Is sports betting permitted online?
No, despite efforts to push it through the legislature. California is potentially the biggest prize in the US, so expect efforts to continue.

California has talked about legalizing online poker for the best part of a decade, but disputes between lawmakers, tribes and PokerStars have slowed progress.
