Preakness Stakes 2022 predictions, top bets: Expert picks for win, place, show, exacta, trifecta, superfecta

At 86 years old, D. Wayne Lukas still proved he was at the top of his game two weeks ago when he guided Secret Oath to a win in the Kentucky Oaks. Now, he’s entering his prized filly into Saturday’s 2022 Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course with designs on making her the seventh filly in history to win the race and tying the record with his seventh career Preakness title. Secret Oath will break from the No. 4 post following the 2022 Preakness Stakes post draw. Lukas last won the Preakness in 2013 with Oxbow at 15-1, but Secret Oath has shorter 2022 Preakness Stakes odds at 9-2. Epicenter was the runner-up in the 2022 Kentucky Derby and the leading points-earner on the Derby Trail. He’s the 6-5 favorite in the 2022 Preakness Stakes field. Post time for the Preakness 2022 is 7:01 p.m. ET. With so much to consider while making your 2022 Preakness Stakes picks, a little expert help can go a long way.

The 2022 Preakness Stakes will mark the 147th Run for the Black-Eyed Susans. While the race briefly left Pimlico Race Course and has been run at varying lengths at different times of the year, it has been locked in at 1 3/16 miles as the second leg of the Triple Crown since 1932. The only exception was in 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic forced the race to be moved to October, where it was the third and final leg of that season’s Triple Crown.

Given all the history, there’s a method to picking which horses to focus on for exacta, trifecta and superfecta bets in a Preakness Stakes like this, and SportsLine expert Jody Demling knows what it is. He can help you make the best 2022 Preakness Stakes picks possible.

A fixture in the horse racing world who has been writing about, talking about and betting on races for years, Demling has been on-point with his horse racing bets. In fact, this is the same handicapper who has called the Preakness winner nine times in the last 17 years. In the 2020 Preakness Stakes, Demling nailed the Swiss Skydiver-Authentic exacta.

He hit the exacta in the Wood Memorial in April. Last year, he hit the exacta, trifecta and superfecta in the Belmont Stakes. He’s also hit the Derby-Oaks double at Churchill Downs 10 times in the last 14 years, including this year’s massive upset with Rich Strike. That means he held a ticket with the winners of both the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby all but four times in his last 14 tries.

In addition, at one point in 2020, he picked the winners of six straight races: the Saudi Cup, Gotham Stakes, Rebel Stakes, Louisiana Derby, Florida Derby and Belmont Stakes. Anyone who has followed him on these races is way up. Now, he’s sharing all of his 2022 Preakness Stakes bets here.

Top 2022 Preakness Stakes expert picks

Here’s a refresher on these types of bets from SportsLine’s Jody Demling:

Preakness Stakes Trifecta: Pick the first-, second- and third-place finishers in the correct order. A $1 trifecta returned $162.70 at the 2021 Preakness Stakes with Rombauer, Midnight Bourbon and Medina Spirit.

While Demling has no quibbles with the favorite status of Epicenter (6-5) and Early Voting (7-2), he plans to hold tickets with Secret Oath (9-2) as well as four double-digit underdogs who could really spice up the payouts. You can see his picks here.
