History of a Failed Law
In 1992, Congress passed the
Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), effectively
outlawing sports betting in most of the U.S. Four states that
previously allowed sports betting were grandfathered into the law:
Nevada, Delaware, Montana, and Oregon. Today, however, Nevada is the only state in which traditional, full-fledged betting on college and professional sports through licensed bookmakers is legal.
Sports betting today: wildly popular…and growing
Despite PASPA’s attempt to largely prohibit sports betting in the U.S., Americans have embraced it and continue to place bets on their favorite sports and teams. But instead of taking place in a regulated environment backed by consumer protections, the vast majority of sports betting today takes place underground. $58 billion will be wagered on NFL and college football games this season – $56 billion of it through illegal channels.
Changing public attitudes
When PASPA was enacted nearly 25 years ago, supporters expressed serious doubts about whether sports betting and the integrity of games could co-exist. But today, 72 percent of avid sports fans want to end the federal ban, and more than ever, Americans believe that states and tribal sovereign governments should have the right to choose whether or not to conduct sports betting.
Professional sports leagues softening stance
Once staunchly opposed to sports betting, professional sports leaders have recently softened their positions on sports betting.
