NEW YORK – Beginning on Thursday, the Professional Fighters League (PFL) will be featured with betting lines through the BetMGM sportsbook platform after the two organizations have partnered with one another.
Through this deal, BetMGM is entitled to the PFL branding as well as their data for gaming purposes, holding promotions geared toward fans, and holding VIP events for the sport that gamblers can participate in.
The PFL is hoping to gain a larger following within the world of fighting and sports betting. Partnering with a sportsbook will help to expand their audience and get more people interested in their events. They are currently the second-best MMA company worldwide. With BetMGM in their corner, the world of MMA and UFC betting will get even more attention.
“The upcoming PFL slate is phenomenal, and we look forward to offering fans exciting opportunities to get in on the action with unique PFL promotions on BetMGM,” said Matt Prevost, Chief Revenue Officer for BetMGM.
On Thursday, PFL 4 will be broadcast on ESPN+ beginning at 6 p.m. EST. Wagers for the event will be up for BetMGM users to gamble on the fights for the night. This will be the first action to happen with the new partnership which began on Wednesday.
“We’re excited to partner with BetMGM to evolve our premium betting experiences for the millions of passionate sports fans across the country ahead of PFL 4 on June 10. Our fighters are facing win-or-go-home matchups in the remaining regular-season events and expanding our sports betting offerings delivers another thrilling component to our league,” said Peter Murray, the CEO of the PFL.
BetMGM will have all of the lines posted for the featherweight and lightweight fights with their mobile sportsbooks. Winners of these matchups will get a spot in the PFL Playoffs. There are four open spots to move forward. Fighter Anthony Pettis (-235) who is a former world champion in the sport will take on Alexander Martinez (+185) who has yet to lose a bout.
BetMGM will be offering sports bettors in regulated sports wagering markets a free bet worth $10 for any wager of $25 or more placed on PFL 4.
