Gambling911.com has your Breeders Cup 2017 contenders and latest odds.

Breeders Cup Classic post time favorites have won a quarter of those races historically, a very good stat indeed.

Bet the trifecta as the favorite has finished among the top three in 60% of all Breeders Cup Classic races.

The favorite here was Gun Runner early on but Arrogate is a close co-favorite and both should figure into any trifecta. 

From DRF.com:

Arrogate overcame a horrible start to beat Gun Runner in the World Cup, but since then, he has lost both his starts, while Gun Runner has never been better, winning three straight Grade 1 races.

What appeared clear on March 25 – that Arrogate is superior to Gun Runner – is no longer a certainty.

One might also consider the long shot Gunnevera at 30/1 odds.

SportsLine's Jody Demling has nine straight Kentucky Derby winning picks under his belt and believes Gunnevera has a shot here.

One surprise: Gunnevera, who finished seventh in the Kentucky Derby and second in the Travers, makes a strong run despite opening at 30/1. Demling knows Gunnevera is the most experienced of all the three-year-olds in this race. Plus, the Classic has been won by a three-year-old three straight years and 12 times in 33 runnings.

Demling is especially high on a major sleeper from a highly successful barn that would net any backer a huge payday. He's sharing which horse it is, along with his entire projected leaderboard, over at SportsLine.
