As we approach the first games of the 2021 football season, NFL sports betting advertisements are a real thing! The league has made agreements with several licensed sports books, and those lucky seven books will be allowed to run commercials during NFL games this year.
However, do not expect viewers to be over run with gambling commercials. The NFL has set a strict limit on the number of ads allowed per game, and when those ads can be run.
Networks showing NFL games will only be permitted to show one sports betting commercial per quarter. An additional ad will be allowed for the pregame show, and the final one during halftime.
With this change, American sports fans watching football games on NBC, CBS, Fox Sports, and ESPN can expect to see their first gambling ads this month!
