Picking Winners in Belmont Stakes Wagering at SBG Global

November 30th, 2010 Belmont Stakes Betting

Belmont Stakes wagering winners have not been that easy to pick in recent years with underdogs upsetting the favorites more times than not.

Will that be the case again in Belmont Stakes odds on Saturday, June 6th? Let’s take a look at picking winners in the Belmont Stakes.

Belmont Stakes wagering is sometimes difficult because it is tough to know if a horse can really run a mile and a half successfully. Belmont Stakes wagering is also very dependent upon whether or not a Triple Crown is at stake. There will be no Triple Crown again in 2009 making it 31 years since Affirmed won the Triple Crown in 1978. Mine That Bird won the Kentucky Derby at 50-1 odds while the filly Rachel Alexandra won as the favorite in the Preakness.

Handicapping the Belmont Stakes odds begins with looking at the basics like the numbers in the Racing Form but it is not quite that easy. If the horse you choose in Belmont Stakes wagering can’t run a mile and a half successfully not much else is relevant.

Keep in mind that in Belmont Stakes wagering that the race is unpredictable with underdogs doing well. That means the exotic wagers like the trifecta and the superfecta can pay very well in online sports betting. They probably won’t pay like the Kentucky Derby ones but the Belmont Stakes wagering exotics have traditionally paid a lot better than the Preakness ones.

Picking winners in Belmont Stakes odds really does involve looking at the exotic wagers. It is tough to make money in horse racing betting simply by playing win, place and show. You must hit the big payoffs if you want to make money in Belmont Stakes odds.

The 2009 Belmont Stakes should give you a lot of choices in Belmont Stakes wagering. Mine That Bird, the Kentucky Derby winner, is the likely favorite but recent history has shown that underdogs in online betting can do very well in the Belmont. There really won’t be another big online sports betting choice in this year’s Belmont Stakes unless the filly Rachel Alexandra is entered in the race.

The 2009 Belmont Stakes field should include at least 10 horses and possibly as many as 11 or 12. That should give online sports betting gamblers a lot of choices and a lot of opportunities to make money in this year’s race.
