Murren (possibly accidentally) revealed the beginning of sports betting in New Jersey during the press conference announcing MGM's deal to be the official gambling partner of the National Basketball Association.

Elsewhere, during the press conference surrounding their groundbreaking partnership with the NBA, MGM Resorts International CEO Jim Murren casually dropped the bombshell that MGM expects to be accepting wagers from their mobile app within days.

"It's a day-to-day thing", the MGM spokesperson said when asked when the state's Division of Gaming Enforcement is expected to approve playMGM, the casino's sports betting app.

This is Florida State's lowest preseason ranking in the coaches' poll since they were 20th in Jimbo Fisher's first season (2010). The Seminoles and new coach Willie Taggart were No. 19 while UCF found the No. 23 spot following a flawless 13-0 season.

The DraftKings Sportsbook application was released Wednesday and entertained invite-only users while the app undergoes several days of testing. The Stars Group will bring its online and mobile-led betting expertise and experience as one of the world's largest and most licensed online betting and gaming companies to the burgeoning USA online sports betting market, while leveraging the company's well recognized brands, customer trust and loyalty, and established position in New Jersey's online gaming market. This week, it was announced that the casino was the first in the state to offer online sports betting via a partnership with DraftKings.

DraftKings partnered with Malta-based sports betting provider Kambi to help oversee oddsmaking, trading and risk management.

"I think the opportunity for innovation is just massive (with mobile)", Jason Robins, CEO of DraftKings, told ESPN. The Stars Group intends to draw upon its technology development, management, marketing, and sports book trading expertise to provide New Jersey customers with an innovative, compelling, and robust mobile-led sportsbook. The brand will now begin offering online and mobile sports betting with their BetStars brand. Its 64,000 square feet of technologically advanced meeting space includes 24 meeting and function rooms, most featuring natural light and ocean views, and a 13,000-square-foot ballroom. Shea will work out of a new 25-person office Hoboken, New Jersey. The app offers different kinds of betting, including live in-game bets, and it will allow players to exit a wager, or "Cash Out", if they change their minds.

With the DraftKings sports betting option, customers will only be able to place wagers while physically within the borders of New Jersey. MS allows mobile wagering but only on casino premises.
