FanDuel set to operate sportsbook at Meadowlands starting Saturday

07.11.2018     10:13 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Things are moving swiftly with regards to legalized sports betting in the United States. Paddy Power Betfair just announced a partnership with FanDuel. They'll kick things off on Saturday with the opening of the FanDuel Sportsbook at Meadowlands Racetrack. A full betting menu is expected to be offered. The one question that remains is how will U.S.-based sportsbooks "look" in comparison to Las Vegas and more importantly offshore? William Hill, which has built a reputation of being non-sharp friendly, is already stationed on the East Coast. We mentioned last month that they were dealing 20 cent MLB lines; a practice that is unfortunately becoming all too common. In theory, having different corporations and thus different sportsbooks is a good thing. It creates competition and allows even novice bettors a chance to "shop around" with different lines at different shops. Football season will help paint a clearer picture, particularly with how each sportsbooks handles limits and sharper players. In the end, legalized sports betting is a good thing but we remain pessimistic the product will be as "bettor friendly" as offshore mainstays like CRIS, Pinnacle, Greek, and 5Dimes.

“This is a pivotal time for the sports world in general, and we are poised to build upon our individual successes and join forces to build the best fan experience in the sports industry.”

There will be 10 towers or windows with live tellers for sports betting, plus spots for parimutuel horse racing,” Settlemoir said of the physical setup of the facility, which is temporary for now and will expand by the end of August. “And two self-service terminals in there for parimutuel as well,” he added.
