    New Jersey’s governor bet that the New Jersey Devils will win the Stanley Cup Youth Harold Landry Jersey , while basketball legend Julius Erving bet that Philadelphia’s football team will repeat as champions, placing the wagers Thursday, the day betting on professional sports became legal in the state.

    The action took place at Monmouth Park, a racetrack in Oceanport near the Jersey shore, and at the Borgata, Atlantic City’s first casino to jump into the sports betting market since New Jersey won a Supreme Court case a month ago clearing the way for all 50 states to offer it should they choose.

    At the track, Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy placed $20 bets on Germany to win the World Cup soccer tournament, and his state’s Devils to win hockey’s Stanley Cup next season.

    Thirty minutes later and 70 miles to the south, Erving, better known to Philadelphia 76ers fans as « Dr. J., » put $5 on the Philadelphia Eagles to repeat as NFL champions. He made his bet at the Borgata at the same time New Jersey’s Democratic state Senate President Steve Sweeney put $200 on his beloved Green Bay Packers to win the Super Bowl at 10-1 odds.

    New Jersey fought for eight years against a federal law that had limited sports betting to four states 鈥?Nevada, Delaware, Montana and Oregon.

    « We knew in our heads we were right, and we knew in our hearts we would win, » Murphy said. « We’ve got a lot of good times ahead. »

    Al Pniewski, of Hazlet, New Jersey Will Hernandez Game Jersey , took the day off from his warehouse job at a food service company to bet $100 on the Pittsburgh Steelers to win the next Super Bowl, at 12-1 odds.

    « My wife thinks I’m nuts for doing this, » he said. « This has been a long time coming. On college football Saturdays, me and my brother-in-law are gonna be here every weekend. »

    Greg Visone, of Millburn, New Jersey, bet on Russia to prevail in its opening World Cup match against Saudi Arabia.

    Both Pniewski and Visone had previously placed bets with neighborhood bookies, as well as offshore internet sites. Both had gotten burned at least once dealing with the shady side of sports betting.

    Pniewski lost his money with a website when he tried to cash out, and Visone got lured in by fake odds of 40-1 on a soccer game that turned out to be 4-1 after he had wired his money to make the bet.

    Those sorts of experiences are among the things legal sports betting aims to prevent. New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement issued its sports betting regulations on Wednesday, and the activity is subject to numerous consumer protections.

    The line of would-be sports gamblers at the Borgata stretched out the door, down a staircase and into the parking lot before betting began at 11 a.m.

    « I couldn’t be happier, » said Borgata President Marcus Glover.

    Murphy made two more bets at the Borgata: $20 on the New York Mets to win Thursday night and $20 on New Jersey NASCAR driver Martin Truex to win the Daytona 500.

    Jim Wood, a 63-year-old business owner from Margate, New Jersey, went to the casino’s sports book in a suit and tie to bet $20 on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to make it to the Super Bowl.

    « I’m a huge Bucs fan, » he said. « I went to the very first Buccaneers game in 1976. It’s a great opportunity to have sports betting in New Jersey. »

    Mike Sochasai of Toms River, New Jersey Cheap Derwin James Jersey , was planning a four-team baseball parlay bet that seemed to depend on the New York Mets losing.

    « When I would go to Vegas, this is always what we wanted to do here, but couldn’t, » he said.

    Dennis Drazin, who runs Monmouth Park, said the track has spent $5 million in the run-up to sports betting on physical renovations and legal fees, adding he was « euphoric » to see the first bets actually placed.

    Online sports betting will not start for at least 30 days in New Jersey. Until then, it is limited to casinos and horse tracks.

    The Minnesota Timberwolves picked up another important win to keep pace in this relentless Western Conference race.

    Their quest to end the franchise’s 14-year absence from the playoffs still isn’t finished.

    Karl-Anthony Towns slammed his way to 24 points and grabbed 18 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who toughed out a 113-94 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night to move one step closer to the postseason.

    ”We had to play as if we had that kind of desperation in us,” said Towns, who had five dunks to help ignite the crowd.

    They haven’t always displayed that attitude down the stretch, which is why they weren’t able to clinch that long-sought spot before their 82nd game. They’ll have to beat surging Denver on Wednesday night to get in, because the Nuggets won their sixth straight game to stay tied with the Wolves in eighth place. Denver’s victory over Portland ended about an hour after Minnesota’s, but the players expressed nonchalance about following along as they left the arena.

    ”I’m not going to check my phone. I’m going to go eat,” Jimmy Butler said wryly, after scoring 15 points in 23 minutes, his second game back from the knee injury.

    Jeff Teague added 24 points for the Timberwolves Mike Hughes Jersey Elite , who trailed by 10 points early before taking over against a depleted Grizzlies team that beat them 101-93 exactly two weeks ago in one of their worst losses of the season.

    Teague missed six of his first eight shots, but he helped the Wolves pull away with a four-point play in the early portion of the third quarter. His lob found Andrew Wiggins for a soaring dunk about three minutes later. Gorgui Dieng sank his second 3-pointer of the night soon after for a 75-63 lead. Butler gave the Wolves a 98-83 lead midway through the fourth quarter with a hustle to finish a fast break with a layup.

    The Wolves brought energy and crisp ball movement, but they clearly carried some pressure with them during an ugly start filled with turnovers and misfires. They made only four of their first 16 shots from the field, and boos circulated in the arena as Omari Johnson’s jumper put the Grizzles in front 24-14. Butler missed a short bank shot as he was fouled and bricked the first free throw, too, causing him to growl in disgust as he reached the bench early in the second quarter.

    The Wolves, though, used a 20-4 run to lighten the mood a little in the arena. Derrick Rose (13 points), Dieng (11 points) and Tyus Jones (eight points) combined to produce a solid output from the second unit.

    ”We were just playing soft. We tend to do that from time to time,” Butler said. ”Whenever we play hard, a lot of good things happen.”

    GIBSON GOES OUT

    The Wolves lost power forward Taj Gibson in the first quarter to a neck injury he suffered in the previous game and tried to play through. He left for the locker room without returning to the bench.

    ”It’s tough when you can’t even turn your neck from right to left when you look around,” Gibson said. ”Just try to get as much treatment as possible.”

    STILL SWEATING

    Ben McLemore had 18 points for the Grizzlies, who moved one loss closer to a prime lottery pick and fell to 6-34 on the road.

    The Grizzlies, whose streak of seven straight postseason appearances was snapped long ago, were sapped by the summer departures of stalwarts Zach Randolph, Tony Allen and Vince Carter. Mike Conley, Tyreke Evans and Chandler Parsons have missed a combined 143 games. Even Marc Gasol Cheap Ronald Jones II Jersey , who bested Towns for 20 points and 10 rebounds in the last matchup, sat out to rest. The starting lineup for this game had only one holdover, Dillon Brooks, from the March 26 meeting.

    The Grizzlies would match the franchise’s worst record (22-60) since the move to Memphis if they lose their final game.

    ”It’s disrespectful to say that guys are tanking and trying to lose, because those guys that are on the floor every night have something to prove,” interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff said, adding: ”Every single night they’re giving their best effort. So you’ve got to give the guys that are out there on the court more respect than I think people give them credit for.”

    TIP-INS

    Grizzlies: MarShon Brooks, who averaged nearly 24 points over his first five games with the team since joining last month fresh from the Chinese league, missed 12 of 16 shots against tough defense from Butler and finished with 14 points.

    ”Just going out there playing hard, making them work for everything,” Brooks said.

    Timberwolves: Backup center Cole Aldrich, who has logged just 49 minutes all season, was honored before the game with the Flip Saunders Legacy Award for community service in honor of the team’s late executive and coach. Aldrich had an assist in the final minute.

    UP NEXT

    Grizzlies: Play at Oklahoma City on Wednesday to wrap up the franchise’s 23rd season, the 17th in Memphis.

    Timberwolves: Take on Denver on Wednesday, after losing 100-96 on the road last week.
