Brian O’Dwyer recently sent a letter to NCAA President Charlie Baker explaining his agreement with Baker’s call for such action in every state where sports betting is legal.

Such a ban would impact sports betting in New York, but it’s not evident if it would solve a problem that exists.

“As regulators of the largest sports betting market in the United States, we continue to believe the prohibition of college proposition betting on student-athletes is appropriate,” O’Dwyer wrote in a letter dated April 15 and sent under the letterhead of the NYSGC, which includes the name of Gov. Kathy Hochul.
