The contention that online sports gambling is necessary to help assure the integrity of the games is bullshit.
With >98% of the sports gambling market being illicit “the integrity of the games will always be in question,” regardless of what the <2% regulated market does.
Furthermore, even if 100% of the sports gambling market was monitored and regulated, which can never happen, there still would be no assurance that all games would be played with integrity.
Conclusion: “The integrity of the games will always be in question.”
