Let’s analyze the Elitloppet 2021 odds to make our predictions. Even if most of the statistics forecast Don Fanucci’s victory there are other promising harnesses in the scene.
Elitloppet is probably the most prestigious trotting event in Europe if not on the globe. While horse carts don’t have as much attention as regular horse racing, this Swedish run is absolutely the favorite of the bookies in the region. So, it’s not a surprise that online sportsbooks in Sweden have created their ante-post wagers right after the 2020 Elitloppet finished. Back then, we published our early 2021 Elitloppet betting predictions. Now, the race is so close as it will take place at the end of this May, we will take another look at the statistics to help you with this last-minute ante-post option.
Elitloppet is a 1-mile long, Group-1 harness race. It’s part of the European Trotting Union’s highest class tournament the UET Master Series. The event is traditionally organized at the Solvalla Racetrack in Stockholm since 1952.
Elitloppet 2021 Odds are Tall as Always
As most of the 1-mile-horse races, harness races also have tall odds since there are always plots and twists in the outcome. Even more, it’s nearly impossible to surely predict who will stand on the top of the podium. Trotting is even more exciting. As the harnesses can easily distract each other, and even the fastest horses can fail as a consequence of a bad position. The icing on the cake is that harness racing is even more dangerous than its regular sibling. So, as you can see in the table below from our selected Elitloppet 2021 Odds, nothing is decided yet. One way or another, let’s take a closer look to make our wagers before the ante-post market closes at the NordicBet Sportsbook.
|Don Fanucci Zet||7.25|
|Vivid Wise As||7.75|
While the leading horses are the same, Vivid Wise As, and Seismic Wave took the lead both with odds above 7.00.
NordicBet’s Predictions Forecast Don Fanucci’s Victory
Based on the Elitloppet 2021 betting odds, Don Fanucci Zet is going to achieve victory in the Solvalla Racetrack at the end of this month. His odds are 7.25 at the NordicBet Sportsbook. This is the shortest in the scene as you can see in the table above as well. Probably, he is the most promising equine since last summer, as he surmounted most of his opponents at all the big races. Now he is in the age to participate in Elitloppet as well. What makes his victory even more likely is the fact that his multiplier at NordicBet is getting lower and lower week by week.
According to the Elitloppet 2021 Odds, Vivid Wise As and Very Kronos are the other Potential Shoo-Ins
If you take a glimpse at the table above, you can see that despite Don Fanucci is the first the other top competitor’s odds are neck by neck. In fact, below the odds of 12.00, all the horses can achieve the so wanted victory. Even more, the multiplier differences between the first four harnesses are so tiny that nothing is decided yet. Despite Don Fanucci Zet leads the Elitloppet 2021 odds with his 7.25, the Italian Vivid Wise As right behind him with a slightly taller 7.75. We shouldn’t forget the North-American equine sensation, Seismic Wave, and the local Very Kronos either.
Also, according to the overall runtimes and further statistics, Very Kronos and Don Fanucci Zet have nearly the same chance to finish in the first place. Still, Fanucci overtook everyone in the scene in the practice, so, most of the online gambling news in Sweden favor his victory.
Bet on both Don Fanucci, Vivid Wise As, and Very Kronos To Finish in the Top 3 for a Safe Bet
Thus, while it’s nearly impossible to surely predict the absolute winner of the 2021 Elitloppet, one of the top horses will be surely on the podium. Even more, it’s very likely that the Top 3 will be chosen from the horses which we mentioned in the previous paragraph. So, in short, your best option to place your stakes safely if you bet on both the top-four horses to finish on the podium. Or, at least three you select. What makes this betting strategy even more sensible that with each bet you earn points on NordicBet’s Racing Championship that we describe in the next paragraph.
