Should Sports Betting Be Legal in Texas?

Is it finally time to legalize sports betting in Texas? Sure!

It’s a discussion we have every time the Big Game is played: Should sports betting be legal in Texas? I myself am not a big gambler, mainly because I tend to lose, but my wife, now she seems to have all the luck.

Back in January, Legal Sports Report published an article in which they claimed the governor’s office had sought the advice of lobbyists and regulators in states like New Jersey on how best to legalize sports betting. There would certainly be hurdles to legalizing the practice here, but Scott Braddock, editor with Texas political news site Quorum Report, tells our sister station that Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick might be willing to budge if pro-betting legislation gets traction in the legislature.


Mattress Mack should have just been able to place that bet from the comfort of his own…mattress if he wanted to. I find it kind of weird that we live in the United States, but each state has different laws from each other. So what’s legal in Colorado is still illegal in Texas. Maybe that’ll change in the near future!
