There’s been a lot of talk on if Taylor can make it back from China to see her boyfriend Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs next Sunday. She’s performing in Asia on Saturday.
Those living in the US can speculation all they want, but won’t be able to bet on her appearance legally in the United States…
Those types of wagers can be made offshore with sportsbooks such as BetUS, which is based in Costa Rica, and potentially in the Canadian province of Ontario. BetMGM public relations manager John Ewing said he was waiting for word from Canadian authorities there if such bets will be OK.
But in the U.S., where betting laws vary from state to state, the general rule is that wagering is limited to what happens on the field. A handful of states allow bets to be placed on the color of Gatorade dumped on the winning coach — red or pink is this year’s plus-260 favorite at FanDuel Sportsbook — but even that type of wager is not allowed in Las Vegas.
Taylor has attended many NFL games this season and has increased the league’s viewership significantly. But despite the perception that Tay Tay has been seen a lot- it’s really not that much!
On Jan 28th Taylor was shown at the Chiefs vs Ravens game 4 times for a total duration of 32 seconds.
On Jan 21st Chiefs vs Bills- she was seen on TV 5 times but for only 24 seconds.
Dec 21 when the Chiefs took on the Bangles, she was shown on tv 3 times for a total of 12 seconds…
And on December 25th when the Chiefs played the Raiders she was only seen on tv for 14 with three shots at that box.
