FanDuel, which is the exclusive sports betting partner of OutKick, announced a landmark partnership today with Charles Barkley. FanDuel was already the sports betting partner of AT&T’s Turner Sports, where Barkley has been a talent for two decades, so their deal with Barkley will have integrations on their NBA coverage and Bleacher Report.
The other good news is that there’s something in it for all of us. In their press release, FanDuel announced the following promotions that will come from the Barkley deal:
- “A risk free bet or site credit for all sportsbook customers valid for use on 12/22 and 12/23
- A free entry for all FanDuel daily fantasy customers into an NBA daily fantasy contest between 12/22-12/25.
- Special “Barkley Boosts” on odds at the FanDuel Sportsbook for NBA Tip-Off and Christmas Day NBA games that will pay out even larger winnings to customers.
- In honor of Barkley’s retired number 34, FanDuel Group will donate 340,000 meals to Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. The Feeding America network of food banks and partner food pantries and meal programs serve every community in the United States.”
Free money is always a good thing. May your opening week of the NBA, the bowl season, the NFL, and college hoops, be lucrative!
