Oral Arguments in Supreme Court Sports Betting Case Begin on Monday

Monday could be big day for the future of legal sports betting in the United States. The US Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the Christie vs NCAA case.

New Jersey hopes to become the second state in the U.S. to offer sports betting but to do so they must convince SCOTUS that the the 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act violates the 10th amendment.

If the Supreme Court were to overturn PASPA, New Jersey could offer sports wagering as soon as 2018 but it could open up the floodgates for other states to legalize sports betting in their states. More than a dozen states have already discussed the possibility of legalizing the popular practice.

New Jersey DGE Director David Rebuck says that online poker and online gambling could also be a beneficiary of the decision.

A decision in the case is expected to be made in June of next year.
