Conservative radio host Wayne Allyn Root predicts that the US Supreme Court will ultimately allow legalized sports betting when they present their final decision some time next spring or summer.

Root was the opening speaker for Donald Trump's kick-off rally in Las Vegas during the 2016 presidential campaign and remains a devoted supporter of the US President today.

He also comes from the world of sports wagering.

Writing for the Las Vegas Review Journal Sunday, Wayne had this to offer:

Here’s another prediction. The U.S. Supreme Court will soon rule in favor of New Jersey on the issue of legal sports gambling, thereby ushering in legalization in many states.

Long before my political career, I made my living as a sports handicapper, with more than 3 million clients and callers over the years. Back in 1977, the local New York newspapers ran a story about my budding career titled, “The Betting Whizkid.” In that article from 40 years ago, a 16-year old Wayne Root talked about my dream — the nationwide legalization of sports betting. It took a long while, but my lifelong dream is about to be realized.
