Coverage for will start at 2:30pm ET on NBC. Post time is set for 6:57pm ET.

With the field officially set and post positions drawn, I’m ready to release my win/place/show predictions.

The official morning line odds, which I will use for this article, are released once the post positions are set. If you aren’t familiar with the morning-line odds, be sure to check out our Kentucky Derby betting guide.

Can’t get to your local sportsbooks to place a bet on the race. You can also wager online. In fact, several sportsbooks release odds to win the race several weeks in advance.
