Why It’s Important: Over the course of the NFL season, the engagement for Bleacher Report’s sports betting- and NFL-related content has increased.

B/R Betting is the most engaged and most viewed social media account for the company.

Bleacher Report saw a 46% year-over-year increase in engagement across its channels in the final weeks of the NFL season, including over 23 million fan interactions on its site and app.

DraftKings will offer over 200 prop bets for Super Bowl LV. The media deal with Bleacher Report allows DraftKings the chance to promote its brand and highlight its offerings.

The Super Bowl is expected to be one of the most bet-on events for sports betting and could break records for DraftKings. Americans wagered over $7 billion on Super Bowl LIV.

The company said the recent NCAAF Playoff National Championship game between Ohio State and Clemson was the most bet-on college football game in DraftKings history. The college football championship and Super Bowl will both be part of DraftKings' first quarter. 

DKNG Price Action: Shares of DraftKings were down 5% at $51.02 at last check Tuesday.
