States begin authorizing sports bets on the XFL

** While many sports fans are picking NFL playoff teams to bet on, or marshaling their cash for the Super Bowl, yet another opportunity to wager on football is right around the corner: the XFL.

Several states have already authorized bets on the second incarnation of the upstart football league, which begins its season in February, shortly after the NFL season concludes with the Super Bowl. Others are considering doing so, and bookmakers say they have requested that regulators add the league to lists of approved betting events. **

Sports gambling - even in small dollars - helps generate interest and its now starting to really pick up over even 1 yr ago. The wait until 2020 should be fortuitous for the XFL.

The interesting part of the article is how Delaware is hesitant because of the XFL’s rules. I think even some bettors are going to be confused.

Not sure how to set over/unders etc It’s like they want to see it play out first.

NJ needs to approve - that would be a big jump in betting with the Guardians.... PA has it but the Philly area thinking is parochial/provincial that they really don't talk much out of town sports. Of course betting opens doors.
