As Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told Yahoo Finance this week, “Betting and wagering has been an integral part of the NFL for a long time…The viewership is where our numbers will increase. People will stay longer. That value is how our sport will benefit from gaming. I dare say that gaming will increase the value of television, of presenting our games, I dare say it will go up 50% because of the gaming concentration.”
