I mean, there is a sportsbook coming to Wrigley where you know what 90% of the action is going to be and can adjust the lines accordingly. And they’re talking about partnering with Barstool, an entity with its cult following who tells its followers what to bet on at its own book and then takes in the money when the picks “fail.”

Not to mention Bally Sports, whose stated goal is to bring an interactive gambling experience to broadcasts.
