Where Can I Bet the Arkansas Derby Online From My State?

Betting on the Arkansas Derby is available online from all US states.  Americas Bookie pays full track odds and offers a generous welcome bonus with a maximum of $1500 AND 10% back on net losses monthly.

This is an important prep race leading up to the Kentucky Derby with winners proving especially successful in modern history including the likes of Smarty Jones and Afleet Alex.  It is typically the last major Kentucky Derby prep race that doles out qualifying points to the top finishers, though the 2020 prep schedule has been thrown into disarray due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In fact, the 2020 Arkansas Derby could prove to be the most watched ever.  Not only is it one of the few sporting events actually taking place right now, it will fill in for postponed Kentucky Derby, which takes place September 5.

Since this Grade 1 stakes race has attracted so much interest from trainers with prized three-year old thoroughbreds, it had to be split into two divisions with 11 entries each. The entire race card at Oaklawn on Saturday should be a great live betting event.

Overall Betting Options

The biggest reason to bet on the Arkansas Derby (division 1 and division 2) from your online sportsbook is betting variety. Betting any horse race through the racebook is just like going to the track. You will get the same track odds with the same betting options.

Over on the sportsbook side, you can get fixed odds betting a horse to win through the posted Arkansas Derby futures. For example, famed trainer Bob Baffert’s Nadal should be the favorite to win one of the divisions on the early morning line. If he is set as a 2/1 favorite, you would be able to get +200 odds on the sportsbook’s future list. You could also bet Nadal at the racebook at whatever track odds he eventually goes off at.

2020 Horse Betting Options at Online Sportsbooks

The best feature for betting major graded horse races at the online sportsbooks are added options. Some books may add props options to the race. You should also be able to find betting odds for head-to-head matchups. With that type of bet, your horse only has the beat the horse they are pitted against as opposed to the entire field. This is a great way to add even more excitement to all the action on the track.
