With the top of the championship poised between the two front runners just a few points apart and the chasing pack no so far behind they can be discounted the famed Dutch TT rolls around on the calendar just at the right time to place a bet on MotoGP. Not only can you get some great odds on who’ll win on Sunday at Bet365, but the odds on that World Championship winner are getting tighter too.
MotoGP World Championship
• Daniel Pedrosa – 9/1
• Valentino Rossi – 15/2
• Andrea Dovizioso – 4/1
• Marc Marquez – 11/4
• Maverick Vinales – 4/5
There are some perpetual truths about Grand Prix racing on two wheels. First you can always bet on the MotoGP calendar to be full of small Spanish boys in leather with large throbbing machines between their legs, and second that the Dutch TT will be something special. First held in 1925, and only interrupted by that pesky World War in the forties, it’s the longest running MotoGP event on the books and if you’re going to place bet on sports in the Netherlands and back a biker on Bet365 this weekend there’s no race better.
The TT Circuit Assen is known as “The Cathedral Of Motorcycling” and it’s eighteen turns has found plenty of riders wanting along it’s 2.8 mile length over the years, and perhaps it’s the history of this hallowed ground that draws in the crowds, although, this being the Netherlands, there’s always the possibility that the proximity of pancakes, prostitution and legal recreational drugs might have something to do with it, after all you can always bet on MotoGP fans to up for a best of good times.
The Dutch TT Will Draw The Crowds Again This Weekend
Perhaps fortunately for the riders this year the race will be held on Sunday, Saturday likely to be touched by rain, and the further they can put between the start of the race and the heatwave that has swept the region the better. Assen is hard on the tires already and you can just bet on MotoGP riders coming a cropper if the track temperature soars. Of course anyone among the Dutch gambling laws of meteorology provide clarity of prediction on that score has forgotten just how amiss they’ve been of late.
Thus far it’s been quite a mixed bag of a season with Maverick Vinales taking an early lead in the World Championship and retaining odds at Bet365 of 4/5 with Marc Marquez just behind on 11/4 and the suddenly surprising Andrea Dovizioso storming up to 4/1 following his back to back victories at the Italian and Catalan Grand Prix. Assen however has a habit of setting the cat among the pigeons and if you’re going to bet on MotoGp this weekend picking a winner could be more difficult than it appears.
Assen Is The Perfect Place To Bet On MotoGP At Bet365
MotoGP Dutch TT Assen
• Jonas Folger – 50/1
• Johann Zarco – 25/1
• Danilo Petrucci – 20/1
• Cal Crutchlow – 20/1
• Jorge Lorenzo – 18/1
• Daniel Pedrosa – 8/1
• Andrea Dovizioso – 5/1
• Valentino Rossi – 3/1
• Maverick Vinales – 3/1
• Marc Marquez – 5/2
Bet365 will tell you the best bet on MotoGP this Sunday is Marc Marquez, he’s garnering a neat 5/2 to grab the win, but right behind him both Maverick Vinales and “The Doctor” himself, Valentino Rossi, both get 3/1 with Dovizioso on 5/1 and the often brilliant Daniel Pedrosa at 8/1, and if that doesn’t sound close, understand that the next rider down the line is Jorge Lorenzo at 18/1. It remains to be seen if the Ducati will outpace the Hondas, but that Yamaha will be hard to beat especially if Mav puts it on poll.
Perhaps the most interesting bet on MotoGP however will be on Jonas Folger who put in the fastest lap around the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona and has always threatened to break into winning form and there’s simply nowhere better to do it than Assen, and at 50/1 at Bet365 it would make Dutch gambling news headlines if he pulled it off. Worth an each way wager? I’d say so, after all anything could happen this Sunday and with just 7 points in it at the top of the Championship the riders will ensure it will.
