Column: Sports betting is here, lucratively and ambiguously

In a Monday morning decision, the United States Supreme Court ruled against the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA), which had made it illegal for states to authorize betting on sports. In the eyes of the courts, that provision was unconstitutional, and sports now have their own modus operandi in who, what, when, where, and how in establishing sports betting in their state, if they choose to at all.
