LAS VEGAS -- Rowing, shooting and judo -- the U.S. may have won big go

LAS VEGAS -- Rowing, shooting and judo -- the U.S. may have won big gold medals in those Olympic events but some of the most prominent Las Vegas sports books didnt even bother with them.The bookmakers in Sin City said theres been little money and few expectations for Olympic sports wagering this year, as the games returned to the betting board after being off limits for more than a decade in Nevada.I know that theyre watching. I just know they arent betting, said Jay Kornegay, who runs the sports book at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino. The largest single sports book in town offered more than 70 events for betting, but cut their losses with the so-called second- and third-tier sports that the U.S. took gold medals in.Sporting events held at the 2016 Summer games from Rio de Janeiro have been the first since the 2000 Olympics in Sydney that bettors in Nevada could put their money on, though relatively few have.State gambling regulators were previously against having wagers on what it considered amateur sports but Las Vegas bookmakers successfully lobbied them last year to change the policy. Rivals at the international sports books in Great Britain, Ireland and Australia and offshore Internet sites have already allowed such bets.Officials at the local sports books said they didnt expect a sweeping boon to business but that whatever action theyve gotten, however little, has been better than nothing.Basketball this summer has reigned supreme, as a steady number of bettors backed the familiar NBA stars dominating the mens Olympic games. Soccer and golf were also among the more popular events that were wagered on.The same cant be said of the more obscure sports that some sports books said they didnt get any bites on whatsoever. The overall amounts seen per bet -- $10 to $20 -- for the Olympics have been peanuts compared to the record $132.5 million wagered in Nevada on this years Super Bowl.And though marquee events in the pool and on the gymnastics floor are always a highlight for viewers, the bookmakers said it appears that few people feel confident enough about a sport they only pay attention to once every four years to put their money on it.The ones that do well are the ones people are used to betting on a daily basis, said Nick Bogdanovich, the head odds-maker for William Hill, which runs more than a hundred sports books in the state.Meanwhile, the Wynn Las Vegas resort and casino took a relatively conservative approach by offering only a half dozen events on the betting board. Johnny Avello, the longtime odds-maker and sports book director, said he sensed that there would be mild interest just like in the 1990s.I put in a lot of time in it for very little action, Avello said.But the bookmakers also said its not for a lack of interest in the games, as the competitions have brought people out who just want to watch. Thats created a festive, patriotic scene at the casinos during what is typically a slower sports betting month.Weve had a lot of inquiries about the odds and people look them over and they just dont run to the betting windows, Kornegay said.---Follow Sally Ho at twitter.com/-sallyho.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots?have traded former starting center Bryan Stork?to the Washington Redskins for a conditional seventh-round draft pick.The agreement between the teams, first reported by the NFL Network and confirmed by ESPN, came after Stork had been informed by the Patriots that they planned to release him.The Patriots also released veteran wide receiver Nate Washington?on Wednesday. That move was first reported by CSN New England and later confirmed by ESPN.?The Patriots decision to cut ties with Stork comes as a mild surprise even as he was losing his hold on the top spot of the depth chart to second-year blocker David Andrews.Stork, who was selected by the Patriots in the fourth round of the 2014 draft, played in 25 games for the team, including the playoffs, during the past two seasons (21 starts). He sustained multiple concussions in that time, opening the 2015 season on the injured reserve list because of a concussion.Its tough, said quarterback?Jimmy Garoppolo, who was picked by the Patriots in the same draft class as Stork. Its that time of year. Theres a lot of movement between teams and players and everything. Its tough to see one of your guys go like that.

That continued into the early days of training camp, but Andrews has has a hold on the top spot since Stork was knocked out of practice on the third day due to a reported concussion and missed a week.Stork was also thrown out of a joint practice with the Chicago Bears on Aug. 16. He upset coach Bill Belichick after wildly throwing punches, which didnt connect, at Bears linebacker John Timu.When Belichick was asked about the center position Friday, he called it a good competitive situation.Washington, who has 458 career receptions in 10 seasons with the Steelers, Titans and Texans, was a longshot to make the Patriots roster out of camp. He signed a one-year, $1.065 million contract with the Patriots this offseason, but only $60,000 was guaranteed.Information from ESPNs Mike Reiss, Adam Schefter and Field Yates was used in this report.
