More Sports Betting Opportunities Still Under Consideration In NJ
New Jersey was the first state to allow for sports bets after the Supreme Court overturned the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) barring the practice in 2018. But it still forbids bets on in-state colleges.
That could change this year.
A move is afoot in the state Legislature to allow for bets on in-state collegiate athletic events. The Senate passed legislation earlier this year 36-1 and it now goes before the Assembly for consideration.
