    Absolutely. Bring it in. People are gambling anyway with bookies.

    Just legalize it. Over 50% of viewers of Monday night football have 'action' on the game [I got that from a publication but I can't remember which one.]

    if you want to gamble, you should be able to gamble. It is your money; unless you are on public assistance, in which case, its my money.

    There's always the problem with this form of income for a state. It depends on people having jobs and for the most part is taking money from the poor.

    Why do you want to win a lottery? So I can afford to Gamble.

    Delaware already tried sports betting in 1976, and it fizzled....

    As of yesterday afternoon, Delaware has legalized betting/gambling on sports.
    The Governor has been talking to the head of the NFL and is prepared for a potential legal battle, but the law has been passed.

    An interesting turn of events for the state.
