2013 Kentucky Derby Head to Head Matchups
Horse racing operates under a pari-mutuel wagering system where bettors are effectively betting against each other and not the track or bookmaker. The amount of money bet on horses through this system effects and determines their odds. Betting at the track certainly has its advantages, but wagering with an online bookmaker is even better.
Nearly every online bookmaker offers some sort of refund on wagers, and they also have special wager types you wont and can't find at the track. One of my favorite types of wagers they offer is the head to head matchup. To win this wager you must determine who will finish ahead of the other, Horse A or Horse B. There will be plenty of money to make on the Kentucky Derby with this wager type.
Sharp Bettors routinely take advantage of head to head matchups and not just when wagering on the Kentucky Derby. Sportsbooks offer head to head matchups for every sport including golf and NASCAR. Below we will list a few of the head to head matchup odds currently listed at Sportsbook.ag. Another sportsbook with plenty of Kentucky Derby bet offers is 5 Dimes.
