States Rights

With the impactful Supreme Court hearing last month on New Jersey’s challenge to the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), sports betting legalization has taken another step forward, no matter what the court rules later this year. Many states have taken steps that would permit sports betting operations to open once a repeal of PASPA is confirmed or Congress certifies sports betting via some other law.

The map shows the states where sports betting is already legal, the states that have enacted laws that will permit sports betting operations to open once the ban is repealed, and states where legislation has been introduced to legalize sports betting. The map is part of a white paper on the direction of sports betting produced by Global Market Advisors.

The white paper can be downloaded at the GMA website,, in the library section.
