Can PR legally place sports bets or gamble online?

I searched through old posts and Google but couldn't find any concrete information on this topic. Basically trying to understand if any of the following activities could jeopardize a permanent residents status or their ability to naturalize.

1) Can a permanent resident take part in sports betting if they reside in a state where it is legal? Of course assuming that they pay taxes on any winnings, bet through an authorized sports book, etc. I couldn't find any sort of federal law pointing to the contrary.

2) Same question as above for other forms of online gambling, such as poker. It appears this may be more complicated, as it seems that online poker and other forms of online gambling are still illegal at the federal level.
