The new MotoGP season will start next weekend, so it’s time to check the favorites and their odds. The question is really simple, is there anyone who can stop Spanish 6-time champion, Marc Marquez. He is the top favorite again in the 2020 MotoGP winner bets, but even he can be beaten once.
Last season Marc Marquez became champion for the fourth consecutive year, securing his title four races before the end. He won so confidently, with more than 150 points advantage that it is hard to imagine anyone else getting close to him. But surely everyone will try, and with a faster motor and with some luck some of his rivals can have a chance.
2020 MotoGP winner bets still favoring Marquez
Online sportsbooks in Spain and in other countries are favoring Marc Marquez, he has the odds of 1.665 at 1xBet Sportsbook to become champion again. That would be his seventh title, with which he could equal Valentino Rossi’s record. And as he is still only 27, he can surpass him easily in the next few years. It looks like Marquez has found the perfect team in Honda, they’ve been working together since 2013. But during this pre-season there were some critical sounds about Honda’s latest motor, we’ll see if it was an overact, or real problems are lying in the background.
Interestingly bookmakers are giving the best odds, 4.5 to French Fabio Quartararo from the rivals of Marquez. He had his debut year last season and finished already in 5th place, only 19 points from the podium. Not a bad start from the youngster, who has been compared to Marquez due to his early successes. At the age of 14 and 15, he won the Junior World Championship, and also got six Spanish championship titles. Quartararo is racing for Petronas Yamaha and is very fast, as he managed to qualify in pole positions three times last season. He also finished on the podium 7 times, which is a superb performance from a rookie.
Other big rivals
Also riding for Yamaha we find another huge Spanish talent, Maverick Vinales who is also mentioned by online gambling sites in Spain as a favorite. Vinales won the Moto3 World Championship in 2013, he has been competing in MotoGP since 2015. He finished in 3rd place both 2017 and 2019, winning two races last year. As the new Yamaha motor was producing great results on the pre-season tests, fans of Vinales can be hopeful.
2020 MotoGP winner bets can’t ignore one of the most experienced riders, Italian Andrea Dovizioso from the favorites. After winning the 125cc championship in 2004, he wasn’t very lucky, finishing three times as a runner-up in MotoGP. The Ducati rider was second last year as well, after winning two races, including the season opener Qatar Race. So he must like that ring, we will see if he can start the season in the same way again.
And some other familiar names
We have to mention 7-time world champion Valentino Rossi, who hasn’t got tired of competing yet. He is a real legend, and at the age of 41, he can still compete for victory. Though he can surely win some races, it’s not very likely that he can get another world title probably in his last season. He has the odds of 26.00 to win at the end. In the field, this year we can find another Marquez, the younger brother of Marc, Alex Marquez as well. He won the Moto2 Championship last season and seems to continue the family traditions. But in his debut year, we can’t expect miracles from him, which are shown in his odds of 126.00 as well.
