Montana Sports Betting Gains Momentum From Start of NFL Season

Montana Casinos
Montana sports betting arrived at the wrong time. Sports Bet Montana launched on March 9th but barely six days later, bars and casinos in Montana were ordered closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The shutdown effectively put legal sports betting in Montana at a standstill.

But since sports has returned, the figures have slowly improved and as of September 16th, Sports Bet Montana has taken a total of $5M in bets this year, not bad considering the three months where there was literally no sports betting action in the state.

Montana Sports Betting Took Off With the NFL

When sports resumed in May, there were few events to bet on. Events like Korean baseball and the UFC were the first to come back and both didn’t appeal to Montanans and they did very little to perk up real money sports betting in Montana.

The return of Major League Baseball in July started a good streak for Montana sports betting. But after the NFL’s 2020 season opened earlier this month, legal sports betting in Montana took off.

A total of $189,000 was wagered on the NFL in Montana during opening week. For the week of September 7-13, 52% of the total sports wagers in Big Sky County was made on the NFL. Last Monday, a total of $36,629 was wagered in the game between the Denver Broncos vs Tennessee Titans.

Looking at $500K in Total Bets Per Week

Lottery officials predict that if the current momentum of Montana sports betting continues, the state can generate a weekly total bet amount of $500K. Officials are looking at expanding their retail base and the number of places where people can place bets in order to achieve this lofty target. But with the NFL season going full steam ahead, the target is very achievable.

The sportsbook for Sports Bet Montana is managed by Intralot which is a Greek integrated gambling, transaction processing system, and sports betting company. Intralot receives a percentage of the total amounts bet via Sports Bet Montana.

All of the money made by Sports Bet Montana came from wagers placed within the state. The state takes 12% of the total betting handle and gives 6% of that back to the businesses where the wagers were made.The other 6% goes to the State of Montana STEM scholarships. According to Montana Lottery, a total fo $364,000 has been returned to businesses offering legal sports betting in Montana. Similarly, the same amount has gone to scholarships.

Betting-related deals in the NFL

The Eagles are the second professional sports team to sign a sponsorship deal with FOX Bet. Last year, the Philadelphia 76ers also entered into a multi-year sponsorship contract with FOX Bet.FOX Bet is a mobile casino that was formed from the partnership between The Stars Group and Fox Sports.

Since the NFL cleared its clubs to sign betting-related deals last spring, some NFL teams have been busy making deals. The Denver Broncos have signed pacts with BetMGM, Betfred, and FanDuel. The Detroit Lions also have a deal with BetMGM. Likewise, the NFL has inked betting partnership contracts with BetCris, 888Holdings, and SkyBet.

Here’s When the 2020 College Football Season Will Begin!

Most of the country’s professional sports leagues are now up and running. College sports, however, have been much slower to resume their seasons. New reports indicate that’s about to change, though. The 2020 college football season is now scheduled to begin on October 23rd.

It’s extremely exciting news for football fans around the US. Of course, things will be far from normal this season. Now is the perfect time to talk about what to expect when the NCAA football season finally kicks off next month.

Let’s get into it!

The NFL is Now Up and Running

2020 has been an extremely difficult year for major US sports leagues. Back in March, league commissioners ordered all major sports to cease their operations. These regulations remained in place for months while officials within the leagues came up with plans to safely hold their seasons.

In May, the UFC made history by becoming the first major US sports company to begin hosting live events. This company proved that these events could be held with intense health protocols set in place. Nearly all major US sports leagues are now operating today.

On September 10th, the 2020 NFL season officially began. There are some major differences from seasons in the past. Many of the sport’s top players have withdrawn and all games are being held with significantly less fans in attendance.

Week one of the season has already wrapped up. With all things considered, most feel it was a major success. A huge number of fans are now brushing up on their NFL betting strategies before making wagers on the different game outcomes for week two.

The regular season is now in the full swing of things. This season’s playoffs are officially scheduled to begin on January 9th. Super Bowl LV will take place on February 7th, 2021.

Football fans are obviously happy to see the sport on live tv again. Soon, college football will resume, as well!

Big Ten Offers an Update on the 2020 College Football Season

We’ve seen several attempts to resume different college sports seasons this year. This has proven to be extremely difficult. Just a few weeks ago, the Big Ten Conference formally announced it was postponing all fall sports.

It didn’t take long for the group to find a new date to kick things off for football. News has just surfaced that the 2020 college football season will officially begin on October 23rd. Kevin Warren, a commissioner for the Big Ten, is confident that things will be safe for the athletes when October rolls around.

“Our focus with the Task Force over the last six weeks was to ensure the health and safety of our student-athletes,” Warren said. “Our goal has always been to return to competition so all student-athletes can realize their dream of competing in the sports they love. We are incredibly grateful for the collaborative work that our Return to Competition Task Force have accomplished to ensure the health, safety and wellness of student-athletes, coaches and administrators.”

There have been several factors that played into this decision. Many credit the new rapid-response testing options that are now available. This should help teams to quickly identify and quarantine any sick players. The first tests will begin on September 30th.

All teams competing this season will have an eight-game schedule. The details on this schedule have not yet been released. According to the Big Ten, more announcements on other fall and winter sports seasons will be made over the next few weeks.

With the 2020 college football season now scheduled, many are starting to place their bets on how things will unfold.

College Football Betting Odds Are Now Being Offered Online!

There are a lot of questions heading into this season. How will teams perform without massive crowds in attendance? How many players will be forced to withdraw?

Some feel that this season could offer some fantastic opportunities for bettors. It’s no surprise that so many fans have already started placing their wagers on the season winner. Bovada, one of the best online gambling sites in the US, is now offering a wide range of different odds on the 2020 college football season.

The most popular betting option is on which team wins the championship. As of now, Clemson is the massive favorite with odds of -450. Notre Dame is second with current odds of +500 to get the victory this season.

Some are predicting that an underdog takes advantage of the situation and pulls off the upset this season. Many point towards Virginia Tech (+2000) as a possible team to do so. The team struggled last year but most predict they’ll perform significantly better in 2020.

There’s no doubt that this season will be one to remember. As we’ve already mentioned, it will begin on October 23rd. We’ll be sure to offer any more updates on this situation once they come out.

Are you looking forward to the 2020 college football season? Which team do you think wins the championship? Let us know in the comments section below!

New Jersey Registers All-Time High of $667M in Bets Taken for August 2020

New Jersey
New Jersey had its best betting month ever in August 2020. According to the latest revenue data released by the state’s Division of Gaming Enforcement on Monday, New Jersey’s sportsbooks took a total $667.9M in bets for the month of August 2020. That’s double the amount they received in August 2019 and it is also an all-time record for monthly bets taken by any state with a regulated betting market.

Said FanDuel spokesman Kevin Hennessy via ESPN:

“It was good to have sports back in August. The NBA and NHL bubbles and MLB’s strong return gave sports betting in New Jersey the needed boost to a record month.”

All-Time High

The previous all-time high for a state with legal sportsbetting  was $614.1 which was achieved by Nevada in November 2019., it was highest betting revenue since sportsbetting was was introduced in the Silver State in the 1950s. But New Jersey’s August 2020 figures topped that, even without the NFL, America’s favorite sport to bet on.

According to the report, the “other sports” category picked up the bulk of the August revenue with a total of $204.9M. Other sports are classified as sports other than baseball, football, basketball, and parlays. The NBA took in an estimated $166M bets while MLB accounted for around $150M in wagers. Parlay bettors were glad to see major sports return and the total handle for these events was $144.9M.

Record May Not Last Long

Despite the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic health restrictions limited New Jersey’s casinos to 25% capacity, betting action picked up. According to the report, 90% of the total amount wagered was placed in online platforms in the Garden State. New Jersey sportsbooks won a net amount of $39.5M on sporting events that took place in August 2020.

With the NFL and college football seasons beginning last week and the NBA, MLB, and NHL continuing with their seasons this month, New Jersey’s numbers are even expected to get better and August’s record figures may not last long. The Garden State’s sportsbooks have amassed $2.5B from January to August 2020, despite the pandemic. Last year, New Jersey’s sportsbooks saw a total of $2.53B placed bets over the same season.

The Garden State isn’t the only state to report all-time high numbers during the month of August. Indiana’s betting handle jumped by $100M from July to a total of $169M last month. Likewise, Iowa’s handle rose 120.1% to $53M. On the other hand, West Virginia reported that its sportsbetting handle tripled last month.

Virgnia’s “Sports Bettor Bill of Rights” Draws Flak From Major Operators

Virginia Sign

The public comment period on the proposed rules and regulations of sports betting in Virginia ended last Wednesday and some of the initial policies have received opposition from major gambling operators.

During the review process, major platforms like DraftKings and FanDuel have taken issue with some of the consumer protection rules that officials are proposing. One particular regulation that has received negative feedback is the one that requires the betting platforms to provide players with information that can help them make “informed decisions about their gambling”. These information include how the odds were calculated, odds of winning a bet, and the handle and payout amounts.

Other Issues That Drew Negative Reactions

According to the gambling operators, no other sports betting state in the United States has imposed a similar requirement. FanDuel in particular, noted that it recently offered 24 different bets on an NBA playoff game and that had nearly 300 potential outcomes and even more possible parlay wagers. Presenting the required information under Virginia’s proposed Sports Bettors Bill of Rights in real time will cause logistical problems on both processing power and screen space.

Other issues that drew negative reactions include the process of allowing players voluntarily ban themselves from sports betting for two years, five years, or for life if they feel they are losing too much money or if they feel they are getting addicted to gambling. The regulations also requires gambling operators to submit all marketing and advertising materials to the Lottery for pre-approval. The advertising rules also prohibit them from targeting minors and ads that violate “good taste” are disallowed.

Additionally, there is a proposed rule that bans betting on the Olympics, something which was not included in the legislation of the General Assembly. For this issue, the operators argued that excluding some sports evets would defeat the purpose of the legislation. Several companies also requested for a more lenient advertising policy where they won’t need a formal sign-off in advance.

Laying The Foundation of Virginia Sports Betting

The public review is being conducted by the Lottery to lay the foundation of the sports betting rules in Virginia. The outcome of the review will determine how quickly or not sports betting will launch in the state and what the bettors expect to see in the betting apps when they are officially launched. If all goes well, sports betting is expected to start next year in Virginia.

This year, the General Assembly passed a legislation authorizing the Virginia Lottery to hand out between four to 12 sports betting licenses in the state. Sports betting in Virginia will start online, largely via sports betting apps. However, it could eventually expand to the brick and mortar casinos being planned in different cities and the Colonial Downs operated Rosie’s gambling places.

The Virginia Lottery Board is expected to meet on Tuesday to vote on the new rules on sports betting. Once the rules and regulations are in place, the Lottery will begin accepting applications for sports betting licenses next month. Sports betting is expected to bring in an annual $55M in state tax revenues.

William Hill
William Hill US and CBS Sports announced on Wednesday that they are rolling out new product offerings to kick off their partnership ahead of the fantasy football season in the US.
The fantasy football season follows the schedule of the current NFL Season which begins on Friday, September 10, 2020 and ends on January 3, 2021.

It also gives sports bettors access to educational tools such as prop and bet calculators.

Under the agreement, CBS Sports will utilize William Hill’s odds, experts, and more than 140 sportsbooks to solidify its digital presence.

5Dimes Temporarily Ceases U.S. Offshore Operations

Icon Displaying Variety of Sports, Hand Holding Cash
Costa Rica-based online sportsbook 5Dimes has issued a notice to its customers informing them that it will be temporarily ceasing its U.S. operations effective September 25, 2020.

The move is seen by industry experts as part of a bigger plan by 5Dimes to legitimize its operations in the United States. 5Dimes has operated in the United States an an offshore sportsbook. But with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act in 2018, states have been allowed to pass their own legislation that will legalize sports betting. Since then, more than 20 states have legalized sports betting in their jurisdiction and that number is expected to increase further. With the legal sports betting market growing in the United States, 5Dimes is aiming to be among the legal gambling operators in the country.

In a social media message, the sportsbook said:

“5Dimes is excited to announce that it is embarking on a new business venture. With the evolving legal landscape in the United States, we want to take advantage of the opportunity to offer an improved online sports betting experience to our many US customers. In order to do this, we need to suspend temporarily our service of the US market so that we can launch our new operations with a fresh start.”

Temporary Cessation

To facilitate the temporary cessation, 5Dimes will stop accepting best from U.S. markets at 12am ET of September 21, 2020. Customers have been informed to withdraw their balances until 12 am ET of September 25, 2020.

All customer funds remaining on 12 am ET of September 30th will be transferred to a third-party claims administrator who will attempt to deliver the funds to the account holder. All funds undelivered by 12 am ET of September 30, 2021 or one year from now,  will be deemed abandoned by the owner.

State By State Entry

After its temporary closure, sources say that 5Dimes will attempt to re-enter the U.S market state by state, seeking the approval of state regulators. The United States is one of the biggest sports betting markets in the world. But American punters have always been wary of offshore betting sites. 5Dimes hopes that becoming legal in the U.S. will help it earn a bigger share of the pie.

Also, Mature U.S. markets like Nevada and New Jersey are strict in their laws against offshore gambling operators in the last five years. Offshore betting site Bovada and BetOnline have stopped accepting New Jersey customers since last year because of issues with state regulators. Once 5Dimes gets its U.S.licenses, they will no longer have to worry about suffering the same fate.

Detroit Lions Name BetMGM as Their Official Sports Betting Partner

Detroit State Flag With the MGM Grand Detroit

The Detroit Lions announced on Thursday that they have entered into a sports betting partnership with MGM Resorts International and GVC Holdings. The join venture will make BetMGM as the Lions’ first and official sports betting partner and it comes just in time for the start of the 2020 NFL season later this month.

The agreement will make BetMGM as the official sponsor of Lions Bingo and Lions Perks. It also includes other “fan-focused assets” such as team broadcast programming, digital marketing assets, and in-stadium promotions and signages.

Said Detroit Lions President Rod Wood in a statement:

“The Detroit Lions historic relationship with BetMGM has been years in the making and we’re proud to announce details of our official partnership. We’re continuously seeking new ways to entertain and involve our fans which is especially important during such unusual times; this partnership with BetMGM will provide additional and exciting opportunities to engage our fans.”

Lions Bingo and Lions Perks

Lions Bingo is a free to play game which was introduced in 2019. The game, which is available via the team’s mobile app, is a bingo game where fans can guess what plays happen next or which stats the team can achieve during games for a chance to win non-cash prizes. With BetMGM as partner, Lions Bingo players now have a chance to take home cash prizes or all-expense paid trips to MGM Resorts properties across the country.

Lions Perks was introduced during the 2018 NFL season and it is the team’s rewards system for fans at their home games. Available also via the Detroit Lions’ app, Lions Perks cards can be scanned during in-stadium purchases to earn points and join sweepstakes. Points can either be redeemed for rewards or donated to the Lions’ charities.

Long Standing Partnership

While sports betting was passed into a Michigan law only in late 2019. BetMGM and the Detroit Lions have a long standing partnership that isn’t betting related. MGM Resorts’ MGM Grand is one of the three commercial casinos in Detroit and it has been the sponsor of the MGM Grand Detroit Tunnel Club at Ford Field, the home of the Lions.

BetMGM started operating a sports betting lounge at the MGM Grand Detroit on March 12. Three months later, BetMGM also entered into a similar sports betting pact with the Denver Broncos. Michigan and Colorado both entered the sports betting arena earlier this year.

Last month, the two Iowa casinos where they launched their product contributed a combined 15.2% of the sports betting revenue in The Hawkeye State.

Sports Betting Picking Up in Colorado

Sports betting became legal in Colorado at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in May 2020 when almost all of sports was shut down. Despite U.S. professional sports leagues like the NBA, MLS, and MLB suspended, it was able to generate a total of $946,741.34 revenue during its maiden month.

With games returning in recent months, Colorado’s sports betting activity has picked up quickly. Revenue grew by 35.8% from the first month or $3.M during June. In the month of July, the total sports betting revenue in The Centennial State totaled $5.2M. With the NFL set to start its 2020 season this month, the numbers are expected to increase further.

Fans Can Already Bet on Diaz vs. Masvidal 2 Online!

The UFC is in the business of putting on fights that the fans want to see. With that in mind, the world’s biggest MMA promotion has just revealed that it’s interested in booking the rematch between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal. Fans in the US can now bet on Diaz vs. Masvidal 2 online.UFC logo

It didn’t take long for oddsmakers to set lines for this fight. Many questions surround how each man will approach the rematch. Today, we’re going to take a look at where both Diaz and Masvidal stand in the eyes of the oddsmakers.

Let’s get into it!

The UFC’s Welterweight Division is At its All-Time Best Right Now

Each weight class in the UFC has a storied history. Many feel that the welterweight division has been the most competitive over the years. Since the reigns of Matt Hughes and George St. Pierre, there has been a special allure to being the champion at 170 pounds.

The belt has changed hands several times over the years. In March of 2019, Kamaru Usman captured the belt with a dominant decision win over Tyron Woodley in Las Vegas, Nevada. Since that time, he’s defended the belt twice.

Each man in the top-10 at welterweight has the skills to become champion. It’s really anyone’s guess who will sit on top by this time next year. There’s no denying the champion’s skillset, yet anyone can be beaten on any given day.

One man that some felt would give Kamaru trouble was Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal. The Miami native made history by accepting a title shot on just 6-days notice this past July. The champion proved to be too much and defeated Jorge via unanimous decision.

It was a tough defeat for the UFC’s “BMF.” Fortunately, his stock didn’t drop considerably after the loss. Most agree he’s still one of the biggest stars in the sport and has several big fight options ahead of him.

The UFC appears to already have Masvidal’s next opponent lined up.

You Can Now Bet on Diaz vs. Masvidal 2 Online

In November of last year, the UFC put together a blockbuster fight between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz. The two men fought for what was called the “BMF” title in front of thousands at Madison Square Garden. In the end, Jorge was declared the winner via TKO from cuts.

It was an anticlimactic way for the fight to conclude. Fans of Diaz claim he was just beginning to gain momentum as the fight was stopped. Many felt that an immediate rematch was the best course of action.

The UFC had other plans and booked Jorge into a title fight. Diaz has been sitting on the sidelines ever since. This week, news broke that the UFC was finally interesting in putting on the rematch between these two men.

It didn’t take long for the oddsmakers to take notice. BetOnline.ag, one of the best online sportsbooks in the US, is now offering odds on this bout. Fans around the country now have the option to bet on Diaz vs. Masvidal 2 before it’s been formally announced!

At the moment, Masvidal is listed as the -325 favorite. He was winning the first fight fairly easily and dropped Diaz with punches and kicks on several occasions. Diaz is listed as the +275 underdog. He’ll need to make some major adjustments in order to get the win.

It’s still unclear when and where this fight will take place. Rumors are pointing towards the card on December 12th. It would make sense, as another high-profile welterweight clash is scheduled to take place on that event.

Odds on Usman vs. Burns Are Now Available Online, As Well

The UFC has been making a number of announcements lately. One of the biggest was that Kamaru Usman is defending his belt on December 12th against number-one contender, Gilbert Burns. It’s an exciting matchup between two elite mixed martial artists.

BetOnline is now offering odds on this bout as well. Many are surprised to see where each of these fighters stand in the eyes of the oddsmakers.

For now, Kamaru Usman is listed as the -240 favorite. He’s gone undefeated in the UFC and has never really found himself in any trouble inside the cage. With powerful wrestling and a much-improved kickboxing game, Usman is an incredibly difficult test for any man.

Gilbert Burns is no pushover, though. Since moving to the welterweight division in August of 2019, he’s gone 4-0. Most recently, he dominated Tyron Woodley over five rounds to earn this crack at the belt. He enters this one as the +205 underdog.

It’s a fun time to be an MMA fan. You can now bet on Diaz vs. Masvidal 2 online and place wagers on the upcoming welterweight title fight in December! Both of these fights should be extremely exciting.
