Ways to bet Superfectas

You can bet superfectas 3 ways. The most common is the straight superfecta. This bet is notoriously hard to win. Boxes and wheels allow more flexibility in exchange for higher upfront cost. You can add more than 4 horses to your superfecta boxes and wheels. This increases the likelihood of winning.

The following video explains how to place a wheel bet. The procedure is the same for exactas and trifectas. Watch the entire video for help with other bets!

  1. Straight Superfecta Bet – Pick 3 horses to finish in the top 3 positions. Final order matters.
  2. Superfecta Box Bet – Pick any number of horses to finish in the top 3 positions. Final order does not matter.
  3. Superfecta Part Wheel Bet – Select horses to key into each position: first, second and third. Final order does matter depending on how you key each horse.

Efficiency Matters

Superfecta Boxes are more likely to win because final order does not matter. A box is less efficient than a wheel because you end up buying more combinations than you need.

Superfecta Part Wheels are harder to win because you must select and key horses correctly. Part Wheels are more efficient than boxes. You will invest less bankroll to potentially win more money.

2019 Preakness Superfecta Picks & Advice

I recommend a 7 horse Superfecta Part Wheel, keying 2 horses in the first position, 3 horses in the second position, 3 horses in the third position and 3 in the fourth. Let’s learn why these Preakness Superfecta picks are best put in a part wheel.

Suppose We Box our 7 Horses?

A 7 horse Superfecta box costs $840!

That’s a big risk compared to our $26 part wheel. Boxes are more flexible: order doesn’t matter, any of the 7 must finish in the top 4. But if it fails, you’re out rent money.

The $26 7 horse part wheel is much more manageable. It’s not as risky as the sloppier box cousin.

Preakness 2019 Superfecta Betting Advice

I recommend a 7 horse Superfecta Part Wheel, keying 2 horses in the first position, then 3 varying horses in the second, third and fourth positions. Here’s why:

A 4 horse Superfecta Part Wheel using my recommendation is only $26, $1 per combination. With only 13 or so horses scheduled to run, it’s a cheap date at Pimlico this weekend.

Put Improbable and War of Will in the first key. Then enter other likely top finishers in the remaining three keys. Why pay for extra horses in the first key if you don’t think they can win?

Invest your Superfecta money wisely or go broke.

Now you’ll have 26 possible winning combinations versus the novice who bets everything on one horse. Best of all, the return-on-investment will be much higher!

Preakness Superfecta Picks Keys

Let’s assemble our Superfecta Part Wheel keys from the table above.

Key 1

As of writing, Bob Baffert’s Improbable is the favorite. He’s currently +225. That means you win $225 if you bet $100 straight up. Drop him into the 1st key.

Now let’s pick another horse for the first key.

War of Will finished 7th at the Derby. He also started the race 7th likely to win at +1400 odds. Previously, War of Will was 7th at the G2 Louisiana Derby. His last victories were the G2 Risen Star Stakes on February 16, 2019 and G3 Lecomte on January 19, 2019.

Key 2

Add both Improbable and War of Will to the 2nd key. Next, we’ll add a third horse to our 2nd key.

2019 Preakness Superfecta Picks - Bourbon War

Bourbon War’s last big race was the G1 Florida Derby on March 30, 2019, where he finished 4th to winner Maximum Security. Previously, Bourbon War was second at the G2 Fountain of Youth stakes on March 2, 2019. His last win was an Allowance at Gulfstream Park on January 18, 2019.

Key 3

We’ll reuse Bourbon War in the 3rd key. The other 2 horses in the 3rd key will be Alwaysmining and Owendale.

Alwaysmining is owned by Runnymede Racing, LLC and trained by Kelly Rubley. Alwaysmining skipped the Kentucky Derby despite an impressive list of recent victories at Laurel Park. He’s won the Federico Tesio, Private Terms and Miracle Wood in 2019, plus the Heft and Maryland Juvenile Futurity in late 2018. Can he continue his winning ways at Pimlico? This horse would also make an ideal Win-Place-Show bet.

Owendale is trained by Brad H. Cox, owned by Rupp Racing. His last win came at Keeneland during the G3 Lexington Stakes. He was 8th at the G2 Risen Star stakes, well behind winner War of Will.

Key 4

Finally, we come to the 4th and final key. Let’s reuse Owendale. Then add Anothertwistafate and Bodexpress.

Anothertwistafate recently finished 2nd at the Lexington Stakes.

Meanwhile, Bodexpress finished 13th at the Kentucky Derby and 2nd at this year’s Florida Derby.
