Indiana Pursues Legal Sports Betting

Share with:

Indiana has thrown its hat into the ring for legal sports betting. SB 405 was drafted by Senator Jon Ford and has similar language to several other states which makes sports betting possible if federal law is changed.

The bill details that the state's riverboats and satellite facilities would be able to accept wagers on the outcome of sporting events.

The US Supreme Court is currently hearing arguments by New Jersey and the NCAA - Christie vs. National Collegiate Athletic Association. A decision is expected by the nation's highest court no later than June of this year. The major pro sports leagues along with the NCAA have argued that widescale legal sports betting would threaten the sanctity of their games

The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) currently limits sports betting to Nevada, Delaware, Oregon, and Montana, though Nevada is the only state that offers straight up sports betting across all sports. New Jersey has argued that PASPA is unconstitutional.
