ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — In the time it takes for a red light to turn green, Leonard Sciascia can get his sports bets made, turn around and head home.

The 39-year-old man from New York City’s Staten Island runs his own business selling advice on which teams to bet on. But when he wants to take his own advice, he needs to leave home and cross the border into New Jersey — the only place near him where sports betting is legal.
===============================================
Online betting & sports betting is legal in NJ but you physically have to be in that state in order to wager. This is creating a growing flux of bettors crossing into NJ from NY, PA, DE & CT. I wonder when the surrounding states take a close look at the money they could be putting into the bank & legalize these types of gambling in their own states.
