Nyquist is the most likely winner of the 141st Preakness but will offer no value in the straight pools. The Superfecta offers the opportunity for more value, especially if we can avoid having the top four betting choices finish in the exact order.

Utilizing a $108 Superfecta budget, we’ll key Nyquist on the main ticket and play a back-up with second-choice Exaggerator and longshot Uncle Lino (inside speed) on top. Both are $1 tickets.

$1 Preakness Superfectas:

Ticket 1 -- $72

3 with 1,2,5 with 1,2,5,7,11 with 1,2,4,5,6,7,10,11

Ticket 2 -- $36

2,5 with 2,3,5 with 1,2,3,5,7 with 1,2,3,5,7,11

Good luck Saturday!
