By Callum Williams for Insider Sport — Sports wagering monitoring service US Integrity has announced that it will continue its partnership with Major League Baseball (MLB) following what both entities labelled as a “successful first season”.
The extension will run throughout the 2023 MLB season with US Integrity facilitating its services for all MLB events, such as regular season and playoff games, all-star weekend and the World Series Finals.
“Our partnership with US Integrity is an important component of our extensive efforts to protect the integrity of Major League Baseball events,” said Quest Meeks, Vice President and Deputy General Counsel at Major League Baseball.
“We look forward to continuing to work with US Integrity to develop technology-driven integrity solutions appropriate for today’s rapidly evolving sports betting landscape.”
US Integrity will continue to provide a variety of monitoring services to MLB through its proprietary dashboard, analysing dozens of data sets to identify irregular wagering activities and officiating patterns across all baseball-related betting markets.
The monitoring service states it’s mission is to “grow the legal, regulated sports betting market” by providing solutions that ensures sports betting integrity is intact in every sport and league it is a partner with.
“US Integrity is proud to partner with MLB as wagering on their events continues to grow across the regulated sports betting market,” added Matthew Holt, CEO and Co-Founder of US Integrity.
“We are looking forward to working with the exceptional team at MLB. All our partners are committed to the highest integrity standards, and they are no exception. These types of partnerships help ensure sports betting integrity and strengthen the unique and proprietary anomaly detection tools we have developed at US Integrity.”
Last January, US Integrity also inked a partnership deal with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) with the former becoming the MMA promotions’ official integrity service to maintain UFC betting and maintaining high standards of integrity.
