Do you agree with Sports gambling? It will create a new money source.

"Legal sports betting will lead to a rush on new apps and services from tech startups and legacy media companies who will join traditional bookmakers and online betting sites, industry analysts tell me. The move will also create a whole new field of content around sports betting, including news, analysis and data analytics."

It will potentially create a new avenue of crime and unhappiness.

The devil’s in the details. Crime and unhappiness surrounding gambling exist regardless. “In general,” regulating sins makes them safer.

....another addiction that will destroy peoples lives......not that legalizing necessarily makes it happen more often......since those truly addicted will find a way......

Every time a ball is dropped, we'll wonder if the dropper had money riding on the outcome. Well, we wondered that before, but now it will be a thousand times worse because all 300 million of us will have bookies.

I don’t believe in drugs but this is inevitable and we should legalize and take the money and regulation.

It's going to be especially hard on poor people, both because they are most at risk when gambling abuse is a problem, and also because state and local governments often promise that gambling taxes will pay for social programs, but that rarely pans out.

Supposedly the States to enable it first will be the ones that supported New Jersey, but I couldn't easily find a list of those. Any state with tribal gambling is anticipated to have their legislatures authorize it within 5 years.

This country's relationship with gambling is just insane!

IT'S ILLEGAL! (except Vegas and Atlantic City and then certain riverboats and Indian reservation land and then anywhere you could find a native American, then...)

Normally I don't like gambling away perfectly good money. But since I hope this hurts Las Vegas, then I'm for it. I'm mad at Vegas because of the Raiders. Vegas sucks now.

Infatuation with the NHLs Vegas Golden Knights is gonna KILL Vegas. They started as a 500-1 to win it all. That was down to 9-2 last I heard, They are good and it's just possible that they could win it all.

Vegas will lose $MILLIONS! They are already down millions from bets cashed in already. Thought you might like to hear that....
