Preakness 2012 Odds: Bodemeister An Early 2-1 Favorite

Bodemeister enters the 2012 Preakness Stakes as the prohibitive favorite with 2-1 odds, according to Watchmaker Odds posted at the Daily Racing Form. The Kentucky Derby runner-up will be out to spoil winner I'll Have Another's shot at taking the second leg of the Triple Crown. I'll Have Another stands at 5-2 odds.
