An NCAA study on gambling found that wagering among male student-athletes is down nearly 10 percent from 2008, though concerns remain over the increased use of social media and technology for betting.

The study found that 57 percent of male athletes reported gambling for money in 2012, a drop of nine percent from four years earlier.

Gambling among men who play Division I sports fell from 58 percent to 50 percent from 2008 to 2012. Similar decreases were reported in Division II and III, while female athletes stayed steady at 39 percent.
