Supreme Court Rules States Are Free To Legalize Sports Betting

Proposition bets for Super Bowl LI are displayed at the Race & Sports SuperBook at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino on Jan. 26 in Las Vegas, Nev. — one of four states where sports betting is legal.

"Congress can regulate sports gambling directly," the court wrote in a decision released Monday, "but if it elects not to do so, each state is free to act on its own."
