The Belmont Stakes odds will have the smallest field of the three Triple Crown races because the Belmont is a brutally tough race.
Belmont Stakes betting this year will not include the Kentucky Derby winner or the Preakness winner. The Belmont usually either has a lot of betting or very little depending upon whether or not a horse is going for the Triple Crown. Even with no Triple Crown on the line there is still money to be made though. As you consider the Belmont Stakes you need to start with the basics. That means you still want to look at information like past performances, class, track conditions, etc. And most important you also want to make sure your horse can run a mile and a half. It is not always easy to choose the winner in Belmont Stakes odds. The distance is a big factor. Horses do not run a mile and a half so that makes picking the winner a little bit difficult. There are some things that can help you find a winner though.
The first tip to remember is that the race is unpredictable. You can get some good prices in Belmont Stakes betting and that means exotics can pay well. Take your chances with exactas, trifectas and even the superfecta. If you want to make money in horse racing then the exotics are the way to go.
You have that chance in the Belmont. You may also be able to pick the Belmont winner and put him into some pick three’s or the pick four.
The Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 5th will not have the big name horses like Super Saver or Lookin at Lucky but there will be some good horses. Second place Kentucky Derby horse Ice Box is the likely favorite. Preakness runner-up First Dude should not be far behind in the wagering. The field is likely going to be smaller than the Derby or the Preakness so that should make your handicapping a little easier. Remember the basics; find a horse that has stamina and play the exotics and you want win when you bet this year’s Belmont Stakes.
