Odds and Predictions for 2019 Belmont Stakes
The 151st running of the Belmont Stakes takes place on Saturday. The race does not have the same buzz since there will be no Triple Crown winner but does set up the opportunity for War of Will to win two out of the three legs of the Triple Crown.
Wood Memorial winner Tacitus is the favorite at 9-5 at the moment, War of Will the Preakness Stakes winner is directly behind him at 2-1. The current odds at the moment are below.
War of Will 2-1
Master Fencer 8-1
Intrepid Heart 10-1
Bourbon War 12-1
Sir Winston 12-1
My pick for the race is neither favorite. I am going with Spinoff at 15-1 trained by Todd Pletcher. Pletcher has previously won the Belmont Stakes three times with filly Rags to Riches in 2007, Palace Malice in 2013 and Tapwrit in 2017.
My pick for Exacta: Spinoff (first), Tacitus (second)
My pick for Trifecta: Spinoff (first), Tacitus (second), Intrepid Heart (third)
My pick for Superfecta: Spinoff (first), Tacitus (second), Intrepid Heart (third), Master Fencer (fourth).
Post time for the mile and a half race is at 6:48 p.m. ET from Belmont Park in New York.
