2015 Kentucky Derby Odds

The 2015 Kentucky Derby will be the 141st running of this prestigious and historic race. For anyone unfamiliar, the Kentucky Derby consists of 3-year old Thoroughbred horses and qualifying is now based on a points system developed in 2013. At BetDSI, Dortmund is the most popular bet so far with favorite American Pharoah right behind. Below shows how the odds to win have fluctuated at Sportsbook and BetOnline:

Since betting on the Derby brings out many people who wouldn’t normally bet on horse racing, odds can be drastically different from sportsbook to sportsbook. We always stress the importance of shopping for the best line when it comes to games and totals but it certainly holds true for any bet or investment you make. For instance, you one April 16th you could get Bolo at 50:1 at BetOnline but only 28:1 at Sportsbook. A $10 bet on Bolo would net $500 at BetOnline but only $280 at Sportsbook, a difference of $220 all because you placed your bet at one book over another.

Odds on a Triple Crown Winner (winning the Kentucky Derby, Belmont Stakes, and Preakness):
