New Hampshire Becomes Sixth State To Legalize Sports Betting

New Hampshire legalizes sports betting and becomes the sixth state to do so this year alone. Within a year, a number of states have adopted laws to bring the legal sports betting among the masses. The Supreme Court ruling of last year has confined all the betting activities within Nevada region. This has prompted states to come with legislation to allow gamblers to place their bets both online and in-person at the approved gaming sites.

Online and in-person sports betting get legalized with this new law, and it also offers remote registration for the new entrants. A qualified casino or operator will be able to get as many as 15 licenses (five for retail sports betting and 10 for online sports betting). A competitive bidding process has been laid down for qualified operators to bid through at the end of this year. New Hampshire state has also brought some restrictions pertaining to the in-play wagers and in-state collegiate betting. This new law also prohibits punters from betting on the New Hampshire college teams. There is no specific date for the launch of the legal sports betting activities, but it is likely to be done in 2020.

The legislation to authorize the sports betting in the state is seen in the positive light. The state regulators are confident of getting more operators like maxbet opt for the licenses and popularize the right and just means to bet for sports online and offline. It is also expected to help enhance the falling sports betting revenue in the state in the upcoming months.

New Hampshire is also working towards increasing the footprint of the offline betting sites which can be in the form of the restaurants or any other kind of entertainment facility. The state will also be getting in touch with the digital operator for licenses in order to bring legal betting games but within the state jurisdiction.

Before the introduction of this new law, the sports betting industry was running underground. New Hampshire will be feeding as much $10 million within next year to boost the legal sports betting within the state. These efforts will certainly help in attracting more players from cross-border states in the upcoming months. Interstate competition and competitive legal sports betting will be beneficial for New Hampshire in the long by generating huge revenues for the local businesses.

Aaron Rodgers Signs $150m Contract as Green Bay Packers Retain Star Quarterback

If you are a Green Bay Packers fan, then the news that Aaron Rodgers has pledged himself to the Lambeau Field franchise for another three years will be music to your ears. The veteran quarterback has completed back-to-back NFL MVP award-winning seasons, and many may have feared that another offseason filled with ‘will-he, won’t he’ rumors were on the cards, but that’s now been neatly avoided.

38-year-old Rodgers has put pen to paper on a deal that will net him a massive $150m and makes him the best-paid player in the league. His first year will amount to $41m, the second is worth $59, and his third will work out at $49m. That may seem like a hefty sum, but Rodgers reportedly actually turned down a higher amount, knowing that doing so would free up money to improve the deals of other players (and possible newcomers to the Packers ranks).

The retention of Rodgers will, of course, offer a massive boost to Matt LaFleur’s team’s push for a Super Bowl title, and if you take a look at any odds comparison site, you’ll see that Green Bay are now at around the (+1100) mark, meaning that only the Buffalo Bills, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are ahead of them in the betting.

Rodgers has been in superb form over the past few seasons, showing that age hasn’t caught up with him, and there is certainly plenty more left in the tank. Next season will be his 18th with the Packers, and he has led his team to the playoffs in each of the past three campaigns. 

During that period, the Packers have a 39-6 record in regular-season action, which is a frightening level of consistency, and keeping such a hugely talented player at the team is something that has been widely applauded.

Green Bay general manager Brian Gutekunst remarked;

“We are very pleased to be able to come to an agreement with Aaron that keeps him in Green Bay,”

“His play on the field and leadership in our locker room remain vital in our pursuit of another Super Bowl title. The agreement also allows us to maintain and enhance what we feel is already a very competitive roster.”

The new deal for Rodgers has left back-up QB Jordan Love considering his options, and one imagines he may look to leave Green Bay in order to find game time elsewhere. 

On that point, comments from LaFleur suggest that they may not stand in his way, should he indeed look to find a new team;

“Jordan’s come a long way,” 

“I still think, with any young player that hasn’t gotten maybe the experience up to this point, there’s still a lot of room for growth. So I think it’s going to be an important offseason, that when he does come back, it’s making sure that his footwork is sharp, that he’s on the details of what we’re trying to accomplish on each and every play and all the concepts, really a mastery of the offense, and just the command that he has. I know he takes that to heart, and he takes it very personally, and he’ll do whatever he can to be his best.”

One thing is for sure. Trying to force your way from behind the shadow of such an accomplished player, such as Aaron Rodgers, isn’t something that can be easily achieved. Hence the likely need to move on rather than sit on the sidelines for another three years.
