EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Lisa Kerney once earned her living hosting “SportsCenter” on ESPN, making her a nightly fixture in the vast American conversation between sports fans and their favorite athletes, teams and leagues. Her latest endeavor, she believes, is just as all-American.
Every Saturday, Kerney slips an extremely different type of television program anchor: a sports satellite show from a temporary studio at Meadowlands Racetrack. Instead of just reporting scores and news, Carney is now N.F.L. With the CNBC host stock price and P / E ratio, the differences between the point spread and the finance line.

In retail front, innovations have become more basic: how to bet in the sports camp; A show and cable show that explains the difference between parlay bets; And Nevada-based Tout Services - which has won the winner for decades for the price - which has suddenly redefined itself to media companies.
“If you have a way to make betting more fun, or to otherwise increase consumer investment in betting, the market needs you,” said Chris Grove, a managing director at Eilers & Krejcik Gaming, an independent research firm. "If there is a way to find ways to address pain points for your controlled sports products - learning curve, money dispute, you are sure that you are getting the price - you absolutely need the market."
