GALLERIES AT THE PGA NORTHERN TRUST FEATURED A LOT OF GOLF GOSSIP, BUT SEEMINGLY LITTLE SPORTS BETTING BY JOHN BRENNAN







The first-ever PGA Tour event in the U.S. where the spectators on the course could legally bet on the golfers as they strolled down the fairways kicked off Thursday at Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, N.J.
Cell phones were in constant use among many in the gallery that followed Tiger Woods around the course at The Northern Trust, the first stage of the four-event FedEx Cup playoffs. But were any using them to check the constantly-updated odds of his winning the tournament on  DraftKings Sportsbook?
If they were, it sure was discreet. I walked amid that gallery for a few holes and heard plenty of business talk – one conversation was about a project that required “$150 million in seed money.” Whew!

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: NJ’S TOP GAMING REGULATOR PREDICTS FLOOD OF ONLINE SPORTS BETTING SOON BY JOHN BRENNAN







It’s been more than two months since New Jersey legalized sports betting – both online and at state casinos and racetracks – and the NFL regular season is only two weeks away.

Yet so far, there are only two such legal online/mobile sites – the DraftKings offering     in partnership with    Resorts Casino    and Borgata-licensed playMGM.
Is that all there is? Not at all, the state’s chief regulator, Division of Gaming Enforcement Director David Rebuck, told NJ Online Gambling this week in a wide-ranging interview at his office in Atlantic City.

Don't look now, but the NFL regular season kicks off in less than a month. So where do teams stand now, and what has changed since our post-draft edition?

The ESPN power panel -- a group of more than 80 writers, editors and TV personalities -- evaluated how all 32 teams stack up, with a look at players who could be surprising contributors or veterans who are in danger of being left off the roster.

NJ HORSEMEN CONTINUE TO PLAY THE ROLE OF AGGRESSOR AGAINST SPORTS LEAGUES BY JOHN BRENNAN







The New Jersey Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association (NJTHA) is on a roll and charging ahead with confidence.
Along with the top elected officials in the state, the horsemen got the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a 26-year-old law banning Las Vegas-style sports betting outside of Nevada. The NJTHA has also  filed a suit seeking $150 million in damages     due to years of delay in implementing the betting at Monmouth Park.

Now, these same horsemen have upped the ante again, suggesting that what before was called “bad faith” could straddle the line, and beyond, of “a federal crime.”

Official Golf Data Related To Sports Betting Unaffected In PGA Of America Hack by Joss Wood
















The hackers have encrypted files containing marketing materials relating to the PGA Championship at Bellerive and next month’s Ryder Cup in France.
Instead of their work on promotional banners and logos, staff found a threatening message on their computers:
“Your network has been penetrated. All files on each host in the network have been encrypted with a strong algorythm.” [sic]
Spelling obviously isn’t one of the hackers areas of expertise, but they’ve effectively taken control of some of the PGA of America’s assets.

DraftKings’ NFL Week 1 Marketing Device Is Alive And Well For 2018 Season by JD McNamara


















Another football season is almost upon us, which means DraftKings has once again released its NFL opening week salaries … in July.
For those of you checking your calendars, the first game of the 2018-2019 NFL season isn’t until Thursday, September 6, with the main Sunday slate a few days later on September 9. Heck, the preseason hasn’t even kicked off yet (but it does soon, in case you want to enter some NFL preseason DFS contests).
I’ll get into a breakdown of the reasons DraftKings releases its NFL salaries so early, but let’s cut to the chase: It’s a marketing device that remains alive and well because it works, and it benefits DraftKings more than anybody else.
