How Legalized Sports Gambling Affects the National Hockey League

A lot has happened in the world of legalized sports betting in just the last few months. Starting with its landmark deal with the NBA in July, MGM has been successfully negotiating to become the official bookmaker for multiple major US sports associations. 

With the NHL playoffs underway, legalized sports gambling in places like East Rutherford, NJ is gaining popularity. How did we get to this point? Here’s a review of significant events.

The data now available to the NHL’s gambling partners makes it possible to bet on aspects previously unheard of in the betting universe: which player will skate at a higher average speed, what distance a particular player will skate, etc. — the list is virtually endless. 

Now that the NHL playoffs have commenced, there are even more opportunities for problem gamblers
