What a difference a couple of weeks make. Sportsbook.com bettors that were fortunate enough to have a wager on long shot, ‘Mine that Bird' cashed in at 50-1 at The Kentucky Derby.

With a victory under his saddle, Sportsbook.com handicappers currently have the three year-old gelding at +450 to win Saturday's Preakness Stakes. At +150 ‘Rachel Alexandra' is the heavy favorite and rightly so; the filly is undefeated in 2009.

Some Sportsbook.com bettors profited on the generous odds ‘Mine that Bird' offered at the Derby, but nobody took home the $1 Million in the Triple Crown Challenge. So as promised, a seven figure payout will be on the line for The Preakness Stakes.

Wager just $5.00 on Saturday's Preakness and correctly predict the finishing order of the Top 10 horses to cash-in on Sportsbook.com's biggest ever Triple Crown promotion. Obviously, going 10-for-10 is no easy task, that's why the $1 Million will be carried over to the Belmont if no one achieves perfection this Saturday.

There's also a $10,000.00 Guaranteed Prize Pool up for grabs for those that wager on and make selections for the Triple Crown races. Members are awarded points for every correct selection they make with the Top 5 point earners cashing in on the $10K.

With the most lucrative Triple Crown promotion in the industry to go along with countless ways to wager on the all of the races, there is no reason not to make Sportsbook.com your home for your Preakness Stakes action.

It was a rather chaotic first couple of rounds in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. Plenty of parity throughout the regular season, so not much of a surprise when there were surprises. However, some of the victims were teams which play at a slower pace.
