Belmont Odds Update and Picks from Two Sources –

June 9, 2022

The third and final horse race in The Triple Crown is this Saturday. And though there is still no shot at an actual Triple Crown three race winner, we do see the return of Rich Strike, the longshot last minute addition to the Kentucky Derby that won it all.

The horse that won the Preakness, Early Voting, is being held out of this race. There is still a very rich field on which to wager however. Though, the field of horses has been trimmed from 11 to just 8.

In this article we want to include some facts about which post positions are best for this race as well as the current betting odds. We also have picks for you to bet.

Which Post Positions Are Best at Belmont?

Simply put, the closer you start to the rail, the better your chances of winning. The #1 post spot has earned victory 24 times. Next in line are the #3 and #5 post positions each having had 15 winners. These spots are followed by #2, #4, and #6 respectively.

Essentially the same three horses but in different order. You can place the bet as an Exacta, ie., to finish in that exact order or the best loses, or you can bet them to finish in any order and the bet pays out less.
