The Chicago Cubs are getting into the gambling business...
The Cubs announced a multiyear partnership with DraftKings on Thursday -- which includes plans for an in-person sports book at the ballpark.
The book would either be located inside the stadium or in the Wrigleyville-area right outside -- they're still hammering out the details.
No timeline has been set -- but it's obvious both sides are trying to fast track the process.
The book will include betting windows and self-serve kiosks -- it sounds like something similar to what you would see at a horse racing track.
Matt Kalish -- co-founder and president of DraftKings -- says he sees the sportsbook as a hybrid gambling center/bar where fans can grab a beer while plunking down bets.
"It might be the Cubs to win, maybe a few props like first home run, then stroll into the game at 6:45, sit down, sweat my bets and cheer on the Cubs," Kalish said (via ESPN).
"Then, after the game I can stop back at the DraftKings book, relax with my friends, get some food and drink and think about the next day's game, maybe put in a few more tickets."
