first_img Related Articles Share The tables have turned yet again for all Italian betting stakeholders, as the coalition of Lega and Five Star Movement, have been sworn in as Italy’s new government.On Friday new Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte convinced Italy’s constitutional President Sergio Mattarella, to accept a Lega-5 Star government, having restructured the populist coalition’s executive cabinet and finance ministry.Conte will now lead as PM of western Europe’s first populist government, made up of anti-establishment Five Star and the right-wing Lega Nord members.The formation of a Lega-5 Star government, was the least preferred outcome for Italian betting stakeholders, as both parties have publicly taken an anti-gambling stance.Presenting their joint coalition mandate, Luigi di Maio leader of Five Star and Matteo Salvini head of Lega Nord, had agreed to push through severe restrictions on the Italian gambling sector, seeking to create a ‘stronger social contract against the ills of gambling’.Within the joint mandate, Lega-5 Star have presented a breakdown of potential betting/gambling restrictions, which the populist government seeks to deliver;“Total advertising and sponsorship ban, financial transparency for gambling companies, exit strategy from “machines gambling” (such as Slot machines, video lottery) through tools such as the authorization to install slot machines – VLT only in dedicated outlets (no bars, distributors, etc.), limitations in gambling times and increase of the minimum distance from sensitive places (schools and youth aggregation areas)” reads the Lega-5 Star document on gambling.Both di Maio and Salvini have talked tough on further restricting Italy’s betting sector. However, as Italian commentators point out Lega-5 Star are novices at political governance, which may impede the coalition from executing any effective mandate.Furthermore, though both populist, Lega and 5 Star differ on a number of policy goals and ideologies, with regards to tax, immigration, government expenditure and Italy’s EU relations.Though a coalition government has been accepted, the question remains on whether Lega-5 Star can govern effectively or else Italy will head back to voting stations in 2019.The populist coalition’s first policy test will come this Autumn when the new government announces its first budget, which all sector stakeholders will be eagerly anticipating.Facing the reality of governance combined with Italy’s debt bond repayments, can Lega-5 Star afford to handicap a tax-efficient betting industry?  Put simply… reality now bites for di Maio and Salvini’s populist agenda.

first_imgWEEK 10 NON-PPR RANKINGSQuarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST  | KickerIs Amari Cooper playing Sunday night?UPDATE:  Cooper is officially ACTIVE.After an MRI on Thursday, Cooper was diagnosed with a bruised knee, and the initial belief at the time was that he would play on Sunday night against Minnesota. Nothing has changed since then, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported very early Sunday morning . Cooper is a must-start if active. If he’s out, expect more targets for Michael Gallup and a variety of secondary receivers, led by Randall Cobb. Because this is a prime-time game, you should have a backup from either the Cowboys, Vikings, 49ers, or Seahawks to sub in if Cooper is a surprise scratch.WEEK 10 PPR RANKINGS: Running back |  Wide receiver | Tight endIs JuJu Smith-Schuster playing Week 10?UPDATE:  Smith-Schuster is officially ACTIVE.Smith-Schuster (toe) was a late add to the injury report on Friday, though no official clarification was given. He dealt with a toe injury earlier in the season, so the most likely reason is that he aggravated it in practice.If Smith-Schuster is active, he’ll be a boom-or-bust WR3 in a tough matchup against Jalen Ramsey and the Rams defense. If he’s out, Diontae Washington and James Washington will be Pittsburgh’s primary wide receivers, but it’s hard to recommend either with Mason Rudolph under center. If anything, Vance McDonald and Jaylen Samuels will benefit the most. Because this game doesn’t kick off until late in the afternoon, fantasy owners should play it safe and either keep JuJu on their benches or have a fill-in from the late/prime-time games ready to go.WEEK 10 DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y! GPP | DK cash  | DK GPP |  FD cash  | FD GPPMarquise Brown injury updateUPDATE 2:  Brown is officially ACTIVE.UPDATE 1:  NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported Sunday morning that Brown is expected to play. After missing two games prior to Baltimore’s bye and returning for last week’s game against the Patriots, Brown (ankle) is once again listed as “questionable” heading into Sunday’s game in Cincinnati.MORE WEEK 10 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup BuilderAt this point, it would be a surprise if he’s out, and as long as he’s active, he’s a worthwhile starter against a Bengals’ defense prone to allowing big plays. If Brown is out, Willie Snead would be the primary beneficiary, but he would still be no more than a deep FLEX play. It’s already been a bad week for wide receivers, with Adam Thielen, A.J. Green, Brandin Cooks, T.Y. Hilton, and Sterling Shepard ruled out (and Corey Davis listed as “doubtful”), and it could get even worse depending on the active/inactive statuses of “questionable” WRs Amari Cooper, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Marquise Brown.
