LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas oddsmakers had argued for years that sports betting is easier to monitor where it’s legal and regulated.

The NFL’s relationship with the city began to thaw when league owners started to seriously consider the Raiders’ proposed move to Las Vegas from Oakland. They voted in March 2017 to approve the relocation.
