“The NCAA has longstanding rules prohibiting student-athletes and university administrators from wagering on sports or providing information to others who are associated with sports wagering,” Stacey Osburn, NCAA director of communications, told ESPN in an email.

While remaining opposed, the NCAA has taken steps designed to protect student-athletes and the integrity of the competitions in today’s environment.

“As part of its ongoing efforts to protect the integrity of competitions, the NCAA monitors sports wagering both domestically and in the global betting market. This includes pregame and in-game monitoring of regular and postseason competition, enhanced monitoring of officials and periodic risk assessments of all competition,” Osburn said.

Las Vegas has hosted conference tournaments since the late 1990s without any reported sports betting scandals.

“It wasn’t that long ago when people said, ‘Hey, would a sports team make it in Vegas?'” Scott Butera, president of Interactive Gaming at MGM Resorts International, told ESPN. “And you look at the [Vegas] Knights and the [Las Vegas] Raiders, and these repeat tournaments we have, the answer is a resounding ‘yes.'”

Everyone is gambling on these games, do we need reminders during the broadcast.  

We know the future of Live Sports will be fully integrated with betting info, just not yet. 

And probably not at the collegiate level.
