    Thanks to a recommendation by the Gaming Control Board, the Nevada Gaming Commission has recently approved sports books to accept bets on Olympic athletic events. This will mean that bookmakers can place betting lines on events sanctioned by the International Olympic Committee, though the Control Board has the power to remove any event from betting activity.

    This doesn't really surprise me since you can bet on so many other sporting events and other things that aren't even sports. But it does seem kind of yucky to place bets on something that is supposed to be positive. But then again, there are lot of bribes to out there to make the games happen, so maybe Las Vegas is on to something!
