7 sports betting stocks that will shine beyond the madness of March
One of the many consequences of the new coronavirus has been the cessation of live sports. For athletes, one of the most missed events was the NCAA basketball tournament affectionately known as March Madness.
But in addition to missing out on the entertainment that sport offers, cities and states have realized, if they hadn’t already, that sport is an economic necessity.
Live sports may also be a key to their post-pandemic future. But it goes beyond hotels and restaurants.
Sports betting has become big business. Currently, 25 states and the District of Columbia have legalized sports betting either by law or by ballot. This list is likely to grow longer. Many states are facing budget deficits and want to legalize sports betting for the revenue they could earn from it.
And it’s not just about allowing players to place bets through a bookmaker in a casino. The real driver of this is mobile sports betting. According to the American Gaming Association, more than 47 million people are expected to place bets during the NCAA basketball tournament, with about a third of those bets (17.8 million) being placed online.
To help you take advantage of this ever-emerging trend, we’ve put together this special presentation. Here, we’ll highlight seven sports betting stocks that are expected to generate significant income during March Madness and beyond.
