2012 Belmont Stakes: I'll Have Another Is The Big Favorite

With Saturday's Triple Crown only two days away, the betting picture for the 2012 Belmont Stakes is starting to take shape after the field drew post positions earlier in the week:

1-Street Life, 12/1

2-Unstoppable U, 30/1

3-Union Rags, 6/1

4-Atigun, 30/1

5-Dullahan, 5/1

6-Ravelo's Boy, 50/1

7-Five Sixteen, 50/1

8-Guyana Star Dweej, 50/1

9-Paynter, 8/1

10-Optimizer, 20/1

11-I'll Have Another, 4/5

12-My Adonis, 20/1

As many expected, the two challengers getting the most love from bettors are Dullahan and Union Rags, although Paynter's odds have improved as the week has gone on.
