  • On Tuesday afternoon, the NBA and MGM Resorts announced a partnership that will provide the company with direct access to the league's official data.
  • During the announcement, MGM CEO Jim Murren said that mobile betting will be available at New Jersey's Borgata casino at the end of the week.

An interesting nugget came out of today’s NBA and MGM Resorts partnership announcement — Atlantic City’s Borgata casino will begin accepting mobile sports bets at the end of the week, according to MGM CEO Jim Murren.

New Jersey racetracks and casinos put legal sports betting into motion quickly after the Supreme Court ruling in May. The state already had legislation passed. Borgata accepted its first legal sports wagers on June 14.

However, all wagering has been restricted to in-person betting at the sportsbook counter. That appears to be changing very soon based on Murren’s statement regarding mobile betting. MGM Resorts International owns Borgata.

Placing bets via mobile devices is already a huge part of legal sports wagering in Nevada, and it was only a matter of time until other states offered it. Bettors using offshore sportsbooks are accustomed to placing bets only online, as well.

While no specifics have been released, mobile betting in Nevada requires bettors to physically sign up for and fund accounts at sportsbook counters. Once funded, bettors can then place wagers anywhere inside the state’s borders.

We’ll continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
