It’s up to individual jurisdictions if they will allow betting on collegiate sports, but they should be aware the collegiate market is big and getting bigger, he said.
“College football this past year surpassed the NFL in Nevada in terms of revenue,” he said. “A lot of that is because of the number of college games offered. There are a lot more money-making opportunities there. The odds and the odds-making on the NFL is so sharp that it’s difficult for a lot of bettors to make money on that. So, they now start going to college football instead.”
To his potential customers, Roy told them to keep his company in mind if their jurisdictions legalize sports betting.
“We at Sportradar have more in-play, college coverage than anyone else by a mile,” Roy said. “We already cover one hundred percent of Division I basketball, Division I football. We cover baseball, women’s basketball as well — especially important in Connecticut here.”
