Belgian Grand Prix
The Formula 1 season is back, which means sports betting fans will be more than happy to welcome the return of the blistering pace and awe-inspiring driving from the world’s best drivers.
The Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps is the perfect backdrop to resume the fast and furious races the current Formula 1 season is built on. There are favourites to win the race, but the month-long break may have helped a team or two improve their machines. Live betting pundits will have a grand time skimming through betting odds to find the perfect punt.
The obvious favourites to win the race are the Ferraris. Lewis Hamilton – the biggest favourite to win the race at 1.60 outright odds – and the rest of the Mercedes team may be keeping up with the Italian Stallion, but they have been holding the leash the entire season. Sebastian Vettel (4.00) is the likely racer to start on pole.
Kimi Raikkonen (11.00) may not have won any race this season, but he is intimately familiar with Belgium: he won four times in this track in his career. Fans and rivals better take note of what he can do on the track.
Mercedes surely won’t let up on Ferrari to catch up on the Driver Standings and build a solid lead in the Constructor Championship. Valtteri Bottas (4.50) is also having a fantastic season and will fight alongside his team-mate to pressure Vettel.
Red Bull Racing have been on the tail-end of the conversation lately, but they do have powerful engines and very talented drivers to push the cars to the limit. Both Max Verstappen (23.00) and Daniel Ricciardo (29.00) have a good chance of making the race more interesting to fans.
While the other racers have more chances of discovering a new insect than win in this race, it’d be notable to take a note of some of them. Fernando Alonso (1001.00) may be struggling with McLaren, but he is still a talented driver that could win points if given a slight opportunity. Esteban Ocon (501.00), Felipe Massa (501.00), Sergio Perez (501.00) and Nico Hulkenberg (801.00) will make the battle for the podium interesting as well.
The Belgian Grand Prix will be chock-full of moments and racing fun for everybody, and Sunday can’t come soon enough.
