NJ Sports Betting Law is Hypocritical, Says Leagues

The major professional sports leagues and the NCAA say New Jersey’s proposed sports betting law is hypocritical because it prohibits gambling on New Jersey college games but allows it on all other college and pro contests.

The NCAA and the professional baseball, football, basketball and hockey leagues are suing to block New Jersey’s sports betting law from taking effect, possibly as soon as December.

In their response to New Jersey’s efforts to have the case dismissed, the leagues note New Jersey says sports betting won’t harm the pro or college leagues. Yet the leagues say the state forbids gambling involving New Jersey college teams or any college game played in New Jersey.

The state argues billions are already bet illegally on sports, and that hasn’t made the leagues crumble.
