The problem with college bettingBy Kevin Bendesky, Yale Daily NewsSeptember 11, 2018 at 12:41 pmIf I were a betting man looking for a sure thing, I’d probably wager that our men’s lacrosse team wins the Ivy League again. If I wanted a bit of an underdog, I’d take a good hard look at our men’s soccer squad — no, seriously, they’re going to be really good this year. And in 2019, it just might be legal to wager on Ivy League games.Over the summer, the Supreme Court struck down the federal law that had previously almost entirely banned sports betting across the nation. Shortly thereafter, several states set up legal betting. Just this Sunday, dozens of New York Giants fans placed their wagers, walked across the street and took their seats in the Meadowlands — which is in New Jersey, not New York, but I digress. For professional athletes, legalized betting probably doesn’t have much of an effect. But for fans and college athletes, the impact of sports betting is potentially far greater.
