FanDuel to Become Exclusive Sports Odds Provider to Associated Press
The Associated Press and FanDuel Group today announced an agreement that makes FanDuel the exclusive provider of sports odds across AP’s global sports report.
Under the terms of the agreement, FanDuel Sportsbook odds will appear in AP’s daily sports odds fixtures, game previews, and other sports stories where odds are mentioned. AP will retain editorial control of all content.
The parties will also work to integrate FanDuel widgets across the sports pages of APNews.com, as well as distribute select FanDuel content across the AP wire.
“As sports betting becomes more commonplace, our customers are increasingly asking for this kind of information,” said Barry Bedlan, AP’s global director of text and new markets products. “It makes sense to work with one of the largest reputable sportsbooks in the United States to provide a consistent, credible reference point for AP and its customers.”
“AP is a globally recognized leader in trusted news making them the ideal source for us to disseminate our industry-leading sportsbook’s proprietary odds and content,” said Adam Kaplan, FanDuel Group’s general manager and vice president of content.
