Confidence Game Making Big Impression in Betting Odds

Confidence Game Making Big Impression: Confidence Game is giving experts in the 2023 Kentucky Derby odds something to think about with just a week to go before the prestigious race. In a trial workout held on Saturday at Churchill Downs, Confidence Game ran an impressive 59 seconds in five furlongs. This is the fastest ever recorded among 54 horses that are in the hunt for this year’s Derby. Due to this, the three-year-old improved his betting odds to 22-1 from 40-1. The 22-1 odds currently places him among the Top 10 contenders for the race, just seven days before the derby flags off. Other sites placed him between the 12-1 and 14-1 range which is high considering the deep field for the event.

Forte Remains Top Favorite

There is no change in the top favorite race for the 2023 Kentucky Derby as Forte continues to secure the nod of sports picks and parlays thanks to his impressive runs in the past. The Eclipse Award winner holds a 5-2 odds with just a week remaining in the race. His stablemate Tapit Trice is second at 6-1, as Derma Sotogake, Practical Move, Verifying, Angel of Empire, Kingsbarns and Confidence Game close behind. Mage, Skinner and Two Phil’s are on the mid-20-1 odds range and are far apart from the next group of horses that have lesser chances of winning the prestigious race. A word of caution though for bettors who like to place their money on the favorite: Rich Strike came from zero to hero in last year’s edition of the Kentucky Derby. The son of Keen Ice was an 80-1 longshot but he and his jockey, Sonny Leon, masterfully ran the 1 1/4-mile (2.012-kilometer) race to defeat Epicenter and Zandon and won the first of the US Triple Crown events in 2022.
