  • The Golden Gate Fields play host to eight separate horse races today.
  • In one of them, Bulletproof One is a -200 favorite against the entire field.
  • In soccer news, there are two matches in the Belarussian soccer league today, and both are interesting betting opportunities.

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - The Daily Sports Betting Preview is back, with some interesting under the radar betting opportunities once again.

First, the preview checks out some horse racing, courtesy of the Golden Gate Fields in the Bay Area of California. There are multiple races happening at the Fields today, so horse race bettors are in for a treat.

Second, and finally, there is some movement in terms of major sports - Belarus’ premier soccer league, the Vysshaya Liga, has two matches today and each of them is an interesting betting opportunity.

Without further ado, let’s get started.

Golden Gate Fields Horse Betting

San Francisco’s Golden Gate Fields will play as host to eight separate horse races today. These races are mostly smaller ones, but don’t let that fool you - they’re an excellent horse betting opportunity.

The earliest race starts at 4:15 p.m. EST, and the latest race starts at 7:54 p.m. EST. Due to their west coast time zone, these races will be happening at a premium time slot across America.

There is one of these races that is especially worth highlighting - and it is one of the most interesting races in a while.

Here are the odds for race 8, the last of the races to be run today:

Golden Gate Fields Horse Race 8:

  • 2 - Bulletproof One -200
  • 8 - Cakewalk +450
  • 7 - Pentewan +800
  • 5 - Pearl Dragon +900
  • 4 - Warm Summer +1400
  • 6 - Smoking Hot Bobbie +1600
  • 1 - Habobanero +2000
  • 3 - Sheza Girly Girl +2000
  • 9 - Anna Lee Encore +2500

What makes this race so interesting is that there is one horse who is favored over the entire field, and that means that there are some really interesting odds for basically every other horse.

The horse that is favored against the field, Bulletproof One, is a well-known horse on the California horse racing circuit.

Bulletproof One is fresh off of a victory at this same racing grounds, only a few weeks ago on March 5, 2020 and is looking to add another notch to his proverbial belt.

Being favored by this much against the field is fairly rare, but Bulletproof One has done everything possible to earn it.

There is a lot going on with these odds, but any time a horse is favored vs. the entire field, it is a noteworthy occurrence. Bettors should take notice of it whether to bet on that horse or to bet against it.

Belarussian Soccer Betting

Belarus’ premier soccer league, the Vysshaya Liga, is still playing despite the COVID-19 outbreak across the world. This is about the only real soccer betting opportunity left.

This is undoubtedly good news for sports starved people across the world, in a certain sense.

There are two matches occurring today, March 27, 2020, in the Vysshaya Liga and both of them are fairly interesting.

In match one, Zhodino takes on Belshina Bobruisk. Zhodino enters the game as a favorite on the spread by one goal and Zhodino (-1) has -120 odds, reflecting some shading towards them.

Zhodino is significantly favored on the moneyline with -205 odds to win the match outright. Meanwhile, Belshina Bobruisk has +550 money line odds and a draw is at -335 odds.

The over/under line for the match is set at 2.5 goals with a lot of shading toward the under. The under has -140 odds while the over has +105 odds - the sportsbooks expect this one to be quite low scoring.

The second match in today’s Vysshaya Liga offerings is between Rukh Brest and Energetik-BGU Minsk.

This match actually appears to be incredibly close, and that means there is some value to be found in the lines. Right now, the spread going either way in this match is actually zero points - a rare occurrence. Brest (+0) is -120, while Minsk (+0) is -110.

However, on the moneyline, the odds get a little more profitable - and this is absolutely worth considering if someone were to bet on this game.

On the moneyline, Brest has +155 odds, while Minsk has +160 odds, and a draw has +245 odds.

This combines with the spread of zero to make it much more profitable to be the moneyline odds on either team than the spread odds.

The over/under for this game is currently set at three goals, but it wouldn’t be shocking to see that move - it’s shaded heavily toward the under at the moment.

The Over (3.0) has +110 odds, while the Under (3.0) has -140 odds.

These are both interesting betting opportunities, and bettors would be well advised to take advantage, especially in these times when the next betting opportunity might be scarce.
