McKinzie Slips In Latest Kentucky Derby Odds

Going into 2018 Kentucky Derby and the Santa Anita Derby we are witnessing all sorts of changes. These changes are heavily impacting Kentucky Derby odds and line changes. There was a big shakeup in the Kentucky Derby odds this week due to an injury suffered by McKinzie, who had the best odds to win the Kentucky Derby last week. With McKinzie expected to miss the event, the oddsmakers have a new favorite to win the Derby, and it isn’t the horse you think it is.

Here are the latest 2018 Kentucky Derby favorites odds update:

144th Kentucky Derby Betting Lines Update

1. Justify (7-1): Justify now has best odds of winning the Kentucky Derby replacing fellow Bob Baffert trained McKinzie. Despite being one of the favorites to win the Kentucky Derby, Justify has only been in two races, and will try to prove it deserves the high odds when he faces some of the top contenders in the Santa Anita Derby this week.

T2. Bolt d’Oro (8-1): You may have already noticed that Bolt d’Oro remains one of the favorites to win the Kentucky Derby.  It appears the oddsmakers aren’t totally sold on him after moving Justify one spot ahead of him even though neither horse raced last week. Bolt d’Oro’s who has four wins in five starts, will still be one of the popular betting choices to win the Derby.

T2. Audible (8-1): Audible finds himself back in the top five after winning the Florida Derby this past weekend. The win at the Florida Derby gave Audible his fourth consecutive win, after finishing third in his first race.

4. Magnum Moon (10-1): Magnum Moon remains in fourth place after moving up last week due to his win at the Rebel Stakes. Even though he was idle this week, he still managed to avoid getting leap frogged by the trio of horses hot on his trail.

5. Good Magic, Noble Indy and Solomini (12-1): The three horses were idle this past weekend, but with Good Magic participating in the Blue Grass Stakes this week, expect him to have sole possession of the fifth best odds if he wins.
