As the role of sports betting in the lives of US sports fans intensifies, sports wagering monitoring firm U.S. Integrity (USI) has welcomed a new partnership with the Georgia Tech Athletic Association to protect the integrity of their athletic department.
The Georgia Tech Athletics Association is in charge of maintaining the intercollegiate athletic programme at the Georgia Institute of Technology. By teaming up with USI, it will receive access to integrity monitoring services for conducting analysis and identifying irregular contest-level, officiating and wagering patterns.
USI CEO and co-founder Matthew Holt commented: “Maintaining integrity at the collegiate level is paramount, and here at U.S. Integrity we’re proud to partner with Georgia Tech to provide our services
“We’re looking forward to working with the team at Georgia Tech and developing a robust relationship for years to come while achieving a common goal. Georgia Tech has expressed to make this partnership a priority and we’re committed to delivering the highest integrity standards.”
This is the latest in USI’s efforts to protect the integrity of sports betting in the US, having also partnered with the University of Illinois Division of Intercollegiate Athletics (DIA) earlier this year.
Both organisations combined with a similar goal at hand – to monitor and extract data in order to localise and prevent suspicious wagering behaviour, simultaneously identifying and removing players who have been banned from betting.
At that time, Holt commented: “At the collegiate level, integrity monitoring and education is of utmost importance, and we’re committed to delivering the highest integrity standards.”
