Underdogs With Best Chance To Win The Kentucky Derby

Usually, when we are this close to the Kentucky Derby, there is always a clear favorite to win the race. However, in 2018, there are no clear favorites as Kentucky Derby betting odds have changed multiple times in the past couple of months.

With no real clear cut favorite, we decided to look at some of the underdogs with the best chances to win the 2018 Kentucky Derby.

2018 Kentucky Derby Betting Odds Online

Here are a list of current Kentucky Derby betting odds for the top 3 favorites to win the 144th Kentucky Derby.

Gold Town (75-1)

Gold Town already has a big win this year, winning the United Arab Emirates Two Thousand Guineas this month. However, he will have to win the United Arab Emirates Derby, and get the 100 qualifying points from the race to make it to the Kentucky Derby.

If Gold Town makes the Derby, history isn’t on his side because no Dubai-based horse has been successful at the Derby. However, Gold Town boasts a strong pedigree and shouldn’t have any problem performing well at the Kentucky Derby.

Why Heck Yeah Has the Second Best Betting Odds

Heck Yeah (75-1)

Heck Yeah has won all three races he has been entered in, but they have all been restricted to California bred horses. He will enter a Kentucky Derby points race in his next start, which will provide a better idea of just how good he is against top competition. If he does well in the qualification races, expect his odds to change.

Justify (300-1)

Justify is another Bob Baffert trained horse, and he was impressive in his debut, winning at Santa Anita on Feb. 18. Even though he doesn’t have the pedigree of some of the top contenders in the Derby, he looked very good in his debut and will get more chances to show what he is capable of during the qualification races. If Justify does well in the qualifications, he will go from one of the biggest underdogs to one of the top contenders in the Derby.
