2018 Breeders’ Cup Classic odds and predictions: Expert who called Gun Runner’s win unveils picks
Outside the Triple Crown, possibly no other event in American horse racing draws as much action and excitement as the Breeders’ Cup Classic, which unfolds Saturday in 5:44 p.m. ET at venerable Churchill Downs. Fourteen of the very best horses in the world are put to runplayers and players everywhere are creating their 2018 Breeders’ Cup Classic predictions and picks as post time approaches. After winning three straight races and five of six complete entering Saturday, Accelerate is the morning-line popular at 5-2 at the most current 2018 Breeders’ Cup Classic chances. But many long shots such as Pavel (20-1), who won the Stephen Foster Classic at Churchill Downs, have been at the area too. Whether you’re backing a popular or searching for a huge payout by banking on a long shot, be sure to find out exactly what SportsLine’s Jody Demling has to say about this season’s race.
A fixture at the horse racing world who has been writing about, talking about, and gambling on races for decades, Demling is coming off a big cash in last year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic. He properly chosen Gun Runner to win, while also nailing exacta and superfecta bets. Anyone who followed his own selections won large.
Demling carried that over that magic into 2018 — nailing the Pegasus World Cup, Arkansas Derby, Preakness Stakes, Belmont Stakes and Pennsylvania Derby, Amongst Others.
But with race day approaching, Demling has analyzed the field and released his 2018 Breeders’ Cup picks. He’s sharing them at SportsLine.
We can tell you Demling is fading Mind Your Biscuits, among the favorites in 6-1 Breeders’ Cup odds. In reality, Demling says that the Chad Summers-trained horse does not even crack the plank.
“The son of Posse used to be thought of as one of the better sprinters in the nation,” Demling informed SportsLine. “Now, he is among the best horses stage and is attracting lots of attention in the 2018 Breeders’ Cup. He was impressive in winning the Lukas Classic and loves Churchill Downs, but my question is whether he can manage the space against a number of the top horses in the entire world.”
There are plenty of red flags surrounding Mind Your Own Biscuits too. He hasn’t competed in a 1??1/4-mile race, the 2018 Breeders’ Cup Classic distance. He has run 1??1/8 miles in his last two starts and finished first and second, but the excess quarter-mile is often where high-profile races have been won or lost. Additionally, Mind Your Biscuits, who’ll run out of the No. 11 post, has just won two of the past eight starts, including a third place showing in last year’s Breeders’ Cup Sprint. There are much better values than the 6-1 premium you’ll want to pay to back him.
1 surprise: Pavel, currently recorded at 20-1 Breeders’ Cup chances, makes a strong run.
“The four-year-old son of Creative Cause was 10th in last year’s Classic, but includes four fourth-place endings, a second and a triumph in his races as then,” Demling told SportsLine. “The win was at the Stephen Foster at Churchill Downs. He likes the surface.”
Demling can be extremely high on a speedy long shot that seems to be peaking at just the ideal time. He’s including this horse in his exotics, so should you.
