With bets flowing on the race and horses getting scratched, Kentucky Derby odds have been on the move since Monday, so let's take a look at some of the most interesting line adjustments to this point.

Kentucky Derby Odds Movement

King Russell (80-1 to 39-1)

Five short days ago King Russell was the biggest Kentucky Derby longshot on the board at 80-1 odds.

However, that price has shortened to 39-1, aligning King Russell with Jace's Road and Cyclone Mischief as the biggest longshots as of Saturday morning.

Disarm (50-1 to 27-1)

Disarm has looked good so far this week at Churchill Downs, so this movement is likely due to money flowing on this horse over the past few days.

While still theoretically a longshot when looking at the entire Kentucky Derby odds board, Disarm has been a popular high-upside pick throughout the week and could attract even more action leading up to tonight's race.

Rocket Can (25-1 to 36-1)

While the Rocket Can's odds movement might not pop off the page, it's the direction that this number has gone that is so interesting.

In general, the Kentucky Derby odds board has tightened this week. However, Rocket Can has actually gotten longer, slipping from 25-1 to 36-1.
