    Florida Derby winner Fierceness will attempt to give owner Mike Repole his first Kentucky Derby victory when the starting gate opens in the 2024 Kentucky Derby on Saturday at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. Fierceness is the 5-2 morning-line favorite in the 2024 Kentucky Derby odds. Meanwhile Blue Grass Stakes winner Sierra Leone is the 3-1 second choice. Post time for the first leg of the Triple Crown is 6:57 p.m. ET.

    With the Kentucky Derby annually presenting the toughest handicapping challenge of the year, you'll want to see what SportsLine writer Gene Menez has to say before making any Kentucky Derby picks. Join SportsLine here to get his full Kentucky Derby picks and start winning!

    A former reporter and editor at Sports Illustrated, Menez covered an array of sports, including horse racing, for the magazine and its website for almost 14 years. Between 2010 and 2012, he served as SI's handicapper for the Triple Crown races and correctly predicted Super Saver to win the Kentucky Derby in 2010.

    In 2015, while writing for Sports on Earth, Menez accurately gave out the Kentucky Derby superfecta (American Pharoah, Firing Line, Dortmund and Frosted), which paid $1,268.20 for $2. Then in 2017, he tweeted out his Kentucky Derby picks, including Always Dreaming to win, and hit the Pick 4, which paid almost $6,900 on a $1 bet. Join SportsLine right here to see his 2024 Kentucky Derby picks!

    In a span of seven races last year for SportsLine, he cashed the winner of the Lecomte Stakes, the exacta in the Southwest Stakes ($468), the winner of the Holy Bull Stakes, the winner of the Sam F. Davis Stakes, and the trifecta in the Jenny Wiley Stakes. In May, he nailed National Treasure's win in the Preakness.

    In addition, he went 4-1 with his five head-to-head Derby picks last year, earning +2.63 units.

    Now, Menez has looked at the 2024 Kentucky Derby, made his picks and formulated his bets. Join SportsLine here to see them!

    We can tell you that Menez is high on Just a Touch, even though he is a 10-1 longshot and has raced just three times. "I love his draw, and I think he'll be right behind the pace setters," Menez told SportsLine. Menez is using Just a Touch prominently in his wagers.

    Moreover, Menez's top pick is a horse who "wins for fun." He also is high on a big double-digit longshot who's a "bomber." Menez will be using these horses in his Derby picks, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY NEED to see which horses they are before making any 2024 Kentucky Derby picks of your own!

    So who wins the 2024 Kentucky Derby? What big double-digit longshot is a must-back? And how has Menez constructed his wagers? ... Join SportsLine now to get the top 2024 Kentucky Derby picks and bets, all from the expert with a history of Derby success!
