Kentucky Derby Odds: Rock Your World Bettors’ Favorite to Win

With the Kentucky Derby a week away, betting for the race has started to get hot. While oddsmakers see Essential Quality as the favorite, +225 or an implied 30.8% chance to win, bettors have a different idea.

Rock Your World is currently oddsmakers’ second favorite. The horse has been given +500 odds, or an implied 16.7% chance to win the race. Meanwhile, bettors’ are full behind Rock Your World. Over the last 7 days, 17.9% of bets have been placed on Rock Your World to win the Kentucky Derby. It’s main competition is Essential Quality, which has seen 16.1% of bets.

The two favorites in this race have some odd history. Neither has a jockey who has won any of triple crown races, a trainer that has had a horse win a triple crown race, comes from a breeder that has had a horse win a triple crown race, nor has their owners ever had a horse won a triple crown race.

If Essential Quality or Rock Your World wins it would be quite the story for these teams. Still, there’s no denying the success that both of these horses have had leading up to this race. In a competitive field, these two truly stand out among the rest.
