Belmont Stakes 2013 odds: Orb favored heading into weekend


The lines have shifted a little, but Orb remains the odds-on pick to win at Belmont Park.

As of Friday morning's freshest betting lines, Orb is still the odds-on favorite for Saturday's Belmont Stakes, the third leg of the Triple Crown.

Bovada's updated odds have Orb, the Kentucky Derby winner, as an 11/4 favorite, moving from the 3/1 line posted on Thursday. Revolutionary remains one of the 14-horse field's strongest challengers with 5/1 odds, while Oxbow, the winner at the Preakness Stakes a few weeks ago, sits at 6/1.

Others near the top include Freedom Child at 17/2 and Unlimited Budget at 10/1.

The race's three biggest underdogs -- Midnight Taboo, Giant Finish and Frac Daddy -- remain lumped together at the back, but with new odds of 33/1 apiece, shifting from 30/1 each.

Televised coverage of the Belmont Stakes begins at 5 p.m. ET Saturday on NBC.
