Trifecta Betting Strategy for the 138th Preakness Stakes at Pimlico

Exotic wagering for the Second Jewel of the Triple Crown

With a heavy favorite in the field, bettors will be looking to maximize the value of their wagers by playing a trifecta – mixing Orb in with some longshots to try and cash in on the first, second and third place finishers. While Orb won the Derby as the 5-1 favorite, the second-place finish of 35-1 Golden Soul followed by 6-1 Revolutionary in third produced a $2 trifecta payout of $6,925.60! Although it’s a challenge to pick the top three finishers, boxing gives bettors the opportunity to mix-and-match horses. Orb is our lead runner today.

Preakness Stakes Online Betting Lines & OSB Race Day Trifecta Predictions

If you believe – as we do – that Orb will win the race, the task is made easier by putting Orb on top, and then wheeling him with a few of the other contenders. We’re going to put down a $2 trifecta with Orb, followed by Departing, Mylute, and Will Take Charge boxed together, for a $12 bet. Looking for an upset cash, we’ll wager a second $2 box with Will Take Charge on top, with Orb, Mylute and Departing boxed together underneath. Whether you bet online at Bovada, or live at your local OTB, Good Luck and Enjoy The Preakness Stakes!
