What to Make of Gambling Stocks After SCOTUS Ruling

Some folks in Vicksburg are already putting sports betting on their calendar.

When the Supreme Court invalidated the federal ban, the court left it up to states to decide whether to allow sports wagers. But unlike dozens of other states that anticipated Monday's ruling, ME will be playing catch up if it wants to get involved in a multibillion-dollar sports gambling business.

While bets on high school sporting events have been taken by some offshore sportsbooks in the past, the practice is outlawed in Nevada, the only state as of now to legally offer single-game sports wagering.

After a multi-year legal battle between New Jersey and the four major sports leagues, MLB, NBA, NFL and NHL, to get legalized sports betting outside of Nevada only, the monumental ruling paves the way for Tioga Downs as well as the other three NY state casinos to offer this type of wagering on property once legislation is written and passed by the state.

The last part of Supreme Court's verdict is important, as a move to uphold the outlaw status on sports gambling would have blown the states rights issue right out of the water.

Steve Ruddock, a reporter and online gaming expert at Online Poker Report, previously said he thinks RAWA is "dead and buried", and pointed out that overturning PASPA would add more shovels full of dirt to the effort.

One of those tracks is Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, site of Saturday's 143rd Preakness.

It doesn't help that Drazin came out and put May 28 into the minds of eagerly awaiting NJ sports betting patrons. "It becomes a social experience".

The law was challenged by the state of New Jersey, which had already passed laws permitting sports betting and had written regulations to govern the practice, making the state the only jurisdiction in the US directly impacted by the Supreme Court ruling. At the time, New Jersey decided against it, and when the year passed, the state fell under the general ban.

Kentucky is capital of thoroughbred horses but has no casinos.

West Virginia's casinos have seen declining revenues in recent years, according to Larrick.

The Supreme Court decision reinforces the anti-commandeering jurisprudence of the 10th Amendment, which was dormant from the New Deal era to the mid-1990s. Sports betting will only be allowed inside casinos in Mississippi.

That same night, Israeli airstrikes reportedly wiped out the majority of Syrian air defenses in the southern part of the country . As a result, Russian Federation now possesses some of the most advanced air and missile defense systems in the world.


They're also hoping folks who may not be interested in coming in for slot machines will be drawn in by the sports betting.

Good news no doubt for investors, but it will take time.

Intense competition for control of the sports betting market in Massachusetts can be expected from the state's licensed casino operators, the Massachusetts Lottery, and online fantasy sports sites. Industry website Equibase hasn't tracked attendance since the mid-1990s, but it has been dropping.

"As an owner and a team, we're going to follow what the league ultimately does here", said Cheeseman.

Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert's previous Derby victor, American Pharoah, created a buzz three years ago in becoming the sport's first Triple Crown champion since 1978.

On the reverse end, we have seen a lot of match fixing from places that have it outlawed, most notably Korea.

That doesn't necessarily mean the revenue will go to horse racing, however. States have the authority to essentially "do what thou wilt" without the risk of catching any heat from national law enforcement agencies.

The two industries are in disagreement over some aspects of proposed legislation in various states, with sports leagues anxious about the potential for match fixing whenever betting is involved in their matches, Grove said. William Hill reportedly plans to offer the same menu as its Nevada offering when it opens at Monmouth Park in New Jersey in the near future.

Manuel said Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany mentioned the Supreme Court ruling during the conference meetings this week.

"I love when they say record-breaking handles, which means people are involved and still into it", Baffert said.

"No license to operate a sports pool shall be issued ... to any person that operated a sports pool within one year prior to the enactment of this act."

"You like to win when there's a crowd". "So if the Yankees were in the World Series, you couldn't bet on that", Sleight said.
