🏈 NFL through Week 3
We checked in with several industry startups to see how things are going through the first three weeks of the new NFL season:
“The first few weeks of NFL have been nothing but an awesome roller-coaster as the first licensed and regulated sports betting exchange in the US. We’ve seen our volume spike week over week, and cannot wait for product enhancements and more marketing channels to only pour fuel on what has been a very exciting fire thus far.” -Jake Benzaquen, Prophet Exchange
“The first 3 weeks of NFL has been anything but expected - pre-season contenders and pretenders are not what we thought! This discrepancy has led to a substantial change in futures’ betting lines which will leave some bettors with really valuable futures bets (more so than what they had likely expected when they placed such bets).” -Brent Winston, BetSwap
“Key players are performing well, while defensive or offensive lines are not playing as expected.  These are driving an "underdog” result in outcomes. We are looking forward to the seasonal storylines and how our in-game and pre-game probabilities will contribute to that narrative.“ -Danijela Covic, Quarter4
“Excellent start to the NFL season. We shattered our revenue and traffic goals for September. Evidently bettors want higher-end content and analytical tools!” -Dan Fabrizio, Unabated Sports
“SoBet has seen tremendous growth over the first four weeks of football, more than double what was expected during the start of the season! We believe that this is a direct result of the level of transparency we are providing, instilling trust within our Gen Z community – who might be new to betting.“ -Cooper Lycan, SoBet
