NJ sports betting: Pennsylvania, NY gamblers cross state lines to wager here by Wayne Parry, Associated Press

ATLANTIC CITY – In the time it takes for a red light to turn green, Leonard Sciascia can get his sports bets made, turn around and head home.

The 39-year-old man from New York City’s Staten Island runs his own business selling advice on which teams to bet on. But when he wants to take his own advice, he needs to leave home and cross the border into New Jersey – the only place near him where sports betting is legal.

Poll: Majority of Maryland voters favor legalizing sports betting By Will Hobson and Emily Guskin

While Maryland voters likely will have to wait at least two years to decide whether to legalize sports gambling, a narrow majority of the state’s voters approve of adding lawful sports betting today, according to a Washington Post-University of Maryland poll.
The poll found 53 percent of registered voters in favor of legal professional sports gambling, with 37 percent opposed, and 10 percent of voters having no opinion. Those with strong opinions on the issue were about evenly divided, with 26 percent strongly disapproving of legal sports betting, and 24 percent strongly approving.

With all the attention on the legalization of sports betting across the United States, the focus now is on being ahead of the competition. For Steve Fezzik of odds provider, however, the recent changes mean there’s a larger well to draw from. “I think it’s the rising tide idea, that there’s plenty of room for more and more successful people in the industry that’s growing and is super healthy,” he said.
States legislating their own parameters of the industry, with New Jersey and Pennsylvania leading the way, will “really help my business,” Fezzik said.

Turnpike Sports® NFL Week 10 Picks


New Orleans Saints at Cincinnati Bengals

New Orleans is favored by 4.5 points with an O/U of 54

If anyone saw the Saints last week they know that they're the most complete team in the NFL right now. Although their acquisition of Dez Bryant will make the difference this week, it'll give that good Cincinnati Bengals defense something to think about in past coverage. I think the Saints will be just a little too much for the Bengals.

I'm taking the New Orleans Saints and laying the points in this one

The Seattle Seahawks at the Los Angeles Rams

The Rams are a 10 point favorite with an O/U of 50.5

The Rams are one of the best teams in the NFL but that's too many points in this game. These two teams played a couple weeks ago and the Rams eked out a 33 - 31 win and they had to come from behind to do it. Seattle's great defense should keep this closer than the point spread. I think the Rams will win, but not by 10.

I'm taking the Seattle Seahawks to cover.

Atlanta Falcons at the Cleveland Browns

Atlanta Falcons are 4 point favorite with an O/U of 50.5

The Falcons are much better team than the Brown's who are still reeling after the loss of their offense of coordinator and head coach. By the way the Browns have a better record against the spread this year, thanks to their very good start but Atlanta seems to have turned their season around after last week's win against the Washington Redskins and should be too much for the Browns to handle.

I'm taking the Atlanta Falcons and laying the points



Atlanta Falcons @ Cleveland Browns

Falcons are a 4 point favorite with an O/U of 50.5

The Browns fired the coach and offensive coordinator two weeks ago and, well, nothing's changed a lot in Cleveland.  They’re coming in to this game with a four game losing streak and seem to be completely lost as a team. The Browns defense is still good, but with the Falcons, they’re facing one of the best offensive teams in the league.  The line seems low here, but I’m going to lay the points and go with Atlanta.

Pick is Falcons

New Orleans Saints @ Cincinnati Bengals

Saints are a 4.5 point favorite with an O/U of 54

The Saints seem to have recovered nicely from that loss at Tampa Bay to open the season and they just look like they will keep getting better.  They just added Dez Bryant who should help an already incredibly potent offense even if it would be in just a small way. The Bengals have shown flashes this season.  Flashes of good and flashes of just downright ugly. I’m thinking the Saints will continue tearing through opponents and win this one.

Pick is Saints

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Indianapolis Colts

Colts are a 3 point favorite with an O/U of 46.5

The Jaguars are on a four game losing streak and look very beatable compared to last year’s team.  The defense isn’t as stout as it was and the offense isn’t too consistent or at time, even competent.  The Colts, on the other hand, are coming in after back to back wins against Oakland and Buffalo. Sure they Buffalo and Oakland, but they scored 34 or more points in 4 of their last 5 games and, to be honest, I’m going to trust Andrew Luck and company more than the Jaguars at this point.

Pick is Colts
