Unfortunately, because of the size of the race, the distance which is new to every horse, and the general craziness of the Derby, there are also few things tougher than handicapping the pace in the Derby. All you can do, really, is chart where you expect horses to be, try to figure out what it all means, and then hope for the best. http://www.docsports.com/2016/kentucky-derby-wagering-advice-betting-help-pace-scenario-011.html Five to Follow MLB Betting: Wednesday, May 4, 2016, Opening Line Report http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-betting-wednesday-may-4-opening-line-report-502.html It's not often you would say a team is likely better off with someone making $17 million a year being lost for the season, but I'm guessing the Boston Red Sox aren't all that upset that fat man and distraction Pablo Sandoval will need season-ending shoulder surgery. What an utter bust he has been, and Boston doesn't have insurance on the five-year, $95 million free-agent deal it gave Sandoval in November 2014. http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-betting-wednesday-may-4-opening-line-report-502.html 2016 Kentucky Derby Handicapping Advice: How Pedigree Factors into Successful Wagers http://www.docsports.com/2016/kentucky-derby-handicapping-advice-how-pedigree-factors-into-successful-wagers-560.html Studying pedigrees is an art and science that takes a lifetime to understand. At the heart, though, handicappers study pedigrees for one reason - to try to understand if a horse is capable of doing something it hasn't done before. That's especially important in a race like the Kentucky Derby when every horse is being asked to run further than they ever have - and further than most horses are capable of doing effectively. By looking at the bloodlines of runners we can get a sense of which horses are well-suited, and which ones could be over their heads. http://www.docsports.com/2016/kentucky-derby-handicapping-advice-how-pedigree-factors-into-successful-wagers-560.html Doc's Sports Handicapping - Weekly Newsletter May 3-May 10 http://www.docsports.com/newsletter/2016/may-3-may-10-free-mlb-boxing-picks-odds-handicapping-170.html Doc's Sports newsletter this week has plenty of free picks from our Advisory Board of expert handicappers, and this week the free picks revolve around MLB action.

The jockeys can make or break the race. A good ride can turn a contender into a winner, and a bad ride has doomed many great horses in this event. In a race as wide open as the 2016 edition of the Kentucky Derby is, it's more than likely that after the race we will be talking about a rider and the difference they made in the end. It is, as always, a compelling group of riders assembled this year. Here's a snapshot of 11 of the more interesting stories: http://www.docsports.com/2016/expert-kentucky-derby-betting-advice-handicapping-jockeys-265.html PGA Tour Picks: Wells Fargo Championship Odds and Expert Betting Predictions http://www.docsports.com/2016/pga-tour-picks-wells-fargo-championship-odds-expert-betting-predictions-983.html Last week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans was a mess weather-wise, forcing not just a Monday finish but also the tournament was shortened to 54 holes (first event shortened since the 2013 opener in Hawaii). And Brian Stuard got his first PGA Tour win by beating Jamie Lovemark on the second playoff hole. Amazingly, Stuard never bogeyed a single hole in the tournament. In addition to making all 40 of his putts inside 10 feet, Stuard led the field at 2.849 in strokes gained/putting. http://www.docsports.com/2016/pga-tour-picks-wells-fargo-championship-odds-expert-betting-predictions-983.html
