Tracking betting by Game
Betting on football, baseball and basketball every single hit on an all-time high in Nevada at 2017, according to the UNLV Center for Gaming Research. The landscape has changed in recent years.
Although the amount of money bet annually on football over the last four decades has stayed relatively flat, last year’s soccer share was 36 percent, the lowest rate since at least 1992, once the state started making sport-specific statistics available.
Baseball in 2017 made more than 23 percent of the general pool, the most for that game since generating 25% in 2001.
The”other” category, including hockey, soccer and many other sports, composed a record 9 percentage of betting annually, doubling the share it had in 2005. Casino operators have reported an increase in NHL gambling since the Vegas Golden Knights started play last autumn.
Basketball’s share has ranged from 28 to 31% for the previous six decades, and also the $1.48 billion wagered from 2017 was more than double the sport’s 2011 gambling.
U.S. revenue projections, post-PASPA
Eilers & Krejcik Gaming estimate that the total annual revenue that controlled sports gambling could create in the U.S. throughout the initial five years of operation, assuming a full repeal of PASPA in early 2018. The projections are based on the study firm’s assumption that 32 states will authorize sports gambling by 2023, if PASPA is repealed.
