Delaware officially beat New Jersey out of the gate this week, accepting the first legal single-game sports bet outside of Nevada since PASPA was repealed last month. And that first bet, placed by Gov. Carney, was a +200 winner!

In Episode 7 of TheLines Podcast, Matt Brown, Dustin Gouker and Brett Collson break down all of the happenings in Delaware and what to expect now that New Jersey is nearing its own launch. Plus, will we ever see college sports return to the daily fantasy sports platter?
