(Indianapolis, IN) -- The NCAA has released new sports wagering guidelines.
The organization says the punishment handed down to student-athletes will be based on the violation. Players who bet on their team, provide inside information, or influence the outcome of a game due to sports betting could face a permanent loss of collegiate eligibility. Players who place a bet on a different school would lose up to half a season of eligibility.
Other violations would depend on how much they bet. Athletes remain banned from sports gambling of any kind.
