But if you're gambling, you can put money on any game you want. Why put it on a game like the NFL when you can bet on a soccer game of which there are like 87 being played at any given time?
Also, the amount of money I saw as being involved (it was when the numbers were a bit less, I think) would not have even begun to influence an NFL game. I think I saw something like up to $100k per game spent on fixes. There's no way anyone throws a game and kills their career for a piece of that $100k.
