As Sports Betting Grows, States Tackle Teenage Problem Gambling – Route Fifty

This story was originally posted by Stateline, an initiative of the Pew Charitable Trusts.

With online and retail sports betting now legal in more than 30 states, the portrait of a new problem gambler is emerging: the high school student.

Although the legal age for gambling ranges from 18 to 21 depending on the state, between 60% and 80% of high school students report having gambled for money in the past year, according to the National Council on Problem Gambling. The group says…….

MLB (0.5 Unit) St Louis Cardinals/Cincinnati Reds Over 10.5 (-110): 5:40 PM CT on Bally Sports OH

This game features two offenses that have been hot, two starting pitchers that have not, and weather that is extremely hot. That justifies this high total, but I still see these teams getting over it.

The Reds and Cards have definitely figured out how to score against each other, with the past five meetings of the season series averaging 12 runs per game. I don’t see any le…….

NCAA Tournament (0.5 Unit) Arkansas First Half +5 vs. Gonzaga (-110): 6:10 PM on CBS

Gonzaga has not been sharp out of the gates in this tournament, leading Georgia State by 2 and trailing Memphis by 10 at their respective halftimes. The third time could be a charm, but I’m seeing a team so far that’s much better at making halftime adjustments than starting strong. Plus, Arkansas has to come out firing here and hope to get an early lead before their disadvantages inevitably …….

NBA (0.75 Unit) Brooklyn Nets -2 @ Memphis Grizzlies (-110): 6:30 PM CT on ESPN

This could be a little square, but the narrative here tells me it’s Nets or nothing in this spot. Brooklyn playing on the road with Kyrie Irving, on national TV, against a Grizzlies team missing Ja Morant seems like the perfect situation for the Nets to flex their muscles. Memphis has not been bad without Morant this season, but this Brooklyn team is just different on the road.

From the tables to the bully pulpit – A former addict’s mission to combat problem gambling – ESPN

On a late afternoon in June 2018, Craig Carton is at a high-limit blackjack table in a casino just outside of Philadelphia.

The high-profile New York sports-talk host is fighting an internal battle between his ego and his soul. He needs to double down but doesn’t have the cash in front of him.

Nine months earlier, Carton had been arrested by federal agents at his home and charged with fraud for his role in a concert ticket resale scheme, some of the proceeds from which he used to …….

NCAA CBI (0.75 Unit) UNC-Wilmington/Northern Colorado Over 153 (-110): 6:00 PM CT on ESPN2

Often times these neutral-site tournaments see lower-scoring games as teams aren’t used to the sightlines for shooting. But that certainly hasn’t been a problem for either of these squads, with both seeing their offensive efficiency marks exceed season averages in this event. They’ve also played close and fast-paced games the last two days, and with this being the third game in as ma…….
