Biggest bunch of horse sh.it around that they don't promote gambling.  They promote their fantasy football also, that's nothing but enticement for gambling and usually directly involves gambling.  Without gambling, NFL would be 25% of what it is.  Everyone knows it but NFL doesn't want to admit it.

I love how on the scroll on the bottom of the screen - when they show the line and total - it says "Professional Football Championship".

They are very careful not to use "Super Bowl" when showing the line.

So dumb.  The rest of the world laughs at us.

Sports, and especially NFL, wouldn't be what they are in popularity without gambling.

What about Mike and Mike's stone cold lead pipe locks? They pick games against the spread.

 When you say "us" are you refering to Equatorial Guinea? I'm from the USA and we get laughed at also...
