Would You Bet On The Red Wings/Hockey If Legal In Michigan?

from Breana Noble and Beth LeBlanc of the Detroit News,

Detroit's casinos are making preparations for sports betting — even though it's not legal in Michigan.

The establishments are making investments in support of the activity as they push to cash in on the business in one of America's biggest sports towns. Some estimate sports betting could generate millions in annual tax revenue for the state. Details on how much the state should tax the activity, however, are holding up legalization.

A new sports lounge near the hotel entrance of MGM Grand Detroit is expected to open soon and could serve as a sportsbook should the state legalize the games. Meanwhile, Penn National Gaming Inc., the new operator of the Greektown Casino, has entered into decades-long agreements with four internet gaming operators to bring sports betting to its 41 locations in 19 states; two potentially could operate in Michigan.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
