Azerbaijan GP Beckons F1 Betting Odds Closer This Weekend

F1 Betting Odds

Last year it became a legend. This year the circus that is Formula One returns to Azerbaijan for the street circuit race around Baku a little earlier than last but a quick look at the F1 betting odds on offer would tell even the most uninformed in a poker room in India that this is one race that’s no open and shut case. The question is will it be chaos once again and if so, who’ll take advantage of the situation to grab a place on that podium?

  • Will the race be as chaotic as it was in 2017?
  • Could Daniel Ricciardo win it again?
  • Are the F1 betting odds on offer too short?
  • Is this the race the bookies are afraid of?

Lance Stroll is 2000/1 to win the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in 2018, which is (given the team for which he drives and the superiority of the cars being driven by others) fair enough really, or at least it would be at any other Formula One race, but let’s remember he got a creditable third place amid the insanity of the 2017 race in Baku and if you hunt around a bit you can still find an each-way bet online that’ll pay you 400/1 on him doing it again, and if those aren’t tempting F1 betting odds, just what are, people?

Now naturally if you’re out to pick a winner Lewis Hamilton is favorite at 11/10, Sebastian Vettel get’s 7/4 and Daniel Ricciardo, Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen all hang out at the 9/1 mark but who’d do that when you can get an effective 2/1 on Kimi Raikkonen getting a podium place, or 50/1 on Fernando Alonso managing the feat? Where typically the bookies would cite massively long odds on the lesser drivers not blessed at Ferrari, Mercedes and Red Bull, when it comes to Azerbaijan things are different.

Could Lance Stroll Find The Podium Again This Year?

Anyone at a casino in India that might have forgotten what a bizarre race Baku produced last time won’t understand why it’s the bane of the bookies and provokes somewhat conservative F1 betting odds. The early safety cars because of debris on the track, the red flag, the incident between Hamilton and Vettel where it appeared Lewis brake-tested the German and the Ferrari driver struck back…..physically banging wheels with the Brit. It was the race of 2017 that nearly came to blows.

  • Nico Hulkenberg – 250/1
  • Carlos Sainz – 250/1
  • Fernando Alonso – 250/1
  • Kimi Raikkonen – 10/1
  • Max Verstappen – 9/1
  • Valtteri Bottas – 9/1
  • Daniel Ricciardo – 9/1
  • Sebastian Vettel – 7/4
  • Lewis Hamilton – 11/10

The lack of predictability that last year signposts means those of you doing some online gambling in India on F1 won’t get the astronomical odds you might on these outside-chance drivers. When you can only get 1000/1 on Brendon Hartley winning (as likely in reality as aliens arriving and declaring you overlord of the known universe) instead of five times that you just know the bookies are playing it close to their chest. But will there be the same chaos at all or have they all learned their lesson?

Well Max Verstappen lunged at Vettel in China, Lewis Hamilton has begun sulking because people dare race him at all and Daniel Ricciardo isn’t adverse to a little risk-heavy maneuvering when the need arises. Add to this the season is closer than anyone guessed it might be, only 24 points between the top five drivers, with just 9 between leader Vettel and 2nd place Hamilton and you probably don’t need to be an expert on Indian gambling laws to guess that those F1 betting odds on offer reflect an expectation.
