Belmont Stakes 2020: Odds and Predictions

Odds are open on 13 horses competing in the 152nd running of the Belmont Stakes, on June 20.

Although the race will run without fans, the Belmont Stakes is set to go on June 20 and betting odds are open. The race features 13 horses vying for a chance and glory. The race is typically the third leg of the Triple Crown, but due to the Corona Virus, this year it kicks things off. It is time to get excited!

Odds on the Belmont Stakes

Belmont Stakes odds are open on the 152nd running of the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park this Saturday. The race is scheduled to run at 5:42 PM EST and has been shortened from 1 1/2 to 1 1/18 miles. Our pick to win the race and the best underdog to pull off the upset is below. 

Tiz The Law - The Favourite in 2020

With horse racing schedules thrown off, there is less to go on than typically at this point of the season. That is partly the reason why Tiz The Law is such a strong favourite going into the race. Tiz The Law knows the track at Belmont Park, having won there in 2019 (the Champagne Stakes). 

Tiz The Law has also has won his only two races in 2020 - Grade III Holy Bull and the Grade I Florida Derby. The fact the race has been shortened also bodes well for Tiz the Law - whose last win was a runaway at the 1 1/8 mile Florida Derby.  

Bettors should feel pretty damn confident that Tiz The Law will add his fifth career by capturing the 152nd Belmonts Stakes.

Pick: Tiz The Law (-130) to Win the 2020 Belmont Stakes

The Underdog that Could Steal the Show.

Pretty much every horse outside of Tiz The Law is an underdog and offering some great odds to win. Of the 12 remaining horses scheduled to run in the 2020 Belmont Stakes, we are circling Dr Post as the best underdog to bet will pull off the upset. 

Dr Post has picked up two wins in three career races, including a feisty showing at the 1 1/8 mile Unbridled Stakes in April. 

It should also be noted the jockey riding Dr Post. Irad Ortiz Jr. will ride Dr Post, teaming him up with the horse's trainer Todd A. Pletcher. Irad brother's teamed up with Pletcher, riding Tapwrit to a win at the 2017 Belmont Stakes.

The familial connection mixed with Dr Post's recent success and the relatively weak field opens the door for Dr Post to put off the upset. The horse is definitely worth taking on an each way bet to finish in the top three.

Pick: Dr Post (+800) to Win/ (+160) to finish top three
