    Sports Gambling To Become Legal In The US

    The supreme court on Monday struck down a federal law that bars gambling on football, basketball, baseball and other sports in most states, giving states the go-ahead to legalize betting on sports.

    The supreme court ruled 6-3 to strike down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act. The 1992 law barred state-authorized sports gambling with some exceptions. It made Nevada the only state where a person could wager on the results of a single game.

    One research firm estimated before the ruling that if the supreme court were to strike down the law, 32 states would probably offer sports betting within five years.

    That's huge news for gamblers nationwide to see the ban finally being lifted. On the other hand, for the state of Alabama, it's pretty pathetic that the state has no lottery or a casino which every state around us has one of the other. I personally love to gamble, but not big money but I hope this state gives gambling a go because of its politics and so-called Christian values imo are the reasons why Bama is in the shadows and it does suck.

    I literally had no idea you couldn't bet legally on sports anywhere outside of Nevada.

    Some interesting laws in your country Good call supreme court.

    You couldn't gamble outside of certain states? Wow, didn't know that at all.

    Thank goodness. It was so annoying not being able to check/bet with Bet365 when I was in NYC a couple of months ago.

    A real science involved with successful ATS wagering. Very time consuming. Joe Public simply won't take the time needed.

    That's what the people running the gambling are counting on.

    Sports gambling must be one of my favourite hobbies. Welcome to the dark side, America!

    Also find it crazy that this wasn't allowed outside of Nevada. Had no idea. Considered you guys were the front runners like most sports stuff.
