SALEM, Oregon – Since the Oregon Lottery started the sports betting app Scoreboard in October, $45 million have been wagered.

“And that means close to $3 million in profits for the lottery and lottery beneficiaries,” said Chuck Bauman, senior public affairs officer for the Oregon Lottery.

Bauman said the NBA tops the list of wagers, followed by the NFL.  Last weekend’s NFL Wild Card game between the Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles had the most bets of any game so far totally nearly $450,000.
