    Between games they were talking about Michigan state covering the spread. When did ESPN become so openly supportive of gambling?

    Gambling is going to be legal on sports within 5 years. :grad:

    In some effects, it already is with sites like Draftkings and those 1 day fantasy leagues. They are going to be the future bookies.

    America, degenerating before your eyes.

    It's their new thing. I think they're trying to get ahead of the inevitable legalization of gambling.

    Van Pelt is supposed to be doing an entire segment on covering spreads with his new late night talk show-esque SportsCenter.

    Over in England, you can bet on the soccer games in the stadium during the game.

    Can't wait for the first major epic match fixing scandal in American sports.





    Meanwhile, Pete Rose is signing baseball cards on a folding table in the Cooperstown Holiday Inn. :wtf:

    OK.

    It's still going to be the legal bookmaker once we legalize sports gambling in 5 years. :grad:

    I wasn't eye rolling you, just how they are circumventing the rules.

    I'm all for the legalization of gambling.

    Yeah I was right there with you. I lived in the gambling thread in the Ferrell forum with ALC, timdawg and that gay, lispy, Jewish idiot KOAW.

    I actually tracked how many "units" I was +/- :facepalm:
