Governor Charlie Baker released a plan legalizing sports gambling in Massachusetts. The proposal wouldย allow fans to bet on games at casinos or on their smartphones. If it moves ahead, Massachusetts would not be aloneโ€”several states moved to allow sports betting after theย US Supreme Court decision last year that allowed the practice to expand beyond Nevada. For a local perspective, Carrie Saldo spoke with Ryan McCollum, a political consultant who has followed this issue, and Kevin McAllister, Chairman of the Sports Management Department at Springfield College.
