2011 Kentucky Derby Odds, Free Picks and Predictions – Favorites and Lines to Win 137th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs May 7th, 2011: Early Vegas Betting Odds to Win the 2011 Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville, KY on May 7th are now posted on NSAwins.com and the vegas oddsmakers have made Dialed In the 7/2(+350) early vegas favorite to win the 137th running of “The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports”. Dialed In has become a popular pick in recent weeks to win the Kentucky Derby after his impressive win in the Florida Derby on April 3rd. The 3 year-old colt is trained by Nick Zito and is owned by Robert V. Palenta. Dialed In’s top competition for the #1 favorite position heading into the 137th Kentucky Derby is 2 year-old champion Uncle Mo. Early on vegas oddsmakers made Uncle Mo 4/1(+400 odds) the early favorite to win the 137th running of “The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports” but have dropped him behind Dialed In as of today due to health concerns and a recent dissappointing finish in his last race. Uncle Mo is the champion 2-year-old of 2010 and is owned by Mike Repole from New York. Uncle Mo was undefeated in his racing career before finishing a dissappointing 3rd in the Wood Memorial on April 9th. Making thing worse, Uncle Mo suffered from a GI tract infection following the race and has been working hard to get fit in time for a strong Kentucky Derby gallop. Uncle Mo is trained by Todd Pletcher, who decided to run Uncle Mo in only two races against weak competition this season before he steps on the dirt at Churchill Downs for the Run for the Roses. Despite the dissapointing Wood Memorial showing, Uncle Mo’s talent is undeniable despite not proving much running against soft competition thus far in his 3-year-old racing season, as even the usually reseved Pletcher commented that the colt might end up being in the same class as Seattle Slew and other all-time greats. “When you’re thinking about the greatest horses of all time,” Pletcher said, “he has the potential to be in that group.”
Other favorites to win the 2011 Kentucky Derby in the eyes of the vegas linemakers include Nehro 5/1 +500 odds(Trainer: Steven M. Asmussen, Owner: Zayat Stables, LLC), Archarcharch 8/1 +800 odds(Trainer: William. H Fires, Owner: Grapestock LLC), Mucho Macho Man 12/1 +1200 odds(Tariner: Katherine Ritvo, Owner: Dream Team One Racing Stable – Reeves Thoroughbred Racing), Soldat at 16/1 +1600 odds(Trainer: Kiaran P. McLaughlin, Owner: Clarke, Harvey A. and Robertson III, W. Craig). Other horses that NSAwins.com’s expert horse racing handicappers like and who could see their odds rise and be nice darkhorse contenders or sleepers to place bets on if they qualify for the 2011 Kentucky Derby include Master of Hounds at 20/1 +2000 odds(Trainer: Aidan P. O’Brien, Owner: Mrs. John Magnier) and Stay Thirsty at 25/1 +2500 odds(Trainer: Todd Pletcher, Owner: Repole Stable). One horse you should probably overlook and avoid placing a bet on is Brilliant Speed at 25/1 +2500 odds(Trainer: Thomas Albertrani, Owner: Live Oak Plantation).
