With the Kentucky Derby just right around the corner, it is only right that there are Kentucky Derby prop bets that come along with it as well.

One prop bet is the number of words that will be in the winning horse's name.

  • 3 Words -190
  • 2 Words +140
  • 1 Word +600

Being that Tiz The Law is the heavy favorite to win the Kentucky Derby, it backs up the odds of the winner having three words in their name.

Although history will not be on the side of it being three words as three of the past five winners have been two words, it is still the safest bet to make considering Tiz The Law’s odds.

Another prop bet regarding the name of the winning horse is what the first letter of the horse that finishes first will be.

Winning Horse Name 1st Letter

  • N-Z -200
  • A-M +150

This is another prop bet that goes hand in hand with Tiz The Law’s heavily favored odds. As long as Tiz The Law can back up his favored odds, bettors can walk away happy with this one.

There is also an easy money prop bet for bettors to take full advantage of. It is whether or not everyone at the winning podium will be wearing a mask or not.

Will Everyone On The Podium Be Wearing A Mask?

  • Yes -250
  • No +170

The main reason that the Kentucky Derby was postponed was because of the coronavirus so it would only make sense that everyone is wearing a mask and following social distancing guidelines when at the podium.
