Fellowship vs. Laoban Preakness Prediction
Which Preakness Stakes contender will finish higher in the final results: Laoban or Fellowship? Read on for our prediction for this prop wager.
Who has better odds to win the Preakness Stakes: Laoban or Fellowship?
Both contenders have 50/1 odds to win the Preakness Stakes according to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv. In fact, along with Laoban and Fellowship, Abiding Star and Awesome Speed are also 50/1, respectively, to win the Preakness Stakes on Saturday.
Who has better odds to finish higher at the Preakness: Laoban or Fellowship?
Just like their 50/1 odds to win the Preakness Stakes outright, both Laoban and Fellowship have the same 20/23 odds, respectively, to finish higher than each other. Those 20/23 odds are attached to a prop bet, which has nothing to do with the horses' odds to win the Preakness. Neither thoroughbred has to win the Preakness for bettors to win the prop bet, just finish higher than its contender.
So which horse will finish higher in the final results: Laoban or Fellowship?
Take Fellowship. Jacks or Better Farm owns Fellowship and made the switch to trainer Mark Casse after the Florida Derby in April. Fellowship has won at distances from 4 1/2 furlongs to 1 1/16 miles, finishing first, second or third at five different distances. He won't win the Preakness Stakes on Saturday but he has a much better chance to close into one of the top 4 spots than Laoban.
