According to the current betting odds on the Kentucky Derby, there are three entries that are clear favorites to win the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby.

A 50/1 longshot, Borel and trainer David Cotey took the victory and paid bettors $103.20.

So with that said, betting value on horses with not so favorite odds can pay of big. In the 2013 Kentucky Derby there are five Derby entries with 15/1 odds at the time of this article and paying attention to how and if their odds move can be profitable.
