Today is a monumental day for people who like to bet on sports.
The United States Supreme Court ruled Monday morning that the federal ban on sports betting is unconstitutional. In a 7-2 vote decision, Supreme Court justices threw out the 25-year-old law that prohibited gambling anywhere outside of Nevada.
Each individual state can now do as it pleases when it comes to sports betting, and many are already prepared to jump on board and capitalize on the opportunity. New Jersey, which won the battle to change the law, is expected to have its sports books up and running within the next couple of weeks.
Your move, Kentucky.
