Under the current rule, no Nevada casino owning any percentage of a professional sports team is allowed to accept bets on that team in their sports book. For example the Palms Casino cannot take bets on the Sacramento Kings basketball team, because they own the team. Nevada sports books last year took in $581,800,000 in basketball bets. This week’s Reader Poll asks . . . Do you think a casino should be allowed to accept wagers on a game’s outcome if they retain any percentage of ownership in a team?   What is your Opinion? Why or Why not?

I see no harm in a casino accepting bets on a professional team they own, I just want to know how they bet their own money.hahaha.  Joyce B.  NYC

*  I don't think it's a problem. The line is based on the odds and the ownership has nothing to do with the line. If a line is too wide or small based on a casino's ownership, the book won't flourish. The market will control which book makes money and which doesn't. Not who owns the team.  Rich Zion

*  They should not be able to bet on their own team simply because they can have the game fixed. Its been done before and it can be done again. Terry Munroe  Toronto ON Canada

*  Yes they should be allowed to take bets. Accepting a bet is not in any way going to change the outcome.  Wilbert Kraemer  East Carondelet, IL

 No they should not. it's not etheical.  lois withrow
