Buffalo Wild Wings Explores Offering Sports Betting

The popular sports bar chain Buffalo Wild Wings said late Wednesday it is exploring opportunities in the world of sports betting.  And why not?  Folks place their bets with any number of internationally-licensed online sports books when patronizing Buffalo Wild Wings.

"As the largest sports bar in America, we believe Buffalo Wild Wings is uniquely positioned to leverage sports gaming to enhance the restaurant experience for our guests," a Buffalo Wild Wings spokesperson said in a statement to ESPN. "We are actively exploring opportunities, including potential partners, as we evaluate the next steps for our brand."

Back in May, the US Supreme Court abolished sports wagering prohibition at the state level, thus opening the floodgates for the activity.  States only need to amend their current laws, much of which still stipulate that sports betting is illegal.

Experts believe that half the U.S. states will ultimately allow sports wagering over the next five years.  Some, like New Jersey, Delaware, Mississippi and West Virginia, have already approved sports books to operate in designated establishments such as casinos and horse tracks. New Jersey began offering online gambling on sporting events this week.

For the 46-year-old chain that was recently acquired by Arby's for just shy of $3 billion, partnering with a licensed gaming operator would likely be necessary. 

Buffalo Wild Wings would not elaborate further on their plans.
