2013 Breeders Cup Odds

One of the most important pieces of information that you need if you're going to be placing bets on the Breeders' Cup in 2013 (or any year) is the odds of the various horses. Information about the jockeys, the horses, the trainers and more is taken and calculated to come up with the odds of each horse winning. We're going to go over the basics of the odds used for the Breeders' Cup series of horse races on this page. Additionally, we have some advice on how to use this information to your advantage.

Understanding Breeders' Cup Odds

The higher the odds, the less chance a horse has of winning the race but the higher the payout if they do happen to come from behind and surprise everyone. This is part of what makes horse racing so exciting. On the other end of the spectrum, if the odds are low the horse has a greater chance of winning and the payoff will not be as big. Of course, some people like to be safer when they bet on horse racing - as long as they come out ahead at the end of the day. How you place your bets is up to you, but the more you know about how odds work the smarter you're going to be when you put your money down.

Using Odds to Place Bets on Breeders' Cup

As you may or may not know, the Breeders Cup odds for the horses are not locked in. In fact, they may change frequently for some horses. Because of this, you really want to make sure you pay attention to when you place your bet and what the odds are when you put your money down. This is one reason a lot of seasoned horse racing veterans wait until the last possible moment before placing their bets. Having even a little extra information can make all the difference sometimes.
