The Favorite: Oddsmakers from online sports book have made Dialed In a +350 money line favorite to win this year’s Kentucky Derby. Dialed In is coming off a victory at the Florida Derby (Grade 1) on April 3 and has won three of his four races dating back to November 12 of last year. He did finish second at an Allowance on March 6 behind Equestrio.

The Main Competition: Right behind Dialed In is Uncle Mo, who is +400 on the money line, which makes the two thoroughbreds interchangeable in terms of being the odds favorite. Uncle Mo was undefeated heading into the Wood Memorial (Grade 1) on April 9, but finished a disappointing third behind Toby’s Corner and Arthur’s Tale. Uncle Mo had won his previous four races, including the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (Grade 1) last November.

The Mid-Range Favorites: Archarcharch is +900 on the money line, which puts him behind Dialed In and Uncle Mo in terms of odds. The 3-year-old colt has run six times since November, winning three of those races and placing either second, third or fourth in the other three outings. His last race came at the Arkansas Derby, which he won on April 16.

The Long Shots: Some of the long-shots for this year’s Kentucky Derby include Decisive Moment at +6000, Comma to the Top, Twinspired and Watch Me Go at +5000, and Animal Kingdom at +4000. Some mid-range long shots include Master of Hounds at +1500, Mucho Hacho Man at +1400 and Toby’s Corner at +1300. A complete list of odds on this year’s Kentucky Derby are below.
