FILE - In this Dec. 24, 2016, file photo, Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis waits for the team's NFL football game against the Indianapolis Colts in Oakland, Calif. The Raiders' new stadium in Las Vegas could literally be walking distance from a few of the city’s dozens of sports books. The bottom-line explanation for this move speaks as much about priorities in Vegas as in the NFL: It’s about cold, hard cash. The new stadium will be funded by $750 million from the county, another $650 million from either billionaire Sheldon Adelson or another investor and the remaining $500 million from the Raiders and the league.
