Michigan Sports Betting Draft Rules on Official League Data

According to the state sports betting law, in-play bets require the use of official league data. However, the draft rules offer a way for operators who are unsatisfied with the mandate. By default, sports betting companies can only use approved information source for Tier 2 sports wagers.

Operators can use approved data sources if official league data is unavailable for a specific type of in-play bet, according to sportsbook pay per head sources. Also, operators can petition the board if they find the terms of the official league data provider not commercially viable.

While the board is deciding on the petition, the operators can use any approved league data source. Based on pay per head reviews, decisions of the board can take a maximum of 120 days. Some factors that the board can use to consider whether the data source is commercially reasonable or not are:

  • Data are available from more than one licensed source
  • Market information about the cost of data used to settle wagers
  • Quantity, integrity, accuracy, availability, timeliness, reliability, completeness, and quality of the official league data
  • Scope of the sports governing bodies in providing data
  • Cost and availability of similar data from other sources
  • Uncompetitive terms and conditions.
