U.S. Sports Betting Market Tracker

On May 14, 2018 the US Supreme Court struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Act (PASPA), a federal law that banned sports betting in most US States. This decision enables states to decide whether to legalize sports betting. We estimate GGR could range from $19B-$33B assuming that most states enact some form of sports betting, mobile betting is generally adopted, and that there is a significant shift from illegal sports betting to legal sports betting. According to the American Gaming Association approximately $150B is wagered illegally on sports in the US on an annual basis (~$7.5B-$9B in GGR).

Many states have already begun the legislative process to legalize sports betting. The table below illustrates various data points that we believe are relevant to the potential outcome of each state’s decision.

Spectrum Gaming Capital will track legislation and update this table on an ongoing basis.
