Jeff Gural, who manages the northern New Jersey track, tells The Associated Press that he plans to begin offering sports betting on July 15.

That’s significantly earlier than a timetable the track laid out just over a week ago when a competing track and an Atlantic City casino became the first in New Jersey to take sports bets following its legalization.

The Ocean Resort Casino, formerly known as Revel, will become the third on June 28 when it reopens on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. The Meadowlands would be next in line just over two weeks later.

Ironically, it was the failed pursuit of a casino at the Meadowlands that led to Satchel Paige Jersey concern for its future, and it will be sports betting that will ease those concerns somewhat.

Furthermore, the Bills traded up from the 21st overall pick to the 12th and finally the seventh to acquire Allen’s services. The organization’s entire offseason plan was built around Luke Falk Youth Jersey landing a franchise quarterback, and it chose the big gunslinger from Wyoming. 

The need for Allen to be a franchise savior despite his underdeveloped accuracy could create an untenable situation.  However, Allen’s new teammates see his potential. 

I’m not a big fan of rookies, but Josh Allen is pretty good, running back LeSean McCoy said, per the team’s official site. He’s very intelligent and has a super strong arm. I think he’s a special quarterback.
