Live Odds analysis for the 2017 Kentucky Derby

The latest odds released yesterday have a horse named Always Dreaming with the best odds at 5-1. However, even though he has the best odds to win, many would say that he isn’t really a favorite to win. Always Dreaming is known to be a headstrong horse and even though he ran the best workout time of 59.6 seconds, many say he is uncontrollable when it gets into the heat of the race. Classic Empire and Gunnevera are the next two horses in terms of betting odds at 6-1. However, it is the 4th and 5th horses in betting odds that many consider having the best overall chance of winning. Irish War Cry is sitting at 7-1 and is a very experienced horse that is poised to be in the mix coming down the final stretch on Saturday. Though it is an experienced horse with some big victories in the past, Irish War Cry is always known to produce a dud showing from time to time. So be cautious when betting on that horse.

Speaking of seasoned horses, McCraken is another 3 year old Colt that is trying to start another hot streak at Churchhill Downs this weekend. Before taking a surprising 3rd place at the Blue Grass Stakes last month, McCraken had won his first four races. According to jockey Brian Hernandez Jr., McCraken went into the Blue Grass Stakes with a little bit of a bum ankle and was at 100%. If at full health, you can definitely expect to see McCraken near the front of the pack on Saturday. If close to the lead, this horse has the kind of breakaway speed that can leave other challengers in the dust on the final straightaway.
