The Rivers Casino and Resort in Schenectady have opened their Sports book and lounge and I for one am THRILLED! I have always enjoyed adding a little extra interest in my sporting events. I love the Saratoga Race Course and Fantasy sports because I can wager and add a little more fun. Now that sports betting is legal here in New York I made the bets I normally had to hope my friends would make for me when they visited Las Vegas.

I started with some "Futures" bets. I took the New York Yankees to win the World Series, The Oakland Raiders to Super Bowl LIV and Golfer Brooks Koepka to win the Open Championship this weekend. Some of these odds are longer than others but I'm excited for all three. I basically have a chance to $875 for only $30 wagered.
