Those are baseball lines. That's normal
No the vig is much higher than what you can bet online.
The guy who posted that stuff said all the rest of the books in NJ have normal lines
I wouldn't think the fanduel place would do very much business until the make those lines fair if there are other options. A lot of dumbasses out there though.
I don’t know what I’m looking at but I want to share in the laughs too fellas
That is shameful
The braves line is accurate.
Accurate at a shitty book. The ML is listed at -115 -110. I would expect to get -115 +105 with a 10 cent line.
Baseball lines are odd like that.
DraftKings sportsbook is now live for NJ people. I had an email about it this morning. They have a separate DraftKings Sportsbook app.
Wish I could find employment in the sports betting world. Not really sure what I could do, but think it would be interesting/fun.
it appears our only hope is state rights republicans, and not the ones who only use states rights when convenient to their position, oh great!
Reports: Hatch, Schumer Preparing To Drop Federal Sports Betting Bill In Senate
Adam Candee on Dec 19, 2018 09:51 PST@adamcandee
Multiple reports Wednesday indicate Sens. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) will introduce federal sports betting legislation in the Senate.
With little time remaining in the current Congress, though, any bill dropped now would need a major push to advance. Hatch, a co-author of PASPA, is retiring at the end of this session and likely wants to introduce this bill before he departs.
The legislation follows Hatch’s vow to introduce a new bill. It also comes after Schumer proposed a framework in late summer and a House committee held an odd hearing on sports betting in early fall.
What will be in the federal sports betting bill?
Sources tell Legal Sports Report the bill will track closely with the discussion draft circulated by Hatch earlier this month in Washington. That draft:
Gave veto power on state-level legislation to the US Attorney General if laws don’t meet minimum standards.
Mandates use of official league data by sports betting operators from sports leagues (or their proxies) through 2022.
Allows for college sports betting but bans states from authorizing betting on amateur events.
Amends the Wire Act to allow some sports betting information to travel across state lines. (There could be movement on federal interpretation of the Wire Act as well.)
Creates a “national sports wagering clearinghouse” to which operators give wagering data “in real time” or close to it.
Allows interstate sports wagering compacts between states and tribes (also subject to approval).
Earmarks fund from the federal excise tax of 0.25 percent of handle for a “wagering trust fund” on sports betting matters.
Sets minimum standards for addressing problem gambling for operators and related advertising.
What are its prospects for passage?
From what we hear, the bill does not enjoy significant support despite its bipartisan sponsors. Its expansion of federal oversight does not play well with states-rights proponents in a Republican-controlled Congress. The gaming industry predictably expressed its displeasure as well.
The American Gaming Association (AGA) sent a letter to Schumer in September, stating in part:
“AGA has long been a leading advocate for eliminating the vast illegal sports betting market in the U.S., which was largely enabled by the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA). We believe this can best be achieved through law enforcement oversight and robust state regulation. AGA firmly believes that additional federal engagement is not warranted at this time.”
The timing of the bill also deserves scrutiny. Only two weeks remain in the current Congress, not including the holiday break. Even moving the bill through committee in that time would be nearly impossible, let alone getting it off the floor of the Senate.
As for next year, keep in mind that Congress will look significantly different after Jan. 3, 2019. Democrats will take over the House of Representatives and Hatch will be retired. Schumer will remain in the minority, with little power to push legislation through his chamber without Republicansupport.
DC legalized sports betting recently, but gave a monopoly on app-based betting to the DC Lotto. That is going to be a shitty product.
this is on the ballot in Colorado in November. If passed, betting through apps (operated by Colorado casinos) will be legal in May 2020
It's depressing/hilarious that Florida will likely be among the last to legalize sports gambling thanks to idiotic voters and shithead lobbyists from the Seminole Tribe/Disney.
A casino in South Beach would be the best thing since the internet was invented
Congrats to Colorado voters
Can start betting on Apps May 2020
Discussed in another thread but the Oregon Lottery recently released their betting app. So, I place bets on my phone through our state lottery.
Maybe the Dems can get it done in VA now that they’ve taken over
Dont see it ever happening
Fuck the mouse, hopefully it gets done. Glad Heinter's in on it.
If they can get past the mouse, they will then have to fight the tribals. They want all the action.
Read some stuff recently about CA and no surprise the Indian casinos are pushing it without online or mobile gambling. They want books in their casinos, but nowhere else.
Just like Florida. Florida has that against them and the Disney money against them
If they at least allowed card rooms and tracks to the list it would help. I live relatively close to Los Al race track and Hawaiian Gardens to go make wagers.
No online would suck just cause of the fact that I could still use offshore books.
Yeah that would mean no book would be interested in setting up shop or they would just charge -135 on everything.
That’s exactly right. Those books would have to make everything -130 at the bare minimum. It’s unrealistic.
People would still bet with those odds. Just look at the lottery, scratchers, and pull tabs.
Now make weed legal
Wait does Alabama not have a state lottery?
Only for season ticket purchase rights for the Tide.
I had always heard Disney would fight it hard and we would be among the last in the country to have legal sports betting.
hope it goes through
They're gonna offer the worst odds ever
-120 on both sides of a pick em, better than nothing baby!
I'm not familiar with the specifics of lines but it's gonna so much cheaper to bet with your mafia connected bookie and if things go south you even get to meet the mafia connected loanshark
im gonna need to know how the judge obtained their position before I comment further
Well that sucks. I was enjoying in-game wagering.
