Triple Crown Belmont Stakes Odds at SBG Global

November 30th, 2010 Belmont Stakes Betting

Belmont Stakes odds have seen a lot of horses try for the Triple Crown each year.

Unfortunately none of them have been successful in Belmont odds. There has not been a Triple Crown winner since 1978 and there will not be one this year either as Mine That Bird won the Kentucky Derby while Rachel Alexandra won the Preakness.

Belmont Stakes odds have seen seven horses try for the Triple Crown in the last decade and none of them were successful. The favorites in Belmont Stakes odds have done well overall, but not recently. The Belmont Stakes odds favorite at the sports book lost in 1997, 1998 and 1999 and it has continued this decade. The biggest underdog ever in Belmont Stakes odds at the online sportsbook came through in 2002 as Sarava won at Belmont odds of 70-1. Empire Maker won in 2003 while Birdstone won in 2004.

Many times in Belmont Stakes odds you have horses that are simply tired. Running three races in five weeks is not an easy task for horses. Only two horses in Belmont odds this year are trying. Mine That Bird and Flying Private are the only two horses to race in all three Triple Crown races.

Belmont Stakes odds have seen upsets occur recently as previously noted. The past two years have also seen upsets at the online sportsbook. The filly Rags to Riches won in 2007 upsetting Curlin in Belmont Stakes odds. Last year it was Da’ Tara upsetting Big Brown.

As you look at Belmont odds this year you may want to look at the rested horses. Mine That Bird will get a lot of attention in Belmont Stakes odds but he could be worn out. Unlike the Preakness, the favorite has not done very well recently in the Belmont. In fact since 1976, the favorite has won just nine times. It didn’t used to be that way as in the early history of the race the favorite won more than half the time. Horses back then were more prepared to run long distances than they are today which is why favorites did better.

Belmont Stakes odds may present some nice value at the online sportsbook this season. Mine That Bird will be one of the favorites in Belmont Stakes odds but recent history has shown that fatigue could be a problem for this horse.
