Animal Kingdom vs. Nehro Odds
(The Spread) – Oddsmakers have released race matchup odds for two of the favorites in tonight’s Belmont Stakes race.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog currently list Animal Kingdom a –175 money line favorite over Nehro, who is +145 on the ML.
Take note that these odds only apply to Animal Kingdom and Nehro and have nothing to do with the overall money line odds that are listed below. Those odds are for which horse will win the Belmont outright.
Animal Kingdom edged out Nehro at Churchill Downs in the 2011 Kentucky Derby last month. Animal Kingdom finished first, while Nehro finished a respectable second after coming out of the No. 19 post.
Race Matchup Outlook: While I think Animal Kingdom could win the Belmont Stakes in rather easy fashion, Nehro offers the most value in terms of these odds. He’s fresher than Animal Kingdom because he didn’t run in the Preakness and we already know he can hang with the 2011 Kentucky Derby winner. At +145 on the money line, he’s worth a look on a small wager in this particular race matchup.
