In the case of Murphy vs. NCAA, the Supreme Court voted 7-to-2 to end the ban on sports gambling in the Untied States. However, it would take a herculean effort by Congress to pass such a bill before football season begins this fall. As an aside, the Third Circuit noted that the state could have properly exercised its power by repealing all gambling restrictions, as that would not have amounted to "authorizing" sports betting.

So when - and where - can you place your bet?

Smith specializes in sports law. "It's a complicated issue".

With estimated billions of dollars being wagered illegally, Old Dominion University athletic director Wood Selig said he understands states moving to legalize sports gambling, and said that leaves the burden on those in college sports to make sure it doesn't have a negative impact on their industry.
