In their first few years of business, Tally has recorded over 20 million predictions from unique users across the Western hemisphere.

Fan Engagement x Data

The sports betting market has exploded over the last couple of years as legalization spread throughout the US.

With high acquisition costs, companies who control the data for potential betting customers will be rewarded handsomely.

Fan engagement is another growing area throughout sports as companies try to win over fans in the digital world.
