Go slow if at all on legalization — Sports betting

Go slow if at all on legalization — Sports betting

The decision - which reversed opinions by lower courts - means states may legalize and operate betting on professional and college sports.

Now that the Supreme Court has ruled that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act ("PASPA") is unconstitutional commandeering, a number of states are rushing to pass laws to legalize and regulate sports betting within their borders.

But no entity has moved faster to offer sports betting than Monmouth Park.

McLaughlin spent this week in Naples, Florida, this week for the Atlantic 10's annual spring meetings. "I would think you'd have a significant amount of more people participate in sports gaming than they do in lottery".

Will it prompt the NCAA member institutions to relax their restrictions on athletes, coaches and administrators betting on games?

There is something about accepting the first sports bet on Memorial Day that Monmouth doesn't want to let go. "Regarding all the potential manifestations in a negative way, I don't really see that". "The concerns that typically come along with gambling - we know what those are". That federal law barred gambling on football, basketball, baseball and other sports nationwide except for in Nevada.

The New Jersey Assembly and Senate have two separate bills in the works. The survey found that 62 percent of respondents preferred state control.

Through a spokesman, Virginia Tech athletic director Whit Babcock declined an interview request, deferring comment to ACC Commissioner John Swofford.

Sports gambling may be illegal now, but that could change after this week's Supreme Court ruling.

U.S. states and companies are jostling to be the first to allow punters to try their luck on everything from the Super Bowl to the "March Madness" college basketball tournament. "We will discuss with our membership and determine how we proceed". The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit struck down the state law as an "authorization" of sports gambling in violation of the federal ban, and the Supreme Court declined to review the case. That law had limited the scope of sports gambling in the country.

"If Colorado wanted to it could legalize gambling on sports", Steve Smith, a managing partner with Brian Cave Leighton Paisner, LLP. More than a dozen other states now are considering bills that would do the same thing, though Virginia is not - at present - among them. Law lags morals, but not forever.

" I think it is going to be a free-for-all for quite some time and the legislature is probably going to take quite a while to sort through this issue", said Clyde Barrow, who is the chair of the political science department at the University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley and who has long followed the New England casino market. I think most Minnesotans could handle being able to wager freely on sporting events. Prior to the ruling, the Act was what made gambling on sports illegal (with a couple exceptions) in the United States.

So this week has been an exciting one in the gambling world, hasn't it? "We will review our current practices and policies and decide whether adjustments are needed, and if so, what those adjustments will look like". "Your personal view may differ from what the climate's doing".

One of the big questions if Colorado were to legalize sports gambling is how it would be handled on mobile devices.

"If the Legislature or the governor says 'slow down, ' I'm gonna listen to them."
Sports betting will only thrive with an online component. "I personally would not support it". A white paper from the Massachusetts Gaming Commission earlier this year estimated the state could collect $8-$60 million in revenue from sports betting every year depending on how it is regulated and taxed. "There's too much inherent risk of conflict of interest". "So that keeps you from overextending yourself because you have to have the money to bet".

This season, an National Hockey League team began playing in Las Vegas, where the NFL's Oakland Raiders will relocate in 2020.
