Wow, you've really sold that to me Peter!

Where can I sign up? :lol:
https://www.tvg.com/ :lol:

Worth a nose, it looks like they have added a bit of content and a differing framework from what I remember. I accidentally got in the shot when I had a tour of the facilities 4/5 years ago.

Do you think these guys at tvg.com accept arbing? The price differences are tremendous!
One can not sign up unless one is a US citizen but I know a couple of people who are American and live in England.

Decent read why European books are shit.

Just hope the conclusions for USA are wrong.

This isnt really just Betfair, but wont start another thread.

6 US states have now legalised sports betting .. New mexico being the latest. I think tax rates there will be prohibitive .. making lines v poor value .. but maybe they will learn.

The handle of New jersey for the 1st 3 mths : (handle is amount wagered in state) - 7 physical and 9 virtual books

Month 1 .. $40m' (July)

Month 2 .. $97m (Aug)

Month 3 .. $194m ... people literally standing in line for 2 hrs to place a bet.

To put it in some perspective .. las vegas handle, is not often over $400m a mth, with all of the casinos etc.

//

Sports Betting roadshows started .. $450 for the privaledge to attend a boot-camp. Maybe they looking for speakers ??

My understanding is that the supreme court has allowed states to legislate for off-course betting. Changes in law doesn't usually happen quickly - it's a lengthy process.

I haven't seen much of a push apart for the introduction of a few sportsbooks.
