I would have to disagree and agree with both sides, and say that I feel like sports gambling is definately a skill based activity, and for SOME persons I don't think it's really gambling at all. Where I am from they have legalized horse racing and I even used to work at an establishment that facilitated bets on the races, and the sports enthusiasts that would bet had a lot of knowledge (usually) about what they were betting on. The only time i feel like it may be gambling is when someone has no knowledge. For example, i am in the fantasy league promotion but i have no idea who i am even betting on and no prior knowledge of the sport or teams lol I am gambling. But other poeple in the group knew going into it which teams to bet on because they know of the sport and didn't pick a random team that sounded kind of familiar ha. That's my opinion.
