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.

FILE - In this Aug. 20, 2015, file photo, Therese Duenas counts money as she takes bets in the sports book at the South Point hotel and casino in Las Vegas. On the board behind here are odds on NFL football and other bets. Once upon a time, the thought of gambling on a pro football game brought gasps of indignation from the NFL offices. And swift action if it was a player who actually placed a bet. The Oakland Raiders’ new stadium could literally be walking distance from a few of the city’s dozens of sports books.

FILE - In this Jan. 31, 1999, file photo, Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway (7) stiff-arms Atlanta Falcons linebacker Cornelius Bennett during the third quarter of Super Bowl XXXIII in Miami. The first time the Falcons made the Super Bowl, they put on quite a show. Just not in the game. The colorful team known as “The Dirty Birds” arrived in Miami squabbling over the way they departed their chartered jet, and they closed the week with one of their defensive leaders being arrested for trying to solicit a prostitute. In the end, it wasn’t a surprise when they were blown out by the Broncos in Elway’s final game. (AP Photo/Doug Mills, File)
