Legal sports betting news, NFL odds, reporting and sports betting stories.
Sports betting has existed in the U.S. since country’s founding and despite some black eyes caused by the Black Sox Scandal and more recent incidents, sports betting and sports themselves have enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship. Hence the NCAA and major professional sports leagues’ acknowledgement this year that sports betting is indeed good for the engagement and for the games themselves, which SportsHandle.com has covered in great detail. On the horizon for sports wagering enthusiasts is a new era for online sports betting, a surge in in-play wagering options and a nationwide expansion of legal sports betting, the status of which you can see here state-by-state. Las Vegas, Nevada is the sports betting mecca and will remain so in the event that legal sports betting becomes a reality. Sure, you can currently bet on sports offshore or with a local bookie, but not legally (outside Nevada) with a state-licensed operator. At SportsHandle.com we deliver betting stories (check out this series with former NFL players), sports betting news, industry coverage and trends, interviews, podcasts and more.
