Chicago Cubs Adding Sports Book at Wrigley Field So Fans Can Gamble on Baseball

06/11/2021

Wanna bet the Chicago Cubs will crush the Pirates? You’ll soon be able to make that bet … RIGHT AT WRIGLEY FIELD!

The Cubs announced a multiyear partnership with DraftKings on Thursday — which includes plans for an in-person sports book at the ballpark.

The book would either be located inside the stadium or in the Wrigleyville-area right outside — they’re still hammering out the details.

No timeline has been set — but it’s obvious both sides are trying to fast track the process.

The book will include betting windows and self-serve kiosks — it sounds like something similar to what you would see at a horse racing track.

And yes, sports gambling is legal in Illinois.

Matt Kalish — co-founder and president of DraftKings — says he sees the sportsbook as a hybrid gambling center/bar where fans can grab a beer while plunking down bets.

“It might be the Cubs to win, maybe a few props like first home run, then stroll into the game at 6:45, sit down, sweat my bets and cheer on the Cubs,” Kalish said (via ESPN).

“Then, after the game I can stop back at the DraftKings book, relax with my friends, get some food and drink and think about the next day’s game, maybe put in a few more tickets.”

Good luck, everyone … especially you, degenerate gamblers!
