Melbourne Cup 2020 Betting Odds - Il Paradiso installed as next year's favourite

International invader Il Paradiso has been installed as the $21 favourite at Sportsbet for the 2020 Melbourne Cup after passing the post in fourth in the race that stops a nation.

The European import was officially upgraded to third place following a upheld protest against Master Of Reality.

Caulfield Cup winner Mer De Glace and Surprise Baby are locked together at $26 on the second line of betting while Finche and the third past the post Prince Of Arran are at the $31 quote.

The 2018 Cup winner Cross Counter is at the $51 quote.

Surprisingly the bookmakers have bucked the common trend of installing the reigning champion as next year's favourite. Vow And Declare opened on the second line of betting at the $26 mark despite recording a gritty win.
