Watch: Illegal March Madness gambling to top $10 billion

The American Gaming Association expects that only 3% of the wagers will be legal. In 2017, 24 million people paid around $3 billion into bracket pools alone.

A decision expected in June could change the legality of NCAA gambling forever. Would you put money up?
