While there will not be a Triple Crown winner this year, Belmont odds at the sportsbook still should be interesting.
2009 Belmont Stakes odds feature a number of horses that were in the Kentucky Derby including the winner, Mine That Bird. The Belmont is the longest of the three Triple Crown races at a mile and a half. It is possible that a filly could be involved in 2009 Belmont Stakes odds as Rachel Alexandra is possible for the field. She would have a five pound weight advantage as colts and geldings carry 126 pounds while fillies carry 121 pounds.
2009 Belmont Stakes odds should present some nice sports betting opportunities. You can choose to make win, place and show wagers but it is the exotic wagers that can really pay well in Belmont odds. Recently the favorites in Belmont odds have not fared that well which has meant the exotics have paid well at the sportsbook. Exacta, trifecta and superfecta choices can have value as can pick three’s, the pick four and even the pick six. The Belmont Stakes is the key race in these multi-race exotic wagers.
As you look to handicap 2009 Belmont Stakes odds you should remember that stamina is critical. If a horse can’t run the distance then you don’t want him on your exotic wagers. One thing that can help you determine stamina is the dosage index. This used to get a lot of press when it came to the Kentucky Derby but it has lost followers in recent years. It can still be used a little bit in the Belmont though as you want horses in sports betting with numbers under 4.00. The lower numbers are better in the dosage index.
2009 Belmont Stakes odds will have Mine That Bird as one of the favorites. Other horses from the Kentucky Derby are expected to be on the 2009 Belmont Stakes odds board. They are Mr. Hot Stuff, Flying Private, Dunkirk, Chocolate Candy and Summer Bird. Luv Gov, who raced in the Preakness could also be in the field. A couple of newcomers in Belmont odds are expected to be Miner’s Escape and Charitable Man. Horses from the Derby have traditionally done well in the Belmont so you may want to consider those six horses.
