SANFORD, Fla. -- Football’s big game is this Sunday, February 13th, and millions of Americans are gearing up to watch who is going to be the victor on the playing field and in the betting arena.

Fans can no longer watch a game without being bombarded with sports betting advertisements. This is a significant cultural shift and one in which government, health care professionals, and others need to be attentive to and prepared for, because the proliferation of sports betting is increasing the number of people at risk for gambling addiction.” Click here to download!
