How to Bet the Kentucky Derby: A Beginner’s Guide

He’s dominated all the races he’s run so far and all eyes will be on him. If you’re in it for the thrill of victory alone (and not the money), he’s a good bet.

Betting on Your Picks: “I’ll take $2 to win on the four horse, please.”

In horse racing, you need to bet on what place the horse will come in. If your horse comes in any of those positions, you’ll get money.

If you’re sure you’ve got the winner and you only want to place a simple bet for him to come in first, go ahead and bet your money that way. If you’re not going to be in Louisville for the big day, you can head to your local racetrack or off-track betting outlet and place a bet there.

You’ve got your mint julep and your fancy hat ready for the Kentucky Derby, but are you ready to place your bet on the horse you think will win?

Picking a Horse

There are 20 horses in the field for the Kentucky Derby, though as of now only 19 will be running Saturday (#11 Hopportunity was “scratched.”) All the horses are 3-year-old male thoroughbreds, which means they’re young horses with lots of talent that is still developing and not a ton of experience.

Many casual bettors will pick a horse based on name or looks, but there are better ways to judge the odds for whether a horse has a shot at winning. The words “first, second, and third,” are replaced by “win, place, and show.” If you think your horse is pretty good but not going to come in first, you can bet that he will “place,” — that is, come in first or second. Saturday. You can place your bet anytime up until about 20 minutes before the race goes off at 6:24 p.m. Each horse will have a record of recent races he’s run, what place he finished, and how far ahead of the other horses he was. Like it’s name implies, the superfecta pays out big bucks if you manage to get it right.

Now it’s off to the races. A horse that goes into the race with 50-1 odds but comes in first place will pay out the most money to the bettor. Good luck racing fans!

Like all sports, horse racing has its own language that can be confusing to casual watchers. Or you can bet that he will “show,” — that is, come in first, second, or third. Say, “I’ll bet $2 on (horse’s name or number) to win.”

If you’re done with the beginner stage of betting, you can up your odds of winning by doing more complicated bets that yield bigger payouts: exactas, trifectas, and superfectas. It looks something like this: Vicar’s In Trouble (20-1).

Horses with a high first number (like 20-1 or 50-1) are considered unlikely to win the race. Horses with lower first number (10 and down) are considered top contenders.

Betting on a horse with good odds will not pay out much money if they win. What’s a superfecta anyway, and how do you bet one?. You’re trying to hit the sweet spot: a horse with okay odds who you think has a shot at winning.

The favorite going into this weekend is California Chrome, with 5-2 odds. Conversely, betting on a horse with bad odds will pay out a lot of money if they do win. Here’s a quick guide:

Exacta: You pick the two horses you think will come in first and second, in that order.

Trifecta: Pick the three horses you think will come in first, second, and third – in the right order.

Superfecta: You guessed it. Give that a good look to see who’s done well recently.

Look for a horse that has won most of his races by a good length. The Kentucky Derby is one and a quarter miles long, longer than any race these horses have run before, so the winner will need stamina.

Odds and Favorites

When you look at a race form there will be a number in parentheses after each horse’s name.

Here’s our guide to making sense of the Run for the Roses. That number shows what the odds are that the horse will win. Therefore, betting on him won’t yield a big payout. For a superfecta you pick the top four finishers in the right order

A dream come true: World’s most incredible bets

The Italian rider got the record-breaking day underway with a win on the aptly named three-year-old colt, Wall Street.

In 1996, jockey Frankie Dettori left bookmakers in tears after defying 25,000-1 odds of winning all seven races at Britain’s Ascot Festival.

In the late 1980s a consortium of Sydney bookmakers joined forces to accept Packer’s awesome bets, which could be around $5 million on a single race.

But the bookmakers were rubbing their hands at Sydney’s Golden Slipper Stakes in 1987 when Packer lost around $7 million throughout the day — including $2 million on his own horse, called Christmas Tree — reported Melbourne newspaper The Age.

Dettori’s magnificent seven

The Irishman could have been accused of letting his heart rule his head when he bet $75 on all five of his boss’s horses winning.

But Murphy happily proved the skeptics wrong, scooping $1.5 million in an accumulator — a single bet which relies on all horses winning.

Story highlightsLegendary billionaire gambler JP McManus big player at CheltenhamMore than $820m bet at four-day British horse racing festivalTop betting stories include stable boy turned millionaireLucky punter who won $1.5m on horse called A Dream Come True

For a legendary gambler who thinks nothing of betting a million dollars on one horse, Irish businessman JP McManus is by all accounts a surprisingly reserved man.

It was a rare victory for the thoroughbred, who won just 10 of his 62 races.

Nicknamed the “Sundance Kid” for his bold gambling, McManus famously won $1.3 million in just one day at Cheltenham in 2006, in series of wagers with similarly daring bookmaker “Fearless” Freddie Williams.

As Cheltenham wraps up for another year on Friday, CNN’s Winning Post takes a look at five of the most incredible horse racing betting stories of all time.

Stable boy-turned-millionaire.

Despite the 2,000,000-1 odds, every horse won, granting the gambler a whopping $1.5 million windfall.

This time last year, 29-year-old Conor Murphy was a stable boy — until one lucky bet at Cheltenham changed his life forever.

If ever there was an opportunity to step back in time and place a bet, it would surely be on the Kentucky Derby’s 1913 winner Donerail.

The three-year-old colt remains the highest odds winner in the history of the race, placed at 91-1, said the Kentucky Derby Museum.

One hundred years ago, those putting $2 on Donerail would have collected $184.90 in winnings. “He’s one of those faces that when he walks into a betting ring, everyone is wondering what he’s going to do.

“But you’d never believe he’s such a big, brazen better — he’s very polite, very unassuming, a real gentlemen.”

He became the first person in Britain to win £1 million ($1.5 million) in a betting shop.

One lucky punter, Darren Yeats, placed a £59 ($89) accumulator bet on all of Dettori’s races — despite being warned off by his wife.

Surprise winner Donerail pulled away at the last stretch, setting a new track record with a time of two minutes and four seconds, beating his nearest rival by half-a-length. He’s got balls of steel when it comes to placing bets,” says Barry Orr, spokesman for Betfair, the world’s biggest online betting exchange.Now worth an estimated $1 billion, the 62-year-old property mogul and horse owner was a big player at this week’s Cheltenham Festival — one of the biggest betting events in the Britain.

Described as the “Olympics of jumps racing,” more than $820 million is bet during the four-day festival, with many punters taking their lead from the almost-mythical McManus.

“McManus is a legendary figure because of how brave he is,” Ladbrokes bookmaker David Williams says.

A Dream Come True

It started with a horse called Isn’t That Lucky and ended with one called A Dream Come True, for one lucky punter from Yorkshire in Britain.

In 2008, the unnamed man placed just 75 cents on eight horses winning in an accumulator bet, said the BBC. By today’s standards, it’s roughly the equivalent of placing a $46 bet and getting $4,300 back.

Five years later, Ascot erected a lifesize bronze statue of the jockey at the entrance of the famous racecourse, in honor of his historic wins.

But the bold gamble paid off and Yeats left the track £550,000 ($830,000) richer.

“The atmosphere in the winners’ enclosure was amazing,” Nick Smith, head of public relations at Ascot, told CNN.

“We actually had champagne for him after the sixth win, and then after the seventh the whole place just erupted.”

It’s become one of the fabled wins in horse racing history — and the elusive dream that lingers in the back of every punter’s mind.

Packer, who had an estimated fortune of $6.7 billion at the time of his death in 2005, was a legendary figure on the track who struggled to find individual bookmakers with enough money to take him on.

Australian media tycoon Kerry Packer wasn’t known as “The Big Fella” of gambling for nothing, famously halving betting odds in a matter of minutes with his million-dollar wagers.

Murphy placed the wager online three months before the race, giving him greater odds — and greater returns — than those betting on the day.

The huge windfall helped finance his lifelong ambition of working as a trainer in Louisville, home of the prestigious Kentucky Derby, he told British newspaper The Telegraph.

Against the odds

The biggest loser

From humble beginnings as a bookmaker, McManus earned a reputation as the fearless man on the track who would take on any wager — no matter how big.

“He’s an absolute legend

Casino-Gaming :: Great Sports Book

Credit card accepting was a breeze, which can be difficult on most sites, but at sportsbook it was fast an easy. That was sportsbook.com. You should check it out. For free!!! It takes like 10 minutes and you might actually win, which I thought was cool. And playing around with 5 bucks I was able to turn that money into 150 bucks. . So I noticed that right off the bat as by far the biggest advantage that sportsbook has on their competition. All in all I think this sports book is top notch and will keep my business for a while. Another thing I started to notice, especially on basketball games, is that they got their odds out faster than other sites.

Other things that Sportsbook.com has going for itself, is that they had some neat flash casino games. Such as the perfect parlay, which is free to play, for the NFL and if you pick all the games right you get 100,000 bucks. This is an advantage when you want to do some research before you go and lay money down. I didn’t have to call anyone or set up new accounts on netTeller, or anything. As a few weeks went by I started to notice that they have some really great promos. They also have cash back on losing bets for the playoffs, and some special basketball promos as well. But If you do so Please visit them through my site listed in resources, its only fair since I told you about them and how good they were to me.

I have used many sports books that are online these days, and for the most part they seem good, but one sports book in particular stood out to me.

Then I started to notice that when ever me and the guys got around to watch some college football, that my odds were lower than theirs. So i figured since I had this extra cash I might as well go and play some Hold’em, which was nothing special but a fast download. But sometimes it was 1/2 a point, which is the difference between a push and a loss or a win!! Thats a big deal when you have a couple hundred riding on the game. I will do their sports book a favor and not mention who they use. Which of course is all just dumb luck on a silly slot machine I was fooling with

Place your bets at Monmouth Park? A lot less did this year

Attendance and betting have fallen at New Jersey’s racetracks in recent years, and many officials and some lawmakers have strongly supported calls to add casinos and other expanded gambling opportunities.

Sports betting also has been strongly opposed by the four major professional sports leagues and the NCAA, who feel it would damage the integrity of the games and lead to a higher incidence of game-fixing.

Monmouth Park also has been very involved in efforts to bring legal sports betting to New Jersey. The tracks in the Mid-Atlantic region need to figure out a way to share the horse colony.”

Monmouth Park adviser Dennis Drazin says the decision not to allow a casino there and a shortage of horses in the Mid-Atlantic region is hurting the track, which is hosting a 57-day meet this year with live racing held on weekends and holidays. But on-track handle fell to $1,519,687 this season, a decrease of 32.8 percent.

With Monmouth Park getting around 20 cents on every dollar wagered on-site, that means the track saw about $149,000 less in revenue this year.

“There’s a horse shortage; all tracks are suffering the same things we are right now,” Drazin said. (AP) — It was a rough Memorial Day weekend for Monmouth Park.

There was $7,752,605 bet on races at Monmouth Park from bettors across the country this year. That’s down from more than $15 million last year.

Bettors wagered $2,264,176 at the track last year. The track held a similar 58-day meet last year.

Monmouth Park held live racing from Saturday through Monday and again hosted the Jersey Shore Food Truck Festival this year, but attendance was down to approximately 42,000. But the state’s efforts have been stymied by a 1992 federal law that restricted sports betting to Nevada, the only state to allow betting on individual games, and three others that had approved limited multigame parlay pools.

OCEANPORT, N.J. “The future is a circuit where we’re not all running against each other and all the tracks are better off. Last year, attendance was more than 60,000.

The Asbury Park Press reports (http://on.app.com/280cqLk) that attendance and wagering were down big at the Oceanport racetrack over the three-day holiday weekend compared to last year.

Betting on basketball akin to investing.

If Pepperdine covered, we’d both win $120.

I, however, was not so wise. It was totally irrational. (Go Quakers!) Part of me wants to bet big on Penn (they were four and a half point underdogs as I wrote this) so I can reap the financial rewards when they win. There are even ways to hedge and minimize your losses if you really know what you’re doing. You can’t actually make bets – - they’re only for “entertainment purposes” – - but many of us were left scratching our heads about the favorites for the major awards.

It would have been nice to be able to make real bets on the Oscars though. I was convinced that Pepperdine would cover. Just goes to show that you can’t discount the importance of luck any time you put your money to work.. What if I bet on Penn with the spread and they don’t win but lose by only three? Would it make me happy to profit from a Penn defeat? This is too disturbing a thought to consider any further.

That’s what sleep deprivation does to you folks.

I reacted quite angrily any time one of the CBS announcers said a bad thing about a team I bet on. If Wake Forest won by more than 4 points he would lose his parlay bet but win $20 on the Wake bet. Pepperdine, a 4-point underdog, played after these two games were finished. All three teams had to cover in order to win the bet, which paid off at odds of 6 to 1. Grrr)

Most of my friends and fellow gamblers that I talked to would stick to betting on games with the spread but I foolishly followed the venture capital style of investing in college basketball. Hey, I actually thought the Waves would win the game outright (similar to how many investors were convinced back in early 2000 that tech stocks could only go higher and higher) and even have a chance of upsetting Oregon in the second round. Gandalf, baby!”

Odds for the Oscars

All in all, I made six bets on Thursday and won none, for a total loss of $100. I maintain that getting too emotional about a stock is not a good thing. Kent State and Missouri both covered. “Best bet on the board?” observed my friend Jamey Tesler, “Ian McKellen for Best Supporting Actor at 6-1. OK, there certainly has been some point shaving in the past – - the City College of New York scandal of the 1950s comes to mind – - but that doesn’t even come close to the scam that was Enron.

Betting on basketball isn’t even as risky as you might think. Penn didn’t cover, losing by 7 after this story was published. You don’t have to worry about whether or not Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski set up special purpose entities in order to keep some of star player Jason Williams’ turnovers off the stat sheet. But after spending most of Thursday watching college basketball at the Paris Casino’s sports book in Las Vegas, I can safely say that betting on the NCAA Tournament has a lot in common with investing in stocks.

Hoops junkies pore through the stats published in the USA Today college basketball special pullout section (an essential purchase for any NCAA fan) with the same amount of rigor that accountants use to audit financial statements.

My friend, being a prudent lawyer, decided to bet $22 dollars on Pepperdine’s opponent, Wake Forest. But another part of me is slightly worried. It’s kind of like making a covered call on an option, selling the right to buy shares at a certain price while also having a long position on the stock.

(Disgruntled writer’s note: As it turned out, my fears were for naught. (The spread is the number of points that the favored team is expected to win by while parlays are wagers that allow you to bet on several games in order to increase your payout.) And just as a market neophyte would be confused by a streaming quote feed, the rows of neon numbers on a sports book’s massive board is certainly overwhelming for the uninitiated.

LAS VEGAS (CNN/Money) – This will be blasphemy to hardcore followers of Wall Street, those who think of the market as a rational way to try and accumulate wealth. Huh? Ewan McGregor singing Elton John (quite badly I might add) is more worthy of the cinema’s highest honor than The Lord of the Rings, Gosford Park or In the Bedroom? Whatever.

Speaking of auditing, the fact that stats in college basketball cannot be manipulated is actually a reason why betting on a college basketball game might be a wiser move than buying a stock. Pepperdine was competitive for the entire game but missed some crucial shots in the last few minutes (the bitter loser in me would say that they choked) and lost by eight.

Why betting is better than investing

Betting on sports is legal in Nevada and most of the casinos in Vegas have a section called the sports book where people place their bets and watch the games. When the color commentator pointed out that Tulsa is a small team, I probably did not need to act as if he was insulting my mother.

When it comes to sports, the numbers for the most part don’t lie. A sports book during the height of March Madness is a wild, profane, testosterone-charged pit fueled by greed and fear. Betting the money line means you think a team will win the game outright, regardless of the spread.

Moulin Rouge was listed at 3-1 to win Best Picture: the second favorite behind A Beautiful Mind. So it would essentially be a wash. A friend of mine and I placed the same $20 bet on a 3-team parlay: Kent State, Missouri and Pepperdine. Example. Kind of like the way VCs invest in many risky companies with the hopes of having one big initial public offering make up for all the flops, I made several “money line” bets on huge underdogs. But I, hate to admit, am a bit of a hypocrite in this regard.

Like investing, gambling has a lingo that you need to learn in order to be successful. Sounds exactly like the trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

With that in mind, I have no idea what to do when my beloved alma mater Penn plays California on Friday. I occasionally get angry emails from readers who disapprove of negative comments I make about stocks they own. Instead of P/E ratios and mutual funds, you have “point spreads” and “parlays”. Kansas (boy did Holy Cross give the Jayhawks a scare!) isn’t going to announce that the NCAA is investigating it for improperly recognizing hundreds of points scored in Big 12 games from 1999.

In addition to the NCAA action, you can also get odds for the Oscars. So I did not hedge. Some of the odds did seem pretty good. Fortunately, a $100 windfall at a blackjack table that day kept me even for the day.

There’s also the emotion factor

How the Sports Betting Line is Made by RJ Bell

Oddsmakers have to determine if any changes are necessary and send out an “adjusted line.”

Once a game’s power rating based pointspread is determined, the oddsmaker will make adjustments to that line after considering each team’s most recent games played and previous games played against that opponent.

“The main objective is that our clients get equal action on both sides,” Seba said. Examples of non-game factors that would require an adjustment to a team’s power rating are key player injuries and player trades. Seba explained that it all starts with each oddsmaker creating a line on each game based upon their own personal approach. Also, adjustments are made after reading each team’s local newspapers to get a sense of what the coaches & players are thinking going into the game.

Individual books having players who consistently bet with certain tendencies (such as an extreme bias toward favorites or toward a certain popular team like USC)

Once betting begins, sportsbooks can adjust the line at any time. People think it’s much more complicated, but it’s not.”

Since the oddsmaker’s ultimate goal is equally dividing the betting action, public perception and betting patterns must be taken into account. Mike Seba is a Senior Oddsmaker at LVSC and has been making lines for the last six years. This usually includes having up-to-date power ratings on each team. In doing so they attempt to make more attractive the team that is getting less action. For example, the public might have heavy betting interest week after week on a popular college football team such as USC.

How the Opening Line Is Made

Oddsmakers can also change the line depending on various event-related factors such as player injuries or weather.

Contributed by:

“The #1 thing for us is to make a line for each game that creates good two-way action.

“You either have a passion for it or you don’t,” Seba said. “We’re not trying to pick the team that covers the spread, we’re trying to make it a coin flip, a tough decision (for the bettor).

Why the Line Changes

A round-table discussion among the 4-5 oddsmakers involved in making the line for each sport is then conducted and a consensus line is decided upon by the Odds Director before it is released to the sportsbooks. If we’ve done that, we’ve done our job.”

Moving the line is the oddsmaker’s effort to balance betting action, and often times such moves can have a major impact on a bettor’s decision. That is not the case at all – their intent is NOT to evenly split the ATS result between the teams; rather, their goal is to attract equal betting action on both sides.

What Is the Line Trying to Accomplish?

The last step in the line-making process for each oddsmaker is taking one final look to determine whether or not the line “feels right.” This is where common sense and past experience with how games are bet enters into the picture. Oddsmakers at LVSC are professional sports junkies who love what they do and would probably do it for nothing if you asked them, but they do get paid for it. Each of these oddsmakers bring unique opinions, strengths and weaknesses to the process.

The purpose of these adjustments, like all line adjustments, is to more equally divide the betting action. Of course there is an entire method to the madness on how the opening line is created. If an oddsmaker comes up with a preliminary line of USC -7, then an adjustment up to -7.5 or -8 would be made in response to the public’s expected USC bias.

Divided action means the sportsbook is guaranteed a profit on the game because of the fee charged to the bettor (called juice or vig – typically $11 bet to win $10).

Las Vegas Sports Consultants (LVSC) is the world’s premier oddsmaking company and the most respected authority on making the lines. By moving the line, sportsbooks can influence how the public bets on a particular game.

There is a common misconception that point spreads represent the oddsmakers’ prediction of how many points the favorite will win by.

Experts working for the individual books having a strong opinion on the game . Obviously, if the line comes out a week ahead of the event (which is the case in football), there is much that could happen during the week leading up to the event that could affect the line. Stated another way, they want to create a line that half the people find appealing to bet one way while the other half find it appealing to bet the other way (known as ‘dividing the action’). The power ratings are adjusted after each game a team plays. In our extended interview, Seba explained that there are 4-5 oddsmakers assigned to make lines for each of the major sports (pro & college football and basketball; MLB, NHL, boxing, golf). By necessity their approach is very research-oriented and concise, since with millions of dollars at risk there is little margin for error. We do this by drawing from past experiences and applying them to current situations. Of the 4-5 oddsmakers, generally the 2 most respected opinions are weighed more heavily by the Odds Director before he decides on the final line.

Once the opening line is released by LVSC, the individual sportsbooks decide if they want to make any adjustments before offering it to the public.

For example, if the pointspread on a game is 7 and most of the money is coming in on the underdog (taking the +7), sportsbooks will then move the number down to 6 ½ to try and attract money on the favorite. Reasons for such adjustments include:

Power ratings are the oddsmaker’s value of each team and are used as a guide to calculate a “preliminary” pointspread on an upcoming game.

The opening line is the first line created by the oddsmakers, which is then sent out to sportsbooks
