The Kentucky Derby morning line is posted. American Pharoah is the slight 3/1 favorite to take home the first leg of Thoroughbred’s Triple Crown, the Run for the Roses. Dortmund is just a neck behind at 4/1, followed by Carpe Diem at 8/1.
It gets quite bunched up at that point with Firing Line, Frosted, Materiality, and Mubtaahij all at 14/1. There is another deep drop-off with International Star at 24/1, trailed by Ocho Ocho Ocho and Upstart each at 25/1.
Just as bettors are collecting their long shot winners from Grandmaster Sports Handicapper Joe Duffy of OffshoreInsiders.com the loser-goes-home Game 7 of the first round of the Western Conference NBA playoffs has the Los Angeles Clippers mild 2.5 home favorites to the San Antonio Spurs with a total of 204.
The betting public generally prefers betting the favorite. While the Spurs-Clippers is no exception, the 57 percent on the home team is lukewarm. However there is a clear consensus on the total with 72 percent staking on the over.
The night is capped with the much-anticipated Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao clash. Mayweather is a prohibitive 200 favorite with Pacman getting back 170.
