NJ will start sports bets on its own

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Sports betting could be up and running this fall in New Jersey under a plan that would defy a federal ban on such wagering in all but four states.
 
    
Gov. Chris Christie, who earlier this year signed a sports betting law, says New Jersey will act on its own to implement sports betting.
 
    
During a speech Thursday in Atlantic City, Christie said he expects the federal government might try to stop the plan. But he's confident the state will prevail in such a scenario.
 
    
The U.S. Department of Justice did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday afternoon.
 
    
Sports bets would be taken at Atlantic City casinos and the state's four horse tracks.
