TheLines Podcast Episode 11: When Will We Have Online Sports Betting In NJ?

Posted By Brett Collson on July 6, 2018

Sportsbooks in New Jersey and Delaware have been accepting legal bets for weeks. But the wait is on for online operators in the Garden State to flip the switch and open up even more possibilities for bettors.

In Episode 11 of TheLines Podcast, Matt Brown, Dustin Gouker and Eric Ramsey update the latest happenings on that front, including a possible delay for new operators like DraftKings and FanDuel in NJ. Plus, the crew discusses a controversy in the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest and the potential need for ‘integrity fees’ in future eating events.
