Jeremy Plonk's Best Bets for Thursday 6/16

By Jeremy Plonk  (Xpressbet Editor-in-chief) 

Xpressbet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his top plays for Wednesday.

Belmont Race 3 (4:09 p.m. ET/1:09 p.m. PT)

#2 Dangerous Edge (4-1 ML)

Clear runner-up last time to an odds-on, class-dropping obvious winner for Bill Mott. Easier spot today and note trainer Rob Atras' second attempt with him since taking over the controls. This barn moves them up typically in performance. Win bet.

Belmont Race 7 (6:15 p.m. ET/3:15 p.m. PT)

#8 Amount (5-1 ML)

3-year-old takes on older horses, but it's not a deep group. He's won 3 in a row after dropping in class and now gets into the starter allowance ranks where he should fit strongly. Well-bred Curlin colt for Todd Pletcher has versatile running style that can pay dividends over a mile. Win bet.

A Numbers Game: Be careful betting baseball games right now, if they don’t involve teams still trying to make the playoffs. Teams that have clinched or teams that are completely out of it will be approaching games far differently. View more tips.
