The Kentucky Derby and sports betting go hand in hand.
Things in the sports betting realm continue to roar back to life. This time the Kentucky Derby is at the forefront of life, resuming back to normal. The 146th Kentucky Derby, which was initially set to take place on May 2nd this year, will now commence on Saturday, September 5.
The big news for this one, Tiz the Law is seeking a Triple Crown for the first time since Justify did it back in 2018. Tiz the Law, owned by the Sackatoga Stable and trained by Barclay Tagg, has already won the 1st leg of the Triple Crown at the Belmont Stakes by 3 3/4 -lengths according to NBC Sports.
Right now, here is a current look at the odds curtsey of CBS Sports.

Jody Demling of Cardinal Authority has picked the 6 of his last 7 winners for horse racing. Let’s just say his word is about as good as it gets on the authority of finishing positions at the Kentucky Derby. He had some interesting things to note about the upcoming favorites.
He’s fading away from Authentic despite coming from the racing pedigree of Bob Baffert, and as inversely as surprising, he’s high on the 20-1 Ny Traffic horse as well.
Demling still considers Tiz the Law the “class of the field” and is very high on the New York bread horse.
This year is different, having the Belmont Stakes kick off the start of the Triple Crown, instead of the Derby. The last leg of the crown will now be the Preakness Stakes on Oct 3 and could be the decider for a Triple Crown should Tiz the Law win Saturday. The main race at the Kentucky Derby will take place around 5 pm MT.
