CHURCHILL DOWNS, KY (The Spread) - Oddsmakers remain torn on who the clear favorite is in this year's 2013 Kentucky Derby.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, both Orb and Verrazano have similar odds. Orb is 17/4 while Verrazano is 19/4, although both horse's odds have changed throughout the week. At one point this week Verrazano was favored and then he and Orb flipped before settling in with identical 9/2 odds on Friday evening.

No matter what their final odds are, one thing is for certain: Verrazano and Orb are expected to challenge for the 2013 Kentucky Derby crown.

Verrazano recently won the Grade I Wood Memorial and will likely challenge Orb for first place at Churchill Downs this weekend. In fact, Verrazano has yet to lose in four career races, which include victories at the Grade II Tampa Bay Derby and the previously mentioned Wood Memorial.

At the Wood Memorial on April 6, he beat out Normandy Invasion (2nd) and Vyjack (third), two horses that will also compete at this weekend's Kentucky Derby. And at the Tampa Bay Derby, Verrazano placed ahead of second-place finisher Java's War and third-place contender Falling Sky, both of which will also compete at Churchill Downs on Saturday.

Verrazano drew the No. 14 post position on Wednesday for today's Kentucky Derby, which will start at 6:24PM ET (Post Time). The race will be shown on NBC.
