WNBA agrees fantasy sports partnership with FanDuel12 May 2017

The Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA), the sister league of the National Basketball Association (NBA) in North America, has entered into a partnership with daily fantasy sports (DFS) operator FanDuel.

Under the deal, which represents FanDuel’s first agreement with a women’s professional sports league, the DFS brand will serve as the official one-day fantasy partner of the WNBA.

FanDuel will launch the ‘Official One-Day Fantasy Game of the WNBA’, which will allow fans to compete against each other for daily WNBA prizes.

The game, which will launch ahead of the new WNBA season that tips off this weekend, is available via the FanDuel website, the FanDuel mobile application and the WNBA website.

FanDuel will also launch the ‘WNBA Tip-Off Challenge’, a mini competition that runs from May 13-20 and will enable fans to enter a series of special edition, free-to-play games for the chance to win various prizes.

“We are constantly looking to innovate by finding new opportunities to engage with our passionate fans and introduce the WNBA to wider audiences,” said WNBA president Lisa Borders said.

“This partnership with FanDuel and our new one-day fantasy game will be a fresh, unique way for fans to further connect with their favourite WNBA players and teams throughout our season.”

In 2014, FanDuel launched the ‘Official One-Day Fantasy Basketball Game of the NBA’ in what was its first strategic partnership with a major professional sports league.

Nigel Eccles, chief executive of FanDuel, added: “The NBA has been a fantastic partner as we continue to build out our consumer offerings to appeal to all sports fans.

“We first launched NBA contests in 2009, debuted NBA InPlay late last year, and are now extending our basketball offerings to include WNBA, giving our users even more opportunities to play fantasy contests.

New Jersey online gambling up double-digits, no thanks to poker

new-jersey-april-online-gambling-revenueNew Jersey’s regulated online gambling market failed to maintain its record-setting pace in April but still managed to produce double-digit year-on-year gains.

Figures released Friday by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement show state-licensed online gambling operators generating revenue of $20.8m in April. The figure is 22.6% higher than the same month last year but below the record $21.7m the operators produced in March of this year.

April’s showers of revenue were almost entirely due to online casino operations, which shot up 31% year-on-year to $18.85m, although this was $1m less than March’s tally. Online poker revenue not only failed to match March’s $2.25m, but fell nearly 24% year-on-year to just under $2m.

The Golden Nugget’s casino-only online gambling operations, which include the local operations of UK outfit Betfair and Pennsylvania’s SugarHouse casino, maintained its status as the state’s top earner with just under $5.4m. This is significantly higher than April 2016’s $3.3m but well back of March 2016’s record $6.17m.

The Borgata family of sites ranked second on the revenue chart with $4.2m, up around $200k year-on-year but down $150k from March. The Borgata’s poker operations contributed $600k to the total, down from $650k in March.

The Borgata could soon take a run at the Nugget’s crown, as the casino is owned by MGM Resorts, which announced last week that it had teamed with PartyPoker parent GVC Holdings to launch an online poker and casino operation under the playMGM brand.

The Tropicana’s casino-only site generated $3.94m in April, up slightly from March’s figure and nearly $1m higher than April 2016.

Resorts Digital Gaming, which includes PokerStars’ New Jersey site, generated $3.77m, down from March’s personal best $4.2m, as poker revenue fell nearly 13% and casino take fell 10%.

That left Caesars Interactive Entertainment New Jersey (CIENJ) as cellar-dweller for the second straight month with $3.5m, although that represents an improvement of around $350k from March. CIENJ’s casino operations enjoyed healthy gains but poker operations fell nearly 17%.

Donald Trump’s impeachment odds spikes after Comey sacking

Donald Trump’s impeachment odds spikes after Comey sackingThe sudden dismissal of FBI Director James Comey has caused the betting odds of U.S. President Donald Trump facing impeachment to skyrocket.

No president has ever gotten the amount of talk and betting as the 45th leader of the free leader, who can’t go a day without finding himself at the center of some sort of controversy. This week, it’s the firing of Comey for allegedly mishandling the Clinton email investigation.

The president, however, admitted that he was thinking of “this Russia thing” when he decided Comey’s fate. The now-ex FBI director had been leading the investigation into possible collusion between Trump advisers and Russian officials prior to his dismissal.

“And, in fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said: ‘You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story, it’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should’ve won,’” Trump told NBC News.

Comey’s sacking drew immediate comparisons to former President Richard Nixon’s dismissal of Archibald Cox, who investigated the Watergate scandal, in 1973. Nixon resigned a year later, after a congressional panel voted to impeach him.

Will Comeygate lead to impeachment?

At sportsbook Bodog, the odds of Trump completing a full term as president of the United States is at -130, while his odds of being convicted by the Senate in his first terms is at +400 and him being impeached by the House in his first term is +125.

The odds of Trump resigning before his first term ends is at +250.

For his exit date, the chances of the U.S. president leaving in 2017 is at +350, followed by 2018 is at +400, while 2019 is at +450. Trump has a strong chance of staying in the office until 2020 or later, with -120 odds.

The bookmaker lists Democrats’ chances of retaking the White House in 2020 at -155, while the Republicans is at +125.
