2014 Kentucky Derby: Updated Odds; Oaks/Derby Double Will Pays

New, 13 comments

The will pays for the Oaks/Derby Double, along with the current odds for the 2014 Kentucky Derby after early advance wagering.

A $1 Oaks/Derby Double of Untapable and California Chrome will return a whopping $5.70. Don't spend it all in one place.

With only $165,000 in the win pool at Churchill Downs, it's way too early to get any realistic sense as to what this year's Derby odds will look like at post time on the First Saturday in May. The final will contain millions of dollars, rendering this early influx of cash particularly meaningless. But, hey, it's Derby Friday, why not take a look to kill some time!

Early wagering went, primarily, to the the longest shots on the board, which seems to be a trend in the post-Mine That Bird Derby era. For some reason, there's a good portion of the general public just itching to bet anything in the 50/1 range; Harry's Holiday, We Miss Artie, and Commanding Curve all saw their odds cut from 50/1 to anywhere from 22/1 to 25/1. I suppose someone really needed to get down some money on those three this afternoon but... yeah, I can come up with any reasons either.

As for a far more interesting wagering pool, the Oaks/Derby will pays are up following Untapable's easy win in Friday's Oaks. The victory by the heavy favorite generated fairly tepid will pays across the board; the Oaks/Derby Double to California Chrome pays a paltry $5.70 for a $1 wager. Wicked Strong is the second choice in the Double with a will pay of $19.80. The largest will pay on the board is the $199.90 for a Untapable/Harry's Holiday combination.
