Boy talk about pandora's box opening! Listening to all of the pundits out there and the talking heads throwing gigantic dollar signs everywhere..."now you are going to be able to sit at a game and live bet the next pitch or play"...do they really think that is going to happen? Seems like a long way off and why would you do that anyway? LOL...

I live in Virginia and we don't even have a casino in the state so I'm guessing we will be one of the last states unless there is some kind of easy federal guideline to follow-  we do have lottery of course and horse racing and DFS which is something but I still think we will be the last one as it's been this long while Delaware and Maryland collect all of the Virginia gambling taxes with their casinos....

I'm really not sure where we will end up - one thing I read that would be important is that they didnt' address crossing state lines so if Vegas has a -7 and New Jersey has a -10 could someone in another state middle it somehow? How much vig are we talking about? Guessing a lot of the public won't care if it's -120 or -125 as long as they can bet which will be huge for the state coffers...and maybe it will be great for people that are used to gambling and there will be some great dog lines out there after the public throws a pile of cash on a favorite?

What does everyone think? Anyone live in New Jersey or any of the other fast track states that are close to having this already? Heard that Jersey wants to be ready for the NBA finals which is REALLY fast....

Also what impact will this have on the offshore books? Will they give us better bonuses with less rollover to get business now that they will be competing with legal state run books? I doubt that New Jersey will give you a 100% free play bonus LOL...

Bookies give credit...big difference when gamblers have to pay out of pocket for a wager...This is just making the piece of the pie bigger for everyone

Yes I've heard that credit angle from a couple of places - definitely won't be able to get credit at one of these state run books...thanks for the comment and please post if you have any other thoughts...

wonder if tout TV will come out of the woodwork - I remember a Sunday morning show before the internet was big that had guys with 800 numbers screaming at the TV all morning - LOL

I'm in Montana, which is relatively loose with gambling but only live poker and machines. I don't see much happening for me anytime soon. I just hope a law gets passed that opens it up for legal online gambling, or at least a state regulated betting site. If the juice is anything over -115, it won't be worth it though. That's the biggest thing I'm worried about.
