This year’s Melbourne Cup horse race is going to be played out on the 6th of November 2018, and whilst you are probably of the mind that it is way too early to bet on that race, nothing could be further than the truth, and you do need to start betting right now!
The reason for me saying that, is by you making your way over to our featured betting sites, that being BetFred, you can access the ante post betting market on this year’s Melbourne Cup, and having studied it in detail this morning there really is some value to be had on several of the horses scheduled to take part in that major horse race!
If you are a favourite backer, then one thing that you are not going to be able to miss when perusing the ante post begging market on the Melbourne Cup are the huge odds available on the early favourite to win that race, that horse is Withhold which is on offer currently at odds of 10/1!
Even the second favourite looks a value bet, for that second favourite at the time of compiling this news story was Hamada and who is going to be able to resist the 14/1 odds that are available to you over at the Betfred betting site!
Each-Way Melbourne Cup Betting
If you want some ideas of which the best horses may just be to back but via an each-way type of bet there are no shortages of them that are offering value on the Betfred ante post betting market.
Three horses all chalked up at odds of 16/1 are Cross Counter, Magic Circle and Kings Will Dream, but if you fancy backing a 20.1 runner then there are found of them to pick from and they are Johannes Vermeer, Rare Rhythm, Rekindling and Marmelo.
Could an Outsider Win the Melbourne Cup?
There is nothing stop anybody who does fancy the chances of any of the horses that are taking part in this year’s Melbourne Cup taking advantage of the rather generous odds available at BetFred on each of them.
To give you some more ideas as to the odds available on some of lesser fancied and outsiders that have the chance of winning or getting placed let me run through each of the horses I haven’t yet mentioned.
Frontiersman, Mirage Dancer, Tosen Basil, Stratum, Desert Skyline and Latrobe are all 25/1, you can get 33/1 on Ace High and Almandin, 40/1 are up for grabs on horses such as Best Solution, Red Cardinal, Chelkar and Red Verdon.
There are two horses however that are certainly not attracting any money and are completely friendly one of the ante post betting market this year for the Melbourne Cup, and those horses are Big Duke and Nakeeta.
However, it could be the case that one of the two rank outsiders do bolt home and win this race and if you are prepared to lay your money down on either of them you can currently get odds of 50/1 on them both!
