2014 Preakness Stakes odds California Chrome horse racing betting

BALTIMORE, MD (The Spread) - With the 2014 Preakness Stakes post time rapidly approaching, here's a look at the odds for today's Triple Crown race.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, California Chrome remains the favorite at 5/9, while Social Inclusion has the next-best odds at 13/2. California Chrome is coming off a victory in the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs two weeks ago and has now won five consecutive races.

Bayern is also 12/1, while Kid Cruz and Ride On Curlin are now 14/1, respectively. Dynamic Impact is currently 18/1 and is listed among the mid-range long shots, along with General A Rod at 22/1 and Ria Antonia at 25/1. Pablo Del Monte and Ring Weekend have the longest odds to win today's race at 28/1, respectively.

Bettors will need to check on the weather in the Baltimore, Maryland area leading up to the 6:20PM ET post time. Rain started to hit the area at midnight on Friday and torrential storms were expected to hit the area at some point. The dirt track needs a few hours to dry so if a storm hits right before post time, then be aware of how much you're wagering on the favorite California Chrome seeing as how his odds don't represent a ton of value.

In 2009 a 50/1 long shot named Mine That Bird won the Kentucky Derby on a muddy Churchill Downs track. Weather conditions and wind can often have an impact on the field and in that specific race, the muddy track leveled the field and Mine That Bird was able to pull off a shocking upset. Granted, there were other factors that contributed to his victory, but again, keep the weather in mind as we draw closer to this evening's race.

As of right now the forecast calls for 67 degrees and partly cloudy in Baltimore, Maryland, so the race should be clear of rain. If the track isn't muddy, then it should run fast.

The 2014 Preakness Stakes will take place at 6:20PM ET (post time) today, Saturday, May 17.
