Following the Supreme Court decision in May to allow states to legalize sports gambling, seven states have authorized it and a number of others have introduced legislation to do so. In this discussion, Rev. Richard McGowan, S.J., associate professor of economics at Boston College and treasurer of the Jesuits' Maryland Province, and Victor Matheson, professor of economics at Holy Cross, each will offer differing perspectives on how legalized gambling might affect sports, including college-level athletics, and individual and social well-being.
