Today, Minute Media announced their newest venture BetSided. This new content vertical will sit under FanSided (a Minute Media content brand acquired in early 2020) and be the brand’s first sports betting content platform which aims to make betting accessible to everyone by creating a welcoming environment meant for casual sports fans and bettors of all stages to consume content. This launch showcases Minute Media’s continued growth in the sports betting sector, adding onto their ongoing partnership with FanDuel, in which they provide entertaining and informative content for sports betting fans via TheDuel.com.
BetSided launches alongside it’s flagship video series, “Big Man Bets” which features former NFL offensive linemen, New York Jet Pro Bowler Nick Mangold and St. Louis Ram Hall of Famer Orlando Pace.
”Really excited to talk about football and betting and just have fun with Orlando discussing the game from a different perspective. It makes watching games even more exciting when you're able to wager on the outcome, and I think Big Man Bets will be all about that, bringing added entertainment and engagement amongst fans and friends,” said Nick Mangold.
In "Big Man Bets," Nick and Orlando share their views on the current happenings around the NFL, and make picks on the upcoming action with advice from an industry betting expert to help explain how Vegas views their opinions.
“No one really knows what's going to happen when you bet, but it's still exciting and that's what I'm looking forward to about this show. We're both competitors and Nick and I are going to make some friendly wagers throughout the season. I can’t wait to see how competitive things get as the season heats up,” said Orlando Pace.
Additionally, WynnBET, the sports betting app will be integrated throughout the “Big Man Bets” video series as part of their content marketing partnership with Minute Media.
