My proposition is simple -
every team's owner to have a possibility to bet on 1 game weekly definite amount of cash (let's say 1 mil. bucks) or credits (for example 10 credits). Of course he won't be allowed to bet on his own team's games...
The allowed choices for betting will be home/guest win or under/over etc...
I don't know if my idea is technically possible for implementation to the game engine, but in the case of yes , there are details to be put on consideration furthur...

I don't think gambling is a way the game should go.

I could imagine some kind of fantasy football option to play with, but even that would have to be done very carefully.

But betting on wins with ingame money (not a good idea from my point of view, since this would a l t e r the financial system heavily) or even with credits (even worse idea, since this is basically a system which is created to bring in some real live money) is in this environment massively under cheating and betraying influence and should not be an option.

on top, since Credits represent a real value, I am not allowed to run gambling based on existing laws. I was checking this, since this suggestion is not a new one.

We've had ideas or suggestions about gambling, bets, shares, casino.

We have facilities, fanshops, markets, IG money.
We don't have any bank.

Maybe it would be possible think to improve a little bit the sponsor feature.
Now sponsor pay a price every win, maybe we can add something.
What if managers have to predict their own regular season record committing on a target.
The sponsor pays the prize only if the target is achieved
Of course more challenging is the target more high is the prize.
Let see an example
Prize 200K for a win
In the beginning of the season and before week 1 the manager commit on a regular season 10 win / 6 loss
If he achieve the target the price is 200Kx10 = 2M
In order to achieve the target the manager has to share the 30% of the prize with the team as a bonus on top the wages, and 15% guarantee
So the manager agrees with the sponsor 2M prize if he win at least 10 games in regular season
He pays immediately 15% (300K) as wage bonus.
Target achieved he will get 2M and pay other 15% (300k)
Target missed -50% morale and TC for the whole roster
In this way you have to choose a challenging target but affordable.
The same could work for target like winning Division / Conference / Bowl …
And for Sc too.
At the moment I cannot see a way to cheat…
Maybe it only a foolish idea…
