Belmont Stakes Betting Strategy and Preview
by CarbonSports - 6/5/2014

The final leg of the Triple Crown is upon us and for the first time since 2008 we've got a horse in California Chrome who has a chance to win the Triple Crown. No horse has won the Triple Crown since Affirmed did it in 1978 and there have been 12 failed tries since then. One of those 12 tries was back in 2012 when I'll Have Another won the Derby and the Preakness but did not enter the Belmont and racing fans had to wait another year for some other horse to give it a go. Well California Chrome is that horse this year and he has looked dominant so far in his first two wins.

Sports Betting Insights: Tips for Betting the Belmont Stakes
by Dave Schwab - 6/4/2014

History could be made this Saturday, June 7, at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York with California Chrome trying to become the first three-year old thoroughbred to win the elusive Triple Crown of horse racing since Affirmed last accomplished this amazing feat back in 1978.

2014 Belmont Stakes Handicapping: Live Long Shots
by Trevor Whenham - 6/3/2014

For a lot of reasons I keep finding myself going back to the 1999 Belmont Stakes when I think about California Chrome and his bid for history this year. I was quite sure Charismatic was going to win the Triple Crown that year, and so were bettors ó though Menifee was bet down more as the second choice than any horse is likely to be this year. Things didnít go as planned, and Charismatic hobbled home third on a broken leg.

2014 Belmont Stakes Pace Scenarios
by Trevor Whenham - 6/3/2014

You might think that the pace in a race as long as the Belmont Stakes doesnít really matter. After all, there is so much time, and so much room to move, that the race should really be a great equalizer ó the best horse should be able to win. The truth, though, is actually surprisingly far from that. In fact, more than the Kentucky Derby or the Preakness, the horses that have done well in this race actually fit into a pretty narrow race profile.

2014 Belmont Stakes Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 6/3/2014

We are getting very close to our latest date with destiny ó California Chromeís shot at the Triple Crown. I havenít yet decided whether I think he is going to win or not ó I go back and forth on it a dozen times a day. While I wonít yet make a prediction on that front, there are three 2014 Belmont Stakes predictions that I do feel pretty good about:

Commissioner Odds to Win the 2014 Belmont Stakes
by Trevor Whenham - 5/27/2014

Joining the solid list of horses who have raced in one or both of the previous Triple Crown races are two fresh invaders from the Peter Pan Stakes, which was held on May 10 at Belmont Park. The winner of that race, Tonalist, will be one of the betting favorites in the Belmont, and the horse that many seem to think can upset California Chrome. Second-place finisher Commissioner is also here, but he comes with far less attention or respect.

2014 Belmont Stakes Handicapping: Fresh Horses
by Trevor Whenham - 5/27/2014

There is a lot of variety to the makeup of the Belmont Stakes field this year ó as is typical most years. Two horses ó California Chrome and Ride On Curlin ó have run in both legs of the Triple Crown already. Kid Cruz and Social Inclusion werenít in the Derby, but they did contest the Preakness and are looking to come back again on reasonably short rest. Then there are seven horses who are coming off a long rest ó three who havenít raced since running in the Derby and four who are poised to make their Triple Crown debut.

Tonalist Odds to Win the 2014 Belmont Stakes
by Trevor Whenham - 5/27/2014

Tonalist is looking to crash the party, beat all the horses with prior Triple Crown experience, and win the Belmont Stakes in just his fifth career start and second stakes outing. Heís an impressive-looking and obviously talented horse, but can Tonalist win the Belmont? More significantly for bettors, what are Tonalistís odds to win the Belmont, and do they offer any value? Letís take a look at that, and at four other factors that will help us decide whether this is a horse worth betting on:

Horses That Can Win the 2014 Belmont Stakes
by Trevor Whenham - 5/27/2014

There are currently 11 horses being pointed to the Belmont ó a cast that has already gone through a lot of changes. While California Chrome is obviously the star, whatís interesting is that it isnít particularly difficult to make an argument for at least eight of the 11 to win the race. The only three I donít really believe in are Kid Cruz, Matterhorn and Matuszak. The other eight, though, are all horses that can win the Belmont ó if everything goes precisely their way on the day.

Kentucky Derby Horses in the 2014 Belmont Stakes
by Trevor Whenham - 5/27/2014

When looking back at the last two decades of history in the Belmont Stakes, one trend stands out above all others ó 14 of the last 20 winners also ran in the Kentucky Derby. Thatís a powerful trend, and there are at least two good reasons that can help to explain it. First, the best three-year-olds are pointed at the Derby, so on average it makes sense that those horses are going to be stronger five weeks later as well. Second, there is no better way to prepare for the difficult task of racing a mile and a half than previously running a mile and a quarter, and the Derby is the only opportunity for three year olds to run that far before the Belmont.

Wicked Strong Odds to win the 2014 Belmont Stakes
by Trevor Whenham - 5/27/2014

Wicked Strong came from seemingly nowhere to win the Wood Memorial, and with that he became a star on the Triple Crown trail. He was the second choice to win the Kentucky Derby, but he ran a troubled fourth. The somewhat disappointing result has lowered expectations for this horse here in the Belmont, though he is still seen as a serious contender according to the odds. So, can Wicked Strong win the Belmont? And, more importantly for bettors, what are Wicked Strongís odds to win the Belmont?

Commanding Curve Odds to win the 2014 Belmont Stakes
by Trevor Whenham - 5/26/2014

When a strong favorite wins the Kentucky Derby, you donít expect the payoffs for the exotics to be that impressive. Thanks to long shot Commanding Curve, however, they were actually pretty solid this year despite the predictable win by California Chrome. Commanding Curve came from the clouds ó both in the race when he came from way back, and in terms of his odds of nearly 38/1 ó to finish second in impressive fashion.

Ride On Curlin Odds to win the 2014 Belmont Stakes
by Trevor Whenham - 5/26/2014

California Chrome is going to get the bulk of the attention ó both from the media and bettors ó heading into the Belmont Stakes. Itís deserving and to be expected. For bettors who arenít interested in bets at even money or worse, though, the search is on for horses that can give the champ a test and potentially deliver some value.

California Chrome Odds to Win the 2014 Belmont Stakes
by Trevor Whenham - 5/26/2014

We are inching closer and closer to the Belmont Stakes. Some years the average sports fan barely even notices. When there is a Triple Crown on the line like this year, though, the sports world pays attention, and the three weeks between the Preakness and the Belmont seem to pass almost impossibly slowly.

2014 Belmont Stakes Handicapping: Distance Factors
by Trevor Whenham - 5/22/2014

The biggest storyline for handicappers to consider every year heading into the Belmont Stakes is the distance. One and a half miles might not seem like much ó and to casual fans it probably doesnít seem much different than the mile distance that is so common in horse racing. For horses, though, the Belmont distance is extremely long. Itís almost certainly the longest distance they will ever run, and itís at least a quarter mile further than they have ever run before.

How to Bet the Belmont Stakes in 2014
by Trevor Whenham - 5/21/2014

Betting the Belmont Stakes is often the easiest challenge of the three Triple Crown races ó though that doesnít always mean it is easy. This year it is going to be far, far from easy. First we have to decide whether California Chrome is good enough to do what 11 horses have failed to do since the last Triple Crown winner in 1978 and win his third race in five weeks. Then we have to figure out how we are going to deal with the microscopic odds weíll face betting on him.

Can California Chrome win the Triple Crown? Odds and Betting Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 5/21/2014

Can California Chrome win the Triple Crown? Absolutely. He has been the best horse by a healthy margin in two Triple crown races already, and he faces a solid but manageable likely field in the third. Why canít he win? I am far from one of those people who believe that we will never see another Triple Crown winner. In fact, given how close we have come before with horses like Real Quiet, Silver Charm and Smarty Jones, I think we are going to see another run of Triple Crowns at some point like we did when the title was claimed in 1973 by Secretariat, and then again in 1977 and 1978 ó and almost again in 1979.
