A new bill from state Sen. Kristin Corrado, R-Passaic, would eliminate the opportunity for gamblers in New Jersey to place any “prop” bets on collegiate match-ups.

Corrado’s legislation essentially reflects the wishes of the NCAA, which believes that prop bets are a threat to the integrity of collegiate competition.
