2018 Kentucky Derby Preview & How To Generate More Wagers This Weekend

May 3, 2018 | Horse Racing

The Kentucky Derby takes place this Saturday, May 5 at Churchill Downs. For online bookie agents, Derby Day could provide more action in their online racebooks than on all other horse racing betting days combined.

Check out a preview of the 2018 Kentucky Derby before diving into how agents can increase wagers.

2018 Kentucky Derby Preview

Here are current odds on the favorites to win the 2018 Kentucky Derby.

Justify 3/1

Mendelssohn 5/1

Magnum Moon 6/1

Audible 8/1

Bolt d’Oro 8/1

Good Magic 12/1

Vino Rosso 12/1

The odds imply that Justify and Mendelssohn should run one-two in this year’s Kentucky Derby. It’s difficult to go against the current odds.

The reason is that on paper both Justify and Mendelssohn are standouts. In fact, if one of them doesn’t win the Derby, it’d be shocking. That’s about the best preview that you’re going to get.

You can read as much as you want on the 2018 Kentucky Derby.

The winner will come down to Bob Baffert’s horse, Justify, or Aidan O’Brien’s horse, Mendelssohn.

Pay per head agents should make sure that max betting limits are in place. Kentucky Derby payouts often balloon because there’s so much money in each of the Derby pools.

The best way to ensure profit, more importantly, to prevent massive payouts, is to insist on a total possible to win on the Kentucky Derby.

It should be no less than $1,000. $5,000 might be the highest you want to go.

How to Generate More Wagers on Derby Day

If you have a cap on how much a player can win betting on the Kentucky Derby, how are you going to get players to wager on Derby Day?

Easy. Promote all races besides the Kentucky Derby. The entire Churchill Downs card should yield prices all day. Bettors stand to make a fortune.

Highlighted below are the races at Churchill Downs that you should promote on Kentucky Derby Day.

Humana Distaff — Race 6

Churchill Distaff Turf Mile — Race 7

Churchill Downs Stakes — Race 8

American Turf Stakes — Race 9

Pat Day Mile Stakes — Race 10
