Young State House News Service March 01, 2018 Wagers might generate between about $9 million and $61 million in state tax revenue if lawmakers decide to make sports betting legal in Massachusetts, the Gaming Commission said Thursday in a white paper that mapped out how the Legislature might think about introducing another new form of gaming in the Bay State.Massachusetts, like many other states, is waiting to learn if the US Supreme Court will strike down any or all of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, which limits which states can offer legal sports betting.

National Collegiate Athletic Association could come as soon as next week, and states are trying to position themselves to jump at any opportunity presented by legal sports betting.If the high court rules that states are free to legalize sports … [Read more...] about Report finds major revenue potential in sports betting

Every year, I remain surprised when I speak to avid fantasy football players that prefer not to utilize the waiver wire unless absolutely necessary. I wouldn’t advise everyone to go crazy with roster moves weekly. However, the best way to stay ahead or make up lost ground in the standings is to be on the lookout for talented players who fell through the cracks on draft day, emerged midseason as useful options or were cast aside too soon by trigger-happy owners. To hammer home how useful players can slip through the cracks, here’s a look at some of the top performers from the last four weeks who were late draft picks or went undrafted, according to ESPN average draft position (ADP) at the end of August. Alvin Kamara (RB, Saints) The undisputed 2017 king of sleepers leads all players in PPR scoring over the last four weeks.

Keep in mind: * Once a distribution contract is finalized, the programming can become available quickly. Recall what happened last year with DISH: The satellite carrier signed with the Pac12Nets in the wee hours of Saturday, Sept. 7 — and was beaming games into homes later that day. * That said, Arizona isn’t a big market for U-verse. We’ll see how much urgency exists on the AT&T end to make that game available. On the other hand, Los Angeles is a huge market for U-verse, and UCLA-Nevada is on the Pac-12Nets on Saturday at 7. * This is not another DirecTV situation, where the two sides were on course for a deal and then got derailed. As I reported this spring, the Pac12Nets and AT&T have agreed on the framework of a deal. That was accurate then and … [Read more...] about Pac-12 Networks: To the wire (and beyond?) with U-verse, plus additional distribution deals
