MLB€S REQUEST FOR A CUT OF GAMBLING PROCEEDS €LAUGHABLE€

Leagues that fought N.J. sports betting want cut of the action if it's legalized. Guess how that went?

But now, the NBA and MLB are asking states across the U.S. to allow them a percentage of the total amount wagered on their games should the nation's highest court side rule in favor of New Jersey and overturn a 26-year-old ban on sports betting in all but four states.

The court could issue a ruling as early as next week.

The leagues say the fee is part of a broader effort to protect the integrity of their sports and prevent cheating and game-fixing. Plus, they say, they deserve compensation for providing the games on which the bets are made.

Representatives for the NBA and MLB have met privately with New Jersey's leaders in recent months to prepare.
