While the US Supreme Court has now made sports betting legal in the Unite States, Ohio residents may not be able to bet the NFL in any of the state's casinos, race tracks, even 7-Elevens . for the upcoming 2018 season.  There is still a possibility it can come to fruition in the Buckeye State however. For now, a few dozen of internationally licensed sportsbooks will accept wagers on this year's World Cup

WILL THESE STATES WELCOME SPORTS BETTING IN THE NEAR FUTURE?

Ohio - Some Ohio legislators have introduced a bill that would legalized sports wagering in the Buckeye State. 

Senate Bill 316, introduced Thursday (July 12), is sponsored by Sens. John Eklund, a Munson Township Republican, and Sean O'Brien, a Bazetta Democrat.  O'Brien would like to have specifics in the bill by August or September.

Unlike a number of states where legislative bodies have recessed for the year, Ohio lawmakers are still in full work mode.

"My thinking right now is we already have casinos and racinos set up," O'Brien said. I'd kind of like to keep it in those institutions because they are set up for gaming. I'm not sure we want it in every 7-Eleven ...and every bar.

“What we're finding is that it's not a huge amount of income, but it's a decent size of income," O'Brien said.

It remains to be determined the type of taxation that will be imposed on the sportsbooks.

Taxes on casinos are 33 percent of gross revenue. On racinos, it's roughly 33.5 percent.

O'Brien's district is close to Pennsylvania, which has legalized sports betting, but nobody wants to operate there due to the high tax being imposed.

Needless-to-say, gamblers from these states will need to rely on international websites to place all their NFL bets
