A new, gambling-focused telecast of Washington Wizards games is just the appetizer to what the team and its TV partner hope will be a more substantial main course: giving fans the ability to place bets in real time while watching games at home. Whether that idea comes to fruition will depend on laws in the states where Wizards games are shown on the regional network NBC Sports Washington. But the concept shows how legal sports betting continues to change the way sports are presented to the public. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky, File)
