The board put out a press release saying “The approval is granted for all licensed books to post and accept wagers on those winners subject to the following conditions: licensed books electing to offer these wagers must provide the enforcement division with notification of terms; acceptance of wagers must cease prior to the final game of the regular season; and the results shall be based on a permissible source in accordance with Regulation 22.060.” 

The setting of odds is at the discretion of the book and rules governing these wagers shall be made available to the public, the board said.
