To have a good idea of what widespread legalized sports betting would look like, see Ontario ProLine and Delaware Sports Lottery.

Heavy taxation and regulation will mean that bets will be limited to NFL parlays with lousy odds. There is also the possibility of an inter-state progressive lottery during the NFL season.

I expect William Hill to be at the forefront in any sports betting legislation. FanDuel also has a chance if they can somehow launch a daily fantasy lottery.

I'm good with the current system of dealing with shady characters on credit

I don't understand your rationale for that prognostication. Why would it not be more like Vegas (or offshore) sportsbooks everywhere?

Sportsbooks require a lot more infrastructure than lotteries. In addition the margins are thinner and are more difficult to regulate.

Also, lottery-style games are more likely to draw casual bettors who bet small sums, which reduces the social cost.

I am seeing some things on how this is going to change sports media as well, as now the ESPNs of the world will be a lot more focused on the gambling aspect. Also expect to see new handicapping shows to be popping up on ESPN/FS1 fairly soon.
