Micro-betting odds provider Simplebet has partnered with Hard Rock Bet to provide micro-betting golf markets for the LIV Golf Chicago event, set to begin on Friday, September 22. This is the first event where Simplebet is offering LIV Golf markets, with the initial rollout exclusively on Hard Rock Bet.
Hard Rock Bet’s platform is currently available through the App Store, the Google PlayStore, online at HardRock.bet, and at retail sportsbooks. The brand also offers Simplebet’s markets for NFL, college football, MLB, NBA, and college basketball through its Play-by-Play betting.
Powered by Simplebet, sports bettors will have the ability to wager on new in-event markets for key golfers on the LIV Golf roster. LIV Golf says the partnership paves the way for "never-before-seen markets" on its events, such as betting on a specific score a player will have on a hole (Birdie or better, Par, Bogey or worse), whether a player will hit the fairway off the tee on Par 4s and Par 5s, as well as whether a player will hit the green on a par 3.
We’re thrilled to announce that our partnership with @livgolf_league will be launching at LIV Golf Chicago through @HardRockBet!— Simplebet (@SimpleBet) September 19, 2023
