This week the Supreme Court cleared the way for legalized sports gambling. Each state has the option to allow gambling in their states. The law that was passed 26 years ago was struck down to hopefully raise the TV viewings.  “The sports television industry is struggling. There is an onslaught of competition from streaming services, video games, social networks and mobile phones. Fans can’t see the vast majority of games without an expensive cable subscription, and millions are opting to “cut the cord” or never install one. Rights’ costs are increasing while ratings are decreasing. Viewers are getting older.” Said Kevin Draper of The New York Times. . “According to a Nielsen Sports study, commissioned by the American Gaming Association, sports bettors made up 25 percent of the N.F.L.’s television audience in 2015 but accounted for 47 percent of all minutes viewed. Sports bettors watch about twice as much sports coverage as non-bettors do. So it stands to reason that making it easier for people to become sports bettors will make them more likely to watch sports.” As said in The New York Times.

Even with this old law being shut down doesn’t mean you will be able to bet any time soon. Each individual state legislation has to allow betting. There is also a chance that even if your state allows gambling doesn’t mean there will be many places to do so
