Previously in an interview with veteran bettor Wes Reynolds, we examined live betting (aka in-game or in-play wagering) from the player’s perspective. In this article, we pull back the curtain on live betting from the operator side — in a conversation with Simon Noy, the head of live betting for Kambi Group, which has partnered with DraftKings as the latter’s sports betting technology/product supplier.
In this exchange with Noy, conducted via e-mail, we focus on NFL betting and football betting. In Europe, where Kambi is based, the popularity of in-game wagering is already enormous and will only continue to grow in the U.S. What can bettors expect not only at the DraftKings Sportsbook — which launched for New Jersey sports bettors on Aug. 6 — but at most sportsbooks as in-game offerings continue to expand?
Put simply, the availability of betting options will only be limited by imagination, bettor appetite, and the ability of oddsmakers/suppliers to hang sensible numbers. (Note: This interview has been lightly edited for brevity and clarity.)
