Betting on Golf will be the next big thing, say experts.

In fact, ratings for most professional sports games have been dropping.  A recent Supreme Court ruling that permits sports betting nationwide could not have come at a better time.

“You’re 19 times more likely to watch an event if you’re betting on it,” George Pyne, founder and CEO of investment firm Bruin Sports Capital, said at Fortune’s Brainstorm Reinvent conference in Chicago on Monday. “So the engagement of those people that are going to be gambling is going to increase avidity.”
