Re: [NFL] Week 3 Games Discussion
said by sailor:I never understood why 49 of the 50 states continue to keep sports gambling illegal. Especially since most of them are backing lotteries and casinos these days. Imagine a state run sports book in every neighborhood, where you can watch big screen tvs, order wings and beer, and place a couple of bets on the games you're watching. Put a cap on the amount one person can bet in one day and you minimize any mob activity that might try to influence the results of a game. The states would be rolling in money.
But I have news for the NFL....legalized sports betting is going to become a reality and legal in the very near future...it is only a few years away and the new states who will get the ball rolling will be NJ and NY...I know what is going on behind the scenes due to my involvement in horse racing here in NY.
