This thread was discussed in February. Now, I am biased since I live in Las Vegas and do enjoy betting on college sports.
I too am waiting for the Michigan paper to list the names of the officials contacted. If you notice the numbers they put into the article basically match the national average for problem gamblers
We in Las Vegas say if legal gambling is outlawed then who will regulate the sport. The sports books do a good job of recognizing when too much money is being played on one side, as in the Arizona State game about 3 years ago.
By the way, at a sports bar across from my hotel I asked where I could place a bet and they gave me a phone number here in Indianapolis.
So much for regulation--just like prohibition.
