Ever made a casual bet on the outcome of a football game with your friends? You’re not alone. Half of all Americans over the age of 15 have made at least one sports bet in the past year.1
Betting on the outcome of professional and amateur games is clearly a big market. But until recently, gambling on sports has been illegal in all but a few states in the U.S. Not anymore. Just a few weeks ago, the Supreme Court struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) that had made gambling on sports illegal. Since then, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Mississippi, and West Virginia have passed bills making betting on sports in their states legal. Right now, Nevada and Delaware have laws that make all forms of sports betting legal, and their citizens are already making (or losing) the big bucks betting on their favorite teams.
How do I make money?
If you live in Nevada or Delaware, you’re already well on your way to be able to make money from betting on sports. In the other four states mentioned above (PA, NJ, WV, MS), it may take awhile for the final regulations to be hammered out, but it will be legal.
If you don’t live in one of those states, don’t worry! The Supreme Court decision means that online and mobile betting is now legal, so there are still a ton of options for you to make money from betting on sports.
