The Problem

Gambling on sporting events is against the law.  It is, however, very common.  In most cases, passionate fans simply make small wagers to make the games more exciting (such as during college basketball’s “March Madness’).  In some cases, much more money is at stake.  Should gambling on sports be legalized so that it can become a way for fans to interact with the game?  What are the issues involved?

Care to Make a Wager?

Students will review the pros and cons of sports gambling, and then decide whether it is a good idea or not.
