Dallas Cowboy quarterback Dak Prescott is the latest professional athlete to warn of the dangers of gambling amid the rise of legal sports betting.
“I get when fans are upset. I get it,” Prescott said two days after a 33-10 win over the Carolina Panthers. “But then there are other cases… [when you] have to remember, he must’ve had his whole rent on that one. Once again, I give him grace, and I understand and say ‘Stop gambling.”
38 states (76%) have already legalized sports betting. The proliferating market has introduced many fans to an entirely new world, one that is only going to grow in the coming years.
