Inside the Lines
Parlays and Teasers and Point Spreads, oh my!
A Nickel, a Dime? Sports books and Bookies and Organized Crime.
JFK, RFK, Christie and more. RICO, SCOTUS and PASPA no more.
Football. Basketball. Baseball. Hockey. The NCAA!!
Yes, Inside the Lines is here to de-mystify the incredibly mysterious and most often misunderstood World of Sports Betting.
Since the first sporting event was conducted, there was no doubt betting on the outcome. And as sports grew in popularity, so, too, did betting…Gambling.
So much so that this Sports Betting World took on all corners: from Jimmy “The Greek” Snyder, Las Vegas and New Jersey to ineffective laws, hard-hitting legislation that caused numerous battles between the Good and the Bad.
It's a popular world, this Sports Betting World; one that fans know about an are interested in. Yet, despite the popularity and interest, many sports fans are afraid to enter into it due to its mysterious procedures and language.
Well, Inside the Lines deems to clear it all up, virtue of Author Tom DeNigris personal journey through the world. Find out how this world all got started; who started it and where and how; who still stars in it; how our government and leagues fought against only to join it; how the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) opened the doors for all to enter in a very legal way.
Read about the Laws, the battles, understand the jargon (Nickles and Dimes, Sharps and Squares, Money Lines, Totals et al), and a gentleman named Boxcar who makes a living betting on sporting events.
Inside the Lines, a journey into The Who, What, When, Where, and How of the Sports Betting World.
