal sports betting in the future.
