Top U.S. Sporting Events of 2022

Draftkings is already a well-known online casino site that has gained massive popularity within the industry. As of November 2021, it has been given the license to operate an online sportsbook within the U.S., and the company has wasted no time in creating mobile sports betting app that includes all the top sporting events in the coming year.

An easier way to find players’ favorite events that they would like to bet on, information that is conveyed in simple language, and variety and flexibility when it comes to wagering are just some of the things you can expect when using their Sportsbook.

Super Bowl 2022

The first and most important event that players will be able to wager on is the Super Bowl 2022.  It’s all happening at the SoFi stadium in Inglewood, California on Sunday 13 February. Due to the season’s longer game program, this is the latest the Super Bowl has ever taken place- it usually occurs over the end of January or the first week of February.

The Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs are competing for the top spot as the favorite, but the Green Bay Packers and Buffalo Bills should not be discounted yet. Some fresh young blood to also keep an eye on is the Arizona Cardinals and New England Patriots.

Spectators and audiences alike can look forward to the highly anticipated halftime show for Super Bowl 56, which includes performances by Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, and Eminem.

Masters 2022

Traditionally held at the Augusta National Golf Club, the 2022 U.S. Masters will run from 4 April- 10 April. There are nineteen qualifying categories from the previous year, and there has been no official word regarding any changes for this year, so it will most likely remain so. This means there is a total of ninety-eight invitees, fifteen of which are past champions that did not compete in 2021. Thus, eighty-three golfers comprised of pros and amateurs will be playing.

Hailing from Spain, the favorite (with closing odds to win sitting at +800), is Jon Rahm, followed closely by Jordan Spieth who is tied with Collin Morikawa at +1200.

F1 Grand Prix- Miami 2022

Round five of the twenty-three race Formula One Grand Prix is scheduled to take place at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, from 6 May -8 May. Home to the Miami Dolphins, the stadium will see competitors and firm favorites Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen race to the finish line.

Both have had a turbulent and controversial 2021 with F1 but, according to most sportsbooks, Hamilton has the best odds to win (+130). It will also be his eighth world title, an astonishing accomplishment.

Kentucky Derby 2022

You can expect to find just two minutes of heart-stopping, edge-of-your-seat action at Churchill Downs for the greatest horse race in America, to be held on 7 May. The race is a mere 1.25 miles, but the event is attended by people from all walks of life- from politicians to well-known celebrities and, of course, horse racing enthusiasts.

Corniche is the leading contender, with odds of 6-1, followed by Smile Happy (20-1) and Jack Christopher (20-1).

U.S. Open 2022

The culmination of top sporting events of the year ends in the final Grand Slam Tennis Tournament, commencing 29 August until 11 September, at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City. Conveniently situated near New York, it is a must-see event for any sports fan.

Leagues ahead of their female colleagues are Ashleigh Barty (with odds of +500), and Naomi Osaka (+500 as well). In the men’s section is Novak Djokovic (+125) and Daniil Medvedev (+300).

In Summary

With the world slowly finding its new normal, it’s reassuring to know that death, taxes, and sports can be relied upon to deliver. Whether you love the thrill of the track or the steady pace of a golf game, 2022 looks set to make every sports fan’s heart happy.

And with the bonus of potentially winning big by betting on your best team, what’s not to love?
