With the sports betting whirlwind in full effect, I can envision betting stations that look like ATM’s in approved states and throughout airports, malls, grocery stores and sub stations on the corners like 7-11’s.
Sportsbooks outside of Nevada in casinos is the smart move. Fantasy Football purse will grow ten fold and football apps like Fire Fan are already in place to take full advantage of the in game betting services.
The NFL is not happy and quite frankly they dont want pandoras box opened any wider then it already is. Commissioner Goodell released a statement about the integrity of the game:
As it was for my predecessors, there is no greater priority for me as the Commissioner of the National Football League than protecting the integrity of our sport. Our fans, our players and our coaches deserve to know that we are doing everything possible to ensure no improper influences affect how the game is played on the field. This week’s ruling by the Supreme Court has no effect on that unwavering commitment.
We have spent considerable time planning for the potential of broadly legalized sports gambling and are prepared to address these changes in a thoughtful and comprehensive way, including substantial education and compliance trainings for our clubs, players, employees and partners. These efforts include supporting commonsense legislation that protects our players, coaches and fans and maintains public confidence in our games. We are asking Congress to enact uniform standards for states that choose to legalize sports betting that include, at a minimum, four core principles.
