Monmouth Park opens to accept first football bets

A big day for sports fans and those who bet on the big games as Monmouth Park will accept its first bets on football today.
"Sunday Funday" is starting early this morning with fans gathering at Monmouth Park in preparation for the first game at 1 p.m.
Gamblers can place their first football bets at the William Hill Sports Book.

Since sports betting was made legal here in New Jersey back in May, there has been a lot of anticipation over the NFL season.
It could bring in big bucks for the park and William Hill, which operates sports betting at Monmouth Park.
Gamblers can still place bets on other sports.
Many will likely stay to watch the games inside.
