Can I Bet on NFL Games Online From Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont

While the US Supreme Court has now made sports betting legal in the Unite States, those residents of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont will not be able to bet the NFL in any of the state's casinos (or lack thereof) for the upcoming 2018 season.  For now, a few dozen of internationally licensed sportsbooks will accept wagers from these states.

WILL ANY OF THESE STATES ALLOW SPORTS BETTING IN THE NEAR FUTURE?

While Connecticut is unlikely to have sports betting this NFL season, the state plans to offer the activity in its casinos probably by 2019.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy told legislative leaders he will be negotiating a deal with the tribes, but the state legislature also needs to act to ratify Malloy’s deal and legalize sports betting in Connecticut.

Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo signed a $9.6 billion budget for fiscal 2019 on Friday that legalizes sports betting and gives the state 51 percent of the revenues from the wagers.

Maine's chances are a little slim. 

That state would need a new law for casinos.

“I would say we were behind the 8-ball and that’s not uncommon for Maine to be that way,” said State Rep. Donald G. Marean, R-Hollis, who also serves as vice-chair of the U.S. Trotting Association.

Still, it's not entirely out of the question for 2019.

State Rep. Louis Luchini, D-Ellsworth, said he anticipates multiple bills on sports betting will be introduced during the 2019 legislative session.

“In my view under the current law, Maine would have to pass a law to expressly legalize sports betting,” Luchini said.

Then there is Vermont, where the prospect of legalized sports betting in the next year looks less likely.

Gov. Phil Scott is undecided about whether sports betting should be legalized in Vermont following this month's U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down federal limits.

"That's not the answer to Vermont's fiscal issues," Scott said at a Thursday news conference in Burlington, "but I'm willing to listen."

And New Hampshire?

A New Hampshire gambling law makes it clear that sports betting is not allowed at the current time.  Chapter 647 of the Criminal Code explains if caught, you could face a misdemeanor charge.

There is no indication that the state is looking to legalize the activity any time soon.

Needless-to-say, gamblers from these states will need to rely on international websites to place all their NFL bets, not a bad deal considering quite a few have been around for three decades now.
