Federal ban on sports betting upheld by appeals panel

“We are allowed to do that.”

A federal appeals court panel in Philadelphia on Tuesday upheld the federal ban on sports betting in all but four states that had met a 1991 deadline to legalize it. State Sen. Ray Lesniak predicted that will happen shortly.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – New Jersey has struck out again in its efforts to legally offer sports betting.

The appeals court judges who agreed with ban are Maryanne Trump Barry, the sister of Republican presidential candidate and Donald Trump, and Marjorie Rendell. New Jersey was not one of them.

But the 2-1 ruling left the door open for New Jersey to further appeal the matter to the full Third Circuit court. All Rights Reserved. CBS New York reports the NCAA and the four major pro sports leagues have opposed the state’s efforts. A judge ruled in October the leagues have shown that they would be irreparably harmed if the state’s casinos and racetracks were permitted to allow sports betting.

“We repealed a law for sports betting at casinos and racetracks, and that does not violate” the federal ban, he said. “As the AGA leads an industry-wide task force to study sports betting, we will assess the implications of the court’s decision as the gaming industry continues to develop innovative ways to provide products and experiences that meet consumers’ demands.”

New Jersey has been trying since 2009 to offer legal sports betting at its casinos and racetracks to help both struggling industries.

At issue in the appeal was whether a 2014 New Jersey law repealing prohibitions against sports gambling violates a 1992 federal ban in all states except Nevada, Oregon, Montana and Delaware.

Lesniak said the appeals panel got it wrong.. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Geoff Freeman, president of the American Gaming Association, the casino industry’s national trade organization, said the court ruling cries out for closer scrutiny of the issue.

“With Americans betting at least $140 billion on sports illegally each year, it’s clear that current law is not achieving its intended result,” he said. Judge Julio Fuentes dissented.

They must be up to date with all trades, injuries, trends and current statistics. Baseball handicapping is not all based on skill. My feelings on this are not one individual can be giving that title. You just start analyzing ball games and select your winners. Be consistent with your bets and use proper money management and you will the best baseball handicapper.. Many get lucky but luck only happens occasional. That is the easy part just about all handicappers claim to be the best.

According to Wikipedia: Baseball Handicapping is the practice of assigning advantage through scoring compensation or other advantage given to different contestants to equalize the chances of winning. This formula must be battle tested. For effective baseball handicapping you need to follow a formula. Remember to distinguish the difference between just lucky and picking the right side. Don’t confuse being lucky for being good.
