Yet another state is pushing forward in an effort to legalize sports betting ahead of a highly anticipated decision by the U.S. Supreme Court on the matter.

David Payne Purdum of ESPN tweeted on the subject Tuesday morning.

New York is one of more than a dozen U.S. states looking to legalize sports betting.

Noted gambling attorney I. Nelson Rose believes the U.S. Justices will ultimately determine that sports wagering can be permitted at the state level based on initial hearings.

He wrote last week:

It is always difficult to predict a Supreme Court decision based on oral arguments; although, it is clear that at least six Justices don't like PASPA. The conservatives and one or two of the liberals appear ready to declare PASPA unconstitutional in full, because Congress required states to pass laws against sports betting without a coherent federal regulatory policy.

I believe that at least five and perhaps six or more of the Justices will rule that Congress does have the power, under the Interstate Commerce Clause, to regulate and even outlaw sports betting. But in the absence of a coherent federal policy, let alone a comprehensive regulatory system, the states are free to deal with sports betting as they wish.
