Why is the live score different from what I’m seeing on official sport league source(s)? (US)

There are inherent delays that can occur while providing real-time game updates and live feed(s); therefore, the scoring updates displayed by DraftKings during a game are strictly for the enjoyment of our customers.

DraftKings customers are advised to review additional primary data sources; such as, official league updates, live broadcast scores (when sourced from official data), and event/sport governing body websites to validate the most current scores.

DraftKings does not acknowledge or accept any liability whatsoever if it’s not possible to place a bet or the live score update is not correct. At all times it is the Authorized Account Holder's responsibility to be aware of the game and the events surrounding it such as the current score, its progression, and how much time remains before the game is completed.
