NHL ON A ROLL, Third Sports Betting Partnership Deal In Six Months

In a statement to the press on Thursday, the National Hockey League (NHL), said that they had struck a deal with William Hill. This new deal is the third in a row in less than six months after NHL signed agreements with MGM Resorts International and FanDuel last year.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman has not been known to be an enthusiastic supporter of sports betting, however, following the supreme court’s decision that allowed states to authorize sports betting he is getting one deal after another to boost revenues from sports betting agreements.

In the announcement about the new deal with William Hills, Bettman said, “Once the Supreme Court ruled, you’ve got to get with the program. You have to evolve, you have to innovate, and you have to be relevant.”

That Bettman is right in his mind can be understood because the fact is that following the Supreme Court’s decision eight states have already legalized sports betting so far and more are preparing to join the club.

William Hill is a popular bookmaker, and it runs operations (sportsbooks) in Nevada, New Jersey, Mississippi, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.

Further, talking about the player injuries and related information, Bettman explained “Most of the injury data affects whether or not a player is going to play. Our guys probably play injured more than in any other sport, and we don’t see any reason to subject them to any further injury risk. We’re transparent about not being transparent.”
