to be knowledgeable about most things football (and legal), I want to get opinions on something. Would it be feasible and/or legal to start a website or other service whereby futures bets could be bought and sold-- perhaps in a StubHub or ebay fashion (with a per-transaction fee)? The first and most obvious drawback I see is the legality vel non of the whole idea, but I view it this way: the bet has already been made, all this does is provide a way to sell an already-made bet. Second, and perhaps more tricky, is how to ensure that the person selling his bet actually transfers or assigns his right to collect his winnings (if the bet pays off) to the buyer. This is complicated by the fact that online betting sites don't deposit money into your bank account when you win, but into your account with their site (likely in hopes that you'll reinvest). Anyway, if someone could make this happen, I think it would be a potentially lucrative venture. I'm sure folks have put a lot more thought into this than I have, and this concept may already exist, but I would love to hear everyone's thoughts.
