The NBA has signed betting data partnerships with Sportradar and Genius Sports, as rights-holders in the US continue to adjust to the new gambling landscape in the country.

Sportradar and Genius have taken the non-exclusive rights to distribute official NBA betting data to licensed bookmakers across the US, starting immediately.

Both companies will work with the NBA to ensure fast, accurate official data is distributed to bookmakers.
