Belmont Stakes Odds 2019
In betting the Belmont Stakes 2019 we could do a lot better than not let emotion get in the way.Despite the recent successes of American Pharoah and Justify, this race has seen many a Triple Crown contender beaten around this track.
Many winners of this race have gone off at big odds so it’s wise to not get too carried away by favorites with Belmont Park, вЂњThe Championship TrackвЂќ, proving itself time and time again to be the true Test of the Champion.
Although the final odds of winners tend to be a little larger than in the Derby or the Preakness, champions at Belmont do tend to have solid stakes form so keep a look out for horses having done well in major prep races in the spring, as well as having kept pace with those hitting the board in the Triple Crown races to this point.
How the Belmont Stakes Odds Are Formulated
As always the morning line odds are worth a glance, but the starting odds for the Belmont Stakes contenders [link to ‘Belmont Stakes Contenders 2019’ page] at post time will be decided on the Pari Mutuel system at the track, the final numbers dependent on how much money is going around and how many people bet each horse.
To put it another way, if there is a lot of money in the handle and not so many people are betting your horse then you could be in line for a huge return.Conversely, if most people are wagering your pick and it becomes favorite then your payout will be much smaller, just as it was last year with winning horse Justify.
On this system, odds will go up and down constantly in the build-up to the race and never more so than in the few moments before post time so be prepared not to know your exact return until the gates open.
Major Form Lines
Although it won’t necessarily help you to forecast the exact odds, it’s good to keep a tight eye on the major prep races for this event to see who the contenders may be.Those running in major trials such as the Wood Memorial, the Santa Anita Derby, the Florida Derby and the Blue Grass Stakes will all be prominent in the Kentucky Derby betting and it’s the result of that, as well as the Preakness Stakes, that will shape this market.
