The 2016 Kentucky Derby is tonight at 6:34PM ET and with that, here are some of the prop wagers that are offered by oddsmakers.
How many lengths will the winner of the Kentucky Derby win by this evening at Churchill Downs? According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the odds that the winning horse will win by more than or equal to 1 length are -200, while the odds that he'll win by less than 1 length are +150. If the winner tonight wins by more than or equal to 3 lengths, than bettors can cash with +150 odds.
Did the winner win his last race before the Kentucky Derby? If the winner of tonight's Derby also won his previous race, than the odds will pay -200. If the Derby winner did not win his prep race before winning tonight, than those odds will pay +150.
Will the first half mile time be over or under 46.8 seconds? Both the over and the under have odds of -120, respectively. Also, will the first quarter time be over or under 22.8 seconds? Those odds are both -120, respectively, for the over and the under.
How many words will be in the name of the Derby winner? One word has odds of -290, which makes sense given that Nyquist is the current favorite at 3/1. If the winner has a name that is two words, those odds pay +325, and if the winner has three or more words in his name, than those odds are +700.
