Cleveland Cavaliers Partnering With Fubo Gaming

cleveland cavaliersSportsbooks pairing up with pro sports teams is nothing new. With the increasingly growing culture of sports betting, thanks to the spreading legalization across the U.S., teams are seeing major opportunities in partnering with leading sportsbooks. For example, FanDuel, one of the top sportsbooks in the country, recently paired with the Phoenix Suns on a multi-year partnership, which will include a full FanDuel Sportsbook betting in the team’s FootPrint Center. DraftKings, another major player in sports betting, has been very active in NBA partnerships, making deals with the Indiana Pacers, Boston Celtics, and Philadelphia 76ers. Well, another pro basketball team is getting ready for a sportsbook partnership for a platform that hasn’t even launched yet. Let’s take a look at the new betting partner of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Cleveland Cavaliers Partnering With Fubo Gaming

Fubo tv sports bettingThe Fubo Gaming sportsbook hasn’t officially launched yet, but that’s not stopping it from getting to work on marketing. The platform has partnered with the Cleveland Cavaliers on a multi-year deal. The idea behind the partnership is to get more exposure before the launch of both Fubo Gaming and legal sports betting in Ohio. Financial details on the partnership are currently unknown.

Advertising will be a major part of the partnership, as more Fubo Gaming ads will begin appearing on everything from television and radio to the official Cleveland Cavaliers app. Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse, the home stadium of the Cavs, will also see plenty of Fubo Gaming advertisements. While there’s no official date for the launch of Fubo Gaming, you should expect it to be available by the end of 2021. It’s going to have some tough competition with some of the aforementioned books like DraftKings and FanDuel, as well as Caesars Sportsbook, BetMGM, and WynnBET.

The State of Sports Betting in Ohio

Is sports betting currently legal in Ohio? Unfortunately, no. However, residents of the state have to be excited for the future. Both sides of the State Congress are fully in favor of legalized sports betting, and a supported sports betting bill is seemingly destined to be passed. However, despite coming up in numerous meetings, the bill has not been officially pushed through. Apparently, the bill still needs some tweaks before it goes through, and it’s seen major delays thanks to a busy legislative season. Future sports bettors in the Buckeye State should be optimistic for the future of sports betting.

State of the Cleveland Cavaliers

That 2015-2016 championship season seems so long ago for the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs finished last season with a 22-50 record, 13th in the Eastern Conference. However, they’re trying to build something specialfor the future in Cleveland. With the No. 3 pick in the NBA Draft, the team picked up Evan Mobley from USC. Additionally, small forward Issac Okoro will look to build on his successful rookie season in which he averaged 9.6 points per game.

Additionally, the Cavaliers have a promising backcourt with Collin Sexton and Darius Garland. If veteran Kevin Love can stay healthy, he’ll use his experience to benefit a team full of young talent.
