Gambling911.com has a few good Breeders Cup Classic 2016 betting tips and strategies along with picks.
California Chrome One of the Top Picks
He’s the favorite, and at +110 odds, California Chrome is irresistible with some nice betting value. Chrome is currently on a 6-for-6 streak looking to go perfect on the year.
California Chrome vs. Arrogate
Probably one of the better strategies when betting the Breeders Cup Classic 2016 is to focus on California Chrome’s toughest competition – at least on paper – and that would be Arrogate.
The Blue Grass Wise Man of Forbes writes:
I think the track odds on Chrome are fair, actually. Talk about indestructible. There aren’t really words to describe what he has accomplished, and it’s a kind of Seabiscuit fairy tale, if you want to know the truth, what with his relative lack of pedigree and his strength. He’s also the horse of a lifetime for his trainer, and for his owners, and for his jockey. All that said, the architecture of Arrogate, if that’s the right word for it, is shockingly beautiful. Arrogate is that kid that comes out of college into the big leagues and you just know he’s going to get better. The question is, is he good enough now to beat Chrome. It’s a big test for him. That’s the essence of the Breeders’, right there.
Track Experience and Success
