2013 Belmont Stakes picks and predictions: Orb seen as heavy favorite

Al Bello

The final leg of the Triple Crown will be run on a soggy track in the heart of horse racing country.

The 2013 Belmont Stakes will be run on Saturday, finishing off the trio of Triple Crown races for the season.

Once again, there will be no Triple Crown winner, as Orb won the Kentucky Derby and Oxbow took the Preakness Stakes in Maryland. The last Triple Crown winner was Affirmed, who stole the show back in 1978.

However, interest is still quite high for the Belmont, and many have their picks (and money) on Orb to capture another race on the soggy track in New York.

Over at CBS New York, Revolutionary (9-2) is given a decent chance to pull off the upset over Orb (3-1). But Orb is still considered by CBS as a solid bet to take the race, along with Overanalyze.

Jack Jones of Betfirms.com has Orb taking first place but sees Palace Malice (15-1) coming in a close second, followed by Revolutionary.
