Preakness Stakes wagering at the online sportsbook should be very exciting with a lot of horses in this year’s field. Preakness Stakes odds will not have the Kentucky Derby winner favored and that should make the race even more intriguing and exciting. Let’s take a look at some important Preakness Stakes wagering notes.
Preakness Stakes wagering on Saturday, May 16th is likely to have a number of horses contending for the favorite’s role. Mine That Bird won the Kentucky Derby and will be trying to stay alive for a possible Triple Crown but most gambslers don’t believe the horse can win the Preakness. Other horses that were in the Derby and quite a few newcomers are given better chances in Preakness Stakes wagering than Mine That Bird.
There are a lot of great wagers you can make in Preakness Stakes wagering. The normal win, place and show wagers are always popular in Preakness Stakes wagering and the exotic wagers also get a lot of play from gamblers at the online sportsbook. Exacta, quinella, trifecta, superfecta and even pick three’s and pick four’s are very popular wagers.
Preakness Stakes wagering takes place just two weeks after the Kentucky Derby and three weeks before the Belmont Stakes. Normally online sportsbook gamblers look at the Derby winner and try and put together tickets with that horse involved. That probably won’t be the case in Preakness Stakes wagering this year since many gamblers believe Mine That Bird’s win was a fluke.
As you look at the Preakness Stakes odds this year remember to take a look at the last few races of each contender, not just the last one. It might not be a bad idea to throw the Kentucky Derby race out altogether since it was run in the slop and had an unpredictable result. Go back another race and see what the horse did in the race previous to the Kentucky Derby to see what his chances are in Preakness Stakes odds.
Preakness Stakes wagering is unique since it happens very quickly after the Kentucky Derby with a possible Triple Crown still at stake. The race is shorter than either of the other two Triple Crown races which can make handicapping Preakness Stakes odds different. Speed is important as is conditioning, and even post position in Preakness Stakes wagering. There are always factors to consider that apply specifically to Preakness Stakes wagering.
