GMA's newly expanded Sports Betting division, headed by John English, Managing Director of Sports Betting and Technology, produced the white paper entitled "An Examination of Sports Betting in America & Forecast of Revenues by State" to highlight the current status of the sports betting market in the US, the process being undertaken to overturn the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), hurdles the industry will face, political climate, and revenue potential for a well regulated sports betting industry. But the state law was immediately challenged by professional sports leagues and the NCAA, which pointed to a federal law passed in 1992 that bans state sports betting with some exceptions.
Gov. Christie is asking the high court to invalidate a 1992 federal law that banned sports wagering in all but a handful of states. In 2011 voters amended the state constitution to authorize the Legislature to legalize sports betting at casinos and racetracks. But the Supreme Court revived the state's hopes in June when the justices said they would take up the case.
New Jerseyargues that under the 10th Amendment, the federal government can not require the state to maintain its own prohibitions on sports wagering. The American Gaming Association says gamblers illegally bet $150 billion on sports games in 2016.
But Christie said after Monday's argument session that with rampant illegal betting on everything from the Super Bowl to March Madness, that concern is laughable, NBC New reported.
New Jersey has spent millions of dollars in legal fees trying to legalize sports betting. Nevada was exempted from the law and three other states - Montana, Delaware, and OR - had already enacted sports lotteries and were allowed to continue to do so. Nevada is the only state where a person can wager on the results of a single game, though the law doesn't cover wagering between friends.

"I don't agree with the current federal law; I'm on the same page as [New Jersey Governor] Chris Christie there". In passing the law, Congress gave New Jersey a yearlong window to authorize sports betting at its casinos, but the state didn't act.
New Jersey wants to overturn PASPA, which makes it unlawful for governmental entities to sponsor, operate, advertise, promote, licence or authorise betting, gambling or wagering schemes that are based on games played by amateur or professional athletes. In 2014, New Jersey tried a different tactic by repealing laws prohibiting sports gambling at casinos and racetracks.
Not a word was spoken-or a question asked-during the arguments about the potential consequences of striking down the law, namely the expansion of sports gambling across the nation.
The governor says if the state is successful in their case "we could have bets being taken in New Jersey within two weeks of a decision being taken by the courts".
