The move opens up legal sports betting in New Jersey and beyond, as states can now choose whether to legalize the practice.
"Today the United States Supreme Court issued a clear decision that PASPA is unconstitutional, reversing the lower courts that held otherwise", the prepared missive from NCAA Chief Legal Officer Donald Remy said. The 1992 law barred state-authorized sports gambling with some exceptions.
"The question now is whether Congress will leave the states to make their own choices or will now try to enact some kind of federal regulation of sports betting", Vladeck added. The current illegal sports betting market is worth billions of dollars annually. As a result of the ruling, individual states will now have control over whether to allow sports gambling. The American Gaming Association estimates that Americans illegally wager about $150 billion on sports each year, according to CBS News. National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver has endorsed sports betting, and Major League Baseball has invested in fantasy leagues.
"Our most important priority is protecting the integrity of our games", MLB's statement continued.
The Supreme Court on Monday struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act.

Christie, who left office in January, signed the state's first law legalizingsports betting in 2012 after voters in 2011 overwhelmingly approved an amendment to the state Constitution to allow it.
The Supreme Court is expected to announce its decision by the end of June, though it could do so as early as this Monday.
"The majority relied upon the "anti-commandeering" doctrine, holding that Congress can choose federal policies, but can't dictate to states what their own policies must be", Vladeck said. There are already ample preparations being made for the Supreme Court ruling that could overrule PASPA as unconstitutional. PASPA, Alito wrote, took a different route, regulating the behavior of state governments, an impermissible overreach.
The Supreme Court's court decision reversing that outcome will make it easier to open the door to sports betting. "Betting on sports was betting on human beings, and I thought that was wrong", he explained. It gave the other states one year to legalize such betting, if they wanted to.
