About damn time.
Also paves the way for poker to make its comeback in the US.
What makes you say that? I hope you're right, just curious of the connection.
Free markets are winning finally!
In theory, if sports betting (gambling) is legal, there’s zero reason for a game of skill to be illegal.
Completely legal sports gambling is going to be awesome. (And possibly terrible.) They're basically going to throw apps on top of streamed content that will let you bet in game with your computer or even a gaming controller. Imagine watching a cfb game where you can bet on whether or not a team scores a touchdown right before they begin a two minute drill. Or watching the masters and opening a new bet on all 18 holes of the final group.
First sports betting, then all gaming, weed and prostitution.
This is what Democrats should be running on: Making America Fun Again
Several sites have offered live betting for years.
7-2 decision. Haven’t read it but that makes me happy. The two were Sotomayer and RBG.
Yeah, can literally bet on live plays if you are that into it.
Also, living about 20 minutes from the NJ border right now. I would like to buy a dive bar right across the border. With everyone's permission I would like to call it, Hello at the Show.
I can't wait to lose all my money and have my team lose on the same day!
Yea and people have been playing fantasy football forever too. Its about to get packaged in a much more interactive way on your tv.
Ahh. That'd be cool.
Can a state still consider it illegal?
Time to quit my job and go full time sharp at my local Indian casino
Pretty sure the leagues are going to own their own services too. I know the PGA basically already has it drawn up in anticipation.
Adam Silver and the nba have already had discussions on this prior to the ruling as well
I'm probably the first person to legally lose a bet under the new law / peel back
Slaven Belupo and Istra 1961 ( soccer) are tied at the half. AMA.
Bet against your team and you will always be happy
Team loses but by less than spread.
I may cry soon.
Jokes on you Arkansas is never favored
edit: ^ is why I'm bad at gambling
ML the opponent
This will lead to fuckery
It’s rampant in the UK. I was simultaneously arroused and terrified when my caddie was describing live betting soccer to me back in 2014.
They have little kiosks in a lot of pubs. It's wonderful.
If it becomes easy to do through your TV, I could see my wife and I betting $1 per at bat on a Sunday night baseball game.
It's going to be interesting to see how states adjust to the home team bias thing. I've read a couple of times that Vegas is getting killed because everyone is betting on the knights all the time, and they're really fucked if they win the cup
Sounds like Silver wants to do like soccer in the UK, with betting windows inside the arenas
they recently made some legislative changes to the sports wagering bylaws. There are no longer prescribed sanctions that apply to all cases. Instead they will now be reviewed on a case by case basis
you used to lose a year of eligibility for wagering on any sport (in which the NCAA conducts a championship) and lose all remaining eligibility if you wagered on any event involving the school you attend
As if suicide wasn’t a big enough problem in this country
Yeah, because the ban on legal sports gambling was keeping people from gambling...
Yep. With bookies, they can change their line to whatever they want. For instance in Philly this year, a guys bookie up there had the Eagles favored by 1. Whereas in Vegas, Patriots were favored by 4.
I feel bad for all the bookies and loan sharks who will be out of work.
To be honest I’m okay with this even though I’ve never been much of a gambler but it’s dishonest to deny that vastly increasing accessibility will do anything but exacerbate individuals gambling issues.
That being said I’m intrigued to see where this market goes, assuming this ruling holds up.
Just about every other form of gambling was already legal in Atlantic City, which was the location of the litigation. This will have a negligible effect there and doesn't "legalize" it anywhere that doesn't want it (like all the places that don't have gambling now). Your post was wildly uninformed.
And, the ruling is going to "hold up." It's the U.S. Supreme Court.
I imagine the major players in that world have a plan to go legit if they’re able.
Wait so I may be able to gamble on professional sports if I work in collegiate athletics without the risk of getting in trouble?
There's still going to be a market for bettors who don't want to pay taxes on everything.
And who like the current pay in/pay out methods with their local guy
JY’s post earlier in the thread articulates my concerns
Posted this on the other thread. With the state running it, they hold all the cards. No legal competition. Instead of allowing business like William Hill and other Major sportsbook to set up shops down the streets, its all going to be state run. Which means they will increase the juice on the bets.
At -120 bets, you have to win at 60% to break even.
At -110 bets, you have to win at 55% to break even.
At -105 bets, you have to win at 52.5% to break even.
You will see -120 on all bets and just make it harder to win in the long term.
Which means you will still have illegal offshore betting and bookies offering better odds.
Is there a court to appeal to after the SC? A SC decision is a wrap, right?
Yeah I misread it initially, “allowing” sports gambling and didn’t realize states had the option to not allow it.
