With the U.S. Supreme Court ruling to allow sports betting in all 50 states back in May, Massachusetts can now open sportsbooks within its borders, but will they?  For now, a few dozen offshore sports betting sites are accessible within Massachusetts to bet the Super Bowl.

From ESPN.com: "In February 2018, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission released a comprehensive 31-page white paper to provide a "roadmap for those seeking to learn about the current landscape of the sports betting discussion in the country and its possibilities in Massachusetts." In January 2018, Senate bill 2273 was floated to study sports betting. A different bill to legalize and regulate sports betting was introduced November 2018. Massachusetts was one of the first jurisdictions to address the legality of daily fantasy sports and could conceivably move quickly on the sports betting front too. In January 2019, a number of sports betting legalization bills were introduced."

There are reports that many gamblers in Massachusetts are flocking to place their bets on New England to win the 2019 Super Bowl in one of two sportsbooks based out of neighboring Rhode Island.  They were among the first states to open sportsbooks following the U.S. Supreme Court landmark decision.
