Football Is Done, Here's What's Next In The Sportsbook

February 5, 2013 at 1:56 PM | by | ()

The Super Bowl was the most wagered on sporting event of all time. As usual, the casinos made money which means that most people betting on the game lost. No big deal. We love football and are ready for the next season to begin so we can get back to it. But, that's it for right now. No more football for seven months. So, what now?

Football, pro and college, is the most popular sport to bet on, but that doesn't mean that there aren't other major sports events to bet on in the near future. There is a pretty fun variety of sports to keep us in the sportsbook. The biggest NASCAR race of the year, The Daytona 500, takes place February 24. That will be followed up with NASCAR Weekend which comes to Las Vegas just a few weeks later.

Before the madness in late March, Major League Baseball gets the baseball betting season underway on March 2 with The World Baseball Classic (WBC). This baseball tournament happens every four years and features countries playing one another similar to the World Cup in soccer.

Speaking of soccer, there will be plenty of international soccer friendlies and World Cup qualifying matches that will take place leading into the UEFA championship in May. Right now, the NBA and NHL are getting ready for the second half of their season and will begin their drive for the playoffs.

All of this is just foreplay before we reach March Madness on March 19. The first weekend of March Madness is the second busiest sports weekend in Las Vegas behind the Super Bowl. Parties were already being planned for March Madness before the Big Game was even played.

Football may be gone for a few months, but there is still a great variety of games to watch at the sportsbook.
