2016 Kentucky Derby Odds

Of all the information necessary to bet on the Kentucky Derby none are more important than the betting odds. The name of the game in horse racing is valuation - at the right price the longest shot becomes a 'positive EV' selection and at the wrong price even the strongest favorite becomes unbettable.  Not knowing or understanding betting odds is like going shopping without understanding how products are priced. Parimutuel odds change all the time up until the start of the race and unlike sports betting they're not 'locked in' when you purchase your ticket - the official payout information isn't known until after the race is run.
