DraftKings signed a deal with the National Basketball Association (NBA) over the summer.

The US Supreme Court is expected to hear the state of New Jersey’s case whereby it wants to offer legalized sports betting.

The high court will hear New Jersey’s argument beginning December 3 that the ban on sports betting is not legal because it exceeds the authority of Congress.

Should the Supreme Court find in New Jersey’s favor, other states would be legally permitted to allow sports betting as well.
