When can I legally bet on sports?

The Supreme Court ruled that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), the federal legislation which has prevented states from legalising sports betting, was unconstitutional. An estimated $20 billion to $40 billion of "black market" sports betting goes on in California - even a small percentage in taxes would be a big boost to the state coffers.

Some sports leagues have urged states to ban some prop bets, primarily the situational variety that can be easily impacted by a single player or decision without necessarily altering the game's outcome.

National Basketball Association (NBA) Commissioner Adam Silver said the league "remain [s] in favor of a federal framework that would provide a uniform approach to sports gambling in states that choose to permit it", adding that "the integrity of our game remains our highest priority". "Today's ruling will finally allow for authorized facilities in New Jersey to take the same bets that are legal in other states in our country". "Many of my colleagues are philosophically against the expansion of gambling".

There's also the question of the anti-casino amendment on the November ballot. Churchill Downs, which operates the Kentucky Derby, rose 4.9 percent to a record high, while Penn National Gaming climbed 4.7 percent, also to a record.

Casino operator Caesars Entertainment Corp shares were up 6 percent at $12.60, while rival MGM Resorts International shares were up 2 percent at $32.45.

"They do have an advantage because they have already gone through whatever legal process it is they have to go through", says Marcy Block, senior director at Fitch Ratings.

In dissent, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said the court had erred by using a "wrecking ball" to destroy the 1992 federal law.

"If Indiana passed a law and decides to tax legalized gambling, that could generate millions maybe even tens of millions in revenue per year", said Grow. IL has proposed legislation that would allow sports gambling.

Stars Group Inc., the Toronto-based online-gambling company formerly known as Amaya, was one of the bigger winners, jumping 9.4 per cent after the US court decision was announced.

It is a big decision, as a lot of the sports betting was already going on under the table.

At River Spirit Casino in Tulsa, which is owned by the Muskogee Creek Nation, CEO Pat Crofts says their customers want sports betting.

In statement to ABC-7, Linder said, "We need to work closely with our legislators and regulators to better understand their vision for the state and the potential impacts of legalizing sports wagering". Will they offer sports betting?

"The integrity of the sport is an angle that antagonists have used in the fight against the legalization of sports betting, but it's not one I consider credible", Cooley said in an email with the Journal-World.

Daily fantasy sports company DraftKings Inc said in a statement that it is weighing entering the sports betting business as a result of the decision. John Bonacic, R-Orange County, and Assemblyman Gary Pretlow, D-Westchester, have been crafting legislation that would allow existing off track betting sites and video lottery terminal parlors to join casinos in launching sports betting platforms.
