SportsGrid President Lou Maione on Fox Business

 

SportsGrid president Lou Maione sat down with Jeff Gural on Mornings with Maria to discuss the country’s first digital 24/7 gambling network.

Segment #1: The 1st 24/7 Gambling Network

 

The network schedule offers 18 hours of live, original programming daily with coverage of the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, college sports, Tennis and Soccer. The odds, matchups, injury reports, news and more with expert analysts originating from the state-of-the-art television production facilities located in New York City adjacent to Madison Square Garden and at the Meadowlands inside the FanDuel Sportsbook.

Meadowlands Racetrack owner Jeff Gural was drawn to the multi-year partnership with SportsGrid due to the convergence of content and data noting that “People who bet on sports want information.”

The network’s 18 hours of live programming gives the fanatical sports betting fan the news, scores, odds, rumors, match-ups and insightful expert commentary. The SportsGrid strategic partnership with Sportradar enables the network to integrate their real-time delivery of player and team news, data, statistics and betting intelligence into all the programming on the schedule. SportsGrid is the multimedia destination to serve the massive sports betting audience with the unquestionable best of breed sports wagering programming and data.

Maione continued: “Content is king. And content whether it is in the financial world or the sports world we know that content is king.”

With SportsGrid’s live broadcasts from the Fanduel Sportsbook at The Meadowlands, the convergence of content and gaming is officially here and located within what many expect to become the biggest sportsbook in the United States. Fanduel Sportsbook projects to do $500M this year and in just one year expects to surpass the largest sportsbook in Las Vegas, Nevada. In fact, in May the state of New Jersey had already passed Nevada in total betting handle with nearly $320M in total dollars wagered, making it a landmark month since the legalization of sports betting in New Jersey.

SportsGrid will provide weekly “tip sheets” at the Meadowlands allowing fans to make more educated picks powered by SportsGrid’s predictive models. Maione notes that “It’s not just about news and opinion. It is also about ‘here is the stats, here is the data’ so we partnered with SportRadar … because they have the APIs and data that we need because we’re programmatically generating content.” In addition to providing content and data, SportsGrid will also host events at The Meadowlands including gameday tailgates and more.

“Here, you’re just crossing the bridge. You’re able to come here, have a great time, see great content and get the edge. Watch games, have a drink, place a bet. What else could be better?”
