NBA's Silver: Legalize sports gambling

the stock market

Leagues have opposed sports betting because of the possibility it could compromise their games' integrity -- a big concern ever since the thrown World Series in 1919, where Chicago players conspired with gamblers to intentionally lose the games.

Silver says it is important to protect the integrity of games, but argues that it would be easier, not tougher, with legalized gambling.

"I believe that sports betting should be brought out of the underground and into the sunlight where it can be appropriately monitored and regulated," he said.

NBA's Silver: Legalize sports gambling - Nov. 14, 2014 by Chris Isidore   @CNNMoney November 14, 2014: 2:46 PM ET

Don't bet on him being the last. "Over half of them have legal casinos." He quoted estimates that $400 billion is wagered on sports every year.

But beyond those kinds of sponsorship deals, the leagues are betting that the biggest side benefit that gambling will generate is greater interest in their sport.

Fantasy sports is a form of sports gambling which is allowed under current law. That's also the main reason that despite being an attractive and growing market, no major sports team is based in Las Vegas.

"Gambling has increasingly become a popular and accepted form of entertainment in the United States," Silver wrote in an Op-Ed Friday in The New York Times. And the New England Patriots already have a deal with a rival site DraftKings.

But there are already some signs of a change of heart at the NFL, the same league that once banned Vegas tourism commercials from the Super Bowl lest it be seen as endorsing gambling.

In the Op-Ed, Silver called on Congress to change the law prohibiting sports gambling in most of the country since 1992. And that means even bigger broadcast rights deals for the leagues, which is where the big money lies. It is estimated to be a $1.4 billion a year business.

The National Football League, Major League Baseball and the NCAA did not have a comment Friday on Silver's position.

The NBA announced its own partnership deal with FanDuel on Thursday that grants it an equity stake in the site.

"Most states offer lotteries," He wrote.

Silver was acknowledging what has been obvious in the world of sports for decades: people like to gamble on their favorite games, and will find ways to do so, no matter what the law says.

On Friday, the Washington Redskins announced a marketing agreement with FanDuel, which runs daily fantasy games.

More interest means even better ratings for what has increasingly become the most valuable programming on television
