Tale of Verve Belmont Stakes Odds
ELMONT, NY (The Spread) - Despite giving American Pharoah a challenge down the stretch at the Preakness Stakes, Tale of Verve is considered a long shot to win the 2015 Belmont Stakes this Saturday.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Tale of Verve is a 20/1 long shot to win Saturday's race while American Pharoah is the favorite at 4/5. Frosted remains American Pharoah's biggest threat at 5/1 odds, while Materiality is 12/1 and Madefromlucky is 12/1.
Tale of Verve has finished in the money in all three of his last starts, including a second-place showing in the Preakness behind American Pharoah. The Preakness was the first graded stakes race of Tale of Verve's career, which is why he was also a long shot to win at Pimlico.
Still, it's a little surprise to see that Tale of Verve is once again a long shot to pull off the upset on Saturday after nearly pulling off a shocker on just a few weeks ago.
