Churchill Downs to offer online sports betting… in New Jersey

Mark Zerof | USA Today

Churchill Downs is not going to sit around and wait for Kentucky to legalize sports gambling. It is already getting in on the action by setting up online wagering on sports in the great state of New Jersey.

According to, Churchill Downs Inc. signed a deal with the Golden Nugget Hotel to enter the market in the Garden State. It also signed a partnership with sports betting platform SBTech to allow online gambling in both Mississippi and Pennsylvania.

Sports betting is simply placing a wager on a sporting event. You are betting that your team, horse, dog, or driver will win. If they do win, so do you! If they lose, you lose your bet amount. Sports betting takes place all over the world, though in the United States this type of betting is not as highly accepted as it is in Europe.

Online sports betting is probably the best option for those who are interesting in trying it for the first time. If you have never tried online sports betting, you are missing so much fun and excitement, and it can all happen in the comfortable surroundings of your home! The art of sports betting can seem confusing at first, but once you are familiar with some of the jargon that is used to explain the concepts and logic behind each type of bet, it is all much easier to understand.

It’s a smart move by Churchill to get in front of the issue, and it explains why its stock saw a significant rise once the Supreme Court announced its ruling on Monday.

Maybe one day we’ll be able to access it here in Kentucky.

      I was giving you the benefit of the doubt and assuming you’re not actually a dumbass. I can admit it when I’m wrong.

    I still won’t be surprised if they try to block any sports betting in Kentucky. Having it in other states doesn’t impact them in Kentucky.
