Arizona Legal Sports Betting to become available in 2020?

Ken Edwards faceBy: Ken Edwards
Sports betting is still not a reality for fans and sports bettors in the state of Arizona.

In a classic political good-cop-bad-cop dam-busting maneuver, one bill is identical to the 2019 bill (bad cop) while the other is a totally fresh bill (good cop) that appears likely to be Arizona’s opportunity to secure legal sports betting in 2020.
