ATLANTIC CITY — DraftKings and Resorts Casino are firing the latest shot in New Jersey’s sports book arms race, with a full-fledged sports betting facility due to open in a week.

It is the latest ambitious offering in a scramble by New Jersey casinos, racetracks and bookmakers to have not only an online operation, but also a game-day physical facility to attract and hold fans as they bet, eat and drink.
