ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — A day before New Jersey's governor makes his state's first legal wager on a sporting event, sports betting will be the main topic at a major gambling industry conference in Atlantic City.

The East Coast Gaming Congress on Wednesday will discuss where sports betting stands and what might be next now that New Jersey has won a U.S. Supreme Court case clearing the way for all 50 states to legalize it if they choose.

Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy plans to make the first legal bet Thursday morning at Monmouth Park racetrack in Oceanport. The state's casinos are waiting for guidance from state gambling regulators as to when they can begin taking sports bets.
