Sports Wagering

Risk + Reward = Violation

According to NCAA BYLAW 10.3, Student-athletes shall not knowingly...participate in any gambling activity that involves intercollegiate or professional athletics.

Any activity in which an individual must pay a fee to enter with the chance of receiving a prize at the end is a violation.

Things to remember:

  • Gambling activities that do not involve the outcome of contests are not permitted (e.g., fantasy leagues, picking the top scorer).
  • Cash is not the only prohibited item to be used as a wager in gambling. It is not permissible to bet with any other item that has tangible value, such as a shirt or a meal.
  • Providing information about a student-athlete to individuals involved in organized gambling activities is considered participation in a gambling activity and is prohibited.
