Jalen Rose and BetMGM are teaming up to give the people what they want.

Shortly after a successful mobile launch in Michigan, BetMGM signed the former Wolverine and current ESPN star as a key celebrity ambassador for its betting and gaming products. 

"The excitement around sports and the growth of sports betting, and BetMGM in particular, this year has been special to witness. I'm beyond excited to go from a spectator to a player joining the BetMGM team, continuing to defy industry expectations."

Jalen Rose: BetMGM Brand Ambassador

Rose and BetMGM first announced their partnership in March 2021, just after BetMGM set records in his home state of Michigan with its January launch in mobile sports betting and iGaming.

Rose continues to connect with bettors and BetMGM Rewards loyalty members as a special perk for those who use the BetMGM platform.

Throughout the first year of Rose’s partnership, he has appeared in a number of marketing materials and social media videos. He’s also appeared on the BetMGM podcast Unleashed.

Rose remains very popular in Michigan, where NCAA basketball lines are an increasingly attractive online sports betting market. 

Currently, Rose works as a popular analyst for ESPN. He is a frequent guest on the network’s flagship morning show, Get Up, and co-hosts his own afternoon show, Jalen & Jacoby, with longtime collaborator David Jacoby.

  • Accumulated 13,220 points, 3,193 rebounds and 3,527 assists in his 13 seasons as a professional player. He averaged at least 18 per game or better during the peak of his career, from 2000 through 2003.
