Melbourne Cup Odds

The Melbourne Cup odds are full of great value this year, which is what you have to expect when one runner is as heavily favoured as So You Think.

With the fixed price win odds at Luxbet hovering around the $3.00 mark, there are plenty of live chances at much longer odds than they deserve.

Americain looks very nice at $13 to win, winner of the Geelong Cup and with plenty of experience beyond 3000 metres. Could the first French winner of an Australian Group race become the first French Melbourne Cup winner? At $13, it’s worth backing him just in case.

Descarado is also a choice pick at $14 in the Melbourne Cup odds, starting from barrier 1 and the winner of the Caulfield Cup. A second place behind So You Think in the Mackinnon Stakes is a bit discouraging, but if So You Think isn’t up to the 2 miles, Descarado could take the race.

Profound Beauty looks alright at $31, even with the barrier 22 start. A second place Irish St Leger finish this year was a great improvement on a fourth place finish last year, so could Profound Beauty improve on her fifth place 2008 Melbourne Cup run to win the 2010 Melbourne Cup? Even if she can’t, $7.75 to place is also very tempting.
