Hey Sports Tech Fans,
It is officially autumn in my eyes when the NFL season returns.
The NFL made its return last night with Tom Brady’s Buccaneers just edging out the Dallas Cowboys.
Normal Sunday game day service resumes on Sunday.
A new season always bring fresh hope for every fan base in the league, a chance the write themselves into history.
As a Vikings fan I start every season with fresh optimism and this year is no different.
Best of luck to all the players of fantasy leagues as I am sure it has been a busy week organising drafts, paying dues and picking your roster for opening weekend.
I will be paying close attention to the betting numbers for opening weekend as its clear in the US that Football is the big winner when it comes to sports betting.
