DraftKings signed a deal with the National Basketball Association (NBA) over the summer.

The US Supreme Court is expected to hear the state of New Jersey’s case whereby it wants to offer legalized sports betting.

Should the Supreme Court find in New Jersey’s favor, other states would be legally permitted to allow sports betting as well.
