NFL Bettors Hoping Owners And Players Reach An Agreement Soon
The NFL is aware of the possibility that the league will lose millions of dollars should the owners lockout spill into the season, even the preseason games. That is why the players and owners are working diligently on a new collective bargaining agreement.On the outside, it is the fans, mainly the gambling fans, that will be watching closely the next couple of weeks. If a deal is not struck by around Independence Day, preseason games would be compromised. While gamblers do not place a big emphasis on the preseason, it is a time when they start considering their betting strategy.In past years, Las Vegas sports books have made hundreds of millions of dollars each season on the NFL. The sports books are part of a Las Vegas gaming industry that has seen revenue drop consistently in double digits for many months over the past several years.The economic recession caused a sharp decrease in Las Vegas visitors, and it was only the past couple of months when gamblers started to return to Sin City. With the World Series of Poker helping the casinos and sports books survive the summer, it is the NFL that is being counted on to carry the Fall.Today, sources revealed the latest offers on the table from the owners. It would give the players around forty-eight percent of the total revenue of the league. That is a sharp decrease from the last collective bargaining agreement, and it is a number that many analysts believe the players will turn away.Part of the proposal would include a sixteen week Thursday nigh schedule. The Thursday night games became popular among bettors after the NFL started to play games mid-week, and that popularity has left owners wanting more. The television deal associated with the sixteen game Thursday schedule would make up for some of the revenue that would be lost at the negotiating table.
