Vegas Sports Books Rooting For New Jersey in Supreme Court Case

Nevada sports books had been largely cheering the news on that the Supreme Court had agreed to hear New Jersey’s plea to legalize sports betting tuesday.

In reality, they are probably currently crunching the odds of this Garden State winning the case that is whole.

William Hill United States CEO Joe Asher said this week that PASPA had been a ‘failed law’ and urged the sports leagues to change their tune and get behind legal, regulated sports betting.

Should the court fundamentally side with brand New Jersey, the state would be permitted to repeal PASPA and roll out activities books at its casinos and racetracks.

PASPA is the federal law that prohibits sports betting everywhere in the US but Nevada, Oregon, Delaware and Montana, states that had already legalized and controlled the practice just before 1992, when the bill was enacted.

But New Jersey thinks that PASPA can be an egregious infringement on its Tenth Amendment liberties as well as the rights of all states to control private parties within their borders.

And the proven fact that the highest court in the land has taken this case on, against the advice of the acting solicitor general, implies that at the least several of those judges feel that this can be a compelling argument.

A positive verdict for New Jersey may likely trigger a domino effect, paving the method for other states to reject PASPA too.
