Belmont Stakes Betting

 
 

It is not always easy to choose the winner in Belmont Stakes wagering at the sports book. The horses in the Belmont have never run a mile and half and will probably never run that far again. That makes it tough to find a quality horse without a lot of guesswork versus the Belmont Stakes lines at the sportsbook. Sometimes you have the added pressure of a possible Triple Crown if a horse has won the Derby and the Preakness. Even when you have a horse that goes into the Belmont with a chance for the Triple Crown, most of the time the horse fails.

Belmont Stakes odds are a bit different than the other two Triple Crown races. The Derby is a wide open betting affair where longshots rule the day. The Preakness is more of a favorite’s race with shorter prices while the Belmont could be anything. You could have a short price horse win or have a closer come from the clouds to hit a big price in Belmont Stakes odds at the sportsbook. That is what makes betting Belmont Stakes odds difficult for many horse racing bettors.

As you are betting 2015 Belmont Stakes odds remember to take a few shots in the exotics. Put together some nice exacta and trifecta boxes and try and hit the big score. That is really the only way to make good money in horse racing and Belmont Stakes odds definitely give you the chance to hit one of those nice payouts.

Exaggerator Disappoints Horse Betting Fans at Belmont

Exaggerator disappoints horse betting fans Exaggerator’s horse betting odds of winning the 2016 Belmont Stakes turned out to be, well, an exaggeration. A long time ago a man said the last shall be first, and the first last. He had long hair and some wild ideas, and he didn't always do what other people thought was right. And that man's name was … I forget. You know who I'm talking about. He used to drive a blue car. The point is that Creator posted 13 in a field of 13 and went on to finish the 148th Test of Champions in first place. Meanwhile, Exaggerator seemed well content with the post he drew and that’s exactly where he finished – in 11th place.

Belmont Stakes 2016 horse betting contendersHorse betting experts are bemoaning the fact that, A) the 2016 Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 11th will not see a Triple Crown champion and, 2) that there will not be a rubber match between Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist – who came down with fever – and Preakness Stakes winner Exaggerator – though how it could have been a rubber match when the former has beaten latter four times in the past has not been explained.

Belmont Stakes Betting on Exaggerator to Win the Race

Exaggerator to win the 2016 Belmont StakesNow that Nyquist is out of the picture, Exaggerator is the Belmont Stakes betting favorite to win the 148th running of the Test of the Champions. And even if Nyquist weren’t still at Pimlico recovering from illness, Exaggerator has already proven he can beat Nyquist, which he actually did at the Preakness Stakes. Now that Exxie has been able to cross that out of his bucket list, what’s to stop him at Belmont? And while there will be no Triple Crown Champion this year, Exaggerator can still join the distinguished club  of horses who have won both Preakness and Belmont – and which includes the likes of Pillory, Capot, Nashua, Damascus, Risen Star, Hansel, Tabasco Cat, and others.

Nyquist Drops Put of Belmont Stakes With a 102 fever

NyquistExaggerator has officially become the new odds-on horse betting favorite to win the Belmont Stakes after it has been reported that Nyquist will skip the race as a result of illness. Looking back on the Kentucky Derby winner’s run, it always seemed rather unfair that he was constantly and negatively compared to last year’s Triple Crown champion American Pharoah. However, in light of this new development, coupled with Nyquist finishing the Preakness Stakes in third place, it appears as if this horse was doomed to not a second more than his 15 minutes of fame – but since a horse year is equal to 6 1/2 human years, then 15 minutes would equal… well, you get  the idea.
