Kentucky Derby Props and Matchups

Online Horse Betting Lines

Did you know that you can bet Kentucky Derby props and matchups in addition to the normal Derby wagers? One of the props that usually attract attention is the prop on whether or not a horse will win the Triple Crown. You can also bet whether the Derby winner will win the Preakness or the Belmont. Other props include the margin of victory, the winning time and the sire. Let’s look at some Kentucky Derby props and also a few Kentucky Derby matchups.

Kentucky Derby Props

Will a Horse win the 2018 Triple Crown?
Yes +600
No -900

Most of the action on this prop will be on the Yes, as people like to bet the big plus price. The problem with taking the Yes is that only one horse, American Pharoah in 2015, has won the Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978. If you like the No on this prop you are probably better off betting it after the Derby.

2018 Kentucky Derby Matchups

Justify -155 vs. Good Magic
I picked out four matchups that have some value and I’ll start with this one, as the favorite Justify goes against Good Magic. Justify has done nothing wrong in his career and comes into this race unbeaten and a deserving morning line favorite. Good Magic is not getting good reports leading up to this race and looks to be a go-against horse. We get the favorite against a horse that is said to be struggling a bit. I love this matchup.

Vino Rosso -115 vs. My Boy Jack
These are two of my longshot picks, but I do like Vino Rosso a little better and he should go off at lower odds. I will take Vino Rosso at the short price.

My Boy Jack -115 vs. Enticed
I will hedge a little bit on the previous matchup and take My Boy Jack here. The two horses should go off at similar prices in Saturday’s Kentucky Derby and I think My Boy Jack has a real chance to get in the mix late.

Bolt d’Oro +105 vs. Good Magic
I am going against Good Magic again, as I just don’t understand why the oddsmakers are giving the horse so much respect. Bolt d’Oro should go off at lower odds and we get him at plus money in this
