Belmont Odds Picks at SBG Global

November 30th, 2010 Belmont Stakes Betting

Belmont odds give you quite a few options to consider when you play this Triple Crown race know as the “Test of the Champion.”

What factors should you consider when you make Belmont Stakes odds picks at the online sportsbook? Let’s take a look at a few of the factors that can be important in picking Belmont Stakes winners.

Belmont odds handicapping should begin with the stamina of each horse. Can the horse you are picking in Belmont Stakes odds make the mile and a half distance? This is sometimes a factor that is difficult to figure out and here is why. Horses simply don’t run a mile an a half. They come into Belmont odds having never run this far and they will almost assuredly never run this far again. So it is guesswork in a sense as to whether or not the horse can handle the distance in Belmont Stakes odds.

Belmont odds picks also have to factor in the possibility of a Triple Crown and they have to take into account the favorite of the race. If a Triple Crown is one the line then the horse is going to be heavily favored in Belmont Stakes odds. Recently in Belmont odds history the favorite has flopped with longshots ruling the day. That may happen again in Belmont odds this year or perhaps the race will revert back to when favorites ruled the day.

When making Belmont odds picks at the sports book you start with pedigree and the move to recent races, jockey, trainer, class, pace, etc. Post positions and traffic are not too much of an issue in Belmont odds since the race is so long but then again jockey and trainer factors are not that critical either. It all comes down to whether or not a horse can run a mile and a half and do it well.

As you make Belmont odds picks at the online sportsbook you want to really look at some of the exotic wagers like exacta, trifecta and superfecta wagering. If the favorite does not win in Belmont Stakes odds then the exotics could really pay well. With a longshot on top they can pay even better in Belmont odds at the sports book.
