bet365, a top-tier sports betting operator, has finally responded to the demand from punters with the introduction of Opta-powered player and team stats bets. This feature will be available in several football leagues in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.
Stats Perform has implemented its acclaimed Opta data feed to broaden the scope of football coverage, with this feature designed to produce reliable statistics for betting purposes. This has expanded to cover 19 additional elite competitions, providing an extra 3,000 matches per year.
Legal sports betting sites can now provide Opta-supported player and team stats markets with more than double the previous coverage, resulting in 7,000+ matches per year. Stats Platform says this helps providers of sports betting increase their profit potential while exciting bettors with every single shot, pass, and tackle in football betting.
This announcement comes when bet365 enjoys increased popularity for its sportsbook product worldwide. In June, the company launched its sportsbook in Iowa, United States, after signing a multi-year deal with Casino Queen Marquette. The operator is also getting ready to launch its sportsbook in Kentucky, taking the number of its legal states in the US to six.
The Chief Betting Officer at Stats Perform, Andrew Ashenden, said:
“Collecting and supplying Opta data for an additional 3,000 new matches to the standard required for frictionless, trusted player stats betting experiences is the culmination of months of work from our expert teams.
“This effort reinforces our commitment to helping operators innovate and create compelling, personalized products that their customers love. We are delighted that this ambition has been recognized by bet365, who have added these new competitions to their offering at the earliest opportunity.”
