Who are the Betting Favorites for the Kentucky Derby 2015

With the 141st Kentucky Derby set to take place on Saturday, May 2nd 2015 the same day as the Mayweather and Pacquiao fight, many online bettors are asking the question, “who are the betting favorites for the Kentucky Derby 2015?”.

Unlike other sports, the Kentucky Derby favorites change each year due to the nature of horse racing as a sport. Horses don’t remain at the peak of their careers for a decade or more like athletes in other sports, so the field in an event like Kentucky Derby 2015 is constantly in flux. Kentucky Derby online betting starts early – months ahead of the actual race, in fact. By picking out a few early Kentucky Derby favorites and getting a wager in place, it is possible to get odds that won’t be available by the time the race comes around in May.

As evidence of the long odds that are possible when wagering so far in advance, the early favorite to win the Kentucky Derby 2015 is American Pharaoh, which is posted at 40-1. If this horse remains the favorite by the time race day arrives, you can be sure that the odds will be much shorter at that point. Other Kentucky Derby favorites include I Spent It at 50-1, Competitive Edge and Hashtag Bourbon (both 60-1). Daredevil and Cozmic One also make the board in the early wagering.

Take a shot at picking the winner of the first race of the 2015 Triple Crown and you could be rewarded nicely.
