Online Sportsbooks are the Best Way to Bet the Breeders’ Cup

The most exciting way to bet on this year’s Breeders’ Cup is to book a last-minute trip to Churchill Downs in Louisville for two days of racing on Friday, Nov. 2 and Saturday, Nov. 3. All told, there are 14 major graded events on the slate with $30 million up for grabs in total prize money.


Even if you could make your way to Louisville for the biggest betting event of the year in thoroughbred horse racing, the best way to bet on these races is at one of the top online sportsbooks taking action on the 2018 Breeders’ Cup. Just about every major offshore book taking action online for sports also offers fast and easy access to their online racebook for a wide variety of horse betting action at tracks all across North America. At some books, you can also find daily betting odds for race cards in the UK and all around the globe if you really want to expand your scope of betting on horses.

The same online sportsbook you use to bet on the NFL is ready and willing to take your bets for the Breeders’ Cup. It is as simple as clicking into the racebook section of their website to get the ball rolling. Even is you are an avid sports bettor that loves to bet on horses all year round, the same sportsbooks you use to bet on all the games, is your best option for betting on horses.

The obvious reason for this is convenience. All you need to do is tap into your general online betting account to place your bets. You get the same betting odds than you would at the track or some other off-track betting venue with no extra effort. Most sports bettors have a passing interest in betting on horses when the big races roll around, so why not place that action from the same online betting account.

Is a bet where you try to predict the winner of two consecutive races?

The Kentucky Derby is the most heavily bet race of the year, but the Breeders’ Cup is the biggest betting event of the year. With 14 different races, starting with five for up-and-coming juveniles on Friday’s card to the nine races on Saturday leading up to the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic, you are bound to find betting opportunities that offer a good chance to cash a few winning tickets. Everyone of these races features the ‘best of the best’ whether it is a short sprint on turf or the 1 ¼ miles on dirt in the Classic featuring the top three-year old and up thoroughbreds competing for one of the biggest prizes of the year.

Another big reason why online sportsbooks are the best way to bet the Breeders’ Cup is all the promotional incentives they offer to extend your betting bankroll. Just about every major book has built-in incentive offer to also use their racebook for horses. One of the most common promotional offers is a cash-back rebate on all of your daily horse betting volume. Even if you get your clock cleaned on Friday’s first five Breeders’ Cup events, you will have that cash-back rebate in your betting account by the time Saturday’s first race gets underway at 12 p.m. (ET).

Across The Board is one of the most popular betting types. 

When you add cash-back bonuses on all your horse betting volume to the convenience of using your online betting account to place those bets, it is easy to see why the best way to bet on the Breeders’ Cup as well as horse racing in general is at your favorite online sportsbook. This could also be the perfect time to add a new online book to the mix. It never hurts to have multiple online betting outlets for everything you like to bet on over the course of the year.
