All Bets Are Off On ‘Survivor’

Bradley said that bets taken from those alleged to be with CBS skewed the odds significantly on “Survivor” contestants.

The players’ current bets on “Survivor: Amazon” have been canceled and their money refunded, Bradley said. He declined further comment on the allegations, or on any action CBS might take.. The players in question opened accounts with BoDog before “Survivor: Marquesas,” the fourth show, and bet only on the show and no other events.

BoDog requires that bettors must not have knowledge of an event’s outcome. The biggest payoff, $8,000, came on a $1,000 bet placed on the fifth “Survivor” at 8-to-1 odds.

“We’re pretty sure this is the case,” Bradley said. The suspicion is they had insider knowledge, he said.

Callers to the offices were told that wagers were no longer being accepted on “Survivor.”

“Throughout the history of ‘Survivor,’ many have believed they knew the outcome of the show,” Ender said. “Some have been right, many have been wrong.”

Betting on events other than sports or racing is banned in Las Vegas sportsbooks, a spokeswoman for the Nevada Gaming Control Board said Thursday. Asked if BoDog might consider legal action, he replied: “It’s not something we’d want to pursue, as a matter of precedent.”

At least two players have been identified as CBS employees and other names may be connected to the network or may be aliases, Bradley said.

He wasn’t aware of any other possible legal sanctions.

The show narrows the field to two finalists in filmed competitions.

Odds will be offered on the seventh “Survivor” but all bettors will be carefully monitored, BoDog President Rob Gillespie said in a statement.

An online sportsbook said it has dropped betting on CBS’ “Survivor” after allegedly finding that network employees were wagering – and winning – on the hit reality show.

The Costa Rica-based found at least two CBS employees betting on the show’s outcome, said BoDog spokesman Lance Bradley. Most offshore sportsbooks accept such alternative bets, said BoDog’s Bradley.

“Only ‘The X-Files’ has more conspiracy theories than ‘Survivor,’” CBS spokesman Chris Ender said. One person was said by BoDog to work in a “production role” for CBS.

For the current “Survivor,” the bets in question affected the odds for contestants Jenna Morasca of Pittsburgh, Pa., and Matthew Von Ertfelda of Washington, D.C.

They wagered correctly on who would be the final two contestants in both the fourth and fifth editions of “Survivor,” Bradley said

Legal U.S. sports betting could spread if New Jersey has its way | Reuters

The leagues said that violated a 1992 federal law that banned the activity in all but four states – particularly Nevada – where it was already allowed. In a November op-ed in The New York Times, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver urged Congress to adopt a federal framework to allow betting on professional sports, arguing that a state-by-state spread of measures like New Jersey’s would be bad public policy.

(Reporting by Hilary Russ; Editing by Frances Kerry)

Humphrey and others called the leagues “hypocrites” for blocking sports betting while actively investing in fantasy sports companies.

New Jersey lost the case, but it tried again last year with new legislation that attempts an end-run around the federal ban – which prohibits states from authorizing, sponsoring, operating or licensing the practice – by essentially removing state control and deregulating sports wagering at casinos and racetracks.

“Our long-standing position against the proliferation of gambling on NFL games remains,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in an email.

Americans bet $3.8 billion illegally on this year’s Super Bowl game, compared to approximately $100 million of legal bets on the event annually, according to American Gaming Association estimates.


Globally, the market is at least $1 trillion, 90 percent of it conducted illegally, said Patrick Jay, who oversaw Asia’s largest regulated sportsbook as director of trading at the Hong Kong Jockey Club. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

The state may have only one major league franchise bearing its name: the New Jersey Devils NHL hockey team. Betting also threatens the integrity of sports games by opening the door to price fixing, the leagues argued.

A decision is expected any day from the U.S.

If legal sports betting spread, New Jersey could eventually grab about $10 billion of a national market that could be as much as $400 billion, said Dennis Drazin, an advisor to two parties involved in New Jersey’s Monmouth Park Racetrack, where on Aug. Whichever side loses will almost certainly appeal.

“A New Jersey win will have immediate, far-reaching implications beyond its borders,” said Daniel Wallach, a Florida sports and gambling attorney who has followed the case closely.

But New Jersey faces long odds, according to some analysts. 2 American Pharoah won his first race since taking the Triple Crown.

Those venues would then be free to oversee their own sportsbooks under the latest bill, which the sports leagues also tried to block in court. It could be as big as $3 trillion, nearly all of it illegal, he estimated.

The NCAA, NFL, NBA and other leagues sued after New Jersey lawmakers legalized sports betting in 2012. “It will prompt swift action by other states.”

“It’s going to go down in flames,” said Chuck Humphrey, lawyer and author of the website They won that case as well, and New Jersey appealed.

The tide may be turning, however. subsidiary of Britain’s William Hill PLC. sports betting, resisted by professional leagues since they won a federal ban nearly a quarter century ago, could begin spreading around the country if the state of New Jersey prevails in a pending federal court case..

So far, the NBA is the sole league calling for federal authorization.

The NCAA said in a statement that “the spread of legalized sports wagering is a threat to student-athlete well-being and the integrity of athletic competition.”

“It would be a huge economic boost to Monmouth Park and New Jersey and Atlantic City casinos,” Drazin said.

“There is an obvious appetite among sports fans for a safe and legal way to wager on professional sporting events,” he wrote.

By Hilary Russ


Major League Baseball declined to comment. The NHL did not reply to a request for comment.

The park has already spent $1 million to outfit a sportsbook room through the largest North American sports betting operator, the U.S. But with an eroded casino industry and sluggish state economy, New Jersey has been pushing for sports betting for several years and carrying the ball in the legal battle while other states wait and watch.

Other states – especially Pennsylvania and Delaware, which are also in the Third Circuit – might immediately follow New Jersey’s lead if it won and begin pushing for broader sports betting, Wallach said.
