New Jersey College Sports Betting Facing Uphill Battle

New Jersey probably will not see the expansion of gambling in NovemberSince the proposed state constitutional amendment will not include the necessary public support, a recent FDU poll suggests.

36% against Betting on local college teams

The proposed measure to allow college sports betting involving local teams faces a difficult battle in the upcoming November referendum as two thirds voters currently oppose this solution, while only fourth advocates changing the state constitution. According to a poll 36% of respondents believe that betting on matches involving local sports teams should not be allowed, instead 26% either he refused to answer or he was unsure whether to support the measure or not.

Unlike professional sports betting which has been allowed since the fall of PASPA in 2018 and Governor Phil Murphy signed the Sports Betting Act, Garden State still prohibits betting on any competitions that involve a state school, as well as on any college sports events that take place in that state.

In the event of an agreed traffic in junemost able Assembly voted to add the means to the vote in November after the Senate bill was passed with 36-1 votes.

According to Dan Cassino of Fairleigh Dickinson University, professor of government and politics and executive director of the plebiscite, Sal is far from gaining the necessary public support to pass the vote, but the poll suggests it has the potential to do so.

Dan Cassino noted that the poll found many voters still undecided. Proponents of the measure must obtain approval by November to ensure that the measure obtains voters' approval.

The state ruled out sports betting in college in the original bill due to the prevailing public belief that since student athletes are not paid, they may be more vulnerable to pressure from organizations and individuals wishing to influence the outcome of a given game. However, this argument is no longer valid, following the Supreme Court ruling and the revision of the NCAA rules that allowed student athletes to receive wages.

By adding benefits for New Jersey casinos as all bets should go through one of the land-based gambling establishments or an internet operator linked to the casino or racetrack, the proponents of the bill will try to convince the public to do so.

Young people are more likely to vote for this measure. The poll showed after 36% respondents under 35 he replied that he would support the proposal, but only % older respondents said they would be in favor of this measure.

Considering the fact that older and better educated voters may be disproportionate in the non-voluntary elections, and this is the case in November 2021, the chances of passing the measure decrease, especially after just 22% of people with higher education in the survey supported this.
