Tennessee betting bill has a few odd quirks

You know why it's good to be The House?

Because even folks who really know what they're doing don't win all the time.

And most people have no idea what they're doing.

That's not just true when "The House" refers to casinos, but when it refers to state legislatures.

In Tennessee, as a gambling bill progresses through the House, an amendment was proposed to eliminate all prop bets on college games.

The representative who made the proposal said when asked about it, "“I would assume that the pattern for this has been adopted from other states, I hope.”

Well, we all know what happens when one assumes. Tennessee would become the first state to prohibit prop bets on college games.

Another interesting part of the Tennessee bill: No brick-and-mortar betting sites. Only mobile. That seems odd to us here at Bettors Insider because legislators usually like to create jobs in addition to tax revenues.

For more on this read the story here at the always interesting Legal Sports Report.

Because you can bet on anything . . .

But always remember, one person's liability can be another person's asset. They tend to balance out.

Today's Schedule

Wednesday Results

There are days we'd just as soon forget about and yesterday was one of them. We still posted the results, however.

Kudos to Craig Dietel for going 3-1 on NHL playoff games. On the thoroughbred side, Chris Garrity won two of his four race picks at Keenland (and the fourth pick scratched) and RT won the first at Keeneland and the exacta. For the second day in a row, Sean Miller's usually dependable soccer picks got crushed by ties.

We'll try to do much better today.

Good luck at the tables, windows, kiosks and apps.
