    I could see MLS or the NHL do something like this, heck the NHL already does with MGM being a league sponsor.

    The premier league advertises sports books and online sites for betting all the time.

    As mentioned, the NHL and MGM have a partnership.

    The NBA Summer League, held in Vegas, has MGM as their premier sponsor.

    If the games give the impression of being dirty, the fans will turn away from the leagues. The leagues need to guard the long-term health of their leagues, even at the unhappy acceptance that they forego short-term revenues.

    The games are already shady

    Good god, do you see bron bron flop?
    GLA whine to the refs and get high fives?

    The least they can do is pay off 1/2 the fans every week

    No, I really don't see that because I'm not watching the NBA, nor any NFL game that doesn't involve the Vikings.

    I would imagine there will be studies done on how the Premier League handles this; as the largest professional sports league in the world, I’d imagine they’re a good model to follow in regards to this.

    What leagues have tried to do, as I understand it, is to convince state legislatures to add an "integrity fee" tax to sports betting that would be turned over to the league. I don't think they've had much luck in this regard. The states aren't known for their willingness to share tax money.

    What you will probably see is a big push by the leagues to get Congress to adopt some sort of federal law governing sports betting, and include a fee with that.

    The problem with the leagues is that they always overplay their hand. They go in and ask for a percentage of the total amount bet, which no sane party would agree to since the sports books lose 40-50% of the bets placed.

    1-1.5% is the books profit out of a casino's total.

    That's the tax on the stupid. Still beats 5.3% on a (Vegas) roulette wheel, though.

    OTOH, the house takes 50% on state lotteries.

    Interested to see how it goes from here.

    I'll prob stick to online stuff if this happens in MN. Of course, I'll wait a bit, because I have a feeling there will be some shady businesses at first, trying to get in on the money. Yes, I know they will all have to be licensed and such, but there will still be some shenanigans at first.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I haven't bet on sports in probably 15 years, and haven't done online poker since the Full Tilt shutdown, obviously excluding FFL and the occasional bet with a friend.
