Betting On Kentucky Derby - Early Derby Odds
Online sportsbook racing fans that love to wager on the Kentucky Derby have to at least pay a bit of attention to the early Derby odds, but they also have to remember that several hundred stories are yet to be written before they hit the gate the first Saturday in May.
To evaluate the early betting odds, players have to just know who is currently on the radar and who is getting action for what seems like little reason because those are the runners that could shock come the spring.
Let’s look at a couple of the prominent runners taking action on betting websites.
According to Wynn, Algorithms chimes in an 8-1 on the Kentucky Derby Future Book line and even though this horse is a monster and going great guns, there is a long way to go to hit pay dirt but the fact he is tabbed at single digits is significant.
The son of Bernardini has been brilliant since Day One. He was bet like a good thing in his debut and drew off for fun. Given time to recoup, the Todd Pletcher student was professional winning his final start of 2011 and he improved again on the Beyer scale winning the Holy Bull at Gulfstream the end of January by 5 facile lengths with a 105 Beyer.
The figure was slop aided, but the blood sure is there for this guy to shine. He is bred to go long on both sides of the pedigree and if a surface comes up off, this runner is bred to adore the off going.
Three of his siblings won at least $298,000, two carried speed successfully routing and the Graded winner that did not was beaten a neck routing.
The next likely spot for Algorithms is either the Fountain of Youth the end of this month, or the Florida Derby on March 31. If this one stays healthy and that’s a big if, he will be a handful.
Liaison was tabbed at 12-1 before his debacle when the rider was lost in the Robert Lewis at Anita on Saturday. Already a proven router and Grade 1 winner, he will live to fight another day.
Union Rags, second in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, proved his class taking the Grade 1 Champagne, was flying in the Cup and is in the right hands of Michael Matz, who had the late great Barbaro.
Rags has trained well of late posting a 1:00 4/5 drill on Jan. 24 and he will be carefully spotted.
Out of Bounds has to be considered as he was tabbed at 25-1. This guy was educated in his sprint debut, graduated despite going wide and opened up 2012 on the right note cashing in the Grade 3 Sham in game style with a 99 Beyer.
Connections have every right to be high on this guy as he is kin to Etched, who won a couple of Grade 2s, carried his speed going 9 furlongs, handled any kind of going and had the tactical speed to give him a puncher’s chance more often than not.
