Sports Betting Itself is Not Illegal

The US code of laws clearly dictates that the owning and operation of a sports book or sports betting shop within the US is illegal. However, nowhere in the statute, or anywhere else in the law for that matter, does it say, or even imply, that betting on sports is illegal. This might sound a bit counter intuitive – though, laws often are – but the basic “gist” of it is that it is illegal to own a sports betting venture, but not illegal to place bets on sports books that are held offshore.
