It seems that the Lottery mandates operators to keep 10% of handle in effort to ensure more revenue for state.

This means less attractive lines.  Serious sports bettors probably won't stick around too long.

Jill R. Dorson of Sports Handle surmises:

In essence, the cap may well accomplish exactly the opposite of what lawmaker and operators alike want from legal sports betting — allow the black market to thrive, and also depress legal sports betting participation, ultimately reducing the operator taxable revenue tabbed to benefit in-state education funds.

Operators will be penalized should they fail to meet the 10% cap, to the tune of $25,000 fines no less.

This hasn't stopped operators from applying for licenses. To date, four operators and approximately 20 vendors and suppliers have done so.

Tennessee is unique in that the state does not offer any land-based casinos.  Sports betting will all take place via the Internet.

The state is hoping to have wagering go live by November 1.
