Kentucky Derby Betting

I'm not the greatest horse handicapper, but I did have Barbaro across the board in last year's Kentucky Derby (before everyone fell in love with him).

This year, I walked down to the OTB and placed a number of bets for family and friends... For myself, I took the 6 horse, Cowtown Cat across the board. At 20-1, I don't think that it's a bad bet.

Cowtown Cat is running out of the 6th post position and has what I think is a strong competitive streak in him. He won his last two by a few lengths and has shown constant improvement over his racing life. He'll need to improve here to win this one, but I like him at 20-1.

If you are looking to bet the Derby online, BoDog is offering track odds on all horses.

Good Luck and enjoy the Derby.

Monday Baseball Bets

14-25-4, -9.3 units YTD

Another winless day on Saturday. Looks like I've officially started the season in a hole... Well, I'll work to dig out of it.

I know it looks like I'm chasing here, but I'm not. These are all 2 unit dogs based off of line movement and a few other factors. I really don't like betting big into a losing streak, but these are plays I have confidence in. I don't expect to win them all, but these plays have value.

2 units:
Philadelphia Phillies +130
J Lieber -R must Start T Hudson -R must Start

St Louis Cardinals Money +113
K Wells -R must Start J Suppan -R must Start

Baltimore Orioles +128
D Cabrera -R must Start J Bonderman -R must Start

Texas Rangers +180
V Padilla -R must Start R Halladay -R must Start

Kansas City Royals +143
J Lackey -R must Start O Perez -L must Start

Good Luck.
