Yes, You Can Bet the Kentucky Derby in Michigan

Michigan joined the sports betting party in 2020. Michigan sports fans have gotten used to the legal sports betting process for the last couple of years. However, the rules that govern horse racing are slightly different from typical sports betting.

Thankfully, it’s legal to bet on horse racing in the state of Michigan too. Typical sportsbooks like DraftKings, FanDuel, Caesars, and others won’t have the Kentucky Derby listed. The good news is the TVG app is here for Michigan bettors all the same.

How to Bet on Horse Racing

Horse racing is very different from typical sports betting. There are no game lines, over-unders, or player props when it comes to the Kentucky Derby. Experienced horse racing fans can skip this part, but newer fans can figure out the best way to bet here.

Let’s take a look at some of the most popular ways to bet on horse racing.

Win, Place, Show

This is the most simple way to bet on the Kentucky Derby. Win, place, and show represent the top three finishing positions in the race. Remember, this $200 risk-free bet from TVG is for players who place a win bet.

“Place” refers to the second-place finisher and “show” is for the third-place horse. The odds vary for each type of bet.

Exotic Bets

These are a bit different from the typical win, place, and show bets. Exotic bets are the way to win big money on horse races. There are two types of exotic bets — vertical and horizontal. Let’s start with vertical betting first.

Vertical exotic bets are also referred to as exactas, trifectas, and superfectas.

Exacta: This bet hits if bettors correctly pick the win and place horses.

Trifecta: Trifecta includes the show bet.

Superfecta: Surprise, surprise. This type of bet is a wager on the first four horses.

Horizontal betting is more like a traditional parlay wager. This type of bet includes bets on horses in separate races.
