Las Vegas Casinos To Take Bets On NFL Draft For The First Time Ever
By National Review,April 08, 2017
Great news for those folks who have long pined for the day when it was legal to bet on the NFL Draft. According to theLas Vegas Review-Journal, the Nevada Gaming Control Board granted approval for sports books in the state to allow bettors to wager on the proceedings -- but with several stipulations.
Bettors won’t be able to wager on which player will be the No. 1 overall pick. But they’ll be able to wager on the total number of quarterbacks drafted in the first round, whether there will be more offensive players than defensive players drafted in the first round, and the over/under of the draft position for the first kicker taken, to name a few.
