Whether it be American Football, horse racing, golf or indeed any other sport, the American sporting calendar looks full to the brim of excitement and entertainment. Here’s what a sporting fan can look forward to in the USA in 2020.
Triple Crown Horse Racing
The summer of 2020 does not get any more thrilling for horse racing fans. With the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes – or, in racing terms the Triple Crown – taking place in September now – racing and betting enthusiasts will not be disappointed.
The Triple Crown has been won just 13 times in its history. The first came in 1919 with Sir Barton and the most recent in 2018 as Justify romped home. Game Winner appears to be the best to win all three with odds of 40/1. Racehorse Improbable also looks a decent punt at 66/1, but you can monitor the odds at online casino US sites as the Crown approaches.
The Super Bowl
The Super Bowl is one of the most celebrated events in the world, never mind just North America.
The Super Bowl will hopefully go ahead in the New Year giving sports fans across the world something to look forward to.
When the golfing calendar is sent out, the event that the majority look out for is the Masters. The toughest and most entertaining competition of the professional golfing year, the Masters has everything, even that elusive green jersey.
The Masters will now take place in September at the Augusta National Golf Club with Tiger Woods the reigning champion – 22 years after securing his first Masters. Woods is 10/1 with gambling and casino games sites to defend his title with favourite Rory McIlroy not far ahead at 9/1.
The Indianapolis 500 – or, simply the Indy 500 – is THE event for racing fans. With 33 cars racing 200 laps on a 2.5 mile circuit in a 257,000-capacity stadium – the world’s largest spectator sporting facility – everything is on a huge scale. This includes the astonishing $2.5 million prize money.
The U.S Open
It is the final competition that makes up the tennis Grand Slam and therefore, arguably, the most important.
A $57 million prize fund is an incredible amount of money; no wonder then that viewing figures and attendance records continue to tumble as American tennis’ standout competition continues to pull in the interest.
