Cheryl Reeve, Maya Moore good with Supreme Court decision on sports betting

Lynx head coach Cheryl Reeve

Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve is OK with the Supreme Court’s decision to allow states to legalize sports betting.

“Yeah, I love the idea,’’ she said. “I don’t know all the ins and outs. But on the surface, when I think about sports betting …. I think maybe the casual fan might grow a little more interested and maybe knowledge would increase as a result of that. Because you’re not going to put your money out there unless you know exactly what you’re talking about.

"And so I think that creates greater engagement. I think it’s positive. Obviously there are people that might be against it. I think it is, overall, a positive thing.’’

Maya Moore was fine with the decision, too.

“I’m sure it will benefit the sport industry,’’ she said. “Personally, I don’t necessarily pay a ton of attention to that form of entertainment. Obviously it’s a huge industry. But it will, for sure, impact pro sports in a positive way, as far as people getting involved. It’s another way for people to connect.’’
