Kentucky Derby odds 2013: Orb, Verrazano early favorites

Jamie Squire

A look at the up-to-date Derby odds, including where Rick Pitino's horse, Goldencents, stands.

Orb and Verrazano are currently the favorites to win the 139th installment of the Kentucky Derby this Saturday, according to Thursday's latest odds (via OddsShark).

Each with 4/1 odds, Orb, the winner of four straight races, and Verrazano sit atop the 20-horse draw. Verrazano will start from the No. 14 post on Saturday, with Orb two spots down at No. 16.

Goldencents, who will race out of the No. 8 spot, has the best odds after the top two at 11/2. This is the horse co-owned by Louisville men's basketball head coach Rick Pitino. That guy sure needs something good to go his way this year.

Going down the line, Revolutionary and Normandy Invasion have 9/1 odds out of the No. 3 and 5 posts, respectively, and Itsmyluckyday carries 12/1 odds running out of the No. 12 posting.

Looking for long shots? Black Onyx, Golden Soul, Giant Finish and Falling Sky all have 50/1 odds of winning the first leg of the Triple Crown. This one, though, could be wet. CCurrent forecasts for Saturday in Louisville project a 70 percent chance of rain, potentially heavy at times, which could certainly affect the proceedings at Churchill Downs.

Complete odds:

1. Black Onyx 50/1
2. Oxbow 33/1
3. Revolutionary 9/1
4. Golden Soul 50/1
5. Normandy Invasion 9/1
6. Mylute 16/1
7. Giant Finish 50/1
8. Goldencents 11/2
9. Overanalyze 14/1
10. Palace Malice 25/1
11. Lines of Battle 33/1
12. Itsmyluckyday 12/1
13. Falling Sky 50/1
14. Verrazano 4/1
15. Charming Kitten 25/1
16. Orb 4/1
17. Will Take Charge 20/1
18. Frac Daddy 40/1
19. Java's War 16/1
20. Vyjack 14/1

Post time for Saturday is set for 6:24 p.m. ET and can be seen on NBC.
