Would NHL In-Game Gambling Interest You Down The Line?

from Andrew Marchand of the New York Post,

Major League Baseball and Barstool Sports have had significant negotiations about having national midweek games on the site’s platforms, The Post has learned.

The discussions are what Barstool founder Dave Portnoy was referring to last week when he mentioned his company has had talks with “major leagues.”

MLB and Barstool potentially could team up to create a new type of broadcast with a focus on in-game gambling.

The talks have started recently, and while they have picked up steam, an agreement is not yet a certainty. One source deemed it “50-50.”

If they want that they can start their own feed and channel for gambling but DO NOT try and force feed me that crap.

I will be completely done with the NHL if that happens.

Gambling is for lucky people and suckers, and I’m neither.

And no, I won’t be going to Barstool’s website ever, for any reason.

The only gambling I’ll do is a few bucks at a blackjack table or horse track every other year. I’ve got other things I’d rather waste money on.

So many haters. As long as it isn’t part of the main broadcast, I think a separate betting feed with live odds and wagers available would be fun for those that enjoy betting and of course a good revenue stream for the league.
