Louisiana to Prohibit Prop Bets on College Players Beginning August 1st

Sports Betting Regulator Prohibits College Prop Bets, Citing Integrity Concerns and Player Harassment

The Louisiana Gaming Control Board (LGCB) issued an order to its licensed sports betting operators on August 1, prohibiting player prop bets in college sports. The order allows operators to honor any outstanding prop bets, but they should make every effort to comply with the new rule, despite potential challenges in identifying players impacted.

In a statement, LGCB chairman Ronnie Johns emphasized that the order was in the works before the NCAA’s call to action on college proposition bets. He highlighted the need to protect the integrity of sports betting and ensure the safety and integrity of college athletes.

Following reports of integrity issues and player harassment in recent months, NCAA president Charlie Baker urged for increased scrutiny surrounding player props in college athletics. Baker highlighted the rising issues with prop bets threatening the integrity and competition of sports, leading to harassment of student and professional athletes.

Several states have already banned college player prop bets, including Maryland, Ohio, Vermont, North Carolina, New Jersey, Kansas, and Wyoming. Some states only allow player prop betting on college teams located outside of their state boundaries.

The NCAA has called for increased scrutiny surrounding player props in college athletics after several reports of integrity issues and player harassment have emerged in recent months. These incidents have raised concerns about how these types of bets could affect the integrity and competition of sports at both the collegiate and professional levels.
