Triple Crown betting favorites at SBG Global
Triple Crown betting favorites always look appealing but oftentimes go down in flames. Let’s consider Triple Crown betting favorites and whether or not the latest one, Big Brown is worthy. Triple Crown betting is exciting as a horse tries to make history by wining the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont. Keep in mind that there has not been a Triple Crown wagering winner since 1978. In the last 29 years there have been 10 horses with a shot in Triple Crown betting but none has pulled off the trifecta.
All 10 of those horses that won the Derby and Preakness went into the Belmont with very low Triple Crown betting odds. Eight of the ten horses went off at odds-on in Triple Crown betting for the Belmont Stakes. Just remember how often in Triple Crown betting history that a big favorite bombed in the Belmont. Back in 1979, the year after Affirmed won the Triple Crown, Spectacular Bid looked like a sure winner and went off at Triple Crown betting odds of lower than 3-5 and lost. Real Quiet went off at Triple Crown wagering odds of 4-5 in the Belmont in 1998 and lost. The same thing happened to Smarty Jones in 2004 as his odds were less than 3-5 in the Belmont.
The Belmont has ended quite a few Triple Crown hopes in the past decade. The problem with the Belmont is that it is not like the other Triple Crown betting races. It is a grueling mile and a half that takes a lot out of horses. It takes a lot out of even the best horses. Big Brown is the latest sensation that will go off at odds-on in the Belmont. Will he win? On paper he should easily be the first Triple Crown betting winner since Affirmed but we have said that before. The best horses don’t always win in Triple Crown wagering. Anything can happen in Triple Crown betting, especially in the Belmont.
