2012 Kentucky Derby Odds: Bodemeister Slips, Union Rags Odds-On Favorite. For Now.

Kentucky Derby odds have changed in the last few hours, following some heavy betting action in the run up to the 138th running of the Run for the Roses. Bodemeister was the favorite when the morning line was released, at 4-1 odds, but ceded the 'favorite' spot by sliding to 8-1 this afternoon. Union Rags, holding steady at 9-2 odds, now holds that distinction.
