ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) -- Football fans have their jerseys on and their wallets open as pro football season arrives in places where sports betting is newly legal.
New Jersey won a landmark U.S. Supreme Court case in May clearing the way for all 50 states to offer legal sports betting if they choose.
There was an hour-long line waiting to place bets at Atlantic City's Ocean Resort Casino as kickoff approached.
Chris Matthews of Clementon, New Jersey put $50 a piece on the Browns, Patriots and Packers.
Robert Stovall of Rahway put $100 on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Phil Henderson of Mahwah put $500 on the other side of that game, picking the New Orleans Saints to win.
Other states where sports betting is currently offered include Nevada, Delaware, Mississippi, and West Virginia.
