Fantasy Sports Leagues Embrace the NFL, But Shun College Football

Company Executives Tell Gambling911 Why That’s So And Why It’s Changing

When it comes to legal sports wagering at Las Vegas sportsbooks, more money is wagered on pro football than any other sport.

The NFL is No. 1 for the books and always has been.

The second most popular sport to bet on at the Vegas books is college football, not surprising considering the overall popularity nationally of the game of football.

So why hasn't this affection for NCAA football translated to fantasy sports the way NFL football has?

Defensed reigned here so there weren’t a whole lot of opportunities to boost an individual’s stats in that one.  Will Saturday’s game be any different?
