This level of variation between oddsmakers is one of the reasons we encourage all of our customers to have access to at least three different sportsbooks — one square (i.e. Bovada or Sports Interaction), one sharp (i.e the Greek or CRIS) and one reduced juice (i.e 5Dimes or Pinnacle). If you’re looking to bet some aspect of the Preakness but can’t pick a winner, California Chrome is currently a heavy -600 favorite to finish in the Top 3.
The table below shows the odds for each horse to finish in the top 3 at Bovada.
|Ride On Curlin||+200|
|General A Rod||+425|
|Pablo Del Monte||+450|
