Fans bet on Super Bowl in multiple states for the first time
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Football fans are betting legally on the Super Bowl from states other than Nevada for the first time this year.
Sunday's big game is the first major sporting event for sportsbooks in a handful of states that opened after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a ban on sports betting last year.
People lined up at sportsbooks since the morning, picking between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams as well as a wide variety of other outcomes, including whether Tom Brady would throw an interception.
Texas resident Celina Montenegro says this is the third time she's visited Las Vegas during the Super Bowl because it is the best place to watch the game behind being at the stadium. She put money on the Rams.
Meanwhile, two casinos in Rhode Island have been taking plenty of wagers on the Patriots.
