The United States sports betting market is quickly expanding. This is a significant mark, as it now means that more than half of the US states now offer or plan to offer legal sports betting within their borders.

With this news today, Wyoming became the second US state in 2021 to legalize sports betting, with South Dakota being the other.

There has been some frustration in 2021 when it comes to legalizing sports betting in states like Texas and New York.

Both states have massive numbers of people who want legal sports betting, though both states have significant hurdles to get past before they have legal sports betting on their books.

The good news, however, is that other states have either passed sports betting legislation in 2021 (Wyoming, South Dakota) or are very close to doing so.
