Archacharch vs. Mucho Macho Man
(The Spread) – Who will win between Archarcharch and Mucho Macho Man at the 2011 Kentucky Derby on Saturday?
For those Kentucky Derby bettors that are looking to wager on individual horse props, oddsmakers have released odds for a number of horse. For example, oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com have made Mucho Macho Man a –120 money line favorite over Archarcharch, who is –110 on the money line.
Mucho Macho Man has been a steady climber throughout the week. He started the week at +1400 on the money line but his odds have steadily gotten better the closer we get to race time. Now he’s +900 on the money line and his odds may improve even more by the 6:24PM ET post time.
Archarcharch’s odds have actually gotten worse since Monday, which is a little surprising seeing as how he drew the rail position on Wednesday. After starting the week at +1200 on the money line, he’s now +1200.
Mucho Macho Man has gathered some experience against top competition since last November. He placed second in back-to-back outings at the Nashua (Grade 2) and Remsen (Grade 2) in November of last year, then took fourth at the Holy Bull (Grade 3) on January 30. In February, he won the Risen Star over fellow Kentucky Derby contender Santiva and placed third in his last outing at the Louisiana Derby (Grade 2) behind Pants On Fire and Nehro.
Meanwhile, Archacharch is coming off an impressive victory over fellow Kentucky Derby contender Nehro in the Arkansas Derby (Grade 1). He also placed third at the Rebel Stakes (Grade 2) and first at the Southwest (Grade 3). This horse has been steadily improving for months and seems to be knocking on the door of something big.
