Caesars Sportsbook Makes History With NFL Streaming Feature

Caesars Logo Icon 150x150In the modern wagering landscape, mobile betting and streaming go together very well. Considering the amount of bettors that use their smartphones and tablets to not just place wagers but stream sporting events, the entire process works quite smoothly. This is especially the case as more online sportsbooks embrace streaming sporting events right from the mobile wagering app, as is seen with platforms such as BetRivers Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook.

Well, we’ve just seen the latest advancement in sports streaming from a sports betting site with the rollout of Watch & Bet. Here’s what the new development from Caesars Sportsbook could mean for the future of sports betting.

Sunday Night Football Showcases Caesars Watch & Bet

Caesars Sportsbook, the popular betting platform from Caesars Entertainment, has just showcased a major new feature in primetime. Thanks to a partnership between the NFL and sports data company Genius Sports, certain mobile sportsbooks will now be able to stream NFL action right from the app.

Caesars Sportsbook was chosen as the first online betting site to launch this feature, due partially to it being one of the first sports betting partners of the National Football League.

Not only that, but according to Sports Video Group, the new Watch & Bet feature will allow bettors to not just view select pro football games, but wager on them live using advanced data analytics.

The Watch & Bet feature was introduced on the Sunday Night Football showdown between the Dallas Cowboys and Indianapolis Colts. This marked the very first time that an NFL game was streamed on an online sportsbook, and there are plenty more to look forward to.

The next game scheduled to be showcased with the Watch & Bet feature is the next Sunday Night Football game between the Miami Dolphins and Los Angeles Chargers, with other weekly games planned throughout the regular season. It will be fascinating to see how the new feature is received in the coming weeks, and what it means for next season, with the potential for more games and more sportsbooks getting in on the streaming action.

Sunday Night Football Recap

While Sunday Night Football featured the debut of the innovative Watch & Bet feature from Caesars Sportsbook, the game itself wasn’t one of the top games of the year (unless you bet on the Cowboys, that is).

Indianapolis actually kept the game fairly close for the majority of the game, with the third quarter ending with Dallas up 21-19. However, the wheels fell off in the fourth quarter as the Cowboys outscored the Colts 33-0 for a final score of 54-19, setting a team record for fourth quarter scoring along the way.

The Dallas defense shined once more, forcing five turnovers and sacking Indianapolis QB Matt Ryan three times. With Dallas covering the double-digit spread with ease, the team now enters Week 14 with an 8-4 record against the spread, one of the best numbers in the league. Caesars Online Sportsbook now lists the Dallas Cowboys at +700 to win the Super Bowl this season, with the Colts now facing the second-longest odds on the mobile sportsbook at +100000.
