What Has Happened Since PASPA Repeal

Since the U.S. Supreme Court paved the way for individual states to allow for legal sports betting, more than 25 states have authorized sports betting, plus Washington DC and Puerto Rico. Seventeen states allow mobile sports betting, giving 27% of the US population access to online betting.

How popular is online sports betting? More than 80% of sports betting in 2020 was online. The most bet on sport by percentage of total handle is football (44% in 2020) and approximately $52 billion has been wagered since May 2018. The total net revenue during that time is $3.5 billion.

With New York and (perhaps) Florida looking to join in, those number will continue their meteoric rise.
