Kentucky Derby odds: Latest odds on the 2009 Kentucky Derby

One of the most popular sporting event this year, the 2009 Kentucky Derby, is just a day away and now is the best time to check out the latest odds on the Kentucky Derby contenders. We have witnessed large swings in the 2009 Kentucky Derby odds during the past two weeks, but one factor has been a constant - the favorite contender to win the 135th Kentucky Derby. We have followed the Kentucky Derby odds at one of the most popular online racebooks, Bodog Racebook, where the odds on the contenders to win the Derby have always favored "I Want Revenge". Ever since the Kentucky Derby odds were posted, I Want Revenge opened with 5/1 odds to win and today the 3-year-old remains the odds-on favorite contender in the Kentucky Derby to win the prized race, now with 3/1 odds.

 But unlike previous betting odds on the Kentucky Derby, this year we don't have that "ultimate favorite" we are so used to. True, I Want Revenge is holding on to the top betting odds at 3/1, but the other top contenders are right on his tale. Pioneer of the Nile and Dunkirk are both sharing same odds 4/1 to win the famous horse race tomorrow, while Friesan Fire is sitting on 5/1 odds to win. The rest of the Kentucky Derby contenders are paying out on double digit odds, with quite a few underdogs paying out on 50/1 betting odds. You can see the 2009 Kentucky Derby odds on all contenders for the Run for the Roses at Bodog Racebook.

 And what's really interesting, despite the top odds offered on I Want Revenge to win the 2009 Kentucky Derby, the punters all over the world are actually looking for the winner somewhere else, most often the top Kentucky Derby pick is Pioneer of the Nile (4/1 odds). Friesan Fire, who will start from post position #6, is also getting plenty of attention from the horse racing experts today. And looking at the top Kentucky Derby odds, most bettors are left with two choices - pick the odds-on favorite, who is also the 3/1 leader at the Twin Spires, the bookmakers for the Churchill Downs, or go with one of the three top contenders to I Want Revenge. Usually the bettors take the favorite Derby contender hands down, driving the Kentucky Derby odds to less than even payout by this time, not this year, though. Bettors remain divided between the two choices and there seems to be no swings in either direction with odds staying solid for the past 2 days.
