Spire Institute is an Ohio sports-focused high school, with its athletic programmes attracting top recruits including basketball star LaMelo Ball. The organisation also offers general sporting development programmes and operates sporting complexes on its grounds, outside of its presence as a high school.
Under Ohio’s sports betting laws, sporting organisations or land-based gaming venues may offer betting in the state, partnering with online operators for an online product.
It has partnered with Out the Gate, a startup sports betting operator that says it uses an in-house trading solution and plans to accept “all action” with lines that “lead the market on US sports”. Out the Gate is led by Christopher Kape and Robbie Manis, formerly of data provider Don Best Sports.
