Triple Crown Odds to Win – Result and Horses
How to bet Futures
Sportsbooks offer odds on distant events. Bet wins or loses after the event has concluded.
Identifying the Odds
American sportsbooks calculate odds as moneylines. Occasionally, some horse racing futures may be displayed as fractional odds.
- Odds values are to the right of each horse’s name.
- Positive numbers indicate how much you win for risking $100.
- Negative numbers indicate how much you risk to win $100.
Identifying the Favorite & Underdogs
A horse with a minus sign before its money line is the favorite. It is most likely to win the Triple Crown. A winning bet will return less than the stake amount.
All other horses will have positive signs before their money lines. That means they are underdogs and less likely to win. A field with all positive signs means there is no strong favorite. All winning bets will return more than the stake amount.
Triple Crown Futures Bet Example
Select one or more horses to win the Triple Crown.
1. Tiz the Law +3000
2. Authentic +3300
3. Nadal +4000

How to Bet on Horses
Watch our helpful video tutorial for more information. Afterward, read our “How to Bet on Horses” article for more information.
The most basic horse bets are the Win, Place and Show bets.
The Win bet is picking a horse to finish first. Payout depends on the horse’s odds before the race. Win bets on long-shot horses will pay more than heavy favorites.
The Place bet is picking a horse to finish second. The bet also pays if your horse finishes first. Place bets usually pay less than a successful win bet unless a long-shot horse finishes in the top two.
The Show bet is picking a horse to finish third. The bet also pays if your horse finishes first or second.
Win Place Show or “Across the Board”
Add a win, place and show bet on the same horse into one combination bet. Some horse bettors place Across the Board bets on multiple horses.
Race results determine your payout. The bet pays the most if your horse finishes first. You would collect on all 3 bets.
The bet pays the least if your horse finishes third. You would only collect on your show bet and lose your win and place bets.
