The Kentucky Derby Preview

3 May 2018

Again this week, the GridCard features Rd2 of the NBA and NHL playoffs which has already produced some surprises: the Jazz stealing Gm2 in Houston, the Sharks losing then winning Gm2 in double OT, and the Cavs upsetting the Raptors in Gm1. But the most exciting GridCard bet of the week happens Saturday which marks the 144th renewal of the fastest two minutes in sports--the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. Choose your team of horses and order a Mint Julep. Post time is 6:50 EST.  You'll also find five MLB bets on tap in the First Game which concludes with a race featuring a different type of horsepower--NASCAR's AAA 400 Drive for Autism.

The most fierce MLB rivalry of all-time--Red Sox @ Yankees--heats up in the Second Game which also has some pivotal Game 5 and Game 6 NBA and NHL matchups. The unofficial fifth major--the Players Championship--offers one of the richest prize funds in golf and takes the last slot on the 2-Ball TickerKicker.
