2009 Belmont Stakes Odds: Mine That Bird odds favorite

 The last leg of the Triple Crown is upon us this weekend, the 2009 Belmont Stakes and what better time to check on the odds on the contenders, considering the best odds on the horse races are usually offered a couple of days ahead of the race, in the case, the Belmont Stakes odds. Since the Belmont Stakes race is for three-year-old colts and geldings, we will not be able to enjoy the presence of the Preakness winner Rachel Alexandra, which pretty much makes Mine That Bird, the Kentucky Derby winner, the odds-on favorite contender to win the 2009 Belmont Stakes.

 Of course, it was hardly a surprise to see that Mine That Bird is indeed the top favorite contender, after we visited our favorite online racebook Bodog Sports to see how the 2009 Belmont Stakes are fairing. At the bookie Mine That Bird is way ahead of the competition with odds to win the Belmont Stakes at 4/3. His arch-rival this year, Dunkirk, is listed with 9/2 odds to win the Belmont Stakes, but a newcomer, Charitable Man, is holding the second best Belmont Stakes odds at 10/3. The rest of the 2009 Belmont Stakes contenders are holding double-digit payout odds, Luv Gov being the underdog with 25/1 odds to win the Belmont Stakes this weekend. Here is the full list of the 2009 Belmont Stakes odds and contenders as posted by Bodog Sports:

Mine That Bird - 4/3
Dunkirk - 9/2
Charitable Man - 10/3
Chocolate Candy - 10/1
Flying Private - 15/1
Mr Hot Stuff - 15/1
Brave Victory - 20/1
Miners Escape - 20/1
Summer Bird - 12/1
Luv Gov - 25/1

 It's only common sense that these Belmont Stakes odds will change as the race inches closer and the horse racing bettors start placing their wagers on the last leg of the Triple Crown. So if you like the odds you see right now, especially on the top three contenders, it may be the best time to lock in those betting numbers early. Of course, we will keep updating our readers on the latest changes in the Belmont Stakes odds, as well as any news from the racecourse which may have impact on the Belmont betting.
