Bettors trying to lock in odds for Belmont Stakes 2023 may find value in Nevada if they are trying to beat consensus favorite Forte.

The Eclipse Award winner trained by Todd Pletcher was best-priced Saturday at noon EDT at 5-2. That was not only in the ever-fluctuating track prices at Belmont Park but also in the fixed odds at Circa Sportsbook and the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas. Caesars had Forte at 2-1, a price that he has flashed at times in the pari-mutuels since those pools opened Friday.

Second choice Angel of Empire was 4-1 at Circa, better than the 7-2 in nationwide betting.

Conversely, Tapit Trice’s 6-1 track price was better than the 9-2 he was showing at Circa. National Treasure carried value in Las Vegas, where Circa and the Westgate had him at 6-1 while he was 5-1 at Caesars Sportsbook and 9-2 in the national pool.

As he was 8-1 at Belmont Park, Hit Show carried 10-1 odds at all three Las Vegas books. Arcangelo also could be taken at 10-1 at the Westgate while he was 8-1 in the pari-mutuels.

Fixed-odds betting for the Belmont Stakes will close at Nevada casinos and their in-state apps just before post time, which is scheduled for Saturday at 7:02 p.m. EDT.

These were the noon EDT odds at the track, as shown under BEL, and the three Nevada sportsbooks:
