Spiranac has a massive following on social media, with nearly three million followers on Instagram and almost 400,000 followers on Twitter.

It's not surprising to see PointsBet work with someone who already has a history in the sports landscape and carries a huge social media following. Spiranac formerly worked with 18 Birdies, a golf tracking app - at least on a few commercials.

As gambling becomes legal across thee United States other sports books will likely take the same approach. Hiring talent with strong social media followings already connected to the sports world can't hurt.

According to Rovell, New Jersey saw the most money ($6 billion) bet on sports during 2020. Sports betting is taking the country by storm - where legal, of course.
