    On day when Gov. Murphy had no public appearances scheduled, he signed the sports betting bill into law.


    So the William Hill book at Monmouth Park should be up and running shortly, along with MGM Resorts Intl book at Borgata.

    sure did drag his @ss, they could have been taking wagers this past weekend

    Governor Murphy Signs Sports Betting Bill

    Ending a more than eight-year odyssey to bring sports betting to New Jersey, Gov. Philip D. Murphy signed a bill on Monday that legalizes wagering, making it likely that gambling could start later this week — just in time for the start of the World Cup soccer championship.


    For a law that is designed to restore some of the glitz and glamour of Atlantic City casinos, the governor’s signing was the opposite: a signature behind closed doors and a statement emailed to the news media.


    “Today, we’re finally making the dream of legalized sports betting a reality for New Jersey,” said Mr. Murphy in a statement announcing that he had signed the bill. “It means that our casinos in Atlantic City and our racetracks throughout our state can attract new business and new fans, boosting their own long-term financial prospects. This is the right move for New Jersey and it will strengthen our economy.”


    The last remaining hurdle standing between would-be bettors and, say, a 6-to-1 wager on Spain to win the World Cup, is the licensing process, which is being expedited to accommodate the desire to get betting operations up and running as soon as possible.



    It’s the New Jersey Racing Commission that handles the licensing for the racetracks. It has scheduled a meeting on Wednesday, presumably to accept applications and distribute licenses to operators, enabling Monmouth Park to begin accepting bets as early as Thursday. The state’s other two racetracks are still a few weeks away from being fully operational because they need to build venues and train employees.


    The casinos are governed by the state’s Division of Gaming Enforcement, which follows a process similar to the racing commission of posting regulations, accepting applications and then distributing licenses.

    The Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa is the only casino that is prepared to immediately begin taking bets, transforming some betting windows at its horse-racing facility into a temporary sports-gambling site until a permanent venue is completed. Atlantic City’s six other casinos continue to prepare for sports betting. Some need to build space; others need a sports book partner to set up an operation.


    Those hoping to place bets online or through a mobile device will still have to wait to gamble: The legislation includes a clause stating that online sports betting cannot start within 30 days of the bill signing. The establishment of sports betting in New Jersey has been years in the making as the state pursued a legal battle that culminated in last month’s landmark United States Supreme Court decision striking down a law that effectively banned such gambling in most states.


    The State Legislature passed the bill on Thursday, but no casino or racetrack could begin taking bets until the governor signed it, leading gamblers, sports betting operators and some lawmakers to clamor for Mr. Murphy to move quickly.

    The State Legislature passed the bill on Thursday, but no casino or racetrack could begin taking bets until the governor signed it, leading gamblers, sports betting operators and some lawmakers to clamor for Mr. Murphy to move quickly.

    A last-minute amendment to the legislation, removing a line that initially threatened punitive action against any operator that accepted wagers on sporting events before it was signed, still was not enough to open the gates to betting before action from Mr. Murphy.

    Dennis A. Drazin, the operator of Monmouth Park who helped lead the charge to make sports betting legal in the state, had been hoping to start taking bets last Friday, in time for Game 4 of the National Basketball Association finals and the start of the Subway Series between the Yankees and Mets.

    But the governor held off signing the bill, saying that his office needed to review the legislation for potential legal issues.

    “We’re not going to sit on it,” Mr. Murphy said on Friday.

    Mr. Murphy, a die-hard soccer fan who used to sit on the board of the U.S. Soccer Foundation and owns a majority stake in Sky Blue FC, a professional women’s soccer team, could place his first bet later this week. While his statement did not indicate any plans to celebrate the advent of sports betting, the governor is scheduled to be the keynote speaker on Thursday at the East Coast Gaming Congress in Atlantic City.

    New Jersey is setting a much more reasonable expectation on what state revenue will be from sports betting:

    "The estimated state tax revenues that could be generated from sports betting are projected at approximately $13 million in the first full year of operation."

    No betting on certain types of games



    The NJ sports betting law puts in place a lot of limits on what types of wagers can be booked in the state. It limits or bans wagering on:

    High school games

    Collegiate games involving New Jersey-based teams or college games played at venues in the state.

    Esports



    The first point is going to be repeated everywhere, but the others may not be.

    West Virginia, for instance, did not limit wagering on colleges (and neither does Nevada). If one of the goals of regulating sports betting is to compete with the existing black market, limiting wagers on NJ colleges or games played in NJ is a bit self-defeating.

    The offshore sportsbooks and local bookies will still happily take action on those games if NJ does not. And the games that could have some of the highest amounts wagered on them in NJ are left to the black market.

    Esports is also another strange one. People are still a bit afraid of esports as an emerging vertical, and seeking to limit wagering on esports seems premature. It would certainly be wise to handle esports carefully, but just banning it because itís different isnít a great idea. But still, esports found its way into a sports betting law, and other states might see something they want to copy.

    Thereís also the provision that limits casinos that own stakes in sports teams or leagues. Golden Nugget Atlantic City owner Tilman Fertitta also owns the NBAís Houston Rockets. Under the new law, Golden Nugget can have a sportsbook, but it canít offer NBA betting.

    I made my Monmouth park sports betting debut.

    Went down to the beach at Point Pleasant. I was checking the lines and that Phillies-Mets game 1 line looked funky. So i headed over there on my way off the beach and made a small bet on the Mets and cashed. The place was okay. Bunch of seats and tables and T.V`s. Typical sportsbook. I was there from 3:45 until 7:30. Maybe 50 people the most.

    The post What to Expect at the Meadowlands’ FanDuel Sportsbook Launch appeared first on SportsHandle.
    The New Jersey sports betting scene will gain a new player Saturday morning when the Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford, N.J., introduces the FanDuel Sportsbook at Victory Sports Bar & Club in a soft launch.
    The sportsbook will open at 9:30 a.m. for dignitaries and then to the general public at 11 a.m. “There will be 27 television screens and 10 sports betting stations,” FanDuel spokesman Kevin Hennessey said in an email Tuesday. “It features high-top tables, a VIP area, leaning rails, bar stools, sofas, and dining chairs.”
    Patrons will be able to wager on baseball, bet futures and proposition wagers on football, wager on Wimbledon and on the World Cup finals taking place on Sunday night between France and the winner of Wednesday’s England-Croatia match. The sportsbook’s opening is significant for a number of reasons, especially those related to geography.

    Before we go into geography, one major milestone here is the official introduction of a heretofore daily fantasy sports operator into the legal U.S. sports betting market.
    Either the 1B or 1A to DraftKings in the daily fantasy business, while DraftKings has also landed a couple partnerships, FanDuel’s foray will come first.
    Tuesday, Meadowlands COO/general manager Jason Settlemoir confirmed in a conversation with Sports Handle that is indeed the FanDuel Sportsbook — and will not be branded in any way by the powerful Ireland-based bookmaker Paddy Power Betfair (PPB, or Betfair US), which in May announced its (pending) acquisition of FanDuel and the combining of their operations.
    “There will be 10 towers or windows with live tellers for sports betting, plus spots for parimutuel horse racing,” Settlemoir said of the physical setup of the facility, which is temporary for now and will expand by the end of August. “And two self-service terminals in there for parimutuel as well,” he added.
    Settlemoir would not speak to PPB’s and FanDuel’s discussions on branding, but noted PPB’s sizable investment in FanDuel and of the company’s value.
    “From an operator standpoint, the FanDuel name is totally recognizable within sports to people here in the United States,” he said.

    As for geography, the Meadowlands is located in a very advantageous spot in the swamps of Jersey.
    “We’re only eight miles away [from midtown Manhattan], and that really makes us, at this point in time, the only game in the area where you can make a legal sports bet,” Settlemoir said. “This is exciting and a welcome opportunity for us here.”
    Previously, Jeff Gural, chairman of New Meadowlands Racetrack LLC and Tioga Downs LLC, expressed his thrill with the New York legislature’s failure to pass a bill legalizing sports wagering before the close of its session on June 20.
    “New York did me such a favor by not passing sports betting,” Gural told the Associated Press in June. “That leaves me the entirety of New York City, Long Island, Westchester County. There are 15 million people that live within 20 miles (32 kilometers) of the Meadowlands. They gave me a tremendous gift.”
    As as a result, the Meadowlands will stand alone in the highly-populated area at least through the football seasons and likely through March Madness in 2019.
    Also in the Meadowlands’ backyard — literally — is MetLife Stadium, home of the New York Giants and New York Jets, roughly 0.4 miles away.
    Another twist is that barring any oversight here, New Jersey will become the first state in which sports wagering is legal to host a regular season NFL game. While the Oakland and to-be Las Vegas Raiders have broken ground on their Nevada stadium, the Raiders will play at least one more season in California.

    For our younger and/or non-northeastern readers, MetLife Stadium was formerly Giants Stadium and briefly the New Meadowlands Stadium when it opened in 2010. Both the stadium and the Meadowlands Racetrack are part of The Meadowlands Sports Complex.
    As recently as December 2017, the NFL argued publicly and in the United States Supreme Court that sports wagering was a threat to the integrity of, and a scourge on their game. Meanwhile the league also held regular season contests in London, where there’s sports betting kiosks on nearly every street corner.
    The NFL has since “evolved” on sports betting, put simply. Will the Giants and Jets get the league’s blessing to allow advertising of or to promote the Meadowlands sportsbook at their games?
    [Also See: What Happens When Everyone Bets the Home Team?]
    Promotions or events would make a lot of sense, maybe informational booths during tailgating parties or game day giveaways. Settlemoir indicated that the Meadowlands is not ready to make any such announcements on that front.
    “Mr. Gural and the FanDuel and Betfair personnel management have a great relationship with the guys at the stadium,” he said. “And they’re currently working with the Jets and Giants ownership, and we’ll have to see how that goes, and where we go from here.”

    First of all, Meadowlands/FanDuel-branded mobile sports wagering is in works. As of July 11, as permitted by the enabling legislation signed by Governor Phil Murphy, any licensed operator may allow mobile betting. So far, none are prepared to do so, which may just mean that the Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) has not signed off on their software.
    “We’re looking to try to roll that out by football season,” Settlemoir said.
    Once it’s live, anyone located in the state — even temporarily, hey New Yorkers — will be able to establish an account deposit remotely via the app or online, based on our understanding of New Jersey’s bill.
    And the FanDuel physical sportsbook space will expand as well.
    “We’re still working on the exact square footage but it will have a much larger footprint by NFL season,” Hennessy explained. “We have plans for 65 television screens and 15 sports betting stations, making the retail location the ideal place to place bets for the upcoming NFL season and for the MLB playoffs. “
    It’s not all about sports betting at the Meadowlands, though. They recognize sports betting as a distinct opportunity, but also one to introduce a new and probably younger crowd to harness or horse racing.
    As for numbers, the facility is expecting big crowd on a Saturday that coincides with Meadowlands Pace Night — one of the biggest racing nights on the calendar, which Settlemoir says typically draws about 12,000-15,000 visitors.
    “Hopefully the sportsbook will be able to help the horse racing side as well, exposing a completely different demographic,” he said. “People that bet sports coming here and being able to see horse racing, and hopefully we’ll see some crossover.”
