Ah, random polls that provide the public with random opinions on gambling.


Of the 687 respondents asked, 46 percent of them said it would be more likely for players, referees and officials to wager on contests, while 42 percent said it would not. The poll did not address other forms of gambling, such as poker or table games.

They were also queried about whether moving to Las Vegas would taint the league’s reputation and 21 percent said it would harm the NFL and 19 percent said it would harm the NHL.

Dustin Johnson's injury sparks betting controversy

04.07.2017     08:44 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Interesting situation went down at The Masters yesterday. Dustin Johnson screw up his back but tried to give it a go only to walk off the tee box having not attempted a stroke. That led to a lot of confusion in terms of sportsbooks refunding various bets.


"Under normal circumstances, we wouldn't give back the money, but for the last couple years, for the majors, we've decided to give back the money if a golfer doesn't tee off," said Johnny Avello, who runs that book. "It turns out to be such a hassle not to do the refund because for the next three months all you hear from those customers is about the money they lost."

"We had it for years when Tiger [Woods] didn't wind up playing, and it's not only golf. When Ole Miss got their bowl ban [in February], that didn't mean that anyone who bet on Mississippi got their money back."

Sports Betting Update: Euro sportsbooks likely suitors for CG Technology

UPDATE

Good article on the demise and potential future of CG Technology. Rumblings that Paddy Power-BetFair or Ladbrokes may be interested in taking over. Alarming that CG Technology was one of the few Las Vegas sportbooks to consistently take larger bets yet its hold was far less than other competitors.

Roger Goodell slowly warming to idea of the NFL in Las Vegas

03.29.2017     08:51 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Following the announcement that the Oakland Raiders will (eventually) move to Las Vegas, Roger Goodell offered his own "hot take." Goodell made it abundantly clear that he does not like gambling but seemed to acknowledge that the practice isn't as sinful as once thought. Though we found it interesting that he claimed Las Vegas was "different" from say, 10-20 years ago. Roger, we think you're getting your eras confused. What you meant to say was Las Vegas was no longer like this. Later, Goodell also mentioned that there was probably no need for sportsbooks to keep Las Vegas Raiders games off the board.

Owners vote in favor of Oakland to Las Vegas move

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's official. The Oakland Raiders announced they will relocate the team to Las Vegas. But don't get too excited. A stadium needs to be built and the team stated that they will remain in Oakland through at least the 2018 season.


"The Raiders were born in Oakland and Oakland will always be part of our DNA. We know that some fans will be disappointed and even angry, but we hope that they do not direct that frustration to the players, coaches and staff. We plan to play at the Coliseum in 2017 and 2018, and hope to stay there as the Oakland Raiders until the new stadium opens. We would love nothing more than to bring a championship back to the Bay Area."
