Supreme Court Opens Door to Legal Sports Betting

Supreme Court Opens Door to Legal Sports Betting

A Supreme Court ruling has opened the door for states to legalize sports betting. That happened on Monday as the high court ruled 6-3 against a 1992 law that barred state-authorized sports gambling with some exceptions. The act had previously banned sports gambling in nearly all states across the country. New Jersey is the immediate victor, and will be able to enact legal sports gambling within the next few weeks.

Four states already have legal sports gambling on some level and Nevada is the only state where people can wager on individual games.

It is now up to the individual states to decide whether or not they want legalized sports betting within their borders.
