Although a Triple Crown is not on the line this year, Belmont odds are still interesting in online sports betting and have the potential for some big payouts.
2009 Belmont Stakes odds will be popular on the favorite although in recent history the favorite in Belmont odds has not done very well. Recent trends defy the long term trends in Belmont odds which show the favorite winning over 40% of the time. That online betting number continues to go down though. 12 years ago it was Touch Gold upsetting Silver Charm while the next year it was Real Quiet losing to Victory Gallop. Lemon Drop Kid won the next year in an upset against Charismatic. Seven years ago the biggest underdog winner ever came through at the Belmont as Sarava won at odds of 70-1. A year later it was Empire Maker taking out the favored Funny Cide. Birdstone shocked the online sports betting world and ruined Smarty Jones’ Triple Crown chances. Two years ago it was Rags to Riches upsetting Curling and last year it was Da’ Tara upsetting the heavily favored Big Brown.
It is tough for horses to run a mile and a half. It is even tougher for a horse to run that far if they have been in all three Triple Crown races. Rest can be important in 2009 Belmont Stakes odds but not too much rest. Horses from the Derby seem to do quite well in the Belmont as the rest seems perfect. Going from the Preakness to the Belmont though is not as successful. In 2009 Belmont Stakes odds it looks like only a couple of horses will be going from the Preakness to the Belmont but one of those, Mine That Bird, will be among the favorites. Quite a few horses will be going from the Derby to the Belmont so you may want to take a look at them in 2009 Belmont Stakes odds.
Upsets can be the way to go as you examine 2009 Belmont Stakes odds in online betting. In the last 33 years the favorite has won less than 30% of the time which is well below the 40%+ average for favorites in Belmont odds.
