NCAA President Charlie Baker said that he is concerned with the effects of prop betting on college sports and is asking for regulatory changes.
Baker said that prop bets, which allow bettors to predict whether a player will make more or less than a certain number of points, rebounds, assists, or any other statistic, should not be available for college sports. Despite that, many states with legal sports betting have college prop bets available at online sportsbooks.
The NCAA Pres. said that he is not ignorant of the extra funding and attention that sports betting has brought the NCAA, but prop betting should be eradicated to preserve the integrity of college sports.
