2019 Preakness Stakes Betting Odds, Analysis: Power Ranking the Contenders and Live Longshots
With the first four horses to cross the finish line in the 2019 Kentucky Derby bypassing the 144th Preakness Stakes, the second leg of the Triple Crown is shaping up to be a great gaming race.
There are nine new shooters in the area, and four Kentucky Derby returnees (Improbable, War of Will, Win Win Win, and Bodexpress). New shooters have only won the Preakness Stakes four times since the turn of the century, however, at least one has completed in the trifecta at precisely the same rate over precisely the exact same period.
You need to concentrate on the new shooters if you’re playing single race exotics. But this is also a year where one of them has a legitimate shot at winning. If that occurred, it would be the second occurrence in the past three years after Chad Brown’s Cloud Computing won the 2017 Preakness.2019 Preakness Stakes Odds

It also would not be that surprising, given the unflattering results so far of the present crop of three-year-old horses.
Opportunities shift radically from their morning line value. So that horses will provide the most betting value on Saturday?
