When it comes to sports betting in the USA, the NFL has fought to prevent it from becoming a reality despite the inevitable boost in income that would be derived.  The league has also come after its own players for partaking in activities having any semblance of gambling (think Tony Romo’s Fantasy Sports convention slated to be held in Vegas the NFL quashed last year)

So the league could be none too happy with revelations that Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. allegedly was loaned $10,000 at a blackjack table by a high stakes player.  That individual, known as Robert Gorodetsky, also reportedly is in possession of a text from Beckham expressing an interest in laying $20,000 on a baseball game.

The league’s gambling policy prohibits the placement of wagers on a wide variety of sporting events, including baseball.

Beckham, through his agent, Zeke Sandhu, denied the contention. 

“We do not know Robert nor can we confirm any of his statements,” Sandhu told USA Today. “We have confirmed with Odell that he has never placed any bets on any professional sports games. We can assure you that he has and will always continue to comply with all of the NFL’s rules and regulations regarding gambling activities.”

Though Gorodetsky posted a picture of himself along side Beckham in a hotel hallway, this is hardly proof that the two individuals know one another.
