Heisman odds not likely coming to Nevada sportsbooks

The Nevada Gaming Control has returned applications from two sportsbooks, who were hoping to offer betting on the Heisman Trophy this fall.

Teresa Zellhoefer, deputy chief of the enforcement division of Gaming Control, said Wednesday that the applications were returned with a request for confirmation from the Heisman Trophy committee on how the votes are tabulated. It is the sportsbooks’ responsibility to open communication with the Heisman committee. Odds on the stuffy Heisman committee returning calls from a Vegas sportsbooks seem slim.

Nevada sportsbooks are not allowed to offer wagering on non-sporting events unless Gaming Control can be satisfied of the legitimacy of the voting process.
