Looking to Bet on the Preakness From Minnesota, Missouri, Indiana?  Good Luck

If you live in either Minnesota, Missouri or Indiana, you won’t be able to bet on the Preakness Stakes with any US-based licensed site.  There are alternatives like BetOnline, which operates offshore and has been in business since 1999.   They are one of the largest online gambling websites in the world.  


Pari-mutuel betting on horse racing is one of the forms of gambling permitted in Minnesota but TwinSpires.com, BetAmerica and TVG won't take bets from the state.

Other restricted states that do not allow betting on the Preakness Stakes include the following:

Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, Puerto Rico, The Virgin Islands, Canada

TVG, which is owned by Betfair, does take bets from Idaho, New Mexico and New Jersey residents.  TwinSpires.com does not.

That’s a lot of folks who can’t bet with licensed US horse betting sites but BetOnline is glad to take their business.

These are your latest Preakness Stakes overnight odds heading into Saturday’s big race.

  1. Dynamic Impact 12/1 (opened 18/1, dipped to 10/1)
  2. General A Rod 18/1 (opened 18/1, went to 30/1 long odds Thursday)
