Super Sunday is the sports betting industry’s biggest day each year, but could a Super Saturday this week approach the same level of betting interest?

The Kentucky Derby goes Saturday afternoon with American Pharoah the top betting choice and the Run For the Roses is followed a few hours later by the Floyd Mayweather Manny Pacquiao fight.

Both are expected to be heavily wagered events and maybe it's more than fate that a horse named Itsaknockout will be running in the Derby.


Nats Seek a Payout as Gonzalez Hits Hill

The Washington Nationals have managed to pick up a victory in seven of Gio Gonzalez's last 10 starts against the New York Mets as those two division rivals continue their baseball betting series at Citi Field on Saturday night.

American Pharoah Gets Post Position 16

Animal Kingdom won the Kentucky Derby from post position No. 16 in 2011, and American Pharoah will get a chance to do the same on Saturday thanks to three horses being scratched from the field in the last couple of days.

American Pharoah drew the No. 18 post position on Wednesday, but the scratch of No. 11 Stanford from the field shifted him to post position No. 17 on Thursday afternoon. When International Star was scratched on Saturday morning American Pharoah then moved to post position No. 16.


2015 Kentucky Derby Morning Line Odds

American Pharoah opened as the morning line favorite of 5/2 for the 2015 Kentucky Derby after the draw on Wednesday and sits with the same line on those betting odds entering the final stretch of wagering for Saturday's race at Churchill Downs.

Editor's Note: A third horse, International Star, was scratched from the field for the Kentucky Derby on Saturday morning.


Derby: American Pharoah Betting Odds

There are at least three good reasons why American Pharoah is the favorite and the best pick to win the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday at Churchill Downs.

First of all, the three-year-old bay colt is trained by Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, who has previously won the Kentucky Derby three times, with the last victory taking place in 2002 with War Emblem. Baffert also won the Kentucky Derby with Silver Charm and Real Quiet in 1997 and 1998, respectively.


Kentucky Derby: Dortmund Betting Odds

Dortmund is one of two top contenders on the odds to win the 2015 Kentucky Derby trained by Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, but some horse racing handicappers and bettors may argue he has a better chance to win the 141st Run for the Roses at Churchill Downs than favorite American Pharoah based on their respective post positions.

Dortmund drew the No. 8 position, with horses in that spot winning eight times previously, the last coming in 2009 with Mine That Bird.
