Sports Betting: Then and Now 6

Posted on April 16, 2019 by Aaron Beallor

In the course of less than a year, the world of sports betting in the USA has changed exponentially. Where once, betting on sports on websites like Caesars Casino and sports was illegal, now across the USA, more and more states are allowing people to wager on their favorite teams. Today, we’re looking at sports betting then and now, to see just how far things have come…

Then:

Before last May, sports betting was outlawed across the USA as a result of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) of 1992, a federal act which saw sports betting outlawed for almost two decades. This law was introduced in a bid to preserve the integrity of the sport. Nevada was an exception to that rule, as sports betting laws were already in place. Additionally, sports betting was possible in Delaware, Montana, Nevada and Oregon, where they had pre-existing sports betting frameworks and sports lotteries already in place. Despite the ban, it is estimated that around $150 billion was spent in illegal wagers on the Black Market every year in the United States on both professional and amateur sports betting. That’s more than the GDP of Nebraska! Back then, if you wanted to place a legal wager on the Super Bowl or March Madness, you’d have to hop on a flight to Las Vegas…or risk the consequences of placing a bet with an illegal bookie.

      Rusty Staub

      The Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month is a former major league baseball player who came into the game as a teenager and stayed until he was in his 40s. In between, Rusty Staub put up a solid career that was primarily spent on expansion or rebuilding teams.

      Originally signed by the Colt .45s at age 17, he made his major league debut as a 19-year old rookie and became only the second player in the modern era to play in more than 150 games as a teenager.

      Though he hit only .224 splitting time between first base and rightfield, Staub did start building a foundation that would turn him into an All-Star by 1967 when he finished fifth in the league with a .333 batting average.
