Decoding the Kentucky Derby Odds

If you're new to this, Kentucky Derby odds might seem a bit daunting. But worry not! It's simpler than it looks. Odds tell you how likely a horse is to win. A favorite might have odds like 5-2, meaning if you bet $2, you'll get $5 if it wins. An underdog might be at 20-1, promising a bigger payout if it surprisingly wins. These numbers are influenced by a variety of factors like past performance, training regime, track conditions, and even the weather on race day.
