With the first professional Vegas team wrapping up their season, fans could not be happier, but the Casinos are in a tough spot. The Las Vegas Golden Knights were a expansion team, and started at the year with the prediction on being in dead last. No team has ever been better than .500 in their first year in the league, but the Knights hold a 1-0 lead in the Stanley cup.
Vegas's problem, they started the odds out at 500 to 1, granted when people started taking it, the odds went down, but to 200 to 1. Vegas is expected to lose millions if the Knights win, regardless of them being the home town. Also states should look at this before they start opening sports betting to collect more taxes, it is not a set profit margin, as state lotto is. They could lose money, and for that reason I would like my government to stay out of it. But on the other note, I have a friend who put down 20 with 500 to 1 and he has been a emotional wreck lately.
