Kentucky Derby Updated Odds
(The Spread) – While Dialed In is still favored to win the 2011 Kentucky Derby, many of the other contenders’ odds have changed.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com, Dialed In is favored at +275 on the money line. When the odds were released earlier this week, he was +350 on the ML, then moved to +300 after the post positions were announced on Wednesday, then he dropped again to +250 on Friday when Uncle Mo was scratched. Now, as of 12:00PM ET the day of the race, Dialed In sits at +275.
One of the biggest movers this week is Twice The Appeal. When the odds were updated on Monday, Twice The Appeal was +3000 on the money line. His odds dropped to +1000 on Friday and now they’re all the way down to +500. One of the reasons why his odds continue to drop is because of his jockey Calvin Borel, whom bettors know has won three of the last four Kentucky Derbys. Casual bettors will probably continue to hammer Twice The Appeal’s odds.
Pants On Fire is another contender drawing a ton of attention. He opened the week at +2800 but has steadily dropped since. He was +1800 on Friday and now sits at +600. This is a horse that is as healthy as he’s been in his career and he’s coming off a victory at the Louisiana Derby.
Nehro’s odds haven’t changed much, although he continues to fall out of favor with bettors. He opened the week at +600 before dropping to +400. But now he’s back up to +700 while the odds for some of the other contenders continue to rise. Nehro came into the week as one of the favorites, but he drew a bad post position on Wednesday (the No. 19 post has never produced a Kentucky Derby winner) and that may be the reason bettors are steering clear of such a good horse leading up to post time.
