Jake Arrieta Daily Fantasy MLB Salary and Value Report June 27

Jake Arrieta is certainly a starting pitcher to consider for Monday’s play against Cincinnati despite the high price tag of $12800 (which is down $700 from June 11).

The Cubs and Arrieta are a huge -250 favorite, and that’s on the road against the struggling Reds.

Two strong factors come into play here.

First, an ace coming off a loss always deserves consideration, especially when facing a poor team like the Reds.

Nevada Regulators Approve New Gambling Platform for Daily Fantasy Sports Contests

LAS VEGAS (Associated Press) — A new gambling platform approved by Nevada regulators Thursday will further blur the lines between traditional sports betting and fantasy sports contests, an industry that insists its games are not gambling in the face of legal challenges across the country.

The Nevada Gaming Commission gave a gambling license to Henderson-based US Fantasy, calling it a fair model as daily fantasy sports businesses such as DraftKings and FanDuel stand accused in several states of operating as illegal, unregulated betting systems.

Illinois House Committee Approves Bill Allowing DraftKings, FanDuel

Illinois lawmakers are considering a bill that would legalize and tax online Fantasy Sports betting. 

An Illinois House Committee has approved a bill which would allow websites like FanDuel and DraftKings to legally operate despite objections of the Illinois Gaming board, the gambling industry, and some state lawmakers.

The measure would ban company employees as well as those under the age of 21 from playing Daily Fantasy Sports games for real cash.

Not everybody was on board with the legislation.
