NFL star Elbert “Ickey” Woods is placing the first bet
Betfred is an official sports betting partner of the Cincinnati Bengals. Therefore, the betting company called the NFL star, Elbert Woods, to be a special guest and open the Thursday celebration.
Woods will place the first bet at the sportsbook at 3:00 p.m. He will then be hosting an open meet and greet session at the Nevada sportsbook.
