Tiz the Law Emerges as 2020 Kentucky Derby Betting Favorite

2020 Kentucky Derby Betting Favorite

A clear difference is immediate for the 2020 Kentucky Derby. “The First Saturday in May” is a venerable phrase in gambling. Specifically, that phrase is automatically associated with the Kentucky Derby. Normally Derby Day is held at that time. However, 2020 has brought us a laundry list of the New Normal. And the Kentucky Derby is part of this improvisation. The first Saturday in September is Derby Day for 2020. One thing hasn’t changed. World-class horses, jockeys, and trainers will take part. Hence those that bet on horses will find Saturday’s lineup first class all the way.

2020 Kentucky Derby CashBet Wagering Analysis

Commencing with “Prep Season” did Tiz the Law catch sportsbook attention. Gamblers quickly bet this horse to win the Derby months in advance. With the possible exception of Honor AP there hasn’t been such a public horse. Of course, bargain hunters and sharps will look elsewhere. Fresh on their minds is Country House coming in at 65/1 to win the 2019 Kentucky Derby. Also remembered is 2009 winner Mine That Bird at 50/1.

Tiz the Law Brings Understandable Status

Overall Tiz the Law has won six of his seven Horse racing betting starts. This three-year-old colt has won three consecutive Grade 1 races. August 8, 2020, was the Travers Stakes at Saratoga. Tiz the Law won the mile and a quarter race. Correlate that is the same distance as Saturday’s Kentucky Derby. Tiz the Law won the June 20 Belmont Stakes. And the March 28 Florida Derby. His other Grade 1 start was an October 5, 2019 win at the Champagne.

So too does Barclay Tagg have a 2003 Kentucky Derby win. He is best known trainer of Funny Cide. Tagg has wins at the Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes. At age 82 Tagg remains in the elite class.

Art Collector Top Public Alternative

Also, with the hot hand is Art Collector. Five consecutive wins have catapulted the colt to second choice. Art Collector won his most recent race on August 9. Ellis Park Derby was a mile and an eighth in length. Previously Art Collector won the Grade 2 Blue Grass Stakes on July 11. Some gamblers worry that this is Art Collector’s first Grade 1 start.

Honor AP Brings Grade 1 Success

To be exact Honor AP became a Horse betting favorite at the Santa Anita Derby. AP Honor won that Grade 1 race on June 6. Further the colt finished second at the Grade 2 San Felipe Stakes on March 7.

Authentic Rides for Baffert

Namely, Bob Baffert is the hottest trainer in the game. Baffert commands premium pricing due to his name brand. Consider a resume with five Kentucky Derby and two Triple Crown wins. Baffert has seven Preakness and three Belmont victories. He has won three Breeders’ Cup Classics. Cause by this is immense name recognition. The last time out for Authentic was a Grade 1 win at the Haskell Stakes on July 18. Authentic finished second at the Santa Anita Derby. March 7 was a Grade 2 win at the San Felipe Stakes.

Max Player in Range with Potential Value

Late on Max Player has a hack to back Grade 1 third-place finishes at the Travers and Belmont Stakes. Hall of Fame trainer Steve Asmussen still seeks his first Kentucky Derby win. He could well complete his resume on Saturday.
