While the US Supreme Court has now made sports betting legal in the Unite States, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska residents will not be able to bet the NFL in any of the state's casinos for the upcoming 2018 season.  Do not dispair as a few dozen of internationally licensed sportsbooks will accept wagers throughout the Football season.

Oklahoma - Any effot to offer sports betting in the state will likely involve compacts with the tribes.

"If we do it, there's going to be a lot of debate over whether or not this is the direction we need to go," said House Majority Floor Leader Jon Echols, R-Oklahoma City. "I don't think it's a foregone conclusion that this is something Oklahoma will do. But the foregone conclusion is that it is something Oklahoma will analyze."

Kansas and Missouri - Neither are likely to legalize sports betting any time soon.

Missouri's legislature has already recessed for the year. Lawmakers looking to allow sports betting in the "Show Me State" were looking to do so via the riverboat casinos.

In Kansas, Rep. Jan Kessinger, R-Overland Park, offered a sports betting bill that received a hearing but failed to gain much traction.

“This is the trigger,” he said, “the catalyst for Kansas to be able to put together a good sports betting bill.”

“I think there will be some sensitivity (to sports betting), but I don’t know how much,” said Rep. Ron Highland, R- Wamego, who is the vice chairman of the House Federal and State Affairs committee. “And then what the predictive revenue is going to be is one of the deciding factors.”

A representative with Hollywood Casino at Kansas Speedway opposed the bill, saying the state could wait another year.

Nebraska - “Sports betting is illegal in Nebraska and we have no plans to change that,” Governor Pete Ricketts said following the Supreme Court ruling.

He added: “For every dollar in tax revenue, you spend three in social services” to combat the effects of gambling.
