The 2020 NFL season has officially kicked off and the Las Vegas Raiders have already recorded their first win of the season. This year’s season is expected to draw in more bets than other others in history. It seems officials within the Raiders understand this fact and have just revealed a new partnership with one of the country’s top sports gambling platforms. BetMGM and the Las Vegas Raiders are now officially working together in a new multi-year deal.
Sports betting is surging across the US right now. We’re already seeing a massive increase in the number of wagers made on the NFL. Today, we’re going to talk about how this new deal will affect both the Raiders and MGM moving forward.
Let’s get into it!
It’s been fascinating to see the US sports industry slowly get back on track. For months, all major sports leagues were completely shut down. As time went on, several leagues slowly started to resume their seasons, albeit with major changes set in place.
Commissioners within the NFL looked for ways to resume their season immediately. Several different safety plans were introduced. By late July, all teams had their plans to resume approved.
The first game of the 2020 NFL season took place on September 10th. Football fans around the world began flocking to different sports betting sites to place their wagers on the week’s game outcomes. Week one is now wrapped up and we saw a number of major upsets take place.
Week two of the season is now about to kick off. Tonight, the Browns and the Bengals will face off in an exciting battle between two Ohio teams. Most sportsbooks list the Browns as the -230 favorite heading into this bout. The Bengals enter as the +190 underdog.
A number of exciting games will also take place later in the week. One that many are looking forward to is between the Las Vegas Raiders and the New Orleans Saints. The Raiders recently earned their first win over the Panthers.
News is now coming out that the Raiders have agreed to an exciting new partnership deal.
Sports betting is more popular right now than ever before. We’re seeing a huge spike in this industry now that the NFL season has officially begun. It’s becoming more and more common to see professional sports teams team up with major betting companies.
News has now broken that BetMGM and the Las Vegas Raiders have officially agreed to a new partnership. BetMGM is owned and operated by MGM Resorts International and is now one of the biggest sports betting platforms in the country. This new deal will significantly expand the company’s portfolio.
Adam Greenblatt, CEO of BetMGM, spoke about his excitement with this new deal to the media this week.
“We’re thrilled that BetMGM is the first Official Sports Betting Partner of The Las Vegas Raiders,” he said. “This new partnership complements what is already a wonderful and rewarding relationship with MGM Resorts and the Raiders and we look forward to introducing Raiders fans to the excitement of sports betting with BetMGM.”
Under this new multi-year partnership, BetMGM can now utilize assets to provide more specific information through the betting app to Raiders fans. Specific wagering options on the team will now become available. All sports fans in Nevada can now register to this betting app by visiting any MGM-operated sportsbook.
Can those located outside Nevada still bet on the NFL’s week two games?
Nevada’s football fans can now enjoy some exclusive Raiders wagering options through the BetMGM app. Fortunately, sports fans don’t need to be located in this state in order to bet on this week’s games. Bovada, one of the most popular online sportsbooks available throughout the entire country, is offering some incredible odds for each game this week.
Tonight’s game is obviously drawing a huge number of new wagers. Another one that many fans are placing their wagers on is the one between the Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s an exciting matchup and will be hugely important for both teams moving forward.
The Broncos had a disappointing first showing last week against the Tennessee Titans. They entered the game as the betting favorites, yet ended up losing 14-16. The oddsmakers don’t seem confident they can turn things around this week and they come into the game as the +265 underdogs.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have an impressive roster this season and proved they’re a team to keep an eye on with a 26-16 victory over the New York Giants last week. Most analysts feel they will get the win on Saturday. They enter this game as the -330 favorites.
Odds for this entire season are now available through Bovada. If you’re a football fan, make sure to check it out today to see all the odds being offered!
