The State Racing and Gaming Commission fined the Tipico sports book $5,000 for allowing a bet on how many interceptions the quarterback would have in the Super Bowl. They issued a second fine of $15,000 for allowing a bet on how many points Caitlin Clark would have in an NCAA tournament game. Both type of bets are not allowed by Iowa law.
