The state of Tennessee is the 20th state in the United States to launch sports betting as of yesterday (Sunday). “We are thrilled to have FanDuel as our first sports betting marketing partner and as our exclusive daily fantasy partner,” Memphis Grizzlies President Jason Wexler talked about in the Monday press release.
If you currently have a FanDuel account, the Memphis Grizzlies — partnered with Fanduel — are rewarding fans with a $20.00 bet, no deposit, when entering “GRIZZLIES” on the app. Not only that, the Grizzlies and FanDuel are offering anyone that types in that promo code to be entered into a drawing for an autographed Memphis Grizzlies jersey.

Also, the next time we enter FedEx Forum, you’ll notice FanDuel signage throughout the Forum, along with Fox Sports Broadcast on home and away telecasts, with some giveaways throughout the season.
This isn’t only a first for the Grizzlies, but the Grizzlies are the first partnership that FanDuel has with an NBA franchise.
