NCAA tries to block sports betting in New Jersey

Gov. Chris Christie for signing a law in January that permitted betting on college and professional games at casinos and racetracks. Sports gambling is illegal in most states.

The document says the regulations will go into effect within the next two months, at which point casinos in Atlantic City and racetracks throughout the state can apply for sports gambling licenses.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — The National Collegiate Athletic Association and some of the most prominent sports leagues in America are trying to keep sports betting out of New Jersey.

The Division of Gaming Enforcement published its proposed regulations for gambling at casinos and racetracks on July 2. The public comment period to protest the proposed regulations ends on Aug. 31, according to the complaint.

The governor’s office was not immediately available for comment.

They said sports gambling “would irreparably harm amateur and professional sports by fostering suspicion that individual plays and final scores of games may have been influenced by factors other than honest athletic competition.”

The National Collegiate Athletic Association is trying to block New Jersey from allowing sports betting at Atlantic City casinos and at racetracks around the state.

“Gambling on amateur and professional sports threatens the integrity of those sports,” said the NCAA and the sports leagues in court documents.

The complaint says the state is violating a federal law “enacted by Congress in 1992 in order to halt the spread of gambling on sporting events in the United States.” To top of page.

The NCAA, along with the National Football League, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League and Major League Baseball, filed a complaint in New Jersey federal district court on Tuesday to try to block state officials from authorizing sports gambling.

The complaint targets N.J. The complaint also names David Rebuck, assistant attorney general and director of the state’s Division of Gaming Enforcement, as well as Frank Zanzuccki, executive director of the New Jersey Racing Commission

Many have grown up choosing a side and bitterly defending their colors. Heck, Kyle Whittingham was the WAC’s 1981 Defensive Player of the Year for the Cougars. “It’s a lot of fun, and it’s exciting, and a lot of good people involved with both fan bases.

In a Q&A with ESPN in February, Utah defensive coordinator Morgan Scalley praised Sitake, noting that he thought the rivalry had “gotten a little bit nasty” of late.

Take this season, for example. Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham and his BYU counterpart and former protégé, Kalani Sitake, are exchanging pleasantries, not jabs, through the media. “I don’t see that happening.”

“I don’t see it as a big-time rivalry with hatred as a lot of others see it,” Sitake said. Ena was a three-time all-conference linebacker. And if he can win by five touchdowns, all the better. “We’re the best of friends.”

Kalani Sitake brings his alma mater to Rice-Eccles Stadium on Saturday to try to snap BYU’s five-game skid against Utah and his longtime boss, Kyle Whittingham. Joe Camporeale/USA TODAY Sports

Said Sitake: “I know I love Kyle and Kyle loves me, and we’re going to be friends no matter what. Whittingham never said the two were “best of friends.” Because they weren’t.

But on the field, it’s possible, and one hopes, we’ll see a more respectful game.

“He’s a guy I respect,” Scalley said. I could list 20 anecdotes about the rivalry through the years, and there would be at least 50 more that I’d be leaving out.

BYU has three former Utah assistants on its staff: Sitake, Ilaisa Tuiaki and Steve Kaufusi.

“I’ll never say anything bad about the University of Utah, about the athletic program and especially about the football team, because they were great to me, and I think that’s important for me to share that with everyone.”

“I don’t know if that will have a major impact with the fan base,” Whittingham said. While Whittingham and former BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall were never outwardly disrespectful, they weren’t going out of their way to be complimentary to each other, either. I’m excited for him and his opportunity at BYU.”

“I can say that I have a great relationship with Kalani,” Whittingham said. They talk and text frequently … And as Whittingham’s coaching tree continues to grow and players from each school become coaches, the crossover between the two staffs will probably breed more admiration and less acrimony.

This isn’t entirely uncharted territory. … There are four former BYU football players on the Utah coaching staff: Whittingham, Aaron Roderick, Justin Ena and Fred Whittingham. “I’ve coached underneath him, and he’s always been there for me. Where’s Max Hall dropping “H” bombs? Doesn’t everyone (except in Oregon and New Jersey) pump their own gas now?

One of college football’s nastiest rivalries (historically), it appears, has smoothed over its edges. “It’s about respect. Former Utah coach Ron McBride and BYU counterpart LaVell Edwards shared a friendship and a strong mutual respect.

Welcome to the Holy Warm-and-fuzzy.

Let’s be clear, neither coach is saying he doesn’t want to win. It’s a fawning that would make the Mutual Admiration Society jealous.

“To me, that’s what football is about,” Sitake said. Sitake and Whittingham golf in the offseason. because …

Enter Sitake, who branched out on his own in 2015 and was the defensive coordinator at Oregon State before BYU snatched him up. There are still fan bases to appease.

What?

One thing is for sure: The Holy War is beginning a new chapter. It looks as though we might be in for a softer, gentler Holy War. The fans might not feel the same way. I think they’ll play a much cleaner game.”

Many of them are still good friends. This is going to be one of those things that extends our friendship where we get on the football field and compete and we’ll hug afterwards.”

And the fact is, Whittingham owned the rivalry with Mendenhall, going 7-3, including a current five-game winning streak. though not this week … He put an exclamation point on it at last season’s Las Vegas Bowl, when the Utes won 35-28 to send Mendenhall to his new job at Virginia with yet another loss to the Utes (how’s that new gig working out, by the way?).

That might be the most anti-bulletin board quote of all time!. And new Utah receivers coach Guy Holliday coached at BYU from 2013-2015.

Love! Hugs! Best of friends! Way to mix it up, fellas.

Now, about basketball …

“This is one of those weeks where we want to respect their preparation,” Sitake said.

Where’s the vitriol? Where’s the bulletin board material? Where’s Seni Fauonuku dropping “D” bombs. And for that reason, friendships among the coaches probably won’t sway those in the stands.

The history of the rivalry, frankly, is too extensive to dive into with one column, though our Sam Strong did a nice job here

And this isn’t the first time that allegations of underaged gymnasts have plagued the Chinese team. Ten years after the 2000 Games, the International Olympic Committee stripped that Chinese Team of its bronze medal, after uncovering evidence that star gymnast Dong Fangxiao was only 14 when she competed.

Though He Kexin’s passport officially says that she was 16 at the time of the 2008 Olympic Games, Chinese media reported that she and other teammates may have actually been as young as fourteen at the time.

However, questions were later raised about her potentially being too young to compete.

He Kexin of China poses after winning one of two gold medals in the women’s uneven bars at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

So, if a gymnast looks like she couldn’t possibly be 16, there’s a good chance she isn’t yet.

Sports betting vs. the stock market: Which is riskier?

But take it from one person who has lots of experience in both worlds. For example, a stop-loss order instructs a broker to dump a stock when it tumbles below a specific price.

Gamblers and investors also have far different time horizons.

In the long run, investors have the chance to make more money because there are fewer downside risks. He asked for his identity to be withheld due to legal concerns.

“A large, steady company has a low chance of plummeting and causing you to lose all your money, but even Peyton Manning doesn’t cover the spread sometimes,” he said. A bettor gambling on the Green Bay Packers will instantly lose his or her entire $500 bet if Aaron Rodgers and his teammates fail to win or cover the spread.

However, someone sinking $500 into Apple stock has little risk of losing that entire initial investment, especially in the short term.

. It’s easy to see why fans may be tempted to gamble on their favorite teams and athletes.

Manning is really, really good at what he does for a living.

A stock can theoretically be held onto for an infinite amount of time, but a sports bet can end in the blink of an eye.

“You’re making a wager based on some facts and some intuitions. Heck, even his commercials are funny.

“A lot of people regard investing as gambling, but I frequently say no. Gambling on football star Peyton Manning to win might seem like a safe bet, especially compared with picking winners in the stock market. Gambling on sports may be more fun, but it’s definitely a more risky use of money than putting it in the stock market.

Such hedging tools are not as readily or even feasible to sports gamblers, Fine said. And in neither instance can you be guaranteed to be correct,” said Randall Fine, managing director of The Fine Point Group, one of the casino industry’s largest consulting firms.

Those are pretty good odds. Which casino in Atlantic City, Las Vegas or Macau pays the bettor 73% of the time?” said Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at S&P Capital IQ.

To put it another way, the stock market is a lot more forgiving than the MGM Grand (let alone your local sports bookie).

“Betting is more difficult and riskier,” said one resident of Hoboken, New Jersey, who bets on illegal gambling sites and also invests in stocks. While many stocks offer steady returns, investors sometimes hit the jackpot (think: buying Apple back in early 2009 or Tesla in 2012).

The same can’t be said for those who bet big on the Denver Broncos last Super Bowl.

They both believe they can predict the future, and they sometimes fall into the trap of making decisions with their hearts instead of their brains. And of course, they both hate to lose.

“You can hold onto your betting tickets all your life, but you’re not going to get squat,” said Stovall.

And investors have greater access to tools that can minimize the risk of losing money.

Even the unlucky investors who jumped into the market at its peak in October 2007 eventually made their money back when stocks reclaimed their pre-recession levels in 2013.

That’s the percentage of time that Stovall’s research shows the S&P 500 — the gold standard in the stock market — has increased in value during the years since 1926.

Investors also have the ability to spread their money out among many stocks. People often invest in funds that buy dozens or even hundreds of stocks, which helps reduce the risk.

At the same time, investing in stocks actually carries higher upside potential.

All or nothing: Gambling on sports tends to be a zero-sum game. The stock might go up and down some, but it typically doesn’t go to zero

All Bets Are Off On ‘Survivor’

He declined further comment on the allegations, or on any action CBS might take.

© 2003 The Associated Press. The winner is unknown until he or she is chosen in a vote by other contestants during a live broadcast.

“We’re pretty sure this is the case,” Bradley said. All Rights Reserved. The biggest payoff, $8,000, came on a $1,000 bet placed on the fifth “Survivor” at 8-to-1 odds.

An online sportsbook said it has dropped betting on CBS’ “Survivor” after allegedly finding that network employees were wagering – and winning – on the hit reality show.

The Costa Rica-based BoDog.com found at least two CBS employees betting on the show’s outcome, said BoDog spokesman Lance Bradley. Most offshore sportsbooks accept such alternative bets, said BoDog’s Bradley.

Odds will be offered on the seventh “Survivor” but all bettors will be carefully monitored, BoDog President Rob Gillespie said in a statement.

He wasn’t aware of any other possible legal sanctions.

“Only ‘The X-Files’ has more conspiracy theories than ‘Survivor,'” CBS spokesman Chris Ender said. The suspicion is they had insider knowledge, he said.

The show narrows the field to two finalists in filmed competitions. Bradley said that bets taken from those alleged to be with CBS skewed the odds significantly on “Survivor” contestants.

At least two players have been identified as CBS employees and other names may be connected to the network or may be aliases, Bradley said. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed. For the current “Survivor,” the bets in question affected the odds for contestants Jenna Morasca of Pittsburgh, Pa., and Matthew Von Ertfelda of Washington, D.C.

Betting on events other than sports or racing is banned in Las Vegas sportsbooks, a spokeswoman for the Nevada Gaming Control Board said Thursday. “Some have been right, many have been wrong.”

They wagered correctly on who would be the final two contestants in both the fourth and fifth editions of “Survivor,” Bradley said. Asked if BoDog might consider legal action, he replied: “It’s not something we’d want to pursue, as a matter of precedent.”

By Lynn Elber

“Throughout the history of ‘Survivor,’ many have believed they knew the outcome of the show,” Ender said.

BoDog requires that bettors must not have knowledge of an event’s outcome. One person was said by BoDog to work in a “production role” for CBS.

Callers to the Bodog.com offices were told that wagers were no longer being accepted on “Survivor.”

The players’ current bets on “Survivor: Amazon” have been canceled and their money refunded, Bradley said. The players in question opened accounts with BoDog before “Survivor: Marquesas,” the fourth show, and bet only on the show and no other events.
