2012 Belmont Stakes Odds & Predictions

The 2012 Belmont Stakes will be raced on June 9th 2012 at 6:35PM ET. The Belmont Park in New York will be buzzing this year, as there is a legitimate Triple Crown contender racing. I’ll Have Another surprised more then a few people at the Kentucky Derby earlier this year, as the horse won as a 15/1 underdog. Fewer bettors were surprised by I’ll Have Another winning the Preakness, as the horse only paid out 4/1 in that race. Right now I’ll Have Another is the big favourite in the 2012 Belmont Stakes.

Will I’ll Have Another Win the Triple Crown in 2012?

I’ll Have Another was one of my picks in the Kentucky Derby to win, but I thought that the shorter track in the Preakness Stakes was going to cause some problems for the derby winner. If you watched the Derby you’d have seen that I’ll Have Another was able to kick it into another gear on the finishing stretch to take the lead at the very end. I thought I’ll Have Another would run out of space in the Preakness Stakes and therefore I wasn’t too keen on the horse.

After watching I’ll Have Another close in the Preakness Stakes I’m confident that this horse will be the 1st Triple Crown winner since Affirmed conquered the feat in 1978. Obviously in a horse race with a few talented horses like the Belmont Stakes anything could end happening, but I’ll Have Another is the best bet at +130. The odds have been dropping steadily since being released, so make sure you bet on this horse as soon as possible.

If you’re reading this on your mobile device you can bet on the 2012 Belmont Stakes at BetOnline Mobile. I’m going to bet 2 units on I’ll Have Another at the Belmont Stakes and I’m also going to bet on some exotics. Union Rags has been disappointing this year in the big stakes races, but the field isn’t that deep in the Belmont Stakes this year. Union Rags should be at the top of the pack and I expect Union Rags to place or show.

Dullahan and Paynter are the two other horses receiving attention at the betting window. Dullahan finished the Kentucky Derby in 3rd place this year already and I think Dullahan will do well. Paynter hasn’t raced in either Triple Crown race yet this year, but the horse will be entered into the Belmont Stakes. I don’t bet on horses in the Belmont Stakes that haven’t raced in at least one of the Triple Crown races beforehand, so Paynter is off my list.

The rest of the field is pretty poor and I can’t see a big upset at the Belmont Park track in a couple weeks. Alpha finished horribly in the Kentucky Derby and the rest of the field just doesn’t have the talent that the favourite horses do. My final picks for the 2012 Belmont Stakes are as followed.

Predictions for the 2012 Belmont Stakes

• Win – I’ll Have Another at +130
• Trifecta – I’ll Have Another / Dullahan / Union Rags
