Betting The 2020 Preakness Stakes: 5 Bankable Tips To Win Big

Betting on the Preakness!
Publish Date: 08/25/2020
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

Picking up the last chunk of this year’s road to the U.S. Triple Crown race is the Preakness Stakes. It usually serves as the middle jewel, but due to the significant schedule changes brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, it will conclude the event instead. The Preakness Stakes will settle at Pimlico Park on October 3, 2020.

Β 

Because this is the last part, many fans and bettors are anticipating a Triple Crown winner today. Remember that no winner was hailed last year due to the Kentucky Derby ending a controversial scene by disqualifying the winner. It leads to some horses no longer continuing their quest for the said title.

Β 

Thus, as the Preakness Stakes closes America’s most prestigious horse racing competition, the betting games will surely come massive. In a few weeks, the Derby will commence, and we’ll see some Preakness hopefuls saddling up. While we wait to compose the final list of the Run For The Black-Eyed Susans, here’s some bankable tips on how to bet the Preakness Stakes.

Review The Belmont Stakes Finishers

This year, the Belmont Stakes has opened the Triple Crown show, which took place last June 6, 2020. Among the three races, the Belmont Stakes has the longest racecourse, and it tests the horses’ real stamina. While the Preakness Stakes has the shortest running-distance, you can review the top Belmont finishers to find the right bets.

Β 

This year’s Belmont winner is Tiz The Law. He is then followed by Dr Post, Tap It To Win, Max Player, and Pneumatic. Other horses who made it to the top ten are Sole Volante, Farmington Road, Modernist, Jungle Runner, and Fore Left. Most of these horses are a sure entry to the Preakness Stakes, so ensure that you get updated with their racing forms.

Assess Kentucky Derby Winners

In a few more days, the Kentucky Derby will settle, highlighting twenty racehorses in the dirt track.Β  It is the largest and most notable racing competition among the Triple Crown races when it comes to purse prize and festivity. Your future Preakness bets might also come successful if you look at every Kentucky Derby winner.

Β 

As mentioned, Tiz The Law was the Belmont Stakes winner and is looking to clinch the Derby crown this September. If he makes it, he’s a sure candidate for the Preakness and the Triple Crown. Besides, he has the most impressive odd value today because of an undefeated racing form.

Evalue Pre-Triple Crown Season Big Accomplishers

Aside from the Belmont Stakes and the Kentucky Derby, there are other significant races that every Triple Crown hopeful has gone through. These races have the same nature when it comes to horse pedigree, age, classification, and track type. If a horse has been successful in the pre-Triple Crown season, he might break a record of winning the Preakness Stakes instead.

Β 

Not only that, but Derby-prep races and trail events have also settled since the first quarter of this year until this month. It allows every racehorse to earn the needed Derby points and boost their experience. If some of the Preakness Stakes entries were huge accomplishments from these trails, you might also consider betting them.

Big Favorites Can Win All The Way

In today’s odds ranking for the Preakness Stakes, you will see favorites and underrated horses. Favorite odds are mostly composed of horses impressing the horse racing community by winning significant tournaments. That said, these favorites also tend to win the Preakness Stakes.

Β 

Once the Kentucky Derby will conclude, many horse racing platforms will generate odds and lines that focus most on the big winners. Make sure that you get updated with the huge favorite’s odds value until the Preakness Stakes begin to keep track of how well they can win the racing and betting games.

Bet For A Trusted Online Sportsbook

It might be a common guide, but some bettors miss to consider this most of the time. The Preakness Stakes and the Triple Crown races have a dedicated betting site that you can register. They do not only offer impressive Preakness Stakes lines, but they offer promotions that will help you boost your earnings.

Β 

If you have your dedicated sportsbook, then you can continue using it. For newbie bettors who will gamble the Preakness Stakes for the first time, make sure to comprehend the terms before you sign up. Get acquainted with the deposit and withdrawals process and ensure they have various options to avoid getting lured.

Takeaway

The Preakness Stakes may have the shortest racecourse and takes the last leg the Triple Crown, but it holds the most important position of the said racing tournament. It will tell whether there will be a Triple Crown winner this year or not. Therefore, as you’ll wait for this event to settle and anticipate the betting games, taking advantage of the gambling tips above may boost your earnings.
