How to Bet the Kentucky Derby: A Beginner’s Guide

horses bet, horses betting

Good luck racing fans!

Like all sports, horse racing has its own language that can be confusing to casual watchers. For a superfecta you pick the top four finishers in the right order. Give that a good look to see who’s done well recently.

Look for a horse that has won most of his races by a good length. Here’s a quick guide:

Exacta: You pick the two horses you think will come in first and second, in that order.

Trifecta: Pick the three horses you think will come in first, second, and third – in the right order.

Superfecta: You guessed it. Like it’s name implies, the superfecta pays out big bucks if you manage to get it right.

Now it’s off to the races. Each horse will have a record of recent races he’s run, what place he finished, and how far ahead of the other horses he was. Conversely, betting on a horse with bad odds will pay out a lot of money if they do win. You’ve got your mint julep and your fancy hat ready for the Kentucky Derby, but are you ready to place your bet on the horse you think will win?

Picking a Horse

There are 20 horses in the field for the Kentucky Derby, though as of now only 19 will be running Saturday (#11 Hopportunity was “scratched.”) All the horses are 3-year-old male thoroughbreds, which means they’re young horses with lots of talent that is still developing and not a ton of experience.

Many casual bettors will pick a horse based on name or looks, but there are better ways to judge the odds for whether a horse has a shot at winning. What’s a superfecta anyway, and how do you bet one?

Here’s our guide to making sense of the Run for the Roses. Or you can bet that he will “show,” — that is, come in first, second, or third. He’s dominated all the races he’s run so far and all eyes will be on him. Saturday. Therefore, betting on him won’t yield a big payout. Horses with lower first number (10 and down) are considered top contenders.

Betting on a horse with good odds will not pay out much money if they win. You can place your bet anytime up until about 20 minutes before the race goes off at 6:24 p.m. The Kentucky Derby is one and a quarter miles long, longer than any race these horses have run before, so the winner will need stamina.

Odds and Favorites

When you look at a race form there will be a number in parentheses after each horse’s name. Say, “I’ll bet $2 on (horse’s name or number) to win.”

If you’re done with the beginner stage of betting, you can up your odds of winning by doing more complicated bets that yield bigger payouts: exactas, trifectas, and superfectas. A horse that goes into the race with 50-1 odds but comes in first place will pay out the most money to the bettor. If you’re in it for the thrill of victory alone (and not the money), he’s a good bet.

Betting on Your Picks: “I’ll take $2 to win on the four horse, please.”

In horse racing, you need to bet on what place the horse will come in. That number shows what the odds are that the horse will win. The words “first, second, and third,” are replaced by “win, place, and show.” If you think your horse is pretty good but not going to come in first, you can bet that he will “place,” — that is, come in first or second. If your horse comes in any of those positions, you’ll get money.

If you’re sure you’ve got the winner and you only want to place a simple bet for him to come in first, go ahead and bet your money that way. If you’re not going to be in Louisville for the big day, you can head to your local racetrack or off-track betting outlet and place a bet there.. It looks something like this: Vicar’s In Trouble (20-1).

Horses with a high first number (like 20-1 or 50-1) are considered unlikely to win the race. You’re trying to hit the sweet spot: a horse with okay odds who you think has a shot at winning.

The favorite going into this weekend is California Chrome, with 5-2 odds

I am actually fan of Levski Sofia, this is my team and this is where my heart belongs to. But this is football and that is why we love it so much and love to bet on it… I am convinced it will be a perfect one as one f the best games of this Euro 2016 tournament is about to be played later on. A game that had everything in it. I call it space ship, because we are travelling in the world of bets , sports, live betting and of a recognition of good and noble bookies, which deserve our attention and money.

Good evening , dear friends. When you say Italy and Spain are playing , you figure out fast in your mind such names as : Casillas, Buffon, Di Maria, Baggio, Baquero, Guardiola, Vialli, Maldini, Donadoli, Paolo Rossi and many other. The section great football derbies on the blog has been covered with dust for a period of 6 months. Everyone has it is own world, but we have a lot in common sports and bookmakers offers on different matches in all king of sports. But now I am here and I am about to give and expand the best of me. Since I was a very little boy at the age of 10 , I liked watching Italian football, because of the passion on the stands-fans chanting all the 90 minutes and because all the legends , I have watched – Vialli, Baresi, Donadoni, Nesta, Veron, Bepe Signori , Gabrial Batistuta, Maldini, Schilaci, De Livigho, Nedved, Diego Armando Maradona,Crespo, Roberto Baggio and many more ? Lets take a rest from the Italian football and get concentrated on what we are about to bet and watch today. I have been searching for a long time to for the appropriate games to offer for betting this week. My happiness will be a 100 % sure,when Seria A season in Italy will also be promoted, but this will happen very soon ( 6 days now). One of them was the match between Crvena Zvezda – Ludogoretz. Not only stars, but players and people who have changed and are currently changing the history of football. How do you feel today ? What will your best bet be on the upcoming FA cup games?

Good evening, dear readers and friends. As you can see from the header , the games will be split on two – one from Italy and another from England. But …

Hi , dear all. A whole week labor and effort , may come to a great winning conclusion of the week, even if your team has not taken the needed 3 points or missed the chance to score in the last minute of the game. The football program for today is very rich and intensive, but these two games have gathered my attention. England does not have a good national team, but the UK, Premier League is one of the best Championships around the globe, not only in Europe. As bettors and fans, most of us , had watched all of the games, been to some of the stadiums and made a lot of bet on all popular and not that popular markets. When you see the names of the teams in the header, I guess the first thing that occurs in your mind is – total Spanish dominance. It will be a very interesting and intense weekend, especially when we will be about to watch and get thrilled …

Goo day , dear tipsters, bettors , handicappers or just devoted fans. You saw and read in the heading of the article – immortal powers.. They wanted to scared the “eagles”, but ….. The coaches which have that power as the Roman Emperors did back in the days. I feel it , like a special place, where I would like and I am doing my best to share with you all the experience I have in betting and in different sports. To clean the dust and take everything in order is not such an easy process. It is the end of the football season in all the top 4 European leagues and I feel obliged , I have to say few words about the Champions an the runners up. You may think that this is about the players of the wish for dominance, both giants in sports do have and had. When two teams from the same country have won the top tournaments in one sport, there should be no other parallel. Mala Marakana expected this game for a days now. His glory will reach the most far away parts of our planet, just before you could pronounce his whole name. As from now on, I will be giving you some of my tips as per the odds of betfair.com There are actually 3 bookmakers …. In my experience as a trader, I always preferred to trade live games, not just changing odds for pre- match compiling of figures and stats. Good morning to all, as we are all now keen in expectations of starting of the new season in Premier League. I want to make this blog better with your help. Doubles chance x2 – 1,62 @ bwin. In such cases  , I leave you the free choice to take the direction, which you think should be a correct one. All of us are happy because the UK Premiership had started yesterday.

Good day to everyone. I want to see and read  who is standing on the other hand of the monitor, who you are and why you come back or you never return. But lets try to stick to the main line of the post – the top 4 European countries and their Football Championships:   England – actually , I like most watching football from Italy , but this season was a great surprise what have happened there on the Albion. Actually these are the Championships, which are easiest for me, for predictions. The good manager can leave a permanent sign, a trace for all the next generation of fans, managers and football players all around the continent. Weekend is a special place and time, for us – bettors, punters and sports traders. This post will be about one of the …

Good morning, dear fans. Yesterday night we saw several nice games from the Champions League elimination round, one phase before the true games for entering the Group stage. If it is not, I am always open and friendly to take someone on the board of my space ship. Even some of the home team Ultras went in front of the hotel of the Bulgarians and flamed piro effect, which was very cowardice and mousy thing to do. Unfortunately Italy lost, but other team of Spain was simply hard to be beaten. We, as a sports betting society and team of men and women, searching for the most appropriate outcome, are kind of a strange birds. There has been a lot if interesting moments and game during the past weekend. First game in Razgrad ended 2-2 and no one convinced the visiting squad to be the winner after the second game, which has been expected to be played against 50 000 fanatic fans of the Serbian team. Let’s get started with the betting tips: Tottenham – Liverpool : at first sight appears the market both teams to score @ 1,62 (bet365). Yes, I know now are the Olympics going Rio , but my focus is elsewhere. I will give my best to direct you to winning outcomes and happy …

Hello, dear beloved fans of betting, sports addicted men and women and just visitors of this blog. Sometimes people do not like to get a figure pointed and the right direction. We have been in all the epicenter and now we are expecting Euro 2016 Finals in France. Everyone is free to chose, the most suitable bookie from the banners in my blog. The main fever and how to say, the light of the cameras is always concentrated on the main figures in the top 5 teams, the managers. The theme of today theme is another. Destiny loves to play jokes with us, in the previous round the boys of Jurgen Klopp had made the decent game, winning at Anfield 4-3 against Borussia Dortmund , after the result was 3-1 in the 55 minute of the second game. Liverpool are very strong visiting team and in my opinion they will not lose this game, yes they had hard times at Burnley, but with “hot spurs ” will be a different situation

Children and Sports

sports book, the sports book

This is where the role of the parents and the coaches become important. Soccer

Baseball

Basketball

American football

Hockey

Ice hockey

Running and jogging

Swimming

Bicycling

Martial arts

Tennis and other racket sports

There are plenty more games out there that kids can pick from.

Thus, clearly, playing sports has numerous benefits in a child’s mental and physical conditioning. They should learn how to encourage the child, and should also show the child how to overcome such difficulties. This will also give him the opportunity to pick a sport of his choice.

Role of Sports in the Development of Children

Injuries are a common in most sports, and often this is a result of the child being pushed too hard to succeed. In the following lines, we shall look at the important role that playing sports can play in a child’s life and its development.

Popular Sports for Children

Let’s have a look at some of the many benefits that children can avail by being exposed to sports at a young age.

They get physical exercise, so they are fitter when they grow up.

They understand the importance of teamwork and coordination.

They become stronger and competitive in a health manner, rather than submissive and meek.

They learn to respect other people.

They become more communicative and outgoing.

Their self-esteem gets boosted.

They get exposure to different people and situations.

They realize the importance of working hard.

It is true that not all children experience these benefits, with some even having to go through rejection and teasing because of the same sports that bring all these advantages. Every child has his limits, and he should be allowed to learn a game and develop at his own pace, with a little help alongside from the parents and coaches. Some kids can grow up loving sports, whereas some may grow up hating them. Many parents often make this mistake, and this is something that should be strictly avoided as forcing a child to play a particular game is likely going to have negative repercussions in the future.

It is also important to remember not to push a child too hard to play a particular game. He/she should be allowed to play a game that is suitable for his/her age and liking, and also be able to express opinions and concerns about the particular sport that he/she plays.

There are plenty of choices when it comes to picking a sport that the child will truly enjoy. This is another reason why this matter should be handled with utmost sensitivity.

Here are some popular games that children can take up.

Children usually love playing sports, and it is the responsibility of parents to handle this in the right manner. This can be done by bettering their game and by improving their physical fitness levels.

Young children and sports is a rather delicate combination, and it needs to be handled responsibly. However, it is equally necessary not to push the child too hard. It pays to find a sport that suits the specific skills of a child, and the kid should not be forced to take up a sport that he does like. Apart from this, if the child possesses a natural inclination towards a sport, he/she may even be able to pursue a career in it. It is necessary to help these children overcome anxieties and worries so that they can enjoy the sport that they play and thus benefit from it.. Sports can have a very significant role in the development of a child, and is something that should not be taken lightly.

Inculcating the right values and the spirit of teamwork in kids is something that parents always strive for, and sports have an uncanny way of imparting these values to the kids

Sports betting vs. the stock market: Which is riskier?

betting, sports, sports betting

In the long run, investors have the chance to make more money because there are fewer downside risks.

A stock can theoretically be held onto for an infinite amount of time, but a sports bet can end in the blink of an eye.

. And in neither instance can you be guaranteed to be correct,” said Randall Fine, managing director of The Fine Point Group, one of the casino industry’s largest consulting firms.

But take it from one person who has lots of experience in both worlds. For example, a stop-loss order instructs a broker to dump a stock when it tumbles below a specific price. Heck, even his commercials are funny. The stock might go up and down some, but it typically doesn’t go to zero.

At the same time, investing in stocks actually carries higher upside potential. Which casino in Atlantic City, Las Vegas or Macau pays the bettor 73% of the time?” said Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at S&P Capital IQ.

Such hedging tools are not as readily or even feasible to sports gamblers, Fine said.

Manning is really, really good at what he does for a living.

The betting appeal: Americans bet an estimated $380 billion each year on sports.

And investors have greater access to tools that can minimize the risk of losing money.

Investors also have the ability to spread their money out among many stocks.

“You’re making a wager based on some facts and some intuitions.

“A large, steady company has a low chance of plummeting and causing you to lose all your money, but even Peyton Manning doesn’t cover the spread sometimes,” he said. And of course, they both hate to lose.

Even the unlucky investors who jumped into the market at its peak in October 2007 eventually made their money back when stocks reclaimed their pre-recession levels in 2013. It’s easy to see why fans may be tempted to gamble on their favorite teams and athletes.

“You can hold onto your betting tickets all your life, but you’re not going to get squat,” said Stovall. He asked for his identity to be withheld due to legal concerns.

But don’t let those similarities fool you.

The same can’t be said for those who bet big on the Denver Broncos last Super Bowl.

“Betting is more difficult and riskier,” said one resident of Hoboken, New Jersey, who bets on illegal gambling sites and also invests in stocks.

That’s the percentage of time that Stovall’s research shows the S&P 500 — the gold standard in the stock market — has increased in value during the years since 1926.

They both believe they can predict the future, and they sometimes fall into the trap of making decisions with their hearts instead of their brains. Gambling on sports may be more fun, but it’s definitely a more risky use of money than putting it in the stock market.

Gamblers and investors also have far different time horizons.

“A lot of people regard investing as gambling, but I frequently say no. While many stocks offer steady returns, investors sometimes hit the jackpot (think: buying Apple back in early 2009 or Tesla in 2012).

All or nothing: Gambling on sports tends to be a zero-sum game.

To put it another way, the stock market is a lot more forgiving than the MGM Grand (let alone your local sports bookie).

However, someone sinking $500 into Apple stock has little risk of losing that entire initial investment, especially in the short term. Gambling on football star Peyton Manning to win might seem like a safe bet, especially compared with picking winners in the stock market.

Those are pretty good odds. A bettor gambling on the Green Bay Packers will instantly lose his or her entire $500 bet if Aaron Rodgers and his teammates fail to win or cover the spread. People often invest in funds that buy dozens or even hundreds of stocks, which helps reduce the risk

How To Bet at the Horse Track

horses bet, horses betting

If you fully understand these three basic bets you’ll be prepared. Knowing how to bet properly makes a day at the track even better. If you are going to place a ‘win’ bet I highly recommend you check the odds to make sure the payout will be worth the risk. You can have fun betting at the off-track facilities, especially if you go with a group. For example: “For race 3 I want to bet $2 on horse number 7 to win.”

Making a ‘show’ bet means you are predicting the chosen horse to come in either first, second or third. This bet won’t pay much unless your horse has long odds. At most racetracks they make the ‘place’ & ‘show’ bets visible on the scoreboards. Good luck!

Tips & Warnings

Remember to begin betting with small amounts of money to help get an idea of the odds, payouts and chances of winning.

Also, betting on horse races is only meant to be recreational. Like the ‘place’ bet, you need to make sure the odds you get are specifically for a show bet. Most prefer to make this bet for horses they don’t totally trust.

Basic Bets

Win

The ‘win’ bet is simply that: a bet to call the winner of the race. However, I highly recommend visiting your nearest horse track since the live experience is unmatched in it’s excitement.

Place.

Show

A day at the track is a ton of fun. The following will outline the most basic bets you can make at the track.

Things You Will Need

Most off-track betting facilities offer $2 dollar straight bets. If your chosen horse has 7-1 odds and you make a ‘place’ bet you will not get 7-1 odds if you win. If you go to the race track it is likely they will offer 5 & 10 cent bets on more exotic wagers. It’s important to remember that odds given are mostly for ‘win’ bets. For the risk, that’s really not much of a payout. When I use the ‘place’ bet, it’s typically for horses with longer odds.

To make a ‘win’ bet at the track you’ll need to give the teller this information: race number, horse number, type of bet, amount of bet. Very few dedicated professionals throughout the country can count on handicapping horse races as a source of income.

If you are at the off-track betting facility then you will also need to indicate the location (which horse track) of the race.

When you make a ‘place’ bet you are predicting the chosen horse to come in either first or second place. Again, this bet will not pay much when the odds are too good. For instance, if you choose the favorite to win and the horses odds are 2-1 that means you will get $2 or every $1 you bet. Win bets will be worth the risk if the odds are a little higher.

A day at the horse track is a great time. You will only win this bet if your horse places first in the race. If you bet the smallest amount allowed ($2) your payout will only be $4

The Sportsbook Odds In The Internet Gambling World

sports book, the sports book

solicitors general were on opposite sides of the case, with Paul Clement arguing for the sports organizations and Theodore Olson representing New Jersey.

“We were relying on having sports betting to give a big boost to our ailing Atlantic City casinos and our suffering racetracks,” state Senator Raymond Lesniak, a Democrat from Elizabeth who sponsored the 2014 law and a 2011 voter referendum allowing sports betting, said in an interview. Governor of the State of New Jersey et al, 3rd U.S. government, called the law “yet another attempt” to allow sports betting “only under the conditions of the state’s choosing.”

Nevada bookmakers made $231.8 million on sports betting in 2015, the state has said.

Reflecting the stakes, two former U.S.

“We are reviewing the opinion and considering our options,” said Paul Loriquet, a spokesman for state Attorney General Christopher Porrino.

New Jersey’s law banned wagers on state college teams and limited bets to people age 21 and older at casinos and racetracks.. Circuit Court of Appeals, Nos. 14-4546, 14-4568, 14-4569.

“We do have two judges dissenting,” Lesniak said, “and we certainly will take a shot at the Supreme Court.”

It is also a victory for Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Football League, the National Hockey League and the National Collegiate Athletic Association, which opposed New Jersey’s laws.

The 10-2 decision is a defeat for Republican Governor Chris Christie, who has seen courts void two state laws, including one in 2012, designed to raise revenue through sports betting.

Clement was not immediately available for comment.

Rendell acknowledged the law’s “salutary purpose” in trying to revive those troubled industries, but said PASPA does not unconstitutionally “commandeer” the state.

New Jersey argued that its law amounted to only a “partial repeal” of its prohibitions on sports betting, did not “license or authorize by law” such betting, and could help curb the “thriving” black market in the practice.

A federal appeals court on Tuesday said New Jersey cannot legalize sports betting, in a big defeat for supporters of the years-long effort to allow such wagers in the state.

“Because PASPA, by its terms, prohibits states from authorizing by law sports gambling, and because the 2014 law does exactly that, the 2014 law violates federal law,” Circuit Judge Marjorie Rendell wrote.

The sports organizations, backed by the U.S. The other thought PASPA was unconstitutional because it violated state sovereignty.

The case is National Collegiate Athletic Association et al v. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia said the 2014 law allowing sports betting at casinos and racetracks violated the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, a 1992 federal law prohibiting the practice in all states other than Nevada, Delaware, Montana and Oregon.

One dissenting judge thought the 2014 law permissible despite PASPA. “It’s just wrong for Congress to deny New Jersey what the state of Nevada has.”

Lions’ upset over Saints completes 20,000-to-1 parlay, paying $100K

Parlay betting

She bet that both teams would score more than 45 points. The Patriots and  Seahawks were 14-point favorites and they both won by 17. Her card had the Cardinals and Bengals as four-point favorites, and they won by 23 and 10, respectively.

The final game of the parlay was on Monday night, where she had the Lions as a three-point underdog. Not only did Polia’s payout come through, but a 15-game parlay where bettors just have to pick the winners also hit. “So I thought it was strange when I looked at it [Tuesday] morning and saw that I won.”

Her dream, she says, is to make Vegas a pit stop on the way to owning a beach house in California.

The against-all-odds story gets better: Polia said this is only the second bet she has placed in her life.

The Chargers, as a two-point favorite, beat the Dolphins by 16. A progressive pot of $170,782 was split by 17 people.

Aside from the Giants as five-point underdogs, Polia’s card had the Vikings as a five-point favorite, and they won by 21. They beat the Saints, 35-27.

“I somehow drove back home to tell my boyfriend in person,” Polia said. “Of course, he didn’t believe me.”

Polia said she has loved sports her entire life — a Celtics logo tattoo on her hip is a testament to her love of Boston, which she left because she got sick of the winters.

Polia said, upon hearing the news, she fell to the floor of the law firm where she works in disbelief and, minutes later, said she was going out to lunch.

Thanks to one of the most improbable betting stories, that might happen sooner rather than later.

“On Sunday morning, my boyfriend and I were sitting on the couch talking about how spreads worked,” Polia said. Even though she was getting higher odds for picking against the spread, she said she spent time just picking who she thought was going to win the game instead.

Polia then called up William Hill and the person on the other line informed her that she was picking against the spread. She had the Falcons as a three-point underdog, and the Texans and Redskins as one-point underdogs; they won and covered. They scored 61.

Bogdanovich said the $5 15-team parlay card for $100,000 has hit before. “He was frustrated since I wasn’t getting it right away.”

“I remembered that I picked the  Giants and they lost,” Polia said.

The 26-year-old Polia, who had just moved to Las Vegas two months ago, got 20,000-to-1 odds on the parlay card on betting firm William Hill’s mobile site. The Chiefs, as an eight-point favorite, crushed the Ravens by 20.

The closest game she had was the Steelers, who were six-point favorites on the card, beating the Broncos by a touchdown after spotting Denver a 17-point lead. William Hill paid out a couple times in Delaware, where betting on the cards is permitted.. Polia had the Giants as a five-point underdog.

One of the biggest long shots in betting history will be cashed on Wednesday afternoon when Tayla Polia gets paid $100,005 for her $5, 15-leg NFL parlay that came through this week.

For William Hill sports book director Nick Bogdanovich, this weekend wasn’t a good one, to say the least. She cashed in by being on the right side of the point spread in 14 games and correctly picking the over in the  Steelers/ Broncos game.

An hour later, Polia, with $20 in her account, risked $5 on the parlay. Polia also was required to pick the over or under on that game. The Packers won by 10 as a three-point favorite. The Panthers beat the Giants by three
