This year’s Betting on Sports America Conference runs from April 23-26. Hosted by SBC, it looks to be one of the most comprehensive sports betting conferences ever held.
The choice of location echoes the importance of the Eastern states in moving legal sports betting forward. New Jersey is obviously in the vanguard, but Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Delaware, Rhode Island and even Michigan are dragging the focus of sports betting east.
