In the world of sports betting, official betting partnerships are a common sight. These deals bring together the industry’s movers and shakers. Often, these aren’t one-off agreements, but rather massive portfolios of relationships. One of the leading players in this space, DraftKings, has agreed on an extensive set of deals and expanded its footprint into multiple states.
The PGA Tour has announced that it is expanding its multi-year partnership with DraftKings. The agreement will see the company become the first official betting operator and Daily Fantasy Game of the PGA Tour. The agreement also includes a range of resources and tools to help those who are experiencing gambling addictions. These resources include links to support services and information on self-exclusion for a certain period of time.
In addition to offering a robust selection of markets for NHL betting, DraftKings also has NHL-exclusive boosts on certain games, such as the Stanley Cup. This can be particularly helpful for Boston Bruins fans who like to bet on other NHL games. Similarly, BetMGM offers a daily “Lion’s Boost” on select games, such as the Edmonton Oilers against the Washington Capitals.
While it is not a new concept, the NFL is taking a cautious approach to sports betting. It has found that fans like betting on sports apps rather than at in-stadium betting kiosks. The league has also carried out research on fan preferences in order to improve the quality of its offerings.
