Supreme Court To Hear Arguments In States' Rights Sports Betting Case

The Supreme Court is going to have to decide if it's within states' rights to cash in on sports betting. 

Oral arguments are today in a case essentially between New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and both college and professional sports leagues.
