May is a Great Month to be a Bookmaker

One of the most overlooked months of the year for North American facing bookmakers is none other than May, thirty-one action packed days of frenetic gambling.

Savvy bookmakers have caught on to the fact that most sports bettors do not stop betting simply because the NFL, College Football or even College Basketball have ended.

“For us, the second, and sometimes even the single most trafficked single day event is the Kentucky Derby,” remarked Payton O’Brien, Senior Editor of the website. 

While not as big, the Preakness Stakes, held mid-May, is typically the second most trafficked of the yearly horse racing events.

“We are definitely seeing an increase in horse betting traffic year after year,” notes O’Brien.  “This was especially evident with the influx of traffic inquiries for the last Kentucky Derby prep race, the Arkansas Derby.”

May will also feature a wealth of Playoffs games in the NBA and NHL as well as the Players Championship in golf.
