Eyeing football start, Tennessee tweaking sports bet rules
10th March, 22:57NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Officials overseeing the roll-out of Tennessee's online-only sports betting program are offering changes to proposed rules over concerns from sportsbook operators and others. An advisory council for the program and representatives of the Tennessee Lottery hashed out details Tuesday on topics ranging from payout caps to parlay bet restrictions. The proposed changes come as Tennessee Lottery board chairwoman Susan Lanigan said officials are already pushing it if they want to get sports betting up and running for football season later this year. Legislative leaders have also raised concerns about proposed rules, prompting a previous delay on voting on them so officials could make adjustments. The law passed last spring.
