The NBA is going ‘all in’ in a deal with MGM
The first ever… American professional sports league to strike a deal with a casino and sports book operator. The NBA-MGM partnership is the first of its kind and comes on the heels of the Supreme Court striking down a law that prohibited sports betting anywhere but Nevada.
How much it cost… is something that we don’t know. However, what we do know, is that MGM can use official NBA data feeds in its operation and also use the league’s logo. The deal should help instill confidence in bettors regarding the integrity of their bets.
We saw it coming… because the league and commissioner Adam Silver have voiced their support for legalized sports betting in the United States. Plus, MGM already does business with the NBA in the form of sponsorships. And now, MGM Resorts will be promoted on the league’s network, website, app, and social media platforms. Play responsibly (and don’t bet against Golden State)!
