    2011 NFL Lockout / Nevada gaming industry

    losing the NFL would be a huge blow to the gaming industry.If no NFL games are played in 2011 the books could lose $850 million. The Super Bowl alone brings in $80 to $95 million.Director of Lucky sports books Jimmy Vacaro is not optimistic.Jimmy doesn't see the season opening on time"Its impact would be more critical then the stoppage in baseball or basketball.This from the vice president of American Wagering Inc "it would be devastating to us and the entire industry"
    Las Vegas Hilton Sports book director Jay Kornagy said this would be the worst case possible for the books.
    He estimated 50% of the Sports book handle is from Football,and half of that is the NFL.

    850 million x 10 juice = 8.5 billion

    Some college games will be switched to Sunday and Monday, but sportsbooks will take a major beating if the NFL shuts down.

    I know there are a lot of people who only bet on NFL and refuse to touch any other sport.

    This, also football bets are larger than basketball or baseball

    The NFL will not be shutdown this year, though the teams may not be as polished as they should be.

    And even they do lose a bit of the rec gambler market - the hardcore degens are going to find a way to get money down on College Football/NBA/NHL hell even the UFL.

    This reminds me of a story I read on another board about some guy who was working in an offshore on Sep 11, 2001. Despite the fact that no games were held that night - they still had degens ringing in and betting futures just to get a fix.

    Even if the NFL doesn't play this year, those books and casinos will never be hurt over this. But they will play on time.
