Kentucky Derby odds: Early odds available on 2009 Kentucky Derby

 Just over two weeks left until the start of the 2009 Kentucky Derby and we have found the opening betting odds on the Run for the Roses, offering great value to the bettors of the popular horse race. The 2009 Kentucky Derby will be just like any other - the most exiting 2 minutes in sports and the economic troubles will not stop the 2009 Kentucky Derby to be the most popular horse racing event all over the world, again. With two weeks left until the 2009 Kentucky Derby, there are plenty of unknowns and we will begin our full coverage of the race and the contenders shortly, but now is the best time to place the bets on the early odds, while they still offer enormous value, even for the odds-on favorite.

 To maximize the payout for our readers, we have compared the 2009 Kentucky Derby future odds at two of the most popular online sportsbooks - if your favorite contender offers better value at one of the sportsbooks - feel free to lock in the early odds. We will start with the future odds on this year's Kentucky Derby at the online sportsbook Bookmaker (click here for official website), where right now we have 2 odds-on favorite contenders. Both "I Want Revenge" and "Quality Road" share best odds +500 to win the Derby this year. Needless to say that +500 on the favorite Derby contender is an amazing payout: if you bet $100 and win, you will get paid $500. Keep in mind that as the time nears and all contenders became known, as well as the bets start pouring in, those odds are bound to change and the favorite could actually end up paying less than your bet worth. At Bookmaker, following "I Want Revenge" and "Quality Road" come "Dunkirk" and "Pioneer of the Nile", both contenders sharing odds +600 to win the 2009 Kentucky Derby. "Friesan Fire" is next with +700 odds, followed by "Musket Man" at +800 and "Papa Clem" with odds +9000 to win the '09 Derby.

 Checking the future Kentucky Derby odds at the other online sportsbook, BodogLife (click here for official website), we find slightly different betting numbers, although the picture is similar. At BodogLife the favorite is hands-down "I Want Revenge", paying out on 7/2 odds if wins the Derby. This is a perfect example of the reason we compare two of the best online sportsbooks for the future Kentucky Derby odds - clearly if "I Want Revenge" is your favorite Derby contender, you are better off betting at Bookmaker, where you will get +500 payout. But if "Quality Road" is your choice, you should go with BodogLife, where this Kentucky Derby contender is holding longer odds 6/1. "Dunkirk" holds odds 5/1 to win the 09 Kentucky Derby at BodogLife and "Friesan Fire" is sitting on 6/1 odds to win the Derby this year. At BodogLife the odds on "Pioneer of the Nile" to win are at 7/1 and "Papa Clem" is holding odds 12/1 on draping over a blanket of roses.
