Bet on HorsesIt’s going to be awfully tough to tame the mighty Verrazano (Odds To Win 2013 Kentucky Derby: 5.50 to 1 at 5Dimes Sportsbook). An undefeated four-time champ, Verrazano has run up against some of the best horses in the world, including several that are going to be in this field, and he has really never even been tested. This is a colt that has never trailed by more than two lengths of any horse at any point in any race in his career, and he is going to intend on keeping it that way on Saturday at Churchill Downs as well. The truth of the matter is that this is a really special horse. We know that Verrazano is going to get right out to or near the lead in that No. 14 post, and if that’s how this plays out, he is not only going to be the big time favorite to win this race, but he is certainly the most likely one to nail the wire first as well. Don’t be shocked if this price that you see right now is the best opportunity that you have, so be sure to do it right now if you think that he is going to win this race.

Verrazano might be the only undefeated horse in the field, but he isn’t the only horse that is unbeaten as a three year old. Orb (2013 Kentucky Derby Odds: 5 to 1 at 5Dimes Sportsbook) went through the Florida circuit this year, and he was one of the most impressive horses that we have seen in the prep races thus far. We do see a few problems with Orb, though. The biggest is that he hasn’t had a Beyer Speed Rating beyond a 97 yet in his career. Yes, he was impressive at both the Fountain of Youth and the Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park, but in both races, he only managed a 97 speed rating. The other issue is that his style of running from off of the pace often provides issues for some of the top dogs in the field. Orb isn’t going to settle into 5th or 6th place at the outset like he has in a number of races in the past, and if he does, it’s only going to be because he put out a ton of energy in doing so. Instead, he is going to have to get out of the way of a number of horses down the stretch to be able to run down the leaders, perhaps of which Verrazano could be one. It’s a scary situation for sure to be in if you’re an Orb supporter, but you have to be wowed by what he has accomplished thus far this year regardless.

If you’re going to be the best three-year old colt in the world, you’d better be able to stand toe to toe with the best in the biz. That’s why we think that Normandy Invasion (2013 Kentucky Derby Lines: 10 to 1 at BetOnline Sportsbook) is particularly intriguing. We don’t know if the 10 to 1 odds that we see on the board are quite as good as we will see come post time on Saturday, but we do know that this is a horse that we are very interested in. Rarely this late in their careers to the oddsmakers get it wrong with these horses. There’s a reason that Normandy’s Invasion was considered one of the favorites on the odds to win the Wood Memorial this year, and there’s an even better reason that this race ended up being so close. We haven’t seen Normandy Invasion win but once in his career, and though that doesn’t bode well for the Run for the Roses, we still think that this could be one of the sneakiest horses that the race has to offer.

Horse Racing OddsThere is a heck of a lot of talk about Blue Grass Stakes winner Java’s War as the best closer in this race, but we aren’t so sure that he was even truly the best closer at Keeneland that day. Palace Malice (2013 Kentucky Derby Betting Odds: 30 to 1 at 5Dimes Sportsbook) really stood toe to toe with Java’s War down the stretch of that race, and though he didn’t run well at the outset, Palace Malice definitely was a horse to contend with. We think that this is a colt that has gotten a rough break in his career, as he had a rough run at the Louisiana Derby and was outkicked at the Rising Star. However, at 5 to 1 in the Blue Grass Stakes, which was the second highest price that this horse has ever had in his career, he only lost by a neck to Java’s War, and he certainly was good enough to win the race. Palace Malice has some awesome bloodlines as well, probably amongst the best that we see at the Derby, and he definitely has the combination of the speed and the distance to be able to win the 2013 Kentucky Derby.

The third place horse in the Blue Grass Stakes might be one to watch as well. Charming Kitten (Odds To Win The Kentucky Derby: 40 to 1 at 5Dimes Sportsbook) has a great price on his head right now. This colt ran a whale of a race at the Blue Grass Stakes, and even though he finished third, he was right there making the charge with Java’s War as well. This is a well race horse that has ties to some great tradition of horse racing. He also has a great trainer in Todd Pletcher as well, and Pletcher isn’t bringing a horse to the Derby just for the sake of entering him. Charming Kitten has never run faster than an 88 Beyer Speed rating, but up until the Blue Grass, he was favored everywhere that he went. Don’t be shocked if this is one of these Mine That Bird type of horses that comes out of absolutely nowhere to ultimately get on the podium at the Derby.

Kentucky Derby Free Picks & Predictions: Top 5 Contenders

Our coverage of the 2010 Kentucky Derby betting lines continues here at Bankroll Sports with a look at the Top Five horses that you should have on your radar as potential winners for the Super Bowl of horse racing this Saturday afternoon!

Lookin At Lucky (4/1 at BoDog Sportsbook): Lookin At Lucky is going to try to become the first horse since 1986 to win the Kentucky Derby from the rail. Traditionally, what ends up happening is that the inside horses get shoved, bumped, and crammed early, which often makes for a very uncomfortable ride. This isn’t a colt that is going to burst right out to the front of the pack either, so navigating traffic could be difficult. However, there’s no doubt, with five stakes wins to his credit, Lookin At Lucky is most certainly the horse that is going to have the bulls-eye on his back no matter what post he is starting out of.

Sidney’s Candy (13/2 at BoDog Sportsbook): Here we have a horse that dominated out in California in all of his prep races, winning three times, including at the highly touted Santa Anita Derby. Many think that Sidney’s Candy has the ability to go wire-to-wire, but if that’s what he goal is, he has the worst post draw in the world. Unfortunately, the race could be over right at the gate for this horse, as he is going to try to race out to the front of the pack from the far outside position at gate #20. His only hope is that the horses to his immediate inside also don’t try to get out to the front of the field, but in all likelihood, Sidney’s Candy is going to be running a significantly longer race than any of these other horses are, as he could easily be pushed seven or eight wide in that first turn. If he does get to the front of the pack and to the rail without using too much energy though, Sidney’s Candy is going to be tough to run down.

Conveyance (16/1 at BoDog Sportsbook): Though Conveyance hasn’t exactly run against the best crops of three year olds in the world in his prep races, it’s hard to argue with the fact that he has never finished worse than second in any race that he has run. Conveyance has a perfect starting gate right in the middle of the field at #10. He’s got a tremendous bloodline, with the great Holy Bull sitting there in his lineage. There have been a number of champion racers that have come through Holy Bull in one form or another, and Conveyance may be the next in line. Trying to weed his way through this field will be difficult, but there is no doubt that Conveyance has the tools and the stamina to be able to win the Kentucky Derby.

Ice Box (10/1 at BoDog Sportsbook): This is probably a great price on a horse with a lot of upside and potential. Ice Box won the Florida Derby and has a tremendous sire in Pulpit, who has both won and produced a number of champion horses. The question is whether or not he can make it the mile and a quarter or not. A rail post position at #2 won’t bother Ice Box that much, as he is going to be content to just fall straight to the back of the pack and stay out of trouble anyway. Trainer Nick Zito is a multiple time Kentucky Derby winning trainer, and he knows what it takes to get his horse the bed of roses at the end of the day. If you’re looking for a closer to make a huge move and try to steal this race at its conclusion, Ice Box is your colt.

Dublin (16/1 at BoDog Sportsbook): Trainer D. Wayne Lukas knows that he hasn’t seen the potential of Dublin quite yet in his prep races. Once a heralded young gun, Dublin is a horse that has come up short a number of times. He does have his necessary stakes win at the Hopeful as a two year old, but he hasn’t crossed the finish line first in any of his other prep races at this level. Of course, neither had last year’s winner, Mine That Bird, before he shocked the world at 50/1 and won the Kentucky Derby in 2009. 2010 could be the year for Dublin and for Lukas, as this horse just needs to find one more kick to best this field. At 16/1, this is a tremendous price for a colt that has never gone off at more than 9/2 in any race that he has run.
