I love gambling, I fly to Vegas a few times a year to sit in an air conditioned sportsbook with my friends and yell at the TV’s.
The thing about placing a bet on your team is how it enhances the entire sports experience. I met a guy once at the sportsbook who summed it up, “When you place a bet on a game you clap louder and cheer louder.”
I’m not a hardcore gambler, most people aren’t. They play because it can suddenly make the Jets vs. Bills matchup into a very important game, and that ain’t easy. Having a little skin in the game makes everything more fun.
But I’m also lazy. I’d prefer to sit in the comfort of my own home and my comfy chair and place bets easily on my phone with a cold beer in hand.
And for the first time ever that can actually legally happen!
