ATLANTIC CITY — Sports betting is all over the airwaves, billboards, train station ads and publications in the New York metropolitan area.

So they travel into New Jersey. By Wayne Parry. SENT: 891 words, photos.

FBN--ON FOOTBALL-HIDE YOUR EYES
— To say the Jets, Raiders and Bucs have quit would be hyperbole. To say their fans are ready to quit watching them would be more accurate. There was little to nothing worth mentioning about their performances Sunday in one-sided defeats. In the New York and Tampa Bay areas, much of the chatter will be about removing Todd Bowles and Dirk Koetter as head coaches of their respective outfits. At least Jon Gruden won’t be worrying about job security with a Raiders team he has torn asunder, and he has the job security to rebuild. By Barry Wilner. SENT: 804 words, photos.
