While the odds of the Oakland Raiders moving to Las Vegas seem decent, the underlying issue is will local sportsbooks be able to
? Oddsmaker Jay Kornegay brought up a good point that if their games aren't on the board it'll continue to make sports betting look taboo.
“As much as we want to see a pro franchise, I certainly would not be in favor of taking those games off the board,” said Jay Kornegay, the race and sports book director of the Westgate Superbook. “It’d be sending the wrong message. It’s stating something is wrong with the industry.”
“Future sports betting, when it spreads across the United States, will be modeled after Nevada,” Rood said. “We’re one of the most highly regulated industries in America. I’d put us up against any banking or Wall Street regulations. That stringent. And I would think the leagues will embrace that. We want the same thing the leagues want: games played with integrity.”
