Sports betting has become a popular way to make money in the sports industry. It has increased engagement and viewership, which helps the leagues and teams increase the value of advertising. As a result, many sports leagues have made partnerships with sportsbooks and gaming entities. The NFL, for example, recently approved the formation of team-sportsbook partnerships. The Denver Broncos, for example, announced a partnership with Betfred and FanDuel in June 2020. Other major leagues are now seeking to sign deals with sportsbooks and gaming companies related to sports betting.
Lawmakers need to pass legal sports betting legislation
New Jersey voters approved a constitutional amendment legalizing sports betting last fall, but lawmakers still have a long way to go before the state can fully legalize it. After repealing a law that prohibited sports betting, lawmakers need to pass legislation to create the regulations and rules for sanctioned sports betting. The governor’s office has been working behind the scenes to get the legislation passed. The state Senate president, Stephen M. Sweeney, said that if lawmakers can pass the bill before June 30, people in New Jersey will be able to place bets legally.
In recent months, lawmakers in Massachusetts have begun to consider legalizing sports betting. While neighboring states have passed similar legislation, Massachusetts’ legislative leaders have faced obstacles due to opposition in the state Senate. In July of 2021, the House of Representatives passed H 3993 by a 156-3 vote. This paved the way for a conference committee, which included three representatives from each chamber.
Interest in sports betting varies based on sport watched
According to the latest survey, interest in sports betting differs across different countries. For example, while interest in the NFL is high, it is not the most popular sport among sports bettors. This difference represents a potential opportunity for the sports betting industry. Meanwhile, NHL fans are the most interested in sports betting.
