Major League Baseball claims it hasn’t had a game fixed bygamblers since 1919. Point shaving hasn’t admittedly occurred in the NBA since1954. And the NFL publicly states not one of its games has come under outside influence–ever.This league-sponsored history, however, is wrong.
When sports and gambling are mixed, they create a volatilecocktail of corruption, greed, and the very real potential for game fixing. Larceny Games provides the details andnames the names of Hall of Fame athletes who have either bet upon their ownsport or outright thrown games for the benefit of gamblers–and why the sportsleagues have covered-up these incidents.
Often seen as avictimless crime, sports gambling is more than betting $50 on your favoriteteam; it’s a multi-billion dollar, illegal and mob-controlled industry. Larceny Games digs into this vastunderworld through interviews with sports gambling insiders and former FBIagents as well as detailing information from more than 400 previouslyunreleased FBI case files relating to sports bribery (the legal term for gamefixing and/or point shaving) to reveal how professional athletes and refereeshave been corrupted into fixing games in the NFL, NBA, MLB, boxing, soccer, andtennis.
