The New York Jets on Tuesday announced their second sports betting partnership in less than a week.

The Jets and WynnBET have entered into a multiyear agreement to make the Wynn Resorts sports betting platform an official sports betting partner of the team, according to a news release.

Just days before the regular season started last week, the Jets announced a multiyear partnership with Fubo Sportsbook to become an official sports betting partner of the club. Fubo Sportsbook is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of this year. It’s Fubo’s first sponsorship of a professional sports team.
