Giant Finish will battle it out with Revolutionary in the stretch. Revolutionary will win by a length.

Revolutionary is the slight favorite right now in win pool, Orb is the heavy favorite in the Brooklyn/Belmont Double in the will pays.

DRF and the track oddsmaker only set what they think will be the odds. The money determines what the actual odds and payoffs will be. They are only saying that, based on very little money wagered on Friday, Revolutionary is a very slight favortie over Orb... probably by only a few hundred dollars .This article is ridiculous as there will be millions more dollars wagered before the post time favorite is known. In all likelihood that will be Orb.
