It was a terrific 2023 for BetMGM.

“BetMGM saw mammoth growth in 2023 with an increase in popularity and expansion of legal sports betting,” Director of Retail Trading Matt Cosgriff said. “Nothing in the sports betting world compares to the Super Bowl, and this year we saw the Eagles fall to the Chiefs resulting in a record day for BetMGM. Additionally, everything from the NCAA men’s basketball champion UConn Huskies (who reached odds of +8000) to the Denver Nuggets winning their first title proved to be great outcomes for the sportsbook.

“2024 will show the evolution of traditional and modern sports betting. The trading team expects in-play wagering and player-prop betting to grow. Live betting continues to increase in the overall percentage of handle as more people enjoy ‘trading the games’ than just a pre-game wager.

“BetMGM experienced a record 2023 and we expect to continue that momentum into 2024. The future is exciting for our business, and we plan to break even more records in 2024.”
