Legal Sports Betting Coming to the US Nationwide


Gambling market analysis reveals that the market for legal sports betting could be as much as $60-B annually nationwide.

Analyst David Katz of the Jefferies & Company is projecting modest near-term positive effects on the gambling industry following Monday’s Supreme Court ruling.

Mr. Katz’s analysis says regional casino operators Penn National Gaming (NASDAQ:PENN) and Caesars Entertainment (NASDAQ:CZR) could be possible big winners.
