The Aaron Torres Sports Podcast E45: Todd Fuhrman on Sports Gambling

May 15, 2018

It’s one of biggest pieces of news to hit the sporting world this year – the Supreme Court will now allow sports gambling in every state. So what does it mean? On the latest episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, Aaron takes a deep dive with former Caesars Palace bookmaker and gambling insider Todd Furhman. But first, Aaron is joined by Nick Coffey where they discuss the following:

Monday’s Gambling Announcement: Why Monday’s news isn’t exactly what it seems, and why it doesn’t mean that you’ll be able to bet on games in your state immediately. Also, Nick questions why some are so convinced that state-by-state gambling is bad news.

NBA Playoffs: With a slow time in the college hoops world, the guys discuss a little NBA Playoffs. Are the Warriors too good for the rest of the NBA? And is Draymond Green the least likable athlete of the last couple decades? Aaron and Nick try to find someone more hate-able than Draymond.

College Hoops News and Notes: What to make of Sacha Killeya-Jones’ move to NC State and did we learn anything from Pat Forde’s interview with Chris Mack?

Next up, Vegas Insider Todd Furhman joins the show to break down Monday’s ruling. He and Aaron discuss:

Misconceptions About the Supreme Court Ruling: Why it won’t be as easy to gamble as you think and why it really will be decided state-to-state. Also, if you’re a business owner, how do you get sports gambling in your establishment?

Why so much still has to be sorted out: How online gambling will be legislated on a state-by-state basis, and why placing bets isn’t as easy as simply driving to whatever state allows legalized gambling. Also, why you might be able to bet on certain sports some places but not others.

What are the next steps? When will gambling come to states besides Nevada? When will it come to your state?
