Exotic Wagers in Belmont Stakes Betting

May 31, 2011 Belmont Stakes

Some of the best choices in Belmont Stakes betting are the exotic wagers.

In recent years long shots have been winning in Belmont betting and that has meant some very nice prices in the exacta, trifecta and superfecta.  That could be the case again on Saturday, June 11th in this year’s Belmont Stakes.

Exotic Wagers
We already know that you can wager on a horse to win, place and show in Belmont betting but the big payoffs occur on the exacta, quinella, trifecta and superfecta.  Not to be left out in exotic wagers in the Belmont are the pick three, pick four and pick six tickets. The Belmont will be the feature race on Saturday, June 11th and that means it will be part of the pick four and the pix six and you can play pick three’s all day. A lot of people like to play the exotic wagers in the Belmont because of the potential for big payoffs. It is not like the Kentucky Derby where huge scores are possible but the Belmont is a better race for gamblers than the Preakness in terms of exotic prices. Last year the $2 exacta paid $144.50, the $2 trifecta paid $766 and the $2 superfecta paid over $10,000 dollars. Three years ago the $2 exacta paid $659, the $2 trifecta paid almost four thousand dollars and the $2 superfecta paid over $47,000.  And don’t forget that the payouts for pick three’s pick four’s and the pick six can oftentimes be a lot larger when a big longshot wins the Belmont.  It has been six years since the favorite won the Belmont so it could be another year for the longshot in the Belmont Stakes.

Belmont Matchups
When you look at the odds in Belmont Stakes betting don’t forget about the horse matchups you will see at the Sbg global sportsbook.  These are matchups like what you would see in golf, UFC, or tennis. In horse racing it is simply one horse against another and the horse that finishes the best wins the matchup.  This takes a lot of the guesswork out of handicapping the race as all you need is for the horse you pick to finish ahead of the other horse in the matchup.  It is an interesting and potentially profitable way to play the Belmont Stakes.
