LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Betting on the Kentucky Derby has just gotten a little more interesting with Circa Sports pushing two-way betting with its futures odds.
Two-way betting on the Kentucky Derby is when you either wager on a particular horse to win or you bet on the field. There is a higher risk/reward when you take action on a specific horse while the field is safer but the returns are less.
The Golden Gates Casino backed sportsbook has also expanded its betting limit for futures betting from $200 to $1,000 if you are two-way betting.
Two-Way Betting At Circa Sports
This is the first time legal horse race bettors can partake in two-way betting at Circa Sports.
“If they bet into the normal pool, they’re leaving money on the table, where they get the same odds on the yes as on the yes/no,” said Paul Zilm, Circa Sports’ risk supervisor. “And what that does is that gives us flexibility to manage it. But it also gives the bettor flexibility if they want to take a stand against a horse that’s getting over-bet, that they don’t like, then they can lay the ‘No.’”
Currently, the horse with the shortest odds to win is Tiz The Law is favored to win, with +225 odds.
The racehorse has gained a lot of respect as the Kentucky Derby favorite this year.
