NEW YORK – On Friday, BetMGM announced that NYRA Bets has become their first official horse race betting partner. This deal occurred just a week before the Belmont Stakes race that will take place on June 5. Now BetMGM users will have access to tons of betting lines and information for the big day as it will now be provided through NYRA Bets.
The Deal Of Two Operators
Live betting will be open to all gamblers with BetMGM on numerous horse races happening worldwide. Fans will be able to stream the races and wager on the latest betting lines at the click of a button. NYRA Bets will offer data and bets through BetMGM on harness, premier thoroughbred, and quarter horse racing being done at over 200 venues around the globe.
“This is the type of partnership that reflects the importance of horse racing within the rapidly evolving sports betting marketplace,” said Tony Allevato, President of NYRA Bets.”BetMGM has consistently led the charge to expand wagering opportunities for their customers, and we are thrilled that NYRA Bets horse racing content will soon be available on BetMGM.”
Horse race betting has been slowly growing in popularity among sports bettors. This partnership stands to gain both operations a larger following which equates to more money in profits for both sides. Since opening in 2016, NYRA Bets has business in thirty states across the nation.
Their presence will receive a boost worldwide, not just in the U.S., as they will have their own section with BetMGM’s mobile sportsbook app that is available in various countries. U.S. races and big events from all over will be covered in their horse section with live streaming, replays, the most up to date stats, and odds for bettors to have access to the best information for gambling on the races available daily.
“We’ve found a great partner in NYRA Bets and look forward to working with them to create a thrilling, interactive experience for horse racing fans on BetMGM,” said Adam Greenblatt, CEO for BetMGM.
Let The Betting Begin
Regulated sports betting has been sweeping the country as more and more states open markets. Partnerships like this will continue to be seen while the industry keeps with its upward trajectory.
All BetMGM users can lay down their first wagers on a big race with NYRA Bets data through the 153rd Belmont Stakes race on Saturday. This race is the third leg of the Triple Crown in 2021. It will be airing on the NBC Network at 6:47 p.m. EST.
Essential Quality is favored to win with odds of (+225). Rombauer is a close second with odds of (+375) and Hot Rod Charlie takes the third spot at (+400). Hot Rod Charlie came in third at the Kentucky Derby and could very well take the Belmont Stakes this Saturday but it’s all a gamble after all, making it anyone’s race.
