Louisiana bans college player prop bets

More than thirty states have already banned player prop bets, or wagers on the individual performance of college athletes, and Louisiana has followed as well.

In a bulletin, the Louisiana Gaming Control Board declared the ban. It is scheduled to take effect on the first of August of this year. After this new law goes into effect, it will be illegal to wager on the performance or results of any specific college athlete.  Only proposition wagers that are reliant on the team’s overall performance in college will be accepted.

LGCB Chair Ronnie Johns urged sports betting companies to follow the new rules, even though he acknowledged that this change might cause difficulties for them. The NCAA has been pushing for these modifications, claiming that these wagers may enhance harassment of student-athletes and increase the possibility of problems with game integrity, such as players accepting bribes to affect the result of games. The LGCB that approved this proposal.

Following Ohio, Maryland, and Vermont, which have also outlawed college player props, comes Louisiana. Some states, like Kansas, Michigan, and Wyoming, still allow prop bets on college players in spite of these reservations. Still, these wagers make only a small portion of all the wagers that oddsmakers take in. For instance, in Ohio, just over one percent of the total money gambled lawfully through the state’s sportsbooks came from props of college players.
