There are plenty of hours left until today's Preakness (Post Time: 6:20 pm Eastern; TV: NBC), but the early wagering at Pimlico and OTB/ADW locations saw Orb's odds cut from a morning line of even money to a price of 3/5. About the only surprise in the early wagering is Departing drifting from his morning line of 6/1 to 13/1. I would expect those odds to get severely reduced over the next ten hours.
Mylute remains the second choice on the morning line, holding at odds of 6/1 through the early betting. Goldencents (8/1) and Itsmyluckyday (9/1) are the other two horse with odds of less than 10/1 as the day begins at Pimlico.
