2023 Kentucky Derby Predictions Odds: Top Expert Picks for Win, Place, Show, Exacta, Trifecta, Superfecta

Larry Rivelli and Jareth Loveberry know each other well from their days at the now-closed Arlington International Raceway in suburban Chicago, but the two old colleagues will get the chance of a lifetime together at the 2023 Kentucky Derby .Both will make their debuts in the 149th Run for the Roses at Churchill Downs, with Rivelli serving as trainer and Loveberry on Two Phil’s mount. The son of Mia Torri’s Hard Spun will break away from the #3 post, where Loveberry will have to work through traffic to get him into his preferred stalking position. The Jeff Ruby Steaks winner previously had a graded stakes win at Churchill Downs on Street Sense and is 12-1 in the 2023 Kentucky Derby odds.

Meanwhile, trainer Todd Pletcher and rider Irad Ortiz Jr. both have plenty of Kentucky Derby experience and will join Forte, the 3-1 favorite with six wins in seven career starts, including five graded stakes wins. With so many considerations that go into making your Kentucky Derby 2023 picks, a little expert help can go a long way.

Jockey John Velazquez races in the 2023 Kentucky Derby and finishes with 6,500 career wins, including a trio of Triple Crown victories in the first leg. The Hall of Famer won with Animal Kingdom in 2011, Always Dreaming in 2017 and Authentic in 2020. Now he’s competing in his 25th career Kentucky Derby on Saturday with Reincarnate (50-1), traded by Bob’s Barn Baffert on Team Yakteen. The latter will also have a handy move (10-1) in the 2023 Kentucky Derby field with a far less experienced rider as Ramon Vazquez makes his second career start in the Run for the Roses.

Given all the history, there’s a method to picking horses to focus on for exacta, trifecta and superfecta bets in such a Kentucky Derby, and SportsLine expert Jody Demling knows what it is. It can help you reach the best possible Kentucky Derby picks for 2023.

Demling is a horse racing fixture who has been writing, speaking and betting on the races for years. Demling will enter the 2023 Kentucky Derby having staked the Belmont Stakes winner four of the past five years, including an exacta in 2022 with Mo Donegal and Nest. He also secured Flightline’s victory in the Breeders’ Cup Classic last November.

Demling is at his best in the world’s biggest horse races like the 2023 Kentucky Derby. In fact, he has hit 10 of the last 14 Derby Oaks doubles at Churchill Downs. That means he has been on a ticket with the winners of both races in all but four of the last 14 years.

He’s also named nine of the last 18 Preakness winners and knew exactly when the Kentucky Derby winner was poised for victory or a massive upset, nailing the 2022 Preakness trifecta. Anyone who’s followed him in those racing trucks with horse is great. Now he’s sharing all of his 2023 Kentucky Derby bets here.

The experts’ top picks for the 2023 Kentucky Derby

Here’s a refresher on that type of betting from SportsLine’s Jody Demling:

Kentucky Derby Exacta: pick the first and second place winners in the correct order. A $2 Exacta earned $4,101.20 in the 2022 Kentucky Derby with Rich Strike and Epicenter.

Kentucky Derby Trifecta: Pick the first, second and third place winners in the correct order. A $1 trifecta earned $14,870.70 in the 2022 Kentucky Derby with Rich Strike, Epicenter and Zandon.

Kentucky Derby Superfecta: Choose first, second, third and fourth place in a row. A $1 Superfecta earned a whopping $321,500.10 in the 2022 Kentucky Derby with Rich Strike, Epicenter, Zandon and Simplification.

While Demling doesn’t mind Forte’s (3-1) favorite status, he plans to ticket Practical Move (10-1) and a massive double-digit underdog who could really boost the payouts. You can see his selection here.
