Sooner or later these type things are going to happen with sports betting.
I bet it's happened a lot already and just hasn't come to light. Of course, if you're an irrelevant bench guy like Porter, you'll get the book thrown at you.

But if you're a superstar like... I don't know, Shohei Ohtani, just to pull a name out of the air... everyone looks the other way.

Or say Pete Rose?
