Belmont Stakes Betting

     Belmont Stakes betting odds will not have a horse going for the Triple Crown in 2009 as Mine That Bird won the Kentucky Derby while Rachel Alexandra won the Preakness. Without a Triple Crown on the line, Belmont odds will be wide open with a number of contenders to win this year's race.

Belmont Stakes odds are likely to have Mine That Bird as one of the favorites. The horse finished first in the Derby and was a fast closing second in the Preakness. He should get some attention in Belmont Stakes betting at the sportsbook.

The Belmont Stakes has been called the "Test of the Champion," because it is such a long distance race. As you look to bet Belmont Stakes odds you should look at factors like past performances, class, track conditions and most importantly, stamina. If a horse can't run a distance then they have no chance to win in Belmont odds.

It is not always easy to choose the winner in Belmont Stakes wagering at the sports book. The horses in the Belmont have never run a mile and half and will probably never run that far again. That makes it tough to find a quality horse without a lot of guesswork versus the Belmont Stakes lines at the sportsbook. Sometimes you have the added pressure of a possible Triple Crown if a horse has won the Derby and the Preakness. Even when you have a horse that goes into the Belmont with a chance for the Triple Crown, most of the time the horse fails.

Belmont Stakes odds are a bit different than the other two Triple Crown races. The Derby is a wide open betting affair where longshots rule the day. The Preakness is more of a favorite's race with shorter prices while the Belmont could be anything. You could have a short price horse win or have a closer come from the clouds to hit a big price in Belmont Stakes odds at the sportsbook. That is what makes betting Belmont Stakes odds difficult for many horse racing bettors.

As you are betting 2009 Belmont Stakes odds remember to take a few shots in the exotics. Put together some nice exacta and trifecta boxes and try and hit the big score. That is really the only way to make good money in horse racing and Belmont Stakes odds definitely give you the chance to hit one of those nice payouts.
