While it’s all fine and well to be ‘rolling in dough’ the fact of the matter is that it doesn’t take a ton of money to make for a successful online betting wager. To that end, we’re going to examine the smartest way to bet $100 at the quickly approaching 2016 Belmont Stakes.With the third and final leg of the annual Triple Crown set for this Saturday, let’s get started.

Taking a Closer Look at the Smartest Way To Bet $100 at the Belmont Stakes

When: June 11, 2016-05- 27Where: Belmont Park Race Track, Elmont, NYTV Schedule: NBC 5-7 PM ETIf I had a $100 dollars to wager at the 2016 Belmont Stakes, here’s what I’d do and a plan that maybe you should follow as well.

$30 on the outright winner

First, I’m putting $30 on the outright winner. If you’ve been keeping up with my Belmont Stakes previews and predictions, then you know who I like to bring home the bacon. Let’s jus say…it’s not the favorite – and if my pick wins, the payoff is huge for a simple $30 wager.

$15 Exacta

Next, I’d place a $15 wager on a two-horse exacta to finish in my predicted order. Of course, if they do, the return will be profitable to say the least, even on a $15 wager.

$15 Exacta Box

Of course, I’m covering my rear end by throwing another $15 on the exacta box, just in case my top two predicted finishers end the 2016 Belmont Stakes in the opposite order of what I believe it will be.

$10 Trifecta

Make no mistake about it…a simple $10 wager on a straight trifecta will pay off huge! Just last year, the 2015 Belmont Stakes paid a whopping $54.75 on a $1 Trifecta wager.

$10 Trifecta Box

Next. I’m throwing $10 bucks on a trifecta and box it, just in case my picks want to ‘act up’ and finish in an order other than the one I’m picking.

$20 Four-horse Superfecta

Last but not least, I’m going all in by dropping $20 on a four-horse Superfecta wager. The 2015 Belmont Stakes paid a mind-boggling $285.00 on a $1 Superfecta wager and for me, that’s a possible return you just can’t pass up.
