Key Betting Factors to Consider

Betting on the Breeders Cup can be both exciting and profitable, but it requires careful consideration and analysis. There are several key factors to consider when placing bets on the Breeders Cup.

HORSE STATS & PAST PERFORMANCES: To increase your chances of winning, it’s critical to understand the horses. Assessing their strengths, weaknesses, recent performances, record, and factors such as age, weight, pedigree, and jockey is important.

TRACK CONDITIONS: It's important to study the Breeders Cup track at Pimlico Race Course, which is relatively short compared to other tracks. Familiarize yourself with the track's peculiarities and how they may affect horse performance. Weather is also crucial to consider, with wet or muddy conditions affecting horse performance and dry conditions favoring horses with speed.

RACING ODDS: Another way to increase your chances of winning is by analyzing the odds and identifying undervalued or overvalued horses. Set a budget and stick to it when betting on the Breeders Cup, as horse racing can be unpredictable.

BREEDERS CUP ODDS

Breeders Cup odds, like other US horse races, are pari-mutuel, meaning they are based on public wagering. As more money is bet on a horse, its odds decrease, making it a favorite. Morning line odds estimate the betting public's approach to a race, factoring in the results of major 2023 horse races and the reputations of big-race trainers like Todd Pletcher and Chad Brown.

Although long shots can change this, the Kentucky Derby winner typically becomes the favorite. Horses winning Major Grade I races also attract bettors at Pimlico Race Course. On May 20th, live Breeders Cup odds will be calculated using the pari-mutuel system, with final odds determined by dividing the total betting pool by the amount wagered on each horse.

Monitor race day odds, as they can differ from morning line forecasts, like War of Will's 2019 Breeders Cup win, where his 4/1 morning line odds shifted to 5/1 starting odds. Belmont odds fluctuate significantly on the pari-mutuel system as the event nears, so be prepared for last-minute changes to your picks' odds.


2022 Belmont Results

The 2022 Breeders Cup displayed Early Voting emerging as the triumphant champion in the 147th edition of the race, defying odds and beating the favorite, Epicenter. Jockey Jose L. Ortiz skillfully guided the three-year-old colt to the front of the pack, securing victory in this highly anticipated event. The Breeders Cup is the second race in the Triple Crown series, following the Kentucky Derby and preceding the Breeders Cup. Rich Strike, the surprising 2022 Kentucky Derby winner, opted not to compete in the Belmont, focusing on the upcoming Breeders Cup instead.

I won my sports bet or horse racing bet. Where are my winnings?

Horse racing is one of the most exciting and unique sports in betting, from the Kentucky Derby, to the Breeders Cup, and beyond.

But it can also be a bit complicated sometimes.

FanDuel and all other sports betting providers rely on official statistics and results from the leagues like the NFL or NBA. Horse racing is a little different depending on race course tracks and governing bodies, and it can include post-race inspection, video replay, and much more.

Because of this, it can take a little longer for any winnings to end up in your account following a race compared to other sports. This is called "bet settlement."

We must wait on any official results in case there are no disqualifications or issues with the confirmed outcome of the race.

What kind of bets can I make in the Belmont?

You can make the same kinds of bets on the Breeders Cup that you can on any horse race: straight bets (win, place, show), exotic bets (exacta, trifecta, superfecta, Super High Five), and pick wagers (Daily Double, Pick 3, Pick 4, Pick 5, and Pick 6).

How do I understand the odds?

Betting on horse races is pari-mutuel: this means the odds are based on how people are betting. If more money is bet on a horse, the price will be shorter; if little money is bet on a horse, then the odds will be higher. Note also that odds on American races like the Breeders Cup are phrased in terms of the multiple of profit you will get over the money you originally bet. For example, if a horse wins the Belmont at 5-1 odds, that means the horse will pay $12 to win: $10 worth of winnings, plus your original $2 stake.

Who won the Belmont in 2022?

Early Voting, ridden by jockey Jose Ortiz, won the 147th Breeders Cup on May 21, 2022
