In this photograph taken with a fisheye lens, the exterior view of Capital One Arena is seen, Saturday, March 16, 2019, in Washington. As the NCAA prepares to stage its first basketball championships since the Supreme Court allowed legal sports betting in any state that wants it, the organization remains opposed to gambling on its events. But it’s not denying reality, either. The NCAA had a longtime ban on bringing its championships to places where gambling on sports was legal. That was suspended last year in the wake of the Supreme Court decision. This year, three women’s games will be played in Mississippi, where people have been betting on college sports since last summer, and men’s games will be played in Washington at Capital One Arena, which could have a full-service onsite sportsbook by this time next year under a new law.
