By the middle of August, it will be legal in Iowa to make a wager on on a sporting event. I never thought our state would legalize gambling, but it's about to happen. No more bookies and envelopes at the bar, on August 15th sports betting in Iowa moves out of the back rooms and into the casinos!

So let me ask you, are you excited for legalized sports betting here in Iowa? I think it will be very successful for the the state and it should bring in some much needed revenue. I just hope I can pick a few winners!

The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission unanimously approved August 15th as the start date for legal sports gambling in Iowa. This should make the first Iowa football game on  August 31st a whole lot more interesting! I would take Iowa and lay the points...they win this one easily. (I hope)

Good luck and remember, bet with your head, not over it!
