Authentic Leads The Pack For Preakness Stakes 2020 Odds

  • To no one’s surprise, Authentic is favored at +150 odds to win the 2020 Preakness Stakes.
  • Authentic topped Tiz the Law to win last month’s Kentucky Derby.
  • Art Collector, listed at +250 odds, has the pedigree to pull of the upset.

BALTIMORE, Md. – The final race in a rescheduled 2020 Triple Crown has finally arrived in the form of the 2020 Preakness Stakes. Although there won’t be a Triple Crown winner in back to back years, the Preakness Stakes is still full of interesting storylines and horse racing betting opportunities.

To no one’s surprise, Authentic is listed as the favorite to win the 2020 Preakness Stakes at +150 odds.

Authentic won the Kentucky Derby last month, edging out the then favorite and Belmont Stakes winner, Tiz The Law.

A rematch in the Preakness Stakes came off the table last week when Jack Knowlton, managing partner of Sackatoga Stable, announced that Tiz the Law won’t be participating in the Preakness and instead focus on the Breeders Cup.

But those looking to bet on the Preakness Stakes can still put action on other horses to give Authentic a run for its money.

Art Collector wasn’t able to participate in the Kentucky Derby due to a heel injury but seems to have fully recovered. The stallion will be starting from the No. 3 position which gives him the advantage of possibly pulling an inside rail position early.

Mr. Big News at +1800 odds could also prove to be a worthy wager for an upset. Mr. Big News finished in third place in the Kentucky Derby. However, what’s more noteworthy is that he was able to hit his all-time fastest speed figure.

Excession comes in at the 1 position but is at the bottom of the odds board at +4000 odds. Those looking for a long-shot bet might want to fade this one and instead look to a horse like Liveyourbestlife at +3300 odds.

While Liveyourbestlife doesn’t have any major victories on his record, he did finish second in the Jim Dandy Stakes last month and this could be his breakthrough moment.

Online sportsbooks in the USA will be taking in bets until the event starts at 5:45 p.m. EST. The event will be held at Pimlico Race Course and will air on NBC.
