2012 Kentucky Derby favorite: Bodemeister favorite to win

2012 Kentucky Derby favorite: Bodemeister favorite to win The draw is in and the favorite to win the 2012 Kentucky Derby continues to be Bodemeister, this time with much shorter odds.

 With just a few days until the start of the Run for the Roses, the 138th Kentucky Derby, Bodemeister remains the favorite horse to win the first leg of the Triple Crown. Those of you who has been keeping tabs on the Derby odds with us and took our recommendation to lock the betting odds on the 2012 Kentucky Derby early on would've enjoyed a bit bigger payout than the current one. As it stands at this time, the latest 2012 Kentucky Derby odds have Bodemeister favorite with odds 4/1 at the popular sportsbook Intertops to win (as well as most of the Las Vegas sportsbooks and racebooks). Just a few days ago when we last reviewed the 2012 Kentucky Derby, Bodemeister was still sharing favorite spot with Union Rags, but both horses were paying on 9/2, a tad better than the current 4/1 odds on the favorite Bodemeister, but with a large bet that half a point difference could mean hundreds of dollars extra.

 Here is the full list of the 2012 Kentucky Derby odds, as posted by Intertops (don't forget they offer free bets on the Derby this weekend):

Bodemeister 4/1
Union Rags 9/2
Gemologist 7/1
Dullahan 8/1
Creative Cause 9/1
Ill Have Another 11/1
Take Charge Indy 12/1
Alpha 14/1
Daddy Nose Best 14/1
Hansen 14/1
Daddy Long Legs 16/1
El Padrino 18/1
Done Talking 25/1
Went The Day Well 25/1
Optimizer 33/1
Rousing Sermon 33/1
Sabercat 33/1
Liaison 40/1
Prospective 40/1
Trinniberg 40/1

 As you can see, Union Rags and Gemologist continue to be neck to neck with the favorite Bodemeister, a trend which started a couple of weeks ago and hasn't changed much at all. If you don't like to bet the favorite at the 2012 Kentucky Derby, those two contenders could present a great way to make it out big. And again - the odds will very likely change, becoming short for the favorite and the top contenders, so lock them in early.

 And we are going to end today's 2012 Kentucky Derby favorite, contenders and odds preview article with something a bit different - a look at the Derby odds by one of the most popular British online bookmakers, Bet 365 (USA residents are not allowed to open betting account with this bookie).
