The 2018 Preakness Stakes is set to take place this weekend from the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore Maryland. This is a Grade I race that’s over 9.5 furlongs. This is also the second leg of the Triple Crown. After the Kentucky Derby, Justify is looking to win the second leg, before heading to the Belmont to complete it. This is the 143rd running of the Preakness. Let’s take a look at the best Preakness Stakes Betting odds to win the race.

2018 Preakness Stakes Betting Preview & Expert Prediction

Justify -200

You will have to bet $200 just to win $100 on Justify. It’s possibly worth that and more, as Justify is by far the best horse in this race. Justify has a field that is not as strong as the Kentucky Derby to maneuver against. This Bob Baffert horse is ready to make history. The Belmont will not be easy, but when we look back on the course, we will see that Justify running away with the Preakness was the easiest of the tasks.

Good Magic +450

Good Magic is a nice horse for running. There is no doubt that Good Magic is ready for this race. The problem is – Good Magic is the best bet to finish runner-up. Good Magic just does not seem to have the power to beat Justify in a big race like this. Trainer Chad Brown has done a great job with the horse, and things seem to be all functions go. If you are not a believer in Justify, Good Magic is probably your horse.

Diamond King +1600

There is a large gap between the top two in odds to win the Preakness and the rest of the horses. Diamond King is the best of the rest. Diamond King just does not seem to be ready to compete at the highest level, and that’s the Preakness. D-King is listed at +1600 to win the race. If this was a bet to show in the race, it would be a no-brainer. But, betting Diamond King to win the race is wasting your money.

Quip +2500

Quip is the horse that many are talking about for an upset. That would be a great story. Quip is listed at +2500, and only Sporting Chance, Tenfold and Lone Sailor are below this horse.

Quip looks like a good 2018 Preakness Stakes Betting pick.

Bravazo is matched at +2500. Quip has the tools to make a run. This is a very well trained horse that seems to be close. Close but no cigar could be the right answer for Quip at the 2018 Preakness.

There is a look at the best 2018 Preakness Stakes Betting odds. We hope you enjoyed our look at the 2018 Preakness Stakes. Best of luck with all your betting, whether it is on the Preakness or any other sport. Enjoy the race!
