    Court Denies Delaware's
    Bid For Single-Game Bets
    The state of Delaware’s plan to allow single-game sports betting at its three racinos receives a potentially fatal blow yesterday, as the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals rules the state would be violating federal law if such gambling occurs. The ruling in favor of the major pro sports leagues and the NCAA seems to come out of left field, as the court was expected to only rule on the NFL’s request for a preliminary injunction. However, with the state not disputing the facts of the case, the three-judge panel indicates the case deals with a “simple matter of law they could rule on immediately.” Delaware will maintain its ability to offer parlay bets through a loophole in a ’92 federal bill banning sports gambling. The state has the ability to appeal this ruling to a higher court, but legal experts say the chances of a reversal are slim at best.
