Default Supreme Court rules that sports betting is legal

Mississippi is the first state to try and make it work ... I think New Jersey, who brought the law suit to the Supreme Court level, will be next.
I have doubts that this will work in the college football ranks ... too easy to cheat

Mississippi casinos, including those along the Gulf Coast just across the Louisiana state line, are pushing to get their sports books up and running in the wake of a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court Monday that opens the way for states to legalize sports betting. Previously, it had been limited to Nevada and a handful of other places.

Technically, the SCotUS leaves it up to the individual states to decide whether it will be legal in that individual state.

Seriously, it wasn't illegal in Vegas and I think Atlantic City. If you lived in another state, you had your " book maker " with connections in Vegas make your bets for you.

You can't legally gamble in any state in North America except Nevada, New Jersey, Miss, Tenn are the only ones I know of, but those pesky Indians have invoked an old tribal treaty that says their land is sovereign and that they can have casino's, but not in every state and then of course even the Indian casino's are limited in what they can offer to play ... no craps, no roulette wheel for example.

Some states like California have poker parlors and Indian Casino's I suspect they will be petitioning the state to allow sports betting.

Freedom to wager on sports will embarrass the USA someday ... Please organized crime stay away from NFL football

Well, I've certainly learned something from the above

Me thinks Hawaii and Utah are the only two states that do not permit gambling. All other states permits some form of it.

This court decision is significant. It may affect other areas such as state marijuana laws and sanctuary cities.

It is good to see the 10 amendment get some recognition
