Any word on what changes, if any, will be made at the Sports books? Will a betting ban be in place for all of the LV teams matches, or only when they are home?

Betting ban on UNLV games was lifted almost 20 years ago. Can't see anything like that ever again for a pro team. Only possible way will be if any casino ever takes an ownership position, those specific places may not have the games on the board

I will try to catch a game in Vegas at some point. It is the only city that I visit regularly with (when it happens) an NHL team. Not much hockey in Houston...
