Nebraska sports betting conversation pits legend Osborne vs. most everyone else – CDC Gaming …

Nebraska football legend Tom Osborne continued his crusade to keep gambling on college sports from becoming legal during a legislative hearing in Nebraska Monday, but he was speaking against some very vocal advocates. The General Affairs Committee heard testimony on a bevy of gaming-related bills, including some related to legal sports betting, but didn’t vote after a nearly four-hour hearing.

Sean Ostrow on behalf of DraftKings made a plea for statewide mobile wagering, saying that bettors don’t want to travel to place bets or to register for online/mobile wagering, while Osborne argued that “the conversation is about money, not about who gets hurt” in his plea to keep sports betting out of the gaming equation.
