NBA renews contracts with two betting data operators

The NBA on Thursday renewed its partnerships with both Sportradar and Genius Sports Group to distribute betting data to authorized sports betting operations in the United States.

Real time betting data for both the NBA and WNBA will be distributed by both companies to the growing number of more than 20 licensed betting operators and platform providers.

Sportradar works with several leagues around the world, including the NHL, NASCAR, MLS, Sire A in Italy, the German Football Association -- the governing body of soccer in Germany -- as well as the International Tennis Federation. It analyzes potential fraud and match fixing for the German Football Association.

Genius Sports Group supplies data to licenses sportsbooks for the NCAA, PGA Tour, NASCAR, as well as soccer leagues around the world like the Premier League in England and the Scottish Professional Football League, which oversees all levels of professional soccer in Scotland. It tracks potential integrity and corruption issues for the PGA Tour.
