Online Gambling Props on Boxing & Kentucky Derby

The random scheduling of sporting events has been an issue for sports books who work hard to garner the attention of bettors and offer odds that reflect the interest and momentum. What happens in Vegas doesn’t mean it always has to stay in Vegas as in the situation with the big fight coming up between Mayweather-Pacquiao and the other huge event known as the Kentucky Derby.

One of the most important horse racing events on the planet happens on the same day as the Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Manny Pacquiao battle on May 2nd 2015. Sports books are taking the gambling conflict in stride offering odds on both events and satisfying the betting needs of fans of the Kentucky Derby as well as those who are watching the pugilistic event. Some odds makers are even offering cross reference betting on the winners of the horse race and the fight combination prop bets.

It has been suggested that gamblers take advantage of this rare betting event. American Pharaoh, the early betting favorite at the Derby, may win the race and Mayweather  the fight. Having Pacquaio score a knockout in the early rounds and then seeing an early long shot like Ocho Ocho Ocho win the race at 40/1 would be another score for the would be punter.

Bettors are also going to have fun with other possible prop bets available that include those associated with NBA and NHL playoff events coming up. Online sports books are looking at potential wagering volumes that could rival even the betting on the Super Bowl. While the big fight in Vegas definitely will has the spotlight it is a sure thing that those who love the sports of kings will be attracted to the horse race outcome. This is an exciting time to keep up to date on any changes involving the horses, the boxers, the hockey players and all the other sporting events coming up in May.
