Report: U.S. Sports Betting Revenue Poised To Top $5B, Take Global Lead By 2023

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

June 26, 2018: The sports landscape in the U.S, was repainted in May when the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act opened the gate for legalized sports betting in the U.S, with individual states are deciding whether or not, and how, to enact the process.

How much of a market will this create?

“The U.S. Supreme Court's historic May 14 ruling to overturn a federal ban will create a legal sports wagering market worth between $3.1-$5.2 billion in annual revenue by 2023,” according to a new report from GamblingCompliance, a leading provider of business intelligence to the global sports betting industry.

Revenue is defined here as “the amount retained by sports wagering operators after all winnings bets are paid. Revenue is not handle, or the total amount staked by bettors.”

"After the Supreme Court's ruling, the U.S. sports betting market is set to quickly become one of the largest in the world, surpassing the U.K. and potentially China within five years," James Kilsby, managing director-Americas for GamblingCompliance and co-author of the report (with Daniel Stone), said in a statement.

The new GamblingCompliance report comes after New Jersey and Delaware recently became the first two states to start accepting sports bets in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling.

Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, West Virginia and potentially New York, despite lawmaking setbacks this past week, are all set to follow before the close of the year.

“At least seven states are already primed to join Nevada in offering full sports betting, while 25-37 states are expected to have lawful wagering within five years,” according to GamblingCompliance’s “U.S. Sports Betting: Sizing the Post-PASPA Opportunity.”

GamblingCompliance said it expects the Northeast region to become the “epicenter of sports betting expansion in the years immediately following PASPA's demise.”

New York is projected to become by far the largest U.S. sports wagering market by 2023, while annual revenues in New Jersey, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania are also predicted to surpass those of Nevada.

New York could surpass $700 million in annual gross gaming revenue. New Jersey and Pennsylvania also seen topping $300 million each in revenue within five years.

As a result of lobbying demands of New York-based NBA and MLB, New York could also become the “first state to grant leagues a cut of betting handle and require use of their official data,” according to GamblingCompliance.

"A state-by-state expansion of sports betting is going to be complicated, with various stakeholders including gaming and fantasy-sports operators, major sports leagues, Indian tribes and others likely to lobby for divergent policies as they bid to shape legislation and regulations in their favor," said Kilsby.

According to Washington D.C.-based GamblingCompliance, revenue from legal sports betting will reach almost $700 million in 2019, divided about evenly between online and casino take.

The figure is estimated to rise to about $1.8 billion in 2020, the majority from online, followed by casino and a small retail segment.

"The U.S. sports betting market is set to quickly become one of the largest in the world, surpassing the U.K. and potentially China within five years."

In 2021, revenue could reach $2.9 billion, again with the majority from online sources.

The number will top $4 billion in 2022, with more than half from online.

However, although California, Florida and Texas would be three of the most lucrative markets for U.S. sports betting, “local legal and lobbying obstacles are likely to compromise legislative approval or limit the scope of wagering in those states by excluding online and mobile betting,” according to GamblingCompliance.

"We expect sports betting bills to come thick and fast when state legislatures reconvene for their 2019 legislative sessions," Kilsby said.
