Alpha Kentucky Derby Odds at 14 to 1 Overnight Saturday Not Much Value

Alpha was coming in at 14-1 odds to win the 2012 Kentucky Derby overnight and into the morning hours of race day.

Considering his slow starts and the fact that he has had gate issues, 14-1 odds is hardly a fair price.  Not to mention his post position at 11 has a poor history for winning.
