Sports betting world is about to change

New Jersey already has a state law in place and will have sports betting live very quickly.  Mississippi is not far behind.  Tunica will put a serious dent in the handle at Oaklawn and Southland if they set up sports books with the free drinks and food and all the betting options of Vegas.

Wonder how long before Oaklawn and Southland get the legislature to pass a sports book law?  And think about a short Fall meet during football season. They would go perfectly together.

Maybe not that long. Today's paper identifies owners and executives of Oaklawn and Southland as being among the largest donors to Asa's re-election campaign.

Mississippi state regulators could vote as early as June 21st and the sports books could go live 30 days later.  I had always heard MS had legalized sports books when they added casinos in the event the Federal law changed and it apparently is true.

I talked to some people who work at the Horseshoe in Tunica this weekend and they say it won't be long.
