One of the great American traditions at this time of year is setting aside a few hours each week to watch our favorite college and pro sports football teams. It is a good time for family bonding, to take a rest from the stresses of daily life, and simply to unwind from a hectic work week. The proliferation and ease of sports wagering, however, encourages many to bet on the games. Unfortunately, young and old alike, may wager money they can ill afford to lose. It is estimated that a staggering 125 billion dollars has been wagered by U.S. citizens in the last four years. By all means, enjoy the games and the food and the friendship, but while the allure of a quick profit may be enticing, don’t bet on it.
