Arguably the hottest controversy in the Michigan sports betting sphere currently is that of the partnership between Caesars Sportsbook and Michigan State University.
As earlier reported, the partnership has been under scrutiny since last year when a New York Times article published details about the $8.4 million deal.
In response, the American Gaming Association released a new sports marketing code a few weeks back banning sportsbook partnerships with colleges.
Despite the new AGA guidelines, neither Michigan State University nor Caesars Sportsbook MI has pulled the plugs on the deal. However, a petition has now started within the university community.
