No In-State Sportsbooks in Massachusetts 

From WBUR:

Gov. Charlie Baker and a handful of lawmakers have filed their own proposals laying out how a legal sports betting industry should be shaped and regulated in Massachusetts. Baker's bill would prohibit any betting on college or amateur sports, at least one proposal would prohibit betting on contests that involve Massachusetts colleges and others would make the full range of NCAA sporting events open to bets.

Baker's bill would not allow betting on any college contests, and Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Mike Kennealy said the governor is trying to take a "measured approach" by limiting betting to professional sports.

"I would say we're trying to strike a balance here between entering the market and realizing new revenue on one hand and on the other hand taking a somewhat conservative approach," Kennealy said. "We would argue the best way to do this is on professional sports."
