Cubs slugger Kyle Schwarber has heard the news about the federal court's ruling on sports betting, but he won't be partaking any time soon.

The Supreme Court ruled Monday by a 6-3 margin that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, or PASPA, a federal prohibition of state-sanctioned sports betting, was unconstitutional. New Jersey had challenged the law in a bid to allow sports gambling at casinos and racetracks.

The decision not only opens the door for legalized gambling in New Jersey, but also nationwide. Currently, legalized gambling on sports is allowed only in Nevada and a handful of other states where it has been grandfathered in from before the passage of that 1992 law.

Still, Schwarber doesn't think it will directly impact athletes.

"My guess is it will be good for people outside of the game of baseball," Schwarber said, via ESPN. "Obviously, we're not going to do that, we're not going to be betting on baseball. We also know what happened to good old Pete Rose, there. That's a good example of just not to do it, for us."

Schwarber's manager, Joe Maddon, said he supported the ruling.

"As far as I am concerned, it was already legal," Maddon said (via 670 The Score). "If it has been going on in Vegas and every bar room, whether it is in Chicago or Hazelton, it has been a part of our culture. I think it is all out front now. As far as the potential manifestations, in a negative way, I don't really see that. I think it will be controlled properly."

The Braves beat the Cubs 6-5 Monday with Schwarber collecting a hit, a run scored and two walks.
