2008 Preakness Stakes Odds: Big Brown at 3/10 odds to win

2008 Preakness Stakes Odds: Big Brown at 3/10 odds to win While the contenders list continue to shrink, the 2008 Preakness Stakes odds remain pretty much the same. Even though betting on the Preakness Stakes 2008 is not expected to reach unheard proportions, it is still part of the Triple Crown and will attract millions of punters from around the world. At the online sportsbook BodogSports, the 2008 Preakness Stakes odds naturally favor the Derby winner Big Brown, holding betting odds on the Preakness at 3/10. This means the bettors would have to wager $100 just to win $30, odds which could reduce the interest in the Preakness Stakes betting this year. With major contenders withdrawing from the Saturday's race (see links at the bottom), Big Brown remains too big of a favorite and his odds will likely continue to get shorter and shorter as post time approaches.

 Following Big Brown, second on the 2008 Preakness Stakes odds sheet comes Behindatthebar, who is sitting on odds 12/1 to win the Saturday's race at Pimlico. Behindatthebar is trained by well-known Todd Pletcher, but not much of a chance is given to him by the experts, comes the race against Big Brown. Still, if the Derby winner fails to deliver at the Preakness, the payouts for the bettors could be enormous - keep in mind that similar mistake was made by the odds makers during this year's Super Bowl. Hey Byrn is third in line to win the 2008 Preakness Stakes, according to the odds posted at BodogSports, with 20/1 payout on a victory. Macho Again is also holding odds 20/1, while Kentucky Bear and Yankee Bravo are with odds 25/1 to win the 2008 Preakness. Every horse after is paying on underdog odds 50/1. Here is the full list of the 2008 Preakness Stakes odds:

Behindatthebar - 12/1
Big Brown - 3/10
Giant Moon - 25/1
Hey Byrn - 20/1
Icabad Crane - 50/1
