Sports Bettors Turn to Horse Racing and Casino Games at Online Sportsbooks

While every avid sports bettor had plans of betting on this year’s NCAA Tournament the second half of March, the current outbreak of the coronavirus put a quick end to those plans.

In an effort to combat the spread by limiting wide-scale social contact, just about every major sports league and sporting event has been grounded for the near future.

The overall situation is extremely unfortunate on a global scale. Countless individuals, companies and communities have been impacted by the actual and potential effects of this virus.

As a means to replace all the lost social interaction and comradery generated by live sporting events, the whole online sportsbook industry has dialed-up its efforts to find alternative ways to entertain anyone looking for distractions during these hard and difficult times.

The first online betting option that can help fill the vast void are each online sportsbook’s daily horse racing cards. As well, the wide range of live and virtual casino games offered at our trusted online sportsbooks will put all the action of a Vegas casino in the palm of your hand or screen.




Many of the top Thoroughbred and harness racing tracks across the country have plans to press on with daily live race cards. A small sample of the race tracks with scheduled live racing this week include:

> Fairgrounds- March 18 thru March 21

> Oaklawn Park- March 19 & March 20

> Aqueduct- March 20

> Tampa Bay Downs- March 18 & March 20

> Gulfstream Park- March 18 thru March 20

This is just a small sample of Thoroughbred tracks that remain open for business with no live crowds.

Online books also offer fast and easy access to harness racing tracks such as Dover Downs, Northfield Park and Pompano ParkYou can still bet on Greyhounds at Derby Lane and Orange Park.

The other great aspect of betting the races at your favorite online sportsbook is access to international racetracks as well. The UK is a continuous hot spot for horse racing. Hereford and Southwell come to mind.

The best course of action for finding horse racing action is to check the daily racebook calendar at your online sportsbook of choice.

About the Author

A big part of the services that my marketing company, Blue Pointe Advisors, LLC offers is written content for sports betting websites.  I have been working as a full-time sports betting writer for the past nine years following a previous career in the field of sales and marketing.

I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to write about my true passion in life; the world of sports. I also enjoy concentrating the bulk of my pieces towards the betting angle in sports.

It is always a challenge to take past results and current form to try and correctly determine a future result. Sports brings out the unpredictability in what should be a fairly predictable outcome based on the stats, facts and recent trends in a particular matchup. The one thing that I have learned over the past decade or so is that when it comes to betting on sports there is no such thing as a lock.

The main objective with my writing style is to create insightful articles on a wide variety of sporting topics that can provide an edge to today's sophisticated online player. While there are times when my predictions fall well short of the actual outcome, I still enjoy trying to come up with a logical explanation to support my views on every pick I make.

My love of sports started a long time ago when I was just a kid growing up just outside Philadelphia. While I was a big Phillies, Flyers and 76ers fan, my number one team was always the Eagles. My dad was a season ticket holder from 1961 to 2002 and I would honestly say that he missed less than a handful of games than more than a few dismal seasons.

I was fortunate enough to go to a number of Eagles’ games back in the day including the 1980 NFC Championship when Wilbert Montgomery ran roughshod over the bitter rival Dallas Cowboys to lead Philly to their first appearance in a Super Bowl. Flash forward 40 years later and am I still celebrating the thrilling victory over New England in Super Bowl LVII. I know that my dad was smiling down on that one.
