The 150th Run for the Roses is almost here, but what if we told you that the best bet at Churchill Downs on Saturday wasn't even on the main event of the 2024 Kentucky Derby?

Don't get me wrong — we have a winner bet, exactas and a trifecta for this year's Derby in our 2024 Kentucky Derby picks and predictions. But that's just the start. Below, you'll find my full Kentucky Derby Day betting card for the major races on Saturday.

Because we know you're probably here for the Derby best bets, we'll start with my picks and predictions for Saturday's main race. The 2024 Kentucky Derby is scheduled to start at 6:57 p.m. ET on NBC, NBC Sports and Peacock. And below that, you can find my full betting card for all eight of Saturday's stakes races, including Pick 3s, Pick 5s, straight winner bets, and much more.
