FILE - In this June 5, 2018, file photo, John Celatka displays a pair of receipts for bets he placed on an MLB baseball game and an NBA basketball game, inside the Race and Sports Book at Dover Downs Hotel and Casino in Dover, Del.

Whether that idea comes to fruition will depend on laws in the states where Wizards games are shown on the regional network NBC Sports Washington. But the concept shows how legal sports betting continues to change the way sports are presented to the public. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky, File)
