2014 Kentucky Derby lineup, odds, betting

What bettors need to know

Tampa Bay Downs in Oldsmar, Derby Lane in St. Petersburg and Tampa Greyhound Track open at 10 a.m. today to take Derby bets. Some tips before you go:

The basics: Post time for the Derby is 6:32 p.m. Don't be in line at 6:31 and risk being shut out.

The lingo: Identify your horse by its saddlecloth number. Because there has been two scratches, some saddlecloth numbers do not match the post position numbers. Tellers take bets by horse saddlecloth numbers, not names. If you want to bet $2 to win on, for example, Wicked Strong, say, "In Race 11 (the Derby) at Churchill Downs, give me $2 to win on 20."

The bets: The minimum bet is $2 with the most simple wagers being win, place and show. If you have a horse you really like, bet it to win. If you're not totally confident of a win but believe it will be in the hunt, bet it to place (first or second) or show (first, second or third).

Kentucky Derby field, odds

Hoppertunity, which drew the No. 11 post position and thus the 11 saddlecloth number on Wednesday, was scratched Thursday because of a sore left front foot. Pablo Del Monte, which replaced Hoppertunity, pulled out Friday. The No. 1 spot in the starting gate will be empty and the 19 horses will use posts 2 through 20.

  1. USF defense feeds on Temple offense to take NCAA interceptions lead


    TAMPA — Backed up in his end zone, Temple quarterback Logan Marchi scrambled, trying to elude a USF defensive end coming straight for him. Until then, Marchi hadn't had much luck hitting his receivers.

    South Florida Bulls safety Devin Abraham (20) sacks Temple Owls quarterback Logan Marchi (12) during the first half at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on Thursday, September 21, 2017.
  2. No. 21 USF Bulls roll over Temple to stay undefeated


    TAMPA — They emerged from Raymond James Stadium's southwest tunnel on the 11-month anniversary of their public humiliation at Temple.

    Bulls tailback Darius Tice, who rushes for 117 yards, is elated by his 47-yard run for a touchdown in the second quarter for a 10-0 lead.
  3. Fennelly: USF thrashes Temple to stay unbeaten; too bad not many saw it in person



    No. 21 USF ran its record to 4-0 Thursday night with some payback against Temple, a 43-7 trouncing, no contest, as if anyone cares, at least judging by the paltry crowd at Raymond James Stadium. Where was everybody?

    Bulls cornerback Deatrick Nichols (3) celebrates with teammates after making a defensive play during the first half.
  4. Former Ray Tim Beckham's over being traded, or is he?

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — As the Rays reunited Thursday with Tim Beckham for the first time since he was dealt July 31 to Baltimore, it became very clear that not everything in assessing the trade is as it appears.

    Tim Beckham, here in action Monday against the Red Sox, has hit .310, with 10 homers and 26 RBIs since going to the Orioles.
  5. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Thursday's Rays-Orioles game

    The Heater

    The Rays still talk about having a shot to make the playoffs. But recognizing and correcting mistakes will help them next year, such as Mallex Smith trying to steal third in the first. "Those are the little things we've got to find how to eliminate real quick," manager Kevin Cash said.
