Taking the Derby winner in Belmont odds is always a risk, since the horse rarely wins. Let’s look at handicapping Belmont Stakes odds.
Belmont Stakes odds will have a number of horses that can spring the upset.
Anytime you have horses going a mile and a half, strange things can happen. You have to remember that horses just don’t run that far in North America. Belmont Stakes odds are about horses that have stamina. And that is a huge unknown as you handicap Belmont odds. Can a horse really go that far? In recent years it is all guesswork in online sports betting because horses just do not run that far before taking part in the Belmont Stakes. Also remember that there has not been a Triple Crown winner since 1978 even though quite a few horses have headed to the Belmont with a chance. That will not be the case in Belmont Stakes odds this year though since Mine That Bird won the Derby while Rachel Alexandra won the Preakness.
As you handicap Belmont Stakes odds you might want to take a look at the results of the Peter Pan. That race is run at a mile and an 8th and has become a good prep race for horses running in Belmont odds. This year’s winner was Charitable Man and he is a probable entrant in Belmont Stakes odds. Past Belmont Stakes odds history has seen some Peter Pan winners do well in the Belmont as A.P. Indy, Lemon Drop Kidd and Colonial Affair were winners in Belmont Stakes odds after running in the Peter Pan.
Belmont Stakes odds will not have a Triple Crown at stake this year but that might make the online betting more wide open. There is not likely to be a huge online betting favorite even if Rachel Alexandra runs. There would be some question as to whether she could make the distance although she would probably still be favored in Belmont Stakes odds based on her Preakness win.
When it comes to handicapping Belmont odds it is best to look at pedigree and recent races. Make sure the horse can run a mile and a half first and go from there as you handicap the Belmont Stakes and prepare for online sports betting.
